Oct 15, 2015 · 2 min read

Dear ImageShack users, since 2004 ImageShack’s team has been working hard to create easiest to use, best performing Image Hosting and delivery solution for all users. To continue to improve our services for our premium users, ImageShack will implement policy changes that are listed in detail below.

Starting November 1st, 2015 ImageShack will be implementing a new policy that will affect image delivery for some of our users, here are those changes:

Premium* ImageShack accounts will not be affected in any way. You will continue to be able to use your ImageShack account, and all images will be served to your pages.

Any free accounts (non-premium) will no longer deliver images to any sites, blogs or forums. This change will be implemented by November 1st, 2015. If you have a free account, have images that are linked to any sites, blogs or forums and want to continue to have images delivered to those pages, please convert to premium* account here:, for only $3.99/mo, you will continue to have unlimited storage and unlimited delivery of your images.

Free account holders will still be able to access their ImageShack accounts, and be able to download their images for a period of 3 months. You will be able to upgrade to a premium account at any point during that time to enable image delivery outside pages. If you chose not to upgrade, your account access will be discontinued by the end of January 31st, 2016, and your ImageShack account will be considered abandoned.
