Photobucket is Not Allowing Nudity

JUNE 5, 2006:


This has been posing a problem for many of our members. Please report and link here posts containing missing / broken links due to Photobucket's No Nudity rule.

I am currently looking into other image hosting options. Please stay tuned. I would advise people not to contact Photobucket, as this will only draw attention to your account.

Hi there, mainly I am concerned that imageshack has more or less the same policy:

Quote: The following types of files may not be uploaded under any circumstances
  • Files that are [sic] pornographic. This includes, but is not limited to, files depicting...nudity...
Of course, nothing that we do here could be considered pornographic, but I don't think they're discriminating between types of nudity.

Yeah, the problem is I don't know how much the rule is enforced. In Photobucket's case, I think the no nudity rule is new. I've had work hosted with them for a year without any problems, then I think they changed their rules, and are now enforcing it (though sporadically). Like I say, I'm trying to find another solution. In the meantime, I would just continue to host with whomever you typically do, and hope for the best until I can find a host that will accept nude, non~pornographic images.

~what happened to free speech?~

I've been uploading to imageshack since Nov 2005 and they've never reinforced this rule on me (knowing Murphey you should take that with some salt). Think imageshack could serve as a temporary solution until Rebecca finds a new possibilty.

So much for free speech though.

hope this helps,

I just uploaded 7 or 8 pics this morning that are anatomy/croque class nudes ... I've had several digital nudes or semi nude images at photobucket and nothing has become of them. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I was just happy that there are places you can put your photo's up on now as there was a long time everyone denied direct linking to images.


I just went over to FreeImageHosting and asked directly about artistic and art anatomy nudes. Hopefully we will have an answer soon on that site.

Feel free to use the image hosting I set up earlier this year just for CGTalkers. Please use it only for hosting your images for CGTalk as that's all it's designed for.

Picassa Web albums?

You can set albums to "private" where they're only viewable via a direct URL.
