Super Fast Uncensored Image Hosting

It seems that the lovely Swedes from The Piratebay are branching out more and more into different Internet services. After announcing their YouTube competitor they released an uncensored image hosting service called Bayimg.

Uncensored means that it is possible to upload all kinds of pictures as long as they are legal under Swedish law which is pretty much everything imaginable except for the most extreme kind of images that are banned in nearly every country of the world. The site is blazing fast, uses a slick ajaxified interface and tags to categorize images.

Even non registered users may upload images, add tags and get a removal code which is the only way to delete the image once it has been uploaded.

About 140 file formats are supported right now by the service including rar and zip archives. If you upload more than one picture an album is automatically created and an additional address for the album will be given to the uploader.

Probably the main reason why it is that fast is that it does not display any fancy images or other gimmicks that you sometimes find posted on other image hosting sites.

It all boils down to uploading images quickly from your local computer system. Keep in mind that you can upload zip or rar files with a size of up to 100 Megabyte as long as they contain image files that you want to be hosted  by the site. A new feature that seems to have been added lately is the option to resize images that you upload automatically.

Update: Another new feature is the option to mark the image(s) as offensive .

Since all images are hosted publicly, it is possible to browse them if you get hold of their address. If you have added tags to images, you can also browse them using tags. This is done with a click on tags which displays a large tag cloud to you that you can use to browse images by tag on the website.

The big issue with BayImg is still that it does not support private password protected albums and photos. This makes it ideal for the distribution of public photos and images but nothing else.
