Any idea how to get photos back from Photobucket?

Any idea how to get photos back from Photobucket?

They've hijacked my folder I used for CPS and I'm not willing to pay the ransom.

How did they hijack it?

They are now turning my linked images into "photobucket doesn't support this" images. The library still exists on photobucket-- but fat lot of good that does for 3rd party image serving.

I use the mobile app so maybe I should look from a PC but on the app I see a small photo and when I click an image that reads "does not support third party hosting" is all that is there. I was hoping I could click on the images I want to save and download them to my photo library and transfer them to Imgur

Ah. Yes, the PC may be the means. I see the photos on photbucket but not on the 3rd party places (like CPS).

I've been able to download all of my albums via pc. Photobucket will zip them and let you know when they are ready to download.

I just downloaded a zip file of all my pics on Photobucket and will upload to Imgur this weekend after I delete the ones I don't want anymore.

Shame that all the past postings will have broken links instead of pictures.

We'll just have to start building new memories (I can't believe I just said that).

You want to see idiots run a company? Run a free service, lose money, then do a surprise money jack. Because you're good people, everybody will understand. Lose shirt. Hilarity ensues.

I don't know why, but my images posted on 3rd party sites are still visable, but I get the demand for payment when I go to the Photobucket site. I was able to get to my library and just downloaded the library to my thumbdrive.

I'll leave the library alone on PB as long as the pics show up on 3rd party sites...if they disappear, I'll shut down my PB account.

So I get the email that my photos are ready for download, click the link, and get "This download is no longer available".

F'rs.
