This is the only answer for Photobucket's ongoing shenanigans. The folks that run it are idiots. I had a multitude of problems with them for years before they pulled the last pay stunt. They just do things without thinking and then try to recover from them over the following year. How about those pop-ups. They are always coding to get around the pop-up blockers. The latest revised plans are still outrageous IMO.
If you leave your photos there they can use them to advertise, etc.. I did a mass download of everything to my phone (maybe 1500 pictures and videos) about a month ago backed them up to my home storage system, and than deleted the Photobucket account. It will disappear in 48 hours. Who knows if they archive it somewhere but no one can get to those photos any longer.
I switched to Imgur.com but only the image sharing side. They are much faster and simpler for now. Photobucket was good 7-8 years ago but they trashed it up. There are many free image hosting sites.
