So I'm glad you brought this up as I cannot explain how much I despise Photobucket...years and years of uploading my photos and then they decide to screw us over by disabling 3rd party image hosting...unless you pay those greedy corporate bastards...and whats even worse is their website does not even work properly...its super buggy...laggy and just horrible aggressive pop-up ad's all over the place...just a complete shithole

So how do I download 3000 images from their site back onto my hardrive? nooo fu*king way...unless you do the Android app album download. Can you believe that they wont even let you download your own images from the website!!!

So here is a simple fix I found online using Google Chrome..."for non Android users"...BTW this is copy and paste...this is not my info

Those who do not have an Android or want to do it on your PC can,
1, Get the "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" Chrome extension,
2, Export all your picture HTML links and save it to a text file.... photos.htm
3, Open the file in Chrome and press CTRL+S (or Save page) ...
4, select the option Webpage COMPLETE
Hope it helps others trying to download their memories from these greedy website owners

So for step 2 > select an album and then select an image in that album...once you do this you will see a button "Select all"...click it and wait for that shitty website to select all the album images...once all the images have been selected you can select the HTML links and complete step 2 from above.

Now I switched to https://imgbb.com/ works great, much faster than photobucket and simpler to use...and free

You could do that at the start. I downloaded all my images and rehosted them on my own server. And it cost me next to nothing to have my own domain and webhotel for this, and also 100% control of the images.

How did you download them? I had no option on the website to download my images...and I don't have an Android phone to do it the other way...

They had a "download album" option before. I guess they removed it when they saw that 10000s of people grabbed their stuff and left the site after their price model changed.

yep I remember that option as well...but they no longer have it. Exactly as you said...they realized the ship is sinking and then made it harder on their users to download their photos...
