Imgur launch

Product Release0 Comments

Reddit user MrGrim creates Imgur, an image hosting service. The user describes it as his gift to Reddit:

I got fed up with all the other image hosts out there so I made my own. It doesn’t force you to compress your images, and it has neat things like crop, resize, rotate, and compression from 10-100. It’s my gift to you. Let’s not see anymore imageshack/photobucket around here 😉 I’ll be listening if anyone has some suggestions.
