 Photo bucket has blurred out many of the pics on long time threads. Some will never be resurrected, as some members are no longer with us. My favorite thread of all time has basically been destroyed by photo bucket....very sad.

 Pictures tell a thousand words, especially when dealing with antique reels and teardown tutorials. I clicked on "Penn senators from the beginning" and was very sad to see pics from Ray Hodges are blurred. He posted pics of many rare reels from his collection. I've used his pics for reference many times, but those days are gone. I really miss Ray, and now photobucket is erasing his legacy, along with many others who have so generously added their wisdom to this forum. I've never used photo bucket, and never will. RIP Ray Hodges

As Gobi King advised us earlier, use Mozilla Firefox as your browser and install the Photobucket fix, and the photos will become unblurred.

I was having the same problem with blurred pics this morning but got it resolved.

Bob, is that a Mac you're using? If so, you have to get all add-ons only from the Apple store, otherwise, problems.

Dom, same goes for you. If it's not in the Apple store, then it's not available for Safari.

Yes it is recent, I remember the opening photos of Superhook's "Penns as you find them" being sharp for on my screen.  Thanks for the Apple Store tip.  I could see the sense of photo storage sites when we had the smaller hard drives, but now the drives are huge, so why bother?

Regardless of what's on your hard drive, you have to get the photo hosted somewhere on the internet for it to be available for others to see.  It can be a photo-sharing site like Photobucket, the AT Gallery, your own web site, etc.  But, even if you put your stuff on a photo-sharing site, you should still keep a copy on your personal hard drive so the pictures are not lost should one or the other of them go poof.
