    Thwart Photobucket.

    If it does as said, it will enable viewing of all the blocked photos that were hosted by Photobucket.

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...giikdkpmcpkaon

    If anyone wants to try a before and after test, I'm keen to hear the result (too late for me, I've already installed it).

    I am running XP which is no longer supported by Chrome. Tried the firoxfox fix but no success. Then tried below fix for Opera and found it works.

    The fix has worked for you if you can view my snow photos:

    Smart meets Unimog the Snow Monster

    A wee bit of snow has fallen and Smart is out checking the grip.


    Smart has seen more snow than this before so on we go.


    Then around a bend and accross a bridge a giant snow monster appears.


    The monster is getting nearer,


    nearer,


    and nearer.


    His jaws will make me into mince meat so quickly we retreat.


    It turned out it was only Unimog, my great uncle, out clearing the road so unscathed and happy for home we head.


    Above photos were taken in Glen Gairn near Ballater, Aberdeenshire, Scotland on 26 February 2010.

    No photos to be seen, only the dreaded Photobucket "unlock your account" image! Think they have stoppered the workaround!

    Cheers TK. A bit slow to load (and first link brings up photos that aren't in the subsequent links) and to start with the PB blocked image appears briefly, but beyond that the photos show.
    Timely (I found it on another forum today) as I was getting hosed off last week researching a project and the images I wanted were PB blocked. No more!

    Got a work around for iPhone. Using Opera browser, turn on turbo mode and images appear.

    I'm using Chrome and can see the pics you posted (links to) in post#3. It shows 'blocked' initially, then the image appears. Haven't since adding the extension come across any blocked PB images but been trawling through textual documents lately which don't have photographs. So far so good.

    I’m all for thwarting , but by talking about it on ‘the internet’ and posting the ideas and fixes you’re just letting them know the holes they need to plug ......
    You're so money supermarket and you don't even know it!
