On images hosted to other sites from free accounts, we’ve created a subtle modification by overlaying a watermark that says “Proudly hosted by Photobucket.”
This will not affect images you share via social media, images you email to family and friends, or your images that people see when they visit your Photobucket profile.
It’s important to stress that your original images are uncompromised!
We remain committed to delivering value to Photobucket members. If you don’t like the watermark you can remove it by upgrading to one of our low-cost premium plans. In addition to removing the watermark on hosted images, you will have access to numerous other benefits that make storing, hosting, and sharing your images easier.
In the coming months, our feature set is going to expand as we roll out a new website, new mobile apps, and continue to enhance the benefits of those premium plans based on your feedback.
