WHO IS Photobucket?

Photobucket is an American image and video hosting platform.


Photobucket hosts photos and videos for its customers. The users can then link to the content on different sites or blogs.


Photobucket has a free plan, which offers storage of up to 250 images. However, the site has paid options with better offers, such as $5.99 a month for 2,500 images (25GB) and $12.99 a month for unlimited Image Hosting. Once you have an account, you can upload and display your photos on other Web sites by including a direct link. The site has photo and video album options.
