We’re celebrating our 20th Birthday with a sale!


Hey everyone, gather 'round, because we have some exciting news to share. Photobucket, the online cloud storage company who safeguards over 17 billion photos and videos worldwide, is turning 20 years old this year! That's right, it's been two whole decades since we first launched the site, and boy oh boy, have things changed.

Back in 2003, when Photobucket was founded, digital cameras were becoming more and more popular. People were taking more photos than ever before, but storing and sharing them was still a challenge. Photobucket was one of the first companies to provide an online platform for storing and sharing images. It quickly became popular among bloggers and online forum users as a way to host their images without having to worry about bandwidth limitations or server space.

But Photobucket didn’t stop there. In 2005, we launched a video hosting service, allowing users to upload and share their videos as well. This was a game-changer for the online video industry, as previously it was difficult and expensive to host and share videos online.

As smartphones became more popular, Photobucket adapted once again. In 2011, we launched a mobile app, allowing users to access their photos and videos from anywhere and share them on the go. And in 2013, Photobucket partnered with Twitter to allow users to easily share their photos and videos on the social media platform.

But Photobucket wasn’t content to rest on its laurels. In 2014, we introduced the Photobucket Print Shop, allowing users to create and order prints, canvases, and other products featuring their photos. And in 2016, Photobucket launched Photobucket Stories, a storytelling platform that allows users to create multimedia narratives using their photos and videos.

In recent years, we’ve continued to innovate and improve our platform. Today we offer features like automatic backup and sync, so users can easily keep all their photos and videos in one place. We’ve also improved our image editing tools, making it easier than ever to enhance and improve your photos before sharing them. Speaking of sharing, with Photobucket you can share your favorite photos and videos with your family and friends on both iOS and Android alike. And we do it all while maintaining a carbon-neutral footprint.

Now 20 years later, we’re celebrating our 20th Birthday with an amazing sale on our 250GB photo and video storage plan. For just $5 a month (or even less if you pay yearly), you can store your precious memories in the cloud and access them from anywhere. That’s less than the cost of a cup of coffee!

So, why choose Photobucket over other online cloud storage options? For one thing, we’ve been around for 20 years, which is a pretty impressive track record in the ever-changing tech industry. We’ve also continued to innovate and improve our platform over the years, adding new features and improving existing ones.

But perhaps most importantly, Photobucket is a platform designed specifically for storing and sharing photos and videos, compression-free. And we don't take your privacy for granted, using some of the most sophisticated encryption tools on the planet. While other cloud storage options may offer more storage space or additional features, they don’t necessarily prioritize the quality of your photos and videos like Photobucket. What you upload today and what you download tomorrow, or years from now, will never change, guaranteed.

If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable, and user-friendly backup cloud storage option for your photos and videos, look no further than Photobucket. 

So, let's all raise a glass to Photobucket, for 20 years of memories and countless pictures of cats. Here's to the next 20!
