CNET Launches Free Image Hosting
CNET has launched AllYouCanUpload, a free image hosting site that doesn’t require registration. Sites like PhotoBukcet have been wildly popular for those that want to include images in comments on sites that get lots of traffic (like Fark.com), but don’t want that traffic to be the downfall of their server.
Allyoucanupload.com is an online space where you can store (host) images to embed in pages elsewhere on the Internet. Use allyoucanupload.com to add images to your other online spaces, such as online auctions (eBay), blogs (Blogger, TypePad), message boards, online classifieds, and social networking sites (Xanga, MySpace). You upload, we host, you post. It’s that simple.
If you want to be able to organize your images in albums, you can sign up for an account. However, if you just want a place to upload an image to link to, no account is required.
Many are calling this launch disruptive, saying that it is undercutting the efforts of other sites like Photobucket and Imageshack, both of which are already wildy successful and well supported.
