I'm not going to bother. I hosted all of the photos from my trip reports to Vegas, Shelby American Collection, all the car shows, etc. on Photobucket. There are simply WAY WAY too many to try to spend the time to find another host (note 1), move the pictures in an orderly manner, and go back and fix all the links. I also won't pay $400/year for the privilege. In fact, given that Photobucket now claims rights to the photos if the account is abandoned (it used to be they never had any rights) then I'm almost inclined to delete them anyway.
At this time none of my images appear to be blocked. A couple of years ago I had posted a trip report to multiple sites and I got hit by their bandwidth police, so I signed up for a paid account. That tier seems to no longer be available but I'm probably grandfathered. I can't find the Ts&Cs but it may include posting. In any case I have a second unpaid account (from when their limit was something like 500MB instead of the now 2GB) and about 1/2 of the posts are from that account, so I don't know what triggers the cutoff.
Note 1: Beware of flocking to other free sites. They will ultimately charge too. Case in point: Parking at the Vegas strip hotels was always free. Then a starting about a year ago, the MGM Grand said they would start charging, then they expanded to all the MGM properties, then the others on the strip started charging too (because their lots filled up from people that wouldn't pay at MGM), and one of the last strongholds caved this week. I predict that within a year the larger of the now-free sites will also start charging.
