If you’ve been keeping track of Web applications like I have, then you’ve probably noticed at least one thing, and that is that simplicity is extremely important. When Web applications first started to pop up everywhere, a lot of developers were adding a ton of useful but unnecessary features just because they could. These days, users appreciate a beautifully designed app that does one main thing and does it well. Image sharing is something that can be either complicated or unbelievably simple, and thankfully imgur keeps things simple.

When you first arrive at the site, it kind of looks like you’ve found a search engine by accident, but that’s not the case. Just select the images that you want to upload, and if you want to edit them, you can. Users are able to perform simple modifications like changing the orientation, quality, and size. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to link directly to the image, embed it, share it on social services, and so on. It’s always good to be familiar with services like imgur.
