Uploading to imagefap

1. My Fap
1A Image 1B Image
My Content : Organize folders
Add folder, delete folder, edit foldertitle, change order of folders, move galleries to different folder

Attention, deleting a folder also deletes any gallery you have forgotten to move from that folder.
Deleted folders can't be restored, they are removed from database immediately.

Q: Can I restore the galleries and images I deleted?
A: No you can't, but admin can try to restore content if it is still available on our servers.
You can send an email to, there is a small chance your galleries can be restored.
But remember, it is only a small chance. Imagefap does not support content restoration, admin offers it as a personal service.
Some users have abused this kindness and have asked again and again for restoration of recently deleted content.
From now on I will restore content only once, repeated requests WILL be ignored.

Backup before you delete !

You should always preserve your original content, or make back-up copies of such content, on your personal system.
Don't use Imagefap as the only source for your content.

Q: My passreset doesn't work, I can't login
A: It is usually caused by one or more of the following reasons:

Q: Other users have uploaded videos to their profile, do I have that option too?
A: Yes
Longhairfish explains it here so I just quote:
To do that you go to and log in with the same name and password as ImageFap.

The uploading in pretty straight forward, but the 'kind' of file (AVI, MPG or whatever) has to be a certain type of codec. That isn't very well explained. But I would say to give it a try and see what happens. When you have the video uploaded the results of your upload won't be instant. I forget how long the wait is for you to see your video. So be patient on that. When it is confirmed you should see it on your ImageFap profile page. But that sometimes does not work. All I can say is to try.

Q: I am having problems with my moviefap account, can imagefap help me?
A: No. Use the contact form available here: to make you request.
Always include the reason for your request, and the URL(s)of the material

Q: I have uploaded a lot of galleries today, I can see all of them on my profile, but only a view are shown on the main gallery page:
A: There is no limit to the amount of galleries you post, but only 6 galleries per day will be shown on the main gallery page. A day is defined as any 24 hour period

Q: I regret the username I registered, is it possible to change it?
A: Yes. Just check the following link to see if the name you want is available, ... ow+results
Send us an email with your first and second choice and we will change your account name without the loss of content

Legal username characters are 1-9, a-z, A-Z, _, -, space

Q: I have forgotten my username, is there a way to retrieve it?
A: If you can’t remember your username but know what email address you used, send an email to
We will email you your username. A request has been made to techs to create an option on the site to retrieve your username)

Q: I have forgotten both my username and my password. Can you still help me?
A: We can certainly try. If you remember the email address you signed up with, you can send an amail to, using that email address
We will send you your username and a temporary password, login with these and a new computer generated password will be sent.

Q: Can I still earn money with imagefap
A: No. This is no longer possible. Some of our accounts were blocked because we are an adult site, and other accounts are no longer accessible because these companies had major problems

Q: I have read the entire howto, my question isn't there. Where do I go for help?
A: We have two ways to ask for help

Vague or incomplete emails, or emails without a subject line will be ignored

Make sure to include your imagefap username, the subject line, and to submit your support request from your registered email address
If you are experiencing technical problems, include all relevant information and include a screenshot so we can see exactly what you see.
Include the web browser and operating system you are using

Imagine the unthinkable, you want to leave Imagefap.........forever

It sounds like something from a horror-story, but it can happen to any of us.

If you only want to de-activate your Imagefap account, simply clicking on the "Close Account" link from your account page will suffice.
Your fans, and everyone else will no longer be able to access your Imagefap profile, but all your profile information including your friends, galleries and everything else
will be just the way you left it. Make galleries private to hide them from public view, when you delete them it might be impossible to restore them again.

Delete your account.
This is not a decision you should take lightly, so make sure this is what you really want.
Start with removing your galleries (gallery listing)
If you change your mind now, you can send an email to, if you do this within 48h there is a small chance your galleries can be restored. But remember, it is only a small chance, so backup before you delete
You should always preserve your original content, or make back-up copies of such content, on your personal system.
You should not use Imagefap as the only source for your content.

What comes next is final, there's no turning back or changing your mind.
When you delete your Imagefap account all your information will be completely gone for good.

Remove your avatar
Remove your favorites (remove folder also removes galleries)
Cancel club memberships (if you own a club, send email to Delete club is still unavailable to club owners)
Remove fanbase
Remove who you are fan of
Delete relations
Remove comments from images
Remove profile comments
Empty mailbox

Close account

Everything is gone now and can't be restored, there is only one thing left to do.
Send an email to with the request to delete the account from the database.
Your account will be renamed and deleted as soon as possible.

There is one feature on Imagefap that puzzles me more then any other feature on our site.
The imagefap verification process:

Since the day it was introduced in october 2008, I have reviewed over 85.000 gender verification images.
It is amazing to find that only 9.683 users have passed the verification process.

Where did this go wrong? Why are there so many failed verifications?
I think the main problem is that users think the verification is used to verify their identity. It is not. It is a gender verification.
This means we need NO personal info at all.

I will try to explain the why and how of this both optional and voluntary process.

It is a feature we offer to all Imagefap users, but it is mainly for Imagefap's performers who do webcam shows in our chatrooms.
I want to emphasize that it is an optional feature, you don't need it to be a full member, we treat these accounts the same as unverified accounts.
It is something we offer to our users, not something we demand from our users.

It can also be used by female users to proof that they are genuine females, males masquerading as females on the internet is nothing new.
The likelihood is statistically higher that an imagefap user is female when she has passed the verification process

Because pictures can be downloaded from virtually anywhere, a verification image must meet certain requirements.

1. Username must be in the image, not added later with photo enhancing software (pref on a piece of paper, handwritten)
2. It must be clear that the person/user in the image is male/female ( use your imagination)
3. If you want to verify as a couple, there has to be more than one person in the image

For those who are worried that everyone can see their verification image, I can assure you, only admin is able to see them.
