Is there a good alternative to imgur ?

I don’t really like imgur but it’s cool to upload your picture just at one place so I’m wondering if there’s any nice replacement to it.

I would recommend https://picc.io as a imgur alternative. Its simple and easy to use.

Pixelfed is probably the best option. Here’s the main instance: https://pixelfed.social/

This one isn’t open source, but https://postimages.org/ is much easier to use than imgur, and it can even do albums.

I thought that Pixelfed was more like an alternative to something like instagram (maybe it’s the same as imgur but I’ve never been a big instagram guy :downcast face with sweat: ).
Thx for the second one, it seems really cool even if it’s not open source.

They seem kinda different, but both are in the end just a place to upload pictures. The difference is that instagram and pixelfed have more user-centric / following type features than imgur, which was meant originally just to be a quick upload bin. Although now imgur is trying to be kind of a new social network in itself with having “tags”, votes, and comment threads.

I agree, I’ve been using postimages for sometime now.

Lutim is my alternative of choice.

In case you already use Nextcloud you can generate a link to share any file and for images you get a preview like this:

https://cloud.disroot.org/s/g9YZCmayM8g7NBa

And from there you can copy the address of the image and embed it like you would with Imgur.

Other than https://postimages.org/ there’s also https://imgbb.com/ in the same vein.

ImgBB (I think.) Its the least invasive I’ve found thus far.

I use catbox to host images, videos, & other files. You can create albums as well.

Are you (F)(L)OSS? no. Why don’t you release your source? Because a lot of it is messy and I don’t like competition.

I assumed it was based on the pomf code, but I guess not. I’d still recommend it for others though

I have used ttm.sh

ttm.sh and 0x0.st (“null pointers”) are great if you wanna share something quick with someone else, but they’re not a permanent hosting solution. IIRC images (files) get deleted after a year or less, depending on the size.

The one alternative should be Lemmy in the Future. People on reddit used it to publish many pictures, then reddit solved it poorly.
