Question

What's the easiest way to use my server as an image host?

Right now I use imgur.com to host all my images, but I’d rather host them myself. While it might be nice to have some things like description fields, all I really need is the direct image link to be accessible in a web browser. What’s the easiest way to use my DigitalOcean VPS as an image host? Keeping in mind it’s running CentOS, and is one of the cheaper plans.
