Best way to add own images online

So I’m currently on the Portfolio Project and want to add my own images (images of my other websites) onto CodePen, can anyone recommend the best site for me to add my images to to link them?
Cheers,

You could try imgur.com. Or still use code pro feature

Imgur doesn’t want users using them as an image host.

From their ToS:

Also, don’t use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network.

GitHub is my favorite option, so long as the images aren’t copyrighted.

I always just search for “free image hosting” and use the first one that looks legit. Imgur blocks CodePen, so skip them. In a “real” situation the images would be hosted with your other files (html, css, javascript, etc), but the free version of CodePen doesn’t include asset hosting.

I recommend against using workarounds for services that don’t want to be used for hosting (Dropbox, Google Photos, GitHub, etc) because they make efforts to prevent the workarounds.

Thanks, this is useful information :+1:

That makes sense like I’d have a folder for each part of my project…for now I’ll search as you’ve suggested :+1:

Well i used imgur in my projects on code pen. And it doesn’t look like imgur is blocked from allow codepen acess though

That’s strange. Most people find that imgur blocks CodePen, and its explicitly against the imgur Terms of Service.

Got an exception, right? :disappointed:Alright then.

Their blocking of CodePen may not be effective due to an update.
