I was GOING to do a post on my finished overskirt for the dinner dress, but it appears my ten years' loyalty to Photobucket is officially done, so I'm setting up a flickr account and sending them a nastygram tonight instead. They're getting rid of their 3rd-party hosting feature on all accounts that don't pay $40/MONTH. I do pay to host my photos (not a lot, but 10 years of costuming makes for a lot of pictures, so I don't mind having a paid account) so the 3rd-party hosting will go through the end of the year for me. Buuuuut I'm certainly not going to pay FORTY DOLLARS A MONTH so I can link pictures on fricking DW, so I'm essentially going to lose 10 years of pictures in this journal. (ETA: Not to mention everything on Blogger. Arrgh.)

Unless I want to go through over a thousand journal entries and relink them to flickr, once I get everything uploaded there. I don't.

So...slightly pissed at the moment!

Fuck! I've been using Photobucket too.

I completely missed these news. I was planning on leaving Photobucket anyway but I thought I still had time to set things up. Do you know how I might find out how much time I have before the 3rd party image hosting ends for me?

Damn, not only are all my photos on Photobucket, but it also hosts the images in the Guild Web site. BUGGER!

Yeah, that is really shitty. I used to use photobucket but transitioned to Flickr. I still have older stuff on Photobucket that I have been slowly, for years, trying to move to Flickr. But I know I'm going to have broken images everywhere. That's a ridiculous extortion fee from Photobucket. Lame. I'm sorry you are getting screwed by it.

Rather than Flickr, I would HIGHLY recommend Ipernity. It's so much better than Flickr in terms of use and in terms of privacy. Flickr was bought out years ago and they decided to change things without consulting their users - and literally told the users to shut it when the user based complained. I've been using Ipernity for years and love it.

The users banded together and saved it. It won't shut down.
