Imageshack - No More Image Embedding From Free Accounts?


Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Imageshack (IS) was once considered the go-to site for free image hosting, and was the fourth fastest growing web brand worldwide back in July 2006.

But it's been downhill for the once-reliable IS ever since they switched to a paid subscription service at the beginning of this year, no longer allowing uploads from existing free accounts. And if the current front page of Oldies but Goodies (OBG) is any indication, IS is now to be avoided like the plague.

The sudden replacement of the background image on the front page of OBG with a generic 'Click and Discover Imageshack' logo suggests that IS is no longer allowing existing accounts that have not upgraded to a Premium subsription to embed images on other sites. (I have yet to confirm this from an official source, and I hope that I am proven wrong in my assertion, but that seems like the more obvious answer.)

At some point I suspect the background images will be restored; whether it's IS allowing embedding again, or OBG switching to another host, remains to be seen.

In the meantime, let's hope that this possible suspension of service by IS is (a) temporary, and (b) not the beginning of a trend.



OBG, keep up the good work. :jump
