Imgur now gives you unlimited photo uploads for free, kills off old Imgur Pro pricing option


Imgur Android official app

Chances are if you’ve ever browsed Reddit, you’ve run into a photo or two hosted on (likely all of them). The photo sharing service that has become synonymous with Reddit has long been the site’s go-to photo sharing service thanks to its easy uploading capabilities, stupidly short URLs, and various posting options.

It’s been exactly 6 years since the service first went live and for their 6th birthday, Imgur has announced that they’re now “phasing out” their once paid premium option — Imgur Pro — by giving it away absolutely free of charge. Imgur Pro allowed users to upload as many photos as they’d like for only $23 a year which really wasn’t too unreasonable when compared to offerings from Dropbox or Google.

Starting today, here’s what you can look forward to with a regular free account:

  • Store an unlimited number of images in your account
  • Receive multiple thumbnail options on all uploads
  • Access complete image analytics and referrer data
  • Manage, edit or delete any uploaded image at any time
  • Interact with the awesome Imgur community through commenting, voting and sharing

Imgur has build up a strong community of users (dubbed “Imgurians) over the years, rivaling that of Reddit. While their official app for Android is only ho-hum, there are multiple 3rd party options available on Google Play with better design and added functionality. You can download the official Imgur app via the Play Store link below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Nice, now I can get the Pro version for free without ads (using ad blocker in Xposed)! =D

    1. There’s an Xposed module called ad blocker? I can’t seem to find it.

      1. I use Unbeloved Hosts. Sorry, meant to say “an” ad blocker, though there’s a few more than that in the Xposed store that probably work just as well.
