    Hi,
    Am new to this. Lot's of images on various threads are blurred out with a Photobucket logo on them. I tried to search the forums to resolve this but maybe I wasn't searching right.
    Could I please know how can those blurred out images be viewed, please?
    Thanks,
    EsK

    Yeah, Photobucket was popular until they started doing that.

    No one at this site can help you with that. Ask Photobucket.

    Some photo hosting sites don't allow off-site linking. PB is obviously one! Better bet is to use the free photo hosting here at Rail Images! It's in the black bar above.

    I know very little about this, but two years ago Photobucket decided that charging money for its services was a good idea and they reached for the stars when they set their rates. As such, many users simply walked away and what you see are their abandoned images purposely blurred and watermarked by Photobucket.

    Oh, ok. Got it. So there's now there's no way to see those images, right?

    Thanks

    I just signed up for the free account at PB, and it seems to be working just fine now.

    You mean to say that if I sign up for a free account at PB I will be able to view the images put up by other TrainBooard members over time that appear blurred out for me as of now?

    I suspect you'll still not be able to see them, but I'm not 100% sure. The person that posted the PB images must have an open PB account.
