I feel it has been quite good since I started using it a few months back. However, for the past few days I have not been able to view the images I uploaded onto my website. It has just been a little red box for all the images.

Easily the best host I found. No bandwidth limit, no complicated registration. Very easy to use. I use it all the time to host pictures in forums free.

An update to my previous review. I *did* get the "unable to upload" error message ONCE. I've found that even though the message appeared, the file was still uploaded. If you find that you get this message, you may/should be able to find your image at the following location:

IMAGE: http://images5.theimagehosting.com/FILENAME.EXTENSION
THUMBNAIL: http://images5.theimagehosting.com/FILENAME.th.EXTENSION
(replace FILENAME and EXTENSION with the filename and three or four letter extension of your file)

As for contact addresses, you could try webmaster@theimagehosting.com or use the contact page they have listed as "Report Abuse" on the top menu of every page:

http://www.theimagehosting.com/contactus.php

I've tried both, but have yet to receive a reply.

One final addendum to my last review. Since TheImageHosting doesn't change the names of the files you upload, you *may* find that you've uploaded a file that has the same name as one they already host. If that's the case, they will add a dot and a number to the end of the file name. For example:

http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.1.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.20.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.50.gif

The thumbnails for the above images would be at:

http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.th.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.1.th.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.20.th.gif
http://images5.theimagehosting.com/banner.50.th.gif

I thought it might be useful for others to have this additional information.

I had no problem uploading an image just now. I actually uploaded MANY images without a single problem recently.

The only problem is that the support@theimagehosting.com e-mail address doesn't work. Messages sent to it come back with a "smtp;550 unknown user" error message.

That's not to say that this service is perfect. My only "problems" with the service are as follows.

1. There are no sorting options on the My Images page (registered users only). Currently the service only sorts (mostly) by Upload Date. We should be able to sort by Image (File Name), Size, and Upload Date.

2. You can only upload files one at a time. I think that for those of us who created accounts, we should be given the ability to do batch uploading. We could upload either through the browser via a zip file (all images in one zip) or via FTP.

3. There is no confirmation for deleting an image. I asked about this one over a year ago when I first signed up for the service and it still hasn't been added.

4. Thumbnails are of very poor quality (they're really compressed). Those of us who created imagehosting accounts should be given an option to choose the thumbnail compress setting/image quality.

Otherwise this service is great. I especially like that it doesn't change the file names of the images you upload (unless there already is an image with that name on their server).
