For some time I keep getting regular emails from photobucket that my account needs "urgent attention".
I never moved all my photos from there and never pay them.......so what will they eventually do with the pics????
Just curious if anyone knows or have heard anything. (I've used google since photobucket wanted me to pay big bucks to stay.)

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

That is what they are trying to do, get you to pay big bucks to get your photos. I am locked out of Photobucket and also Webshots. The only way I can get mine is to sign up. I did take the ones on here and email them to my self then transfer to my google account in the cloud, whatever that means. I just clicked you Photobucket on here and if I copy the address and send it to my self I will have them on my email.

When they threw the stuff into the fan I closed my account. They froze my photos which was OK because everything I had on PB were copies of images I have on my computer and backup HD. I did tell them that if I caught them selling ANY of my images without my permission I'd sue them. Apparently they threw the old management team out and are trying to repair things. It'll be a cold day where politicians live before I go back to PB. Some reading below.

advice i give anyone posting photos online
post a slightly cropped version with the metadata removed (also know as Exif data)
metadata = stuff like date, time, camera model and settings, GPS location and direction

metadata can be modified by more computer savvy folks so even your original is not absolute proof that you are the creator of the image
having extra pixels around the edge that no one else does is fairly good proof you have the original

Is Webshots doing the same thing? I am locked out of most of my early pictures of my truck transformation.
