Something to do with Photobucket changing their format.  If you have old pictures with them in your previously free account, they won't show anymore until you pay a fee.

That's how I understand it, anyhow...anybody else?

Yes, Photobucket is holding about 500 of my pictures for ransom right now.
I can not down load a picture from my album to this site unless I pay them $400.00.
I'm not sure if that is a one time payment or a yearly charge but, I'M NOT GOING TO PAY IT.
An ounce of responsablity is worth 10 pounds of state and fedral laws.
