I haven't paid them and all my photos are watermarked.

Can you show us what that looks like?

Sure, here's an example:

Thanks, but I'm sorry to tell you that's apparently their old, civilized watermark.  It may soon get worse.  They're now saying that anyone who exceeds 20 (or maybe it's 25, I've seen both) meg per month will have their photos blurred and watermarked (see example  partway down the page here).

Big problem as I see it is that if you post your photos on a website that's open to the public (such as this one), you really have no control over how many people are gonna look at your pictures, or how many times each.  It could go along at, say, 10 meg / month for a while, but then all of a sudden jump to 100 meg one month, and they'd blur your pictures.  I wonder what they'd do if usage fell back down to 10 meg the next month?  (Somehow, I'm not optimistic.)

I wonder if I should leave up the one I posted and see what happens to it over time, lol.  I don't use Photobucket anymore since the debacle 2 years ago, and I never will again.

Please do -- in the interest of science!

For the record, what I'm seeing there now is a somewhat hazy (but not blurred) photo of trees in autumn and a road.  When I look at it on the forum page, there's a small (but tasteful!) watermark covering maybe 5 or 10 percent of the photo.  When I go to your Photobucket page, there's no watermark.

I think the haze is the photo itself.  It was a drizzly day plus I took that picture on an old flip-phone camera in 2009, so there's pixelation too.

That's kinda what I thought, so Photobucket hasn't messed with it (so far) other than the small watermark.  Nice picture, by the way.  I can see why you took it.
