ImageBam was launched in 2013 and is powered by Linux servers. The company's website is designed to be a fast and free image hosting website. ImageBam's simple layout is very user-friendly and works with any web browser. It offers customized image URL sharing for your photos, as well as organizational tools for your online storage. ImageBam supports several media file types including JPG, GIF, and PNG images. There are several methods for uploading images: multi-upload for bulk upload needs, zip-upload, basic upload, and video upload (although that link appears to be down currently).

The Good

  • Free Account
  • Unlimited Uploads
  • Additional Features 
  • Photo Management Tools

Free Account

ImageBam is concentrated on a fast and free service to upload images. It is indeed a completely free service, with no hidden fees or features reserved for paying users. The seemingly outdated FAQ section does mention a premium, paid account which blocks ads, but no ads are currently visible and paid accounts are not currently advertised. 

Unlimited Uploads

The company also offer multiple upload options based on the number of files and type of file formats you need to host online. ImageBam is one of the few image hosting websites that offer a zip file upload for quick and easy uploading. 

Additional Features

  • 10 MB file size limit
  • Unlimited downloads
  • Fast, reliable servers
  • Easy to use
  • Customized URL for sharing
  • Images are stored "for life"

Photo Management Tools

ImageBam is great if you are simply looking for an easy and free online service to hold some of your photos and an account is not required. But with a free registered account, users have access to even more photo management tools, including image and gallery organization and the ability to add titles and descriptions to galleries or standalone uploaded images. 


The Bad

  • Lack of Customer Service
  • Lacks Some Features
  • Direct Link Limitations

Lack of Customer Service

One major concern is the lack of any type of customer service for ImageBam. If you are having any issues with the website, there is no phone number or email to contact (note: there is a link to email the company, but it doesn't work). There is a Support Forum page with lots of information relevant to photo storing, however, there is no way to directly contact 

Lacks Some Features 

As far as image file hosting companies go, ImageBam is lacking in some areas: 

  • No options to directly share to popular social media sites
  • No photo syncing
  • Not family friendly (adult images allowed)
  • Uploads are not as fast as advertised
  • No image editing capabilities
  • No photo products

Direct Link Limitations 

According to the site's FAQs, only linking with the image URLs within the provided share codes is officially supported, any other links are subject to possible irreversible changes which may break them.


The Bottom Line

ImageBam explains on its homepage that it recently partnered with a new team with experience with large-scale hosting companies, making it a stronger service provider for users seeking a home for their image galleries. However, it still has some weaknesses that may be a dealbreaker for prospective users, so they may want to consider a different image hosting provider. It is convenient that ImageBam has a free and easy-to-use format, however, it lacks some features that professionals would deem essential for an image hosting website.
