But...

This is all temporary. New price structure to be annonced. Implication is we still gotta pay to post photos on 3d party websites. Their statement:
Welcome to the New Photobucket!

Photobucket has new management, and we are liberating your images!

As of today, your hosted images are live.
Photobucket has a new management team that wants to do the right thing. We are committed to earning back your trust and offering comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options for our customers. We’ve taken your feedback and made some changes to our pricing model that allows us to offer competitively priced plans that fit the needs of all of our customers. For a limited time, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs. In an effort to improve our customers’ experience, we’ve also moved away from an advertising-based model and have eliminated a portion of ads from the site. Photobucket pioneered the image sharing and hosting market 15 years ago, and our new management team is committed to returning Photobucket to the premier imaging service people had come to know and trust. There are more positive changes on the way, but for now we are excited to share this new compelling subscription option, as a testament to our dedication to you, our valued customers.


Here it is: Gotta have a paid plan to post on 3d party sites:
Photobucket Subscription Pricing & Info

When you sign up for a Photobucket account, you are prompted to select a plan.

Our Beginner plan is our free plan and includes:
  • 2 GB of storage space (Approximately 400 photos).
If you need more storage or access to 3rd Party Image Hosting, you'll want to upgrade your account to one of our paid subscriptions plans. With a paid Photobucket plan, you receive all the benefits of the Beginner plan, plus many more! Please visit the following link to upgrade: Choose Your Plan

Pricing

The cost of a paid account varies depending on your needs. Please note, yearly subscriptions are billed annually.

Beginner +
  • You may choose to pay either monthly at $2.49/month or yearly for $26.99/year (equivalent to $2.25/month).

When you upgrade your plan, you gain the following benefits:
  • 3rd Party Image Hosting: Link the photos you have uploaded to Photobucket to your forums, blogs or other websites for viewing.
  • No Advertisements: Enjoy an ad free Photobucket experience as long as you are logged into your Plus account.
  • Premium Support: You have direct access to our tech support team. [email protected]
*Ad Free Browsing: When you're logged into your Photobucket Plus account, you won't see any ads on Photobucket pages (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts).

Mega.nz is free and gives you 50gb storage. Plus it's totally encrypted.
