Well it's down at the moment but it's not unusual for a site to go down occasionally.  I wouldn't panic yet  O0

Just checked and whilst I can't upload anything new at present, the images I have on PB are intact and accessible.


Only started using PB when Tinypics went down a couple of weeks back. At that point I could upload but when I tried to access an image I got an error 404 message. Just checked TP and again my images are intact and accessible and I was able to upload a new image and access it.


All a but frustrating.

I have an account with PB and Tinypic and have had problems on and off for a while now. I don't use either very much now as some forums let you drag and drop photo's now. It's only on here where I still have to upload and copy and paste the link which doesn't always work and is more trouble than it's worth. Would it not now be easier to adopt the drag and drop system??

PB has been flakey for a while.  I was using it a lot yesterday for the first time in ages and managed to get all the pictures off that I needed to.   It seems to work better ie. faster in Chrome than Firefox but still got the occasional error and had to reload a page.

I'm thinking of opening a Flickr account.

Photobucket are ending the option to embed images on third party web sites and forums etc. unless you pay a 400 dollar a year subscription. I'll dig out the link shortly...

Just checked to see if TinyPic are following suit as they're owned by PB. So far no amendment to their terms and no warning of any charges.
