On August 5, 2011, the site reported that it was hosting more than 6 billion images. Photos and videos can be accessed from Flickr without the need to register an account, but an account must be made to upload content to the site.

Imgur is a free and simple image hosting service with image editing feature. Signup is optional. The maximum non-animated file size you can upload is 20MB. Non-animated images over 1MB for anonymous uploads and 5MB for account holders will be lossily compressed.

Video uploads cannot be longer than 60 seconds. GIF and
video files over 2MB will be converted to GIFVs, where the sound is removed. Large GIFs will be converted to GIFV, which shrinks file size while maintaining a high quality, perfect for our expert GIF makers.There is an upload limit of 50 images per hour.
