Imgur kills off Pro subscription, offers unlimited uploads for free

Imgur has today announced that it is phasing out Pro subscriptions for good, instead offering the previously paid-for features free of charge.

The image-sharing website says the move is in celebration of its sixth birthday, noting that the subscription plan was originally announced on the site’s first birthday.

All users of the website will now have access to every previously Pro feature, the most tempting of which is the ability to store an unlimited number of images in your account.

Other perks include multiple thumbnail options for all uploads, complete image analytics and referrer data, and the ability to manage, edit, or delete uploaded images at any time.

You’ll also be able to interact with the rest of the Imgur community via comments, votes, and sharing.

Imgur plans to continue monetising the website through ad-based revenue, although the removal of subscriptions means no one will be able to access an ad-free version of the site.

Communicating via a blog post, the company wrote: “It’s been an amazing six years for Imgur. What began as a simple image uploading service has transformed into a community of the Internet’s most dynamic visual storytellers.”

Imgur has become the best place to explore, share, and discuss the Internet’s images – and we couldn’t have done it without your support and loyalty.”

It continued: “We’re looking forward to many more years of uniting the universe through images with you. Enjoy the free stuff!”
