San Francisco-based image sharing service Imgur has raised $40 million in its first funding round from Andreessen Horowitz with a smaller contribution from Reddit.

Imgur provides a fast and easy image sharing service, online and through its mobile apps, and reports over 130 million unique visitors per month.

Founded in 2009 and bootstrapped since, Imgur will use the new funds to add content discovery features, upgrade its mobile platforms, and improve ads.
