TinyPic.com Shutting Down Soon (September 16)

Post by proYorp » Wed Sep 11, 2019 7:16

According to the tinypic website:
TinyPic is shutting down
Due to an inability to support a high-quality free digital service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site revenues, TinyPic will be permanently shutting down on September 16, 2019. Because we want to give you as much notice and information as possible during our transition, please carefully review the following information.

What Should You Do Now?
If you have a TinyPic user account, login and download all of the images you wish to preserve. Sorry, bulk download is not an option on TinyPic so you will need to download each image separately.

IMPORTANT DATES:
August 20, 2019 - no new images may be uploaded on TinyPic.

September 9, 2019 - hosted images will no longer be viewable on 3rd party websites. Because we are an anonymous hosting site and therefore cannot provide notice by e-mail to our users, we have opted to replace all hosted images with a temporary message directing them to this notice.

September 16, 2019 - last day for TinyPic account holders to access their accounts and download their images.
To reiterate:
As of September 9th all images hosted on TinyPic are no longer viewable on any third party website.
September 16 will be the last day for TinyPic account holders to access their accounts and download their images.


Noticed an oddly high number of broken image links here suddenly (such as Gridlock's user icon and Keening_Product's signature), apparently this is why. In case anyone has anything of potential value saved to a TinyPic account please look into this.
Dang there's gonna be a lot of dead images here now....

Also something seems to be up with Photobucket as well, a lot of pictures hosted there seem to have gotten suddenly blurred out (such as Levellass' avatar). Not sure what's causing that though.
