Frequently Asked Questions

What is XOMF?

As you've no doubt deduced, XOMF is a free image host that allows anyone to upload and share images in all major formats. It's light-weight and easy to use, contains very few calories, and using it won't cost you a cent. You can upload files in every major format without having to register an account, and you can share images easily through Facbook, Twitter, Reddit, forums, and other social mediums.

XOMF is pronounced "zomf", in one syllable.

How is XOMF different?

We think that XOMF is the simplest way to share images ever. Most image hosts are complex and have all kinds of features nobody needs or wants, and shove advertising down your throat as much as possible. We don't. Here are a few of our best features:

How big can images be?

Images can be any width and height and can be up to 50 megabytes in size. Other than that, go hog wild.

How long will my images last?

Images last forever. We don't delete old images, even if they go for years without any views. You can use XOMF to store your own personal images forever, at no cost, and never have to worry about whether or not we'll delete them.

How do I share an image on my web site?

XOMF provides you with several ways to link to your uploaded images. You can choose from a variety of thumbnail sizes and XOMF will generate both HTML (for websites) and BBCode (for forums) to save you time. If you're not familiar with HTML, w3schools provides a free tutorial that might help.

How can I link to XOMF on my web site?

Hey, you're cool and we like you. If you're familiar with HTML, just insert the following code into your website to link to XOMF:


How can I delete an image I uploaded?

When you upload an image to XOMF, we give you a secret deletion link you can use to delete the image at a later date. Make sure you save the deletion link when it's given to you, because there's no way to generate a new deletion link after the upload process. Because we have no way to identify the person who uploaded an image, we aren't able to remove images (unless compelled by law, such as in the case of copyright infringement) that aren't deleted using the deletion link. For that reason, it's important that you save the deletion links we generate for you if you think you'll ever need to get rid of an image you upload.

What do I do if someone is sharing my images without my permission?

We comply fully with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) and will act according to the law in response to any legitimate takedown request we receive. For information on our DMCA policy and how to submit a DMCA takedown notice to us, please see our DMCA policy page.

If your problem is that someone is sharing the link to an image you uploaded to XOMF yourself, please keep in mind that by uploading your images you're granting permission to anyone in the world to view and share those images in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. You can opt to remove your images from XOMF (if you saved the deletion link for a particular image) at any time, and XOMF doesn't retain any ownership of your images.

Please note that XOMF is only responsible for its own content; if another site is hotlinking images you've uploaded and you object to that, it's your responsibility to speak to them directly.
