Pricing is not bad. Not identical to my Fototime account, but similar. Will subscribing restore your old photo's, I don't know, you should ask.
I don't have enough photo's linked on Photobucket to bother subscribing. If I had a bunch, I might consider...but the real problem would be one of trust. Will Photobucket suck us all back in and then try to gouge us again?
I agree with Douglas and use both sites. After all is said and done, competition creates excellence. The 'original' does feel more at home.
It seems that the old Greybeard did more for Sponsor search ability?
