    So I should be ok putting photos on Etsy from Imgur?

    Sarahlabyrinth, you'll be fine. From the etsy listings I've looked at, they take any picture you upload and host it themselves. If you right-click on a picture from a listing and "view image", it'll have something similar to img1.etsystatic.com on it. So you wouldn't actually be using imgur as a host for commercial purposes.

    There is no way I will replace all the photos I've posted on this forum or elsewhere, though, so I don't take too much stress about it. It's internet after all, hosting sites come and go. But I truly don't like the way they did this, without a fair warning in advance - without ANY communication to me. They just did it.
    All of this. ^^^
    I am STUNNED. I have only ever used photobucket and only because of this forum. I hardly have any pics there but they are all linked to this site from my 8+ years membership here.

    That said, I have always hated photobucket. A couple years ago something changed that made everything harder. I was going to switch hosting sites then but there was a reason I didn't...I cannot remember what it was. Hmm.

    I have all my photos from PB on CD somewhere. sigh. It seems I can still access them so I will do like others and delete them all and my account. Whatever. I hope they die a painful death.

    Actually, I wish forums didn't need hosting sites and you could just upload like you do your sig pic, etc. But I get why. Posting pics is so tedious. After the big shutdown/update a few years back (when WAS that?) I have never redone my album. When I tried I only got error after error about the size or pixels or shape or something of what I was trying to upload so I gave up. It must not be any better, I notice few people seem to take the time for albums now. Well I was just going to post my mid-year and classic pics. UGH.

    That comment is less than two weeks old. So I'm pretty positive that using their albums to post here or on other forums is just fine. They're mostly concerned with people using imgur to host porn or to avoid paying for hosting services for your own website, I think.
    Thanks to both of you for the insight and clarification. That is a good idea to look around on their forum! I didn't think of that.

    What a lot of the folks around here are switching to (and what I would recommend off-handedly) is Imgur.

    Yep I already made the switch. I already like it a thousand times more than PB. I hope they will allow the photo usage (as discussed above) the way we use it.

    Is there a way to somehow host your own photos? (not use a third party host)

    I ran into this yesterday- I promptly asked for recommendations than joined Imgur. I already find it a lot more user friendly.

    I wondered if they were hacked too. I also thought that it's entirely probable that their bottom line just got too high. It's fair to charge for the service but they chose the WORST POSSIBLE WAY to go about doing this.

    It occurred to me that they may be counting on people who use their blogs etc as a source of income to rush to pony up the ransom in order to avoid crashing their business. Which makes it one heck of a long con.

    Either way, I am sure they'll be out of business in short order and there will probably be a class action lawsuit as well. When you Google "photobucket" one of the first things that comes up is a news article in PC mag about how they broke half the internet. That's REALLY not good press.

    My images from PB are still up. Maybe if you haven't tried to link anything after the change you skate under the radar. Got to admit imgur is tons better as far as I can tell

    To be fair, if people get money from their blog or own a business I think using a free photo hosting is not according to rules of most hosting sites. The free services are usually not meant for businesses.

    Always behave like a duck -
    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.
