TinyPic Images Unavailable, Broken Links, Bought out by PhotoBucket

UPDATE: Old images uploaded on TinyPic are now back up live! Thanks TinyPic!

If you are shocked that all your images uploaded on TinyPic have suddenly disappeared, then the reason is because TinyPic has seemingly been bought out by PhotoBucket. Unfortunately, they did not have the courtesy to at least prevent the broken links, as several blogs on the internet are highly dependent on such pictures uploaded on their servers. As stated on the TinyPic site:

Tinypic is no longer accepting uploads from international locations, and links are turned off. If you have content on Tinypic, you can still view the URLs and the content, but only on Tinypic. To upload, share, or link content, please go to Photobucket.com to register an account. You will need to upload your content again to your Photobucket account, but you will be able to share and link your images and videos. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you enjoy Photobucket, our premier image and video site. Click here for more details.
