Profile picture and photobucket problems
« on: June 11, 2017, 03:46:21 pm »
Hi all

Had a photobucket for a while and not had many issues posting pictures on other forums in the past.
I can't seem to be able to use one of my pictures for my profile though, I've tried the direct link and the img links but non of them will work. I either get a photo not found where the picture should be or nothing at all. I read on an older thread that there was an upload avatar button somewhere on the profile page but I can't see it. Has it been removed?

Cheers                               Tom and Rose

It's still there for me..

If you go into your profile and then choose the Forum Profile option.. you can personalise your picture and upload a new one etc.

It's photobucket. They've changed their t&c's about sharing photos. Apparently you now need to pay a high subscription to continue. They can swivel as far as I'm concerned.

Imgur should suit.

 Give it a try if you`re bothered about it. It`s where my current avatar is stored.

Photofukit tried to do the same to me but they did give me the chance to retrieve my stuff before it was effectively trashed. Ta and thank you very much Photobucket.

They seem to have had a rethink. Now works again.

It's bizarre, gone again despite working for a bit.

They're teasing you to show what you're missing by being too tight to spend the $399.

If you use Google Chrome, a fix has been released as a go around. Seems to work as well!!



As we know photobucket has gone down the charging route and some great photos from the forum have all but gone. Use these instructions below and trust me it works. I can see all the photobucket photos on here again. Its from Google and is free.

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the top right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.
