I have a friend who made a picture for a mod I am working on and he put it on Photobucket. I can't download it. I tried right clicking and saving and I get a generic pic as the thumbnail and I get this error.

Has Photobucket changed their security settings to prevent people other then account holders from DLing photos or its it my software? I am running Windows 7 and this is just frustrating.

I'm not sure if this is the answer, but I know that Photobucket have become a trifle fed up, lately, with folks using their free service for what is sometimes called "third party hosting"

 

Many folks especially on forums all over the world have been using this facility, using a fair bit of server capacity at no cost to themselves.... I understand that they are now making a charge of around £399 ( GBP) per annum for folks who want to continue using their facilities. So it could be that your friend has been caught up in this and perhaps not paid the fee?

Hope this helps

Regards
