Hi All,

A brilliant little work-around provided from Jesse over on advrider.com; there is a browser fix for photobuckets annoying policy that means you have to pay money to them to show your hosted photos on forums. This fix is for the viewers of the images, it does not fix the original postings. It's very cool and works a treat :D

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-fixer/ogipgokcopooepeipngiikdkpmcpkaon

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-fixer/

From Jesse's own words:

"I wrote a Google Chrome browser extension that, once installed, will make all broken Photobucket images on any webpage visible again. To install it, if you're using Google Chrome, just go to this link, click Add to Chrome, and you're good to go! From then on, any page you visit with broken Photobucket images will show up as they did before Photobucket nuked them. You don't click on anything, or do anything else, to get the pictures to be fixed. It happens automatically. They will not be fixed for anyone else -- they will just show up as fixed for people using the browser extension.

In case anyone wants to look at the code behind the extension, you can look at it here: https://github.com/TheAtomicGoose/pbfix

Thanks for reading, and I hope this helps!
