    I picked this up from AK. It seems to work well, and is a very quick way to correct the Photobucket spam that took over the hosted images.

    If you find images that have been kidnapped, go into an EDIT task. In edit, click on the Photobucket highjacked image, and you'll get a pop-up window with the image URL address.
    If you add this extension to the absolute end of that URL add'y codec line, ~original , and then click the "Insert" button, you'll get that image restored.

    click insert

    Restored,.... for how long?
    This is a quick and easy fix. I find it worth the time spent.

    It seems weird to me that this would work, but I've tested and confirmed...

    How long, indeed? We shall see.


    Oh yes... Also, Photobucket can die a horrible internet death. The bastids.

    Lowered slowly, feet first, into the human garbage disposer.

    WOW Thanks!!!
    This will make it a lot easier to fix threads and post.

    Just fixed a thread that I did long ago when I used photobucket

    AKers should and members on this site should learn drag and drop from your own files to the site comment box your posting in.
    Like this, I'll never use a host again.

    I agree, and strange Photobucket didn't tell us this easy fix:lol:

    I can even see mods and admin, fixing post here and there as they come apon them it's so easy and will keep the site looking good.

    I just checked if I had any old PB posted photos here to clean up, I'm all good anyway.
