A free image hosting service?

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Tue Oct 14, 2014 6:16 pm

Is there a free image hosting service, like imgur or something like that?
Reason I don't want to use imgur is because I need to be able to replace the image with something else without the link changing. Just like if I was hosting the image on my website or something like that. (I don't have a website so I cannot do that though..)

You can also set up your own free hosting for a website and for online testing of your games which is needed if you do any game for the web. thus then you would also have a place to host any of your images. There are many free hosting services out there to use. One that I have used.

@spacedoubt If you actually google, it won't present any site that actually has the ability to upload a new image without changing the link.

Txchaser's advice is solid, why not sign up for a free hosting service? That way you get your own free server, where you can host any type of file (including images). If you'd like to update the image without changing the link, simply upload the new version to the server!

@komanderkin @Txchaser that hoster is weird, if I upload a image it becomes corrupt it looks like. The image is just ruined and looks really weird. I will try to search for other hosting services (free), but most of them (like 000webhost) has a ad popping up on launch, so the image won't show.

@condolent I can't post links here, but there's a free hosting service called 5gbfree.com which (as far as I remember) doesn't have any popups and other nag stuff. I'm sure there are others like it out there, too!

@komanderkin I tried their service, sadly they don't support cross-domain so I cannot use them for Construct 2 (loading images from URL) :(

You might want to try something like wordpress.org or drupal gardens. Create a private content type that has file attachments, and manage them that way.

Or just get a cheap shared hosting account.

@skeeloth sadly, drupal gardens did not support cross-domain :( And I can't seem to figure out if wordpress offers free hosting or not, but it didn't seem like it :/
