What online image sharing service do you use?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

I'm dealing with lots of screenshots often for my blog and looking for a great service where I can store these images online.

For capturing I use ShareX and it supports Imgur (currently use), ImageShack, Flickr, Photobucket, Google Photos, Chevereto, etc...

The main consideration would be available space. Maybe you are aware of some services that offer some generous free plans for this?

I use Github issues.
Just create an Issue in any repo (can be yours or any another one).

Upload the image via Drag and Drop.

Github will generate the markdown code.
Copy and then close the page (Do not create the issue).

:)

You can also create a bucket on amazon s3 or Google cloud storage and allow public read only access.
See for example the pricing for google cloud storage if it might fit your needs : cloud.google.com/storage/pricing

That's what I was thinking too, especially since Sharex supports those options πŸ˜‰Thanks for the idea πŸ‘

I'm running into this issue a lot lately. I'm seriously considering just setting up a server of my own to serve images from.

Imgur is my favorite image sharing service.

You should self-host, Chevereto is indeed a self-hosted image sharing software, is not a service.

I know it, I made it.
