    Hello,
    I've been hosting images with ImageShack before but it became chargeable later.
    I then moved over to Google Drive but it discontinued supporting image sharing in August 2015.

    I have asked aunt Google what free image hosting services are there but I can't decide which one to chose.
    Any recommendations?

    I personally use imgur.com it's the same thing that imageshack used to be and generates the links for you in a few coding languages

    Imgur is free and simple to use. There are others that probably are good, but I've never had a reason to change.

    Imgur for when you need to store them forever.
    Puush for when you just quickly need to share them.

    I always use
    https://postimage.io/

    No signup or bullshit, just really quick and simple image sharing and you can choose if it stays up forever or a specific amount of days

    I use Filetrip too !

    I can manage and delete later them if needed.

    I use sli.mg. It's personally the BEST image host. Imgur feels super clunky to me and sli.mg you just drag and drop the file. I use it for everything.
