Imgur is a stripped down online photo hosting and sharing service that lets you upload and share images with a minimal effort. There are many image hosting services nowadays, however Imgur has two features that set it apart.
First, its very simple, has no annoying ads and prominently shows a direct link to the image file, rather than the page that displays the image. Secondly, it provides a short link for the image address, which makes it more convenient for sharing (ex:http://imgur.com/2YRGQ). No registration required.
It includes a simple editor that allows to resize and crop the image. File upload size limit is 2 MB. After you upload the image, you will get the usual code for embedding and the direct link address.
The service is free and if you donate some money, your file size limit will be lifted to 3 Mb.
