Hey everyone!  Team pico is excited to announce the general availability of our
image hosting service, [imgs.sh](https://imgs.sh).

We also wanted to support the ability for our blogs to upload images but
weren't exactly sure how to do it.
We have been working on `imgs` for a few months now, figuring out the best way
to handle uploading images from our blogs while at the same time being its own
separate service.  We've been using it for our own personal blogs with great
success so we're excited to release it for public use.

If you already have a pico account, you have everything you need to start
uploading images with your blogs!

You also don't need to use our other pico services to be able to use imgs.
Just `scp` or `rsync` like you normally would but to `imgs.sh`

```
scp profile.jpg name@imgs.sh:/
```
If you already have a pico account, then you already have access to `imgs`.

## How does it work?

When a user uploads an image, we immediately convert it to `webp`.  Then we
have an API that serves those web optimized images.  We also allow for minimal
image manipulate -- like resizing images.

```
[!profile](/profile/x500)     # auto scale width

We have some other ideas for imgs but we wanted to get the MVP launched before
continuing feature development.

Also be sure to read our [help page](https://imgs.sh/help#integrations) for more info

We hope you enjoy!
We'd love to get feedback on the service so please give it a try and let us
know what you think.
