Default Photobucket’s experiment with being a $399.99 premium service is over...

https://www.bizjournals.com/denver/....-millions.html

"Photobucket’s experiment with being a $399.99 premium service is over, and so to is the tenure of the CEO who led it. The Denver-based photo storing service on Thursday revealed it has slashed its prices and restored millions of photos around the internet hoping to mollify millions of customers it angered last year.

“It’s the first step of many to restore the trust of customers,” said Ted Leonard, Photobucket’s new CEO.

He became CFO at the 15-year-old company in October, after it surprised users worldwide by starting to charge $399.99 for hosting a large number of photos and being able to post them on third-party blogs, ecommerce sites and elsewhere."


Apparently in an effort to resurrect itself.. Or still find itself in business at all.

Now the new prices start at:
  • $1.99 per month for 10 gigabytes of images stored
  • $3.99 monthly for 20 gigabytes
  • $8.99 for two terabytes of storage.

All the plans enable third-party hosting for a $2.49 monthly add-on price.
