Got this from Photobucket. I don't know if or how it may effect all the previous links/photos.
"Starting October 10th, you will see a discrete “Proudly hosted on Photobucket” watermark on any images you display on sites other than Photobucket.
This change will allow us to continue offering our image hosting service to you as a free user. If you don’t mind the watermark and wish to continue as a free user, you won’t need to do anything. If you prefer no watermarking, simply upgrade to one of our affordable premium plans starting at $4.03 per month and enjoy all of the benefits of membership. "
