Quick Image Hosting at ImageShack

Quick Image Hosting at ImageShack featuredImageShack is an easy-to-use free media hosting service, launched in 2003. It can be used to upload images, flash files, and movies, and share them with friends using any imaginable means.

ImageShack allows direct linking to your images and there is no limit in the number of images you can upload (Each image you upload must be less than 5 megabytes in size, 10 megabytes for premium users. Video files must be less than 15 minutes or they will be trimmed after uploading).

There is also a free registration service that gives the user the ability to see and delete their previously uploaded images.

ImageShack does not alter the size of your uploaded image (unless you resized it yourself), it simply generated a clickable thumbnail.

Your files are private until you start sharing your file locations with other people. Images are stored on ImageShack indefinitely unless the image or the user who uploaded it abuses the Terms of Service. The image will be rendered inaccessible if the image uses over 300 megabytes of bandwidth in a one-hour period. If the image in question is not accessed a single time in one year, they will remove it.

You can use the following tools:

  • ImageShack Toolbar
  • Imageshack Uploader
  • ImageShack’s iPhone application
  • yfrog for Blackberry
  • yfrog for Android
  • ImageShack iPhoto Plugin
  • Imageshack Picasa Plugin
  • ImageShack QuickSend
  • ImageShack Syndicate
  • ImageShack Sidebar

ImageShack Uploader 2.2 for iPhone
The new version of ImageShack’s media upload tool not only makes it easy to take and upload photos to Twitter, but also allows the user to record and upload video clips directly to the social network service via yfrog. Or if Twitter isn’t your style, you can upload your pics to ImageShack, videos to YouTube, or share any media via email.
