MacApper has an article up on a simple dashboard widget that can upload an image to ImageShack and copy it’s URL to your clipboard. A simple way to share a picture with friends or family over for instance an IM.

I use a different approach however. ImageWell.

ImageWell is a simple app where you drag in a file, or paste from the clipboard, and then with the click of a button it will upload it to a location of your choice, and if desired copy the resulting URL to your clipboard. And close the app. ImageWell doesn’t integrate with ImageShack or the likes, you will need your own server for hosting. FTP or iDisk works fine. It also has a ton of options for everything from watermarking to scaling, rotating and setting the quality (compression). That’s the beauty however: it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. You can have your picture hosted, with the URL on your clipboard, literally with one click. Or you can do a whole lot more.

There is a free version available, which works just fine. Paying a slump of money will get you batch processing and more.

This is one of a handful of apps that I can say I use on a weekly basis, if not daily.
