There are a number of websites where you can host images for free, just as there are countless social networks where people happily post pictures of their children, their lunch and their children's lunches. One of the most popular websites used for sharing memes and other potentially viral content is Imgur, a site that describes itself as "the simple image sharer." The free online service is very easy to use.

Register for an Account: A user account is not required to upload photos and other images to Imgur, but registering for an account does provide some added benefits. It allows you to keep track of all your uploads far more easily, for instance, and you can only comment and like or dislike other user's submissions when you have an account of your own. There are two main methods for signing up for an Imgur account, both of which start from the registration page.

Posting a screenshot to the forums can be a bit confusing at times, so I've decided to share how I go about sharing wonderful pictures with all of you!

1) Go to "Imgur" in a web browser. If you aren't signed into Imgur, first click sign in in the top-left side of the page and enter your email address and password.

2) Find the image that you would like to upload to "imgur". (You can find it either on your computer or on the internet)

3) Select "upload images" at the top of the "imgur" website.

4B) If you are uploading an image from the internet, then copy and paste the image URL into the "enter URLs to upload from web".
