  1. Fileave

  2. My personal favorite. This site needs you to register with them before you can host images on their servers. They provide 50 MB of free storage. Hotlinking is allowed, with data transfer or bandwidth of 1 GB per month. Visit Fileave.

  3. ImageBoo

  4. You may upload the file in private or public mode, but I don’t know what it means. Both the methods give the same output! The maximum file size can be upto 2 MB. Visit ImageBoo.

  5. PicPanda

  6. Allows images of upto 5 MB to be uploaded at one go. However if you register, the limit goes upto 10 MB. Hotlinking is provided. Visit PicPanda.

  7. qfqy.com

  8. Allows you to upload images straight from your PC or from a link of the image, that may be hosted on another server. Maximum file size of a single image is 2 MB. Visit qfqy.com.
