    You have to install the extension in the Chrome browser to see it, you will be able to see everyone's Photobucket photo's again, if they haven't deleted their accounts or removed their pictures.

    The link I posted is to the extension. just click on "Added to Chrome" and it will be installed on your Chrome browser Then clear your browser cache and you'll be able to view Photobucket pictures again, at least until Photobucket figures a way to stop it.

    This only works with the Chrome browser, if you use a different browser, you're out of luck.

    It only works with Chrome, it won't work with any other browser.

    But with this Chrome extension, you can now view other peoples "how to" posts in which they have Photobucket pictures.

    All those pictures are not lost.

    No it won't work. The mobile version of Chrome doesn't run extensions.

    Quick update - I've been working on the new site platform. It appears there is an add-on I can get that will fix this specific issue. I looked into it for the current platform it's all custom code.

    I realize not a great update (i.e. no fix across the entire site today), but I do think it will be fixed in the near future. That said, once the new platform is up and running, if you want to see it in advance and test it out let me know.
