I had some down time recently, as some may know from my earlier post, so I decided to create a new image hosting website that will be dedicated to STEEM Post images. It will have all the categories found on steemit (starting with the steemit category) and 100% uptime so no more spaceship blank images on your post ;) I will be running the site myself at the start but may need moderators and help as it grows, so anyone interested feel free to jump in and send me your contact info at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be keeping it 100% AD free and hopefully if it grows I will continue to keep it free, even as upgrading is required, as a give back to this awesome community!
I just launched the site essentially in beta to get the kinks out & get feedback on what we want and need for our post images / gifs. I will be updating it today and upcoming days alongside posts with update information.

Max image size has been bumped up from 2MB to 20MB!
Is the limit to low? is it too high? Let me know. Also let me know if you have any trouble with larger files.

Some have experienced small amount of lag while uploading multiple images via the mobile version of the site, if this happens to you please let me know, it may be nothing but it could also be something...
Also I want some awesome homepage backsplash images for the site and would love them to be by you steemit creative folks so... Go check out my other post - https://steemit.com/steemit/@blueorgy/steemimg-com-looking-for-an-awesome-homepage-image-get-featured-steem
