An image hosting service is a type of online platform that allows users to upload, store, and share digital images. These services provide an interface for users to specify the image file location for uploading, which can be done through forms or FTP access. Once uploaded, the images are stored on the service’s server and can be linked to using HTML[2] or BBcode. Image hosting services often set restrictions regarding image size, storage space, and bandwidth. They also offer various tools and features to enhance user experience[1], such as creating photoblogs or galleries, auto-resizing images, and uploading via smartphones. These platforms can also track where and when the images are accessed using unique image URLs and log request details. While many of these services are free and supported by advertisements, there are also paid options with additional features and storage. Prior to the advent of these services, sharing images online was a complex process.
