Reddit Says So Long to Imgur

Posted on 5.26.2016

Reddit is reportedly launching its own in-house image uploading tool on the Web that will let users post images when sharing links. Users of the popular platform previously leveraged image-sharing site Imgur to do so.

The feature allows Redditors to upload images and GIFs – up to 20MB and 100MB respectively – directly to the website when posting a new thread.

In contrast to pics uploaded to Imgur, when opening Reddit-hosted images from any listing – like a front page, a user page or a subreddit – users will be directed straight to the conversation and comments about that image.

For now, Reddit is rolling out the new tool only to a small number – 16 in total – of selected communities, but there are plans to expand the service to 50 other subreddits starting from next week.
