imgur — easy, no registration photo hosting.

Imgur_logo.svgimgur does one thing — photo hosting. But, it does it very well. You simply upload your photo and use it on your web page.

Imgur seems almost too good to be true. It allows you to upload your image, without registration, which the site says will never be deleted.

Imgur accepts JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, PDF files, which should include any type of graphic you’ve created. Any files, besides JPG, will be converted to PNG, which should not be a problem since PNG files are standard for web browsers. Nicely, Imgur also accepts XCF files which are native to the open-source GIMP photo editing program. I’m not aware of any other hosting service that allows this.

Bottom line: a very easy way to post a photo with no registration.
