Anyone using Photobucket should read their terms of service carefully. When you upload a photo to Photobucket

1. you are giving it to them to use as they wish.
2. they can modify your photo with logos, ads, whatever

and Photobucket recognizes (and defends) the right of the public to take and use your photos for anything they want as well, except for commercial distribution. So if they want it for their non-commercial website, so be it.

A person who was running a website selling snakes stole a bunch of photos from off of photobucket to use to represent "his animals". When some of the photographers approached him about using their photos without permission, he was "less than polite" in response and told them (including me) that he could use the photo for whatever he wanted because it was on photobucket. And you know what? He was right.

I had another photo from photobucket appear in a publication with my copyright cut off and no credit given. I had no right to complain under the photobucket TOS.

Not an issue for some people, I know, but it is worth looking at carefully. Other photo hosting sites are better about protecting the rights of the photographer.
