Ive had my Photobucket account for years and years. for the past 2 months I have exceeded my limit within a week of it resetting each month.

I can only put this down to someone using one of my images and is leeching it on a high traffic site.

Any way to find out what image is effected? - Photobucket only want me to upgrade my account.

I think it is going to be tricky as you are not hosting them yourself and PB are a stingy not telling you as they will be able to find out.

Depending on how many pictures you have, you could search for the picture names to see if you can find the picture from its metadata... If loads, probably not worth it.

Otherwise might be a case of removing ones you don't use any more and process of trial and elimination with the remaining to see.

Not sure how else you could do it.

Does it give you hit rate statistics on pictures?

Why not view the account status and set albums to private in turn to see which one causes the bandwidth used to shoot up.
