Rest of the Day: You Can Now Upload Images Directly to Reddit
If you visit Reddit often, you are also familiar with Imgur , an image hosting service that has served as the backbone of the site for many years. But this is about to change as soon you will be able to upload images directly to Reddit, no third party hosting required.
- Indeed, Reddit is launching its own image hosting service. This feature is distributed to a small number of users and allows you to post static images up to 20MB and GIFs up to 100MB directly to Reddit. What does this mean for Imgur?
