I've noticed that too and it keeps prompting to pay for more space but as I'm only using 5% of my allowance, it doesn't seem worth it. I suspect it's deliberately slow to encourage people to pay for it, more likely it will cause people to stop using it.

I've noticed the same and had the same thoughts the last few times I've used Photobucket. Unless it's slow deliberately, seems they should be the ones paying more for better server facilities! I expect it is deliberate, because photos don't take any time to load at all if clicked from an external link. I'll put up with the slow admin speed because I have all my work photos on there and wouldn't want to swap to another site even if there is one.

It actually slows my computer down just being on the site and will sometimes even lock it up

Its the end of photobucket.

You now have to pay to use the service

Too right, Dai.

I just read this page https://www.ghacks.net/2017/06/30/photobucket-now-charges-399-for-third-party-hosted-images/, have set up an account on http://www.postimage.org and will attempt to download all my stuff from Photobucket later when the kids have stopped streaming videos and playing games online... May be a while before I get chance to upload to postimage,org.
