    Photobucket no longer allowing hot linked images

    Hey guys. For those who use photobucket, they no longer allow hotlinking of the images. I put up PixelsBin as a free alternative since I have some buddies who upload photos here and there, me included. Just throwing this out there if you guys need to upload pics.

    Thanks

    Bumping this once to the top. Feel free to use pixelsbin.com it's a free alternative to photobucket and allows images linking or bbcode directly to the forum. Yea its free to MM members.

    Cool. I see a lot of guest uploads. Would recommend create an account so images don't expire after 30 days.

    Found this. It seems to work (for viewing).

    If you use Google Chrome, you can nab this extension to by-pass the Photobucket block and pictures will display as they used to without the stupid bandwidth overlay picture.

    Someone on another thread posted this trick and I am super glad they did, because now the thousands of photos in the build can be viewed again.

    Almost considered proposing a crowd fund to get his Photobucket unlocked. Re-uploading to say imgur or any other host and re-linking to the whole thread would take forever, and PIP would aswell. But PIP would have the benefit of picture retention and back-up-ability.

    Just thought I'd share

    That's a great woraround as well, especially fir those with existing images already hosted.

    For new posts, an alternative open and free to all
