I'm mot sure I understand. Are they saying anything created with PS isn't allowed or what?

I'll be searching around for that email later to see what I can find out

Aha .. See, you said Photoshop in your 1st post, so that kind of threw me a little .. lol ..

As for photobucket ... I stopped using them a long time ago, when they tried to charge me for viewing my own pics ..  :face-slap:

I've steered away from photobucket / imageshack and the like as they all wanted to start charging in some fashion and have just been using facebook/youtube since then ..

In essence they are holding you hostage. They've made the service nearly impossible to use by bombarding you with ads and then want to charge you to make them go away.

I can still see my images, but I am not sure how long that will last. I tried to get in to just look through my images to see what I will lose when I delete my account, but there is so much garbage being thrown at my screen it jambs my laptop. Most of the images I have up loaded to their site I still have in my own library so I won't lose anything.

I don't mind that they want to charge for the service, but I do not like the way they have gone about it.

Soon as my images disappear, I will delete my account.

I quit with Photobucket a while back, too.  So how do we now upload pics to our forum?
