Unfortunately there is no documentation at all currently. Shutter is a
1-2 man project and most of our time is spend on implementing features
instead of writing documentation - shame on me ;-)

If you want to try it anyway you might want to have a look at the
existing modules, e.g.:

<shutter_root>/share/shutter/resources/modules/Shutter/Upload/UbuntuPics.pm

(The image hosting services are hard-coded in the main program
currently, so you have to change that as well)

There already is a release targeted for refactoring Shutters upload
mechanism and adding some new image hosting services:
https://launchpad.net/shutter/+milestone/0.88

Please be aware that there might be some massive changes. I would advise
you to wait for Shutter 0.88.

I struggled with a lot of the Perl code there, since I havent used that language in a long time, so I did a standalone program to accomplish what I needed:
