I have the same problem. I lost a lot of sales because my pictures are not displayed. i have sent an email for support but so far I have not received a feedback. Please, How to solve this problem?
OH and why cant we submit trouble tickets anymore? You will take our money but not provide support to paying users?
Again tell me why i should pay for these services when other websites work and have real support?
Why don’t any of the SHARE features work? I used to be able to click on one of the 4 option, copy the code then use it on another website.
Now it doesn’t work at all
If I cant share my stuff then why bother having a PB account?
We apologize for the inconvenience. This is a known issue and we are actively working to resolve it. Thank you for your patience.
Photobucket, holding pics hostage for money? THATS illegal in EVERY STATE of the USA, if said user TOOK the pics them self, then they OWN then, Photobucket holding them for money is ILLEGAL……
Hows this? SPEAK TO MY LAWYER!!!! ANYONE that reads this, we can get together and file a class action suit against photobucket for holding our pics for money, as if EACH ONE of us took those pics (In my case I OWN the copyright, and photo rights to them ALL on my account) Meaning, they’re on the losing end………. They CAN NOT “sell” your pictures back to you, YOU OWN THEM. They don’t!
Photobucket, you’ll be hearing from my Lawyer if my pics can’t be gotten back for download on MY Computer!
Its called Copyright Infringement……
having same problem is sad they done this to ppl really sad………
What’s going on Photobucket?
I can’t display the photo … What is the problem.
Please quick for fix it .
Hello! I’m sorry to hear you are having issues using the website Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Late last week you automatically collected $29.99 so you can again put me through his hell that you call a photo hosting service – for another 12 months.
What a surprise (not) – today it’s straight back to its old flakey self again.
SIX attempts to upload FOUR images (all less than 1MB) – FFS !!
TWO of them the titles didn’t load (despite my clicking save).
Interspersed with 4 re-directs to the login screen.
PB your PAID service really does suck !!
I have the same problem here. I have already lost a lot of customers because my pictures are not displayed and now I am to make the upgrade for 500, which costs $ 400 a year? I’m kind of angry. There is no way to pay this monthly! I was also not informed before! Shit photobucket!
The same happened to me. I have the photo published on 300 pages and these bastards put me up to 500.
DO NOT PAY! It may be difficult, but please join the rest of us, and move to another hosting service. Photobucket can pound sand as far as most of us are concerned.
It’s not letting me log in. Keeps saying an unexpected error has occurred try again later… When will this be fixed?
Hello! I’m sorry to hear you are having issues using the website Please email us at email@example.com.
You’re waiting for money … but not will get
Hello! I’m sorry to hear you are having issues. It looks like you have already contacted our support team. We’ll follow up with them and they will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
That seems to be all you people have to say for putting everyone on edge.
You know most of us will be looking for an alternative to photobucket at this point.
Why we just get robo answers. You check us for being Robots but that is all we get back.
Hi, I have the 3rd party issue too! What is the problem please?
Unfortunately, here is the answer they gave me. Unless you give them money, they will not unlock your links. Also, I don’t think the first of the 3 plans will work. I think they require you to use the most expensive one which is $400 a year.
Thanks for emailing us. Your images have been replaced with the “Look who’s popular” icon because you have used 100% of your bandwidth. Your account has been restricted for excessive usage and 3rd party hosting. In order to restore your account, please upgrade to a Plus 500 subscription.
Please note that your bandwidth limit is not related to your photo storage limit – they are two different things. Your storage limit is related to how many images/videos you’re uploading to Photobucket.com. Your bandwidth limit gauges how many times someone has viewed your image.
Click here to learn more about bandwidth.
You can remove this bandwidth cap by subscribing to a Plus 500 subscription. Plus 500 users get 500 GB of storage, unlimited linking, and unlimited 3rd party hosting benefits. To upgrade to a Plus 500 account, click your username and click on ‘Get More’ above your storage limit bar. Once you’ve completed your purchase, please email us back so we can update your account.
Hello! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can assist you with these issues further.
It’s a good damn thing I backed up all of my photos somewhere else, because I was expecting you people to pull a fast one sooner or later. I guess your timing was just about right to screw over those you had rely on your site just long enough to give them no option. I guess this is truly the Treacherous Trump era, and I noticed that many companies, such as yours, and individuals are starting to conform to his ways.
Why is my account LOCKED ?
Why Will my picture’s not show up ?
Please advise ….. SOON ….
Still having the 3rd party issue. My photos on the sites they are posted have all been replace with 3rd party hosting has been disables and to go to the address I see others are now having this issue. Has anyone gone to the address they said to?
Rob, they changed their TOS to remove 3rd party hosting unless you have a specific account type.
And pay them $399.99 a year!!
I can not view my photos on the photobucket web site when I am signed in ?? My pics are replaced by a “3rd party hosting” gage. How is that possible when I am actually on the photobucket site and signed in to my account???
The same problem: “3rd Party Hosting has been temporarily disabled”. To unlock your account visit photobucket.com/p500″. If Photobucket is changing their TOS, you MUST inform your customers about the changes!
When some webpage blanks out and tells me to disable my ad-blocker to get to continue looking at it, do you know what happens then? I don’t disable the ad-blocker. I just close the tab. That’s what happens. I also learn never to click on links to that webpage again. So, good jorb. You’ve succeeded in annoying the hell out of and driving away another potential customer.
Hey, congrats – You are now no better than ANGELFIRE. How’s it feel to be compared to that sub-tier website host? I’m downloading everything important from my albums and I’m going elsewhere.
All of a sudden, my photos that have been posted on different sites whether old or new have sporadically disappeared and there is a message in it’s place. It says “Third party hosting has been temporarily disabled. To unlock your account visit: Photobucket.com/p500” and a pic of a meter reading 100%. What is going on? Also,
I tried to post images on sites and in almsot every case, it was posting this message and a meter that was reading 100%. What is going on?
Please explain to me why the “share this photo” link is not working? In order to share I have to go to the “the magnifying glass” to C&P photo where as before all I did was click on “img” or “img thumb” plus I also keep getting error message about ablocker being installed when I want to upload, again this never happened before.
when photobuket come back normal? Many Losses!!!

Since this morning the Photobucket login page does not load up so unable to login. I asked a friend from another state to check whether the login page will load it did not.
We identified the problem and found a solution. Let us know if it continues and thank you for your patience!
Why were we not notified of this change before our photos were disabled?
I paid for ad-free, and now I am (again) getting pop-up ads.
Hello! I’m sorry to hear you are having issues with your account. Please email us at email@example.com. Thanks!
I have the same problem as DJ – yesterday the photos were showing just fine – today the photos I posted are showing as ‘Look who’s popular. Is this your photo? Upgrade to Plus 500 for 3rd party hosting’. Yes, they’re my own personal photos, of my neighbourhood and the food I’ve made.
It looks like Photobucket’s been hacked or something – I’ve never had my photos hijacked by spam before? Is there a customer service email I can use to contact Photobucket?
@TS It looks like Photobucket updated their TOS. You are seeing this message because you are consuming a very high level of bandwidth (if i’m reading it correctly). Do you mind me asking where your hosting the images that are being restricted?
You are so cool! I do not suppose I have read through something like that before.
So wonderful to discover another person with
original thoughts on this topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up.
This website is one thing that is required on the web, someone with a little originality!
Estou com problemas no photobucket, tenho diversos anúncios no Mercado Livre, e todos eles ficaram aparecendo a mesma mensagem….
Preciso que seja corrigido urgente!
Same as the others, if your hosting images on Mercado Livre, based on the new TOS update Photobucket placed, you will have to buy their Plus500 plan to remove the links.
That is what they are considering 3rd party hosting.
Cara aconteceu o mesmo comigo, tb vendo no Mercado Livre e estou desesperado pois todas as imagens dos meus layouts nos anúncio sumiram. Diz que temos que atualizar pro plano plus500 entretanto é um absurdo pagar $400 dólares. Eu vendo algumas coisinhas lá, esse valor é fora do meu alcance. Simplesmente o site me derrubou e derrubou muitos outros. Absurdo!
IT’S CRIMINAL when an advertisement for photobucket replaces all website images and not a single customer service rep has responded to any of the 6 tickets submitted. criminal!!
Been posting this a lot as i’m trying to help people understand since it’s near impossible to get in touch with Photobucket support.
@Polaco This is more than likely related to the TOS update.
If your like me, you are seeing that image because you are hitting your cap of bandwidth (network traffic) not necessarily storage.
Report photobucket to your better Business Bureau. I am and their is a possible legal action for their practices.
Holding linked photos hostage now?? How pathetic. “Look whos’s popular now. Upgrade to 3rd party 500 for only $399 a year”. This advertisement comes up even though I am way under my storage limit. No photo links without warning? Fix it NOW as Photobuckets reputation is quickly being destroyed.
When will they fix the problem of photos hosted on third-party sites? Paying $ 399.00 is absurd, we will not accept these conditions. We will cancel the registration if it does not return to normal!
@Andre Looks like this is related to the TOS update.
I would wager that your hitting that bandwidth cap. Which looks to be 100 GB a month if i’m reading it correctly.
Thank you Alan !!! You know how remove the links??
I think you need to upgrade to the plan they are requesting.
That message actually has to do with the updated TOS. It’s not in reference to your amount of storage used, but in reference to the 3rd party hosting and bandwidth limits now outlined in the TOS.
