Pretty exciting news for people who use chrome for the internet page viewing and use the forum a fair bit, there is a fix for photobucket's ridiculous ransom demands!!!

Really simple and free aswell, here is a step by step guide on the fix....

This fix will need to be done on every pc to view the pictures, and i need to see if it works on phones etc, but will update that as and when.

1. Open up your browser, untill now you will of been met with the 'go to photbucket to upgrade' thumbnail instead of pictures, with the browser open, click on the three dots in the top right of the window

2. next scroll down to 'more tools', then 'extensions'

3. the next window that appears, click 'get more extensions'

4. Next, a new window will open up which is the chrome web store, search the word 'photobucket' , the top result will be the 'photobucket hot link fix

5. Restart your browser, and job done!

It's not a 'fix fix', but its a good start and only takes seconds to apply this change and my pictures are back!

I have looked into it and this fix cannot be applied to chrome on a phone yet unfortunatly, but possibly in the future rumour has it
