    They are asking for $400US, its a LOT cheaper to pay for hosting and link pictures from there .... So all they are banking on is people having too much invested time wise paying the fee, this isnt the best model IMO..

    Dont worry mate, it'll be sooner than you think ... Huge backlash already. Even before all this the site was slowing up and pop-up ads constant so you knew they were trying make more money, its a last ditch cash grab before they go bye bye..

    imgur, flickr are the main big ones but some of them will say no hotlinking even though it works ... You can try some of the smaller ones that dont have accounts and you just post pictures up, VGY is one.. Also there is github, strictly not a picture uppload site its a repository for a lot of things mostly used by geeks, but they will throttle you if your bandwidth usage isnt in line with the rest of the community.

    They are getting hammered on their FB page and have not responded yet. I wouldn't mind betting they will come back with a greatly reduced price. If it was reasonable I would pay it just for the convenience.

    if it was reasonable. I was asked to pay USD$49.99 PER MONTH in the 1st email to me
    (even though i was only using 12% of the original FREE allowance of 10Gb)
    then
    after no response from me, it came down to USD$39.99 per month (USD$480 a year or Approx AUD$640!)
    the latest offer is USD$9.99 per month or $120per year (= AUD$160)


    still $160 too dear



    oh... and I have worked out how the Captcha thingy works and have downloaded about 1/2 the albums I have on PB
    once all downloaded, the account gets deleted and I go to one of the other free sites (which I am evaluating at 'mo)

    Gotta watch some of the other ones too like imgur, their policy also frowns on hotlinking and freezing accounts is in their terms of use as well ...

    You liked that one didnt you .... You can get yourself a domain name for $10 and cheap hosting for about $20-30 ... I thought of a really good one I was going to register www.holdensexual.com its still available..
