Simple Alternatives to TwitPic

Image sharing always take more than just a few clicks and on an average you need to wait for 2 minutes before you can upload and share a picture on Twitter using a service like TwitPic or YFrog. In this post, I am going to list 2 services that take the fuss out of Image sharing. All you need to do is drag and drop the image to the specified place and your computer takes care of the rest.


Minus is one of the simplest image sharing services I have come across. Just go to min.us and start dragging images into the browser window!

There is also a Gallery where you can find previously uploaded images and delete or modify them. This won’t work if you cleared the cookies in your browser.



I haven’t been a huge fan of Imgur until I started tweeting from the browser itself. To make the most of Imgur you need to get it’s one of it’s browser extensions. I’ve been using the Chrome extension of Imgur and it’s pretty good.


As you can see, all you need to do is Drag an image (or multiple images) into the window and wait for a few seconds for the link to the uploaded image shows up.
