Image System Updates and PNG Image Support

Hi everyone,

Last night we rolled out a new update to our image hosting system and it may be causing some of your images to display a “file not found” or “image servers offline” error message. I just wanted to post a quick note to reassure everyone that all your files are still there and secure. Essentially the system is still updating all image content and re-rendering the thumbnails for every image currently hosted on MediaFire causing any image that has not yet been updated to display a temporary error. With over 40 million users now hosting with us that’s a lot of images to update! Fortunately, it shouldn’t take too much longer.

By popular request this update to the image hosting system also includes additional support for .png, .tiff, .ico, and .psd formats as well as most other commonly used image file formats and file extensions.

Just to clarify, your image files are still downloadable however thumbnails and embedded versions will appear offline or display an error until the system has completed updating them.

Thanks again for your patience. We’re excited to now finally be supporting even more image types for your galleries and for embedding in your favorite websites.

– Tom

    Does MediaFire support online rar/unrar or zip/unzip?
    If no, can make this available?
