Uh...I don't think so.

I'm deleting my account.

Read the fine print, people.

I had just opened mine...any alternatives?

However I understand the principle but I don't think someone from photobucket is ever going to check if the newt pictures I uploaded there are posted somewhere else.

I posted this before I really checked into it. The thing is, most sites have some sort of clause that allows your photographs to be used by others, unless you include a copyright notice on them.

I haven't tried Flickr, but I hear they have similar policies regarding what they consider to be "yours" or "theirs."

I think my best bet is probably to rent some space on a friend's webspace to host pictures on, or just to keep them in my personal accounts online.

In my case, it's not a huge deal - most of the pictures I had on there were just of my newts and my dogs and my house (been redecorating)...but I did remove my nature photography so that I can put copyright notices on them; and removed some personal photos that I had on there (I was attacked a few weeks ago, and had pictures of bruises and footprints on my back and stuff like that).

But I know a lot of people here are really into photography, and would be very upset to find thier stuff used without thier permission.

It just...feels weird to think that a place you trusted to be private isn't.

I've used Flickr forever. Its a lot more user-friendly and if you want to show other people your albums it looks a lot nicer than photobucket or picturetrail.

I romoved all my photos because they are all my personal stuff, but people can just take the copyright stuff off, what would you suggest using cause i am total bombed.

Yeah, I realized that, too. Now I only use photobucket for stuff that's not my own photography (to host icons and avatars for other sites and stuff).

It helps that caudata.org allows you to upload pictures from your hard drive directly, instead of forcing you to link to them online - I really like that feature! :D

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!
