List Rules Websites that allow users to upload their own photos for purposes of displaying them, storing them or sharing with others

Websites for sharing pictures and images, focusing on the largest and most popular photo platforms. Among the most popular online activities - especially since the explosive growth of social networks and online communities - is sharing photos, and a number of services have been created to quickly and easily allow people to upload, tag, publish, and share images across the Web. Though often photo services are integrated directly into online communities - as with Facebook and Twitter and their native photo applications - the services on this list continue to thrive independently, often by providing a large amount of storage space for photo albums or by permitting users to tweak, crop, and edit photos after they've been uploaded.

Many of these photo-sharing services are also tied to news aggregation sites, such as Digg, FunnyJunk, or Reddit, which allow users to quickly upload their own photos and images and then quickly post them to larger communities. These can also include uncensored image hosting and photo sharing sites. Sites like Imgur and ImageShack depend largely on these kinds of small images, or meme posts, to bring in new viewers, and have grown massive while hosting photos for some of the web's largest portals and communities.

This list contains the major websites for pic sharing and hosting photos. If you see a service that's among your favorites and isn't on the list, leave it in the comments and we'll add it!
