The 6 Best Free Image Hosts: HotLinking Allowed, No Bandwidth Limits

Gavin Phillips Updated 20-02-2020

Whether you’re looking for a way to keep your images online, need to send someone an awesome meme, or reduce your bandwidth overhead, free image hosting is super handy. There are loads of free image hosting sites out there.

Plus, modern free image hosting sites are different from the early options, offering slick, multiplatform services with numerous hosting options. And, with so many options, how do you choose a free image host?

Wonder no more: here are six of the best free image hosting sites.

1. Imgur

imgur free image host

Imgur is one of the world’s largest free image hosting sites. Originally designed to host images for Reddit, Imgur continues to grow and attract new users. You can put its growth down to a few important features.

First up, you don’t need an account to host images. You drop an image into Imgur (or browse to the file location), wait for the upload to complete, and then you can begin sharing the link. Next, it hosts your images at very high quality, for free. You can also host GIFs on Imgur, as well as create albums and add individual captions to images.

The maximum file size is 20MB for images and 200MB for GIFs. You can upload JPG, JPEG, PNG, APNG, TIF, GIF, Animated GIF TIFF, BMP, PDF, and XCF files to Imgur.

There is also an Imgur app for Android and iOS, which works the same as the desktop site (free uploads, no account requirement, etc.).

2. imgbox

imgbox free image hosting

imgbox is a very basic but handy free image hosting service. You can use it to host JPG and PNG images, plus it can also host GIFs up to 10MB in size. imgbox offers unlimited storage space, for an unlimited time.

The imgbox interface is very simple. You drag and drop your image or browse to the file location. Once your image finishes uploading, you can start sharing your link. You can hotlink imgbox files, too.

imgbox doesn’t have loads of flashy features. But it is a great free image host.

3. Google Photos

google photos free image hosting

Wait, Google Photos is a free image hosting platform?

Yes, it is—for photos and images you upload from your mobile or a point-and-shoot camera up to 16 megapixels. With that information, you can consider Google Photos one of the ultimate free image hosts for shots of stunning vistas, multicolor sunsets, and most importantly, cat selfies.

Google Photos is an in-depth platform, as you would expect from Google. It categorizes your photos automatically, allowing you to search your library using a wide range of terms. For instance, you could search for the location, or “girls,” or the date, or a feature, and so on.

Google Photos receives billions of new uploads every day, as Google is using the vast number of photos to assist with the development of artificial intelligence and other big data programs. Furthermore, allowing Google Photos to function as a free image host keeps users within the Google ecosystem, which is preferable.

4. Oshi

oshi free image hosting

Oshi is slightly different from the other options on this list of free image hosts. The usual focus is on preservation and longevity, keeping your images alive and online for as long as possible. Ochi does it differently, offering you control over your images and sharing anonymity.

You don’t have to create an account with Oshi. Furthermore, you can set the links to your image to self-destruct after 1-hour, 1-day, 3-days, 7-days, 30-days, and 90-days. But if you change your mind after setting a destruction time, you can always alter it after sending the link. To further boost your privacy, you can randomize file names to make sure that there is no link between the URLs you share.

Another feature that will appeal to privacy and security-focused individual is support for Tor. Each image you host on Oshi also receives a Tor download address.

5. ImageShack

imageshack free hosting images

ImageShack moved to a premium account-model a long while ago. However, you can still pick up a free ImageShack account. The free ImageShack account has a 10GB per month upload limit, but that’s still a decent amount of free image hosting, especially with a reliable and long-standing service.

When you activate your free ImageShack account, it begins a 30-day trial of the premium tier automatically. You won’t lose any photos at the end of the period, and it gives you a decent slot of time to figure out if those extra features are worthwhile.

ImageShack has several handy options. You can adjust your image privacy settings, making sure only people with the link can see your photos. There is also the option to create extensive albums, complete with tags and other organizational tools. ImageShack has an Android and iOS app, too, so you can upload and share your images on the go.

6. Free Image Hosting

freeimagehosting free image host photos

Free Image Hosting is one of the oldest free image hosting options still online, operating since 2003! It is another basic but extremely handy free host for your images. You can upload images up to 3MB to Free Image Hosting using the file types JPG, BMP, PNG, or GIF.

That’s it. Free Image Hosting works well and will keep your images online forever, or so long as the site remains up and running. Given its existing history, it will remain online for the foreseeable future.

Free Image Hosting for High-Resolution Photography

If you’re looking for something more professional, you can use photography hosting sites such as Unsplash or 500px to host high-resolution images for free. These high-res free image hosting sites offer your images for download with accreditation and often feature as some of the best free stock photography sites The Top 15 Sites for Copyright and Royalty-Free Images Here are the best stock photography websites that will ensure you always have access to copyright and royalty-free images. Read More . In the case of 500px, there is a premium image tier that’ll help you earn cash from the photos you take.

However, 500px and Unsplash won’t accept just any picture you throw at them. Editors curate the content, so you won’t see random memes or grainy pictures.

What Is the Best Free Image Hosting Site?

With so many options, choosing the absolute best free image hosting site is difficult. If you use your smartphone to take photographs, Google Photos is an incredible option. It’s free, offers automatic uploading and curation, and you can access it anywhere.

Do you want to touch up your photos before uploading them? Check out the best free photo editing apps for iOS. Or, if you’re rocking an Android, the best free photo editing apps for Android The Best Photo Editing App for Android If you're editing photos on Android, Snapseed with serve you well. But if not, we also have a few alternatives to recommend. Read More .

    I came to visit by searching place that nothing to worry about bandwith. From all of image hosting offering an unlimited bandwith we have to know exactly whether it is true because if something is free then there should something else is managed in order they can continue to services. I would prefer to use free bandwith offered by blogger or more secure: picasa.

    Arrrgh, I heard about ShareAPixel from here, and now this is their current front page:
    "Due to abuse of this service, this website and all uploaded images will be temporarily unavailable until january 1, 2010"

    Well, back to checking comments here for a good alternative...

      Tim,
      you can try http://images.gonzb.com highly recommended to host any size pictures. to avoid watermark you can register and make an album. Best thing about it is the original image can be downloaded and derivatives are protected from direct download. you can even manage permissions on user albums.

    AllYouCanUpload no longer exists... It's now redirecting to Webshots. Boo.

    I just used ShareAPixel after seeing it in a comment and was pretty impressed, though... Did what I needed (no-resize, fast site & upload, png image, and hotlinking) with a minimum of fuss, so I'll be adding it to my little Symbaloo "tools" page! :)

  18. mosstromo
    October 18, 2009 at 12:31 am

    Update on AllYouCanUpload (October 18, 2009):
    They are no longer accepting uploads. Their page redirects you to a related image hosting site called Webshots.

    And TinyPic tells me that at the moment I can't sign up with them. It has done so a few times now, so I imagine that maybe they don't take new subscribers anymore (but I am unsure of this).

    Just to keep you informed :-)

    For FREE photo storage, DotPhoto is the best. It is unlimited in size (pixels) and numbers of photo we can upload. And speaking of FREE photo storage and sharing, I opt WEBHSOTS. While Flick just allows 200 images, Photobucket just allows 1GB for free members, webshots, in my case as a free member, provides more than 5000 images and adds 100 every month. GBU all!

    Here's other:
    CrewImages:
    You can upload as free member or you can register an account.
    If you upload as free member you can upload a single image or up to 10 images.
    If you are a registered member, you can upload the same amount of images, but you can create your own galleries, with or without password. And you can upload images from ZIP Files too :).

    There is CrewImagesX.Com, where you can upload adult images.

    Limit: 3 mb each image.

You will have several types of links to the photo that you have stored with us including a direct link which makes it suitable to publish the photo anywhere while the links can be also used in websites, blogs and any content management system. You don't even have to register to be able to upload but registration gives you the benifit of tracking your photos and know how many views did it get and where those views are coming from and the best thing is that it's all FREE!

    MultiShack.com is an easy image hosting solution for everyone. Have you ever wanted to share a picture with a friend, or many friends, yet didn't want to go through the trouble of creating an account at other image host providers, or resorting to something as inefficient as email? With this website, you can easily upload any image from your computer and share it with anyone in the world! The image is stored on the MultiShack server indefinitely.
    After uploading an image, the website generates a link to your picture. Copy and paste this link anywhere you want, such as a chat client or message board. In fact, MultiShack.com automatically generates the necessary bbcode ([img] [/img]). All you have to do is copy and paste, and the image is instantly viewable.

    TinyPic is the best choose imo from the lists. Really uncensored and uploaded images load very fast.

    imageshack and tinypic is pretty ok, but i really prefer myimg.info. No signups and lots of functionality, and none of those irritating popups.

    I think Photobucket provides this capability. Some of the others may allow this as well, check them out.

    Thanks for sharing. Photobucket is my top choice as well, however I wish they had released some sort of browser addon to make things faster and more convenient.

    Thanks for adding it here. I think it's the only image host that lets you upload files directly from your cellphone (some restrictions apply) . Nice

    July 9, 2007 at 2:07 pm

    You can add onedump.com to the list, one of the image hosts i am using mostly :)

    Hey,

    I think sipifi.com/images should be added to that list. They have the same service as imageshack and don't have a limit on bandwidth or anything.

    @Michael
    Thanks for the link. Although, I find it weird that there are no 'FAQ' and 'Terms & Conditions' pages. Any thoughts?
    And also what about Hotlinking, does it allow that ?

    Thanks, just checked it out, seems good. As for everyone else, here are some features:
    - allowed image types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, bmp, tif, tiff
    - max file size: < 1.5 mb - unlimited hosting and bandwidth

  95. Theo
    May 4, 2007 at 9:43 am

    Another new kid around the block is ImageSpar. These guys provide unlimited hosting for most image types with unlimited bandwidth.
    You don't even have to worry about your files getting deleted due to inactivity as the images are never deleted.

    @fred lapides
    While I agree that some people may wish to upload photos which maybe bigger then 1.5 MB, I think it's rather inefficient way to share your photos. A page featuring couple of such images will take several seconds to load which is generally quite annoying.

  101. fred lapides
    March 23, 2007 at 10:11 pm

    I have searched all over and finally settled on a site that costs me 5 bucks per month. But it meets all my needs so it is worth it since I do post manyh photos. Why this site?
    1. grab at least ten pictures at a clip (2) adult photos allowed(3) show exact size you will get along with the code to use (4) offers small, medium, large, very large--different size thumbs to pick from when you upload. I prefer larger photos at my site so this is much better than most other uploaders.
    you can try it lots of times, free. then you either subscribe or can no longer use it

      Agree! I have been all over the place looking for what glowfoto does. Needed the 10 at a time, easy to copy and paste; variety of sizes to choose from; simple to use. Nothing rivals this for my needs.

    quick summary for imagepile.net:

    March 22, 2007 at 11:18 am

    ImageShack has a 100 MB per hour bandwidth limit.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of Fotki. I've done a writeup on them here: http://frozenpixels.wordpress.com/backups-part-2/

    March 22, 2007 at 7:41 am

    Those are very useful links, thanks. Also there are other image hosting services which are paying you when someone views your pictures. But those are very good if you do not want to share your pictures to whole internet.
