One thing you have to remember is....the FREE PB, is good to excellant, ONLY if you keep the amount of pix/info, down to their space allotment, to be FREE!!!
Your prob. over your FREE limit, or close to it.....so NOW they want you to pay for MORE space in your album!!!
I've used PB, for yrs., and found that they are one of the best album savers around.....and so long as you don't go over your limit of space for FREE, they don't hassle ya for the money.
Try going through your album/albums, and clear out all of the pix you don't use/need, to save, and you should be OK!!! Save the pix you want to keep, to your computer files!! You can always re-upload one or more, to PB if you want,at a later time.
Keep yer albums below the space alloted for FREE, then you will not be ask for any $$$'s for expantion space!!!
That's the way I do it, about every 4-6 mos., and they have NEVER ask me to up-grade and pay!!!
Their policy changed recently. Photobucket still has FREE accounts, they no longer have any STORAGE LIMITS for image files, and you are allowed a maximum of 500 video files. Free accounts still have a BANDWIDTH LIMIT - a maximum of 10GB of data downloads
allowed per month. No monthly limit on how much you can upload to the site. So if you are getting a lot of views (downloads) or have a lot of video files you will need a Plus or Pro account to a get larger limits to suit your usage.
