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.
