You now have to pay for the privilege to host 3'rd party screen captures with them. So I am moving all my business to Imgur. I see others using what use to be their old service having the same problem. I thought I would let others know about this too.

Yep, I've been noticing that as well. I have always been a fan on Imgur.

Apparently Photobucket wants out of 3rd party stuff completely because the fee is $399 per account now.

At a guess there is a fairly large number of businesses using the service as $400 a year is typical for business use. Since there is no $40 option for individual use it looks like they want out of the individual market. With that once some personal issues I am having that don't allow me to use my desktop are resolved I will be moving everything somewhere else.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Photobucket has been crap for awhile at least for individuals. I haven't dealt with the business side.
