    Default Free animated gif image hosting server?

    Hi all,

    Imageshack has recently stopped hosting animated gifs for free. It appears that they have grandfathered previously posted animations - some that I posted last year are still working. But anything I upload now that is new will upload and display, but does not animate. They want $8 per month for an account that allows animated gifs

    I'm looking for recommendations for alternatives as my own research is falling short. I am looking for a suggestion of a image host that meets the following criteria.


    • Free image hosting
    • Animated gifs work and the animation does not break.
    • Hot linking allowed (so I can use it here in the forum)
    • Registration not required (this may be negotiable)
    • allows up to 3 MB images
    • Has enough bandwidth for me to use here and not cause a problem
    • Mature enough that they are not a flash in the pan to close shop next week.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    PHOTOBUCKET is a Good site, BUT REGISTRATION IS Required

    Thanks guys! I went with the tinypic hosting site and it appears to be working well. So far my animations are working. See results here.

    imgur.com is great for quick stuff - however I would recommend Photobucket for ease of storage and finding photos later.
