Have you noticed that i've been a bit "inactive" this days? No right? I'm not that popular . But the reason of my lack of activity is just one... IMGUR IS DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE!
But, Why don't you just use the Socialphy Images Uploader? Well, the picture you just saw was uploaded with the Socialphy uploader, but it was just a screenshot.
The Socialphy Uploader can be a good option when it comes to photos or screenshots, but when it comes to graphics... well... :/ The graphics i make for my posts are graphics without background or with transparent background.
Why i use transparent background? I've seen that some people use Color Themes on Socialphy. So, for example, if you have a Black Theme and i use a white background (The majority have a white background so they'll no notice) you will see my images like this:
Nevertheless, people with White Background (Regular) will see it like this:
*Note both images have background color. Both of them were uploaded with the Socialphy Uploader.
Now, i'll show you the problem of uploading graphics with transparent background with the socialphy uploader.

The quality still isn't the best.

Seems pretty bad right? But don't be dissapointed, remember Socialphys is still on a Beta phase. This will change.
So, my today's post will help me, and help you, to find the best Free Image Hosting for Socialphy. Let's Start!
The first Hosting that i liked was Picasa, is an excelent image hosting which also helps you to have your images in order (you can create folders). You can upload image to picasa either via your Blogger blogs or using Google account. Picasa also provides you 1Gb of free storage space and Unlimited bandwidth. Images uploaded to Picasa Web Albums can be no larger than 20MB and are restricted to 50 megapixels or less. You can also edit your photos online and share with your friends. You can also store videos as well.
The only thing i disliked is the large URL's. I was used to imgur short URL's, but quality talks for himself.
I'll show you the quality of image on each hosting, like i did with the Socialphy uploader. The background colored image, and the transparent background image.
This hosting is really easy, you don't need to create account (but is always recommended). With this you can view how many people opened your pictures and galleries and to Keep your pictures organized on galleries. You can post images on blogs, forums, message boards etc.
Free Image Hostin is a web hosting service running on several dedicated linux web servers. Their dedicated server bandwidth is available for this service at no charge to all visitors. Registration is not required, but creating an account lets you manage your uploads and use other extra features
I really liked this hosting, short Url's, easy upload, and fast upload of images. It maintain your images quality.
TinyPic is a photo and video sharing service that lets you easily upload, link, and share your images and videos on MySpace, eBay, Orkut Scrapbooks, blogs, and message boards. TinyPic allows upload and hosting of JPEG (jpg), png, gif and tiff files. Images that are larger than 1600 pixels (either width or height) are automatically resized to the largest acceptable size while maintaining their original aspect ratio. Tinypic does not accept standard-definition video files of sizes larger than 500 Megabytes or longer than 15 minutes. Videos longer than 15 minutes are truncated to 15 minutes.
This host is really easy, if you don't want to use the money making feature, you don't need an account, and you'll upload your images easily and fast. Imgzzz is new hosting service. You can earn money with uploading images. They have introduced earning system with your adsense code. You need to registered on website and add your adsense code. Upload image and share with yours friends.
Thanks for visiting, hope you found it useful. Those Image Hosting cover the needs of a graphics designer. But there are also good Hosting webs that aren't useful for transparent-background images but they are awesomely useful for your photos. •Flickr •PhotoBucket •ShutterFly
