Img.ly is yet another one of those photo sharing sites built for twitter. So many apps doing the same thing makes me realize how lucky twitter users are with so many options! You do not like one service, try a similar one developed by someone else!
A simple photo sharing service with twitter oAuth, Img.ly is a good alternative to the existing image sharing sites built for twitter. The site provides with different options to viewing images.
The site lets you embed any of the images on your blog or site. You can subscribe to any users photo stream as well. Stats are displayed to help you know how popular a shared image has been with the community.
Have you used the tagging feature of FaceBook where you can tag your friends in a pic? Well, img.ly does something similar too. You can tag any twitter user and they would be notified of the same by @imglyNotifier. Like twitter search, img.ly even displays trending tags for images.

Since it’s beginning in 2006 Twitter has evolved to a powerful social media platform and community. It will change the way we publish and share visual information.
While there already are popular photo services (such as twitpic.com), none of them really evolved. None of them leveraged the dynamics and information flow of Twitter.
With img.ly we want to change that. Given our knowledge with photo platforms, we want to offer you a more sophisticated approach to publish photos and images and constantly enhance the service to the needs of the community.
