Images under 1MB are compressed

EvilHom3r 8 years ago updated by Mikael Karlsson 7 years ago 1
On the FAQ page, it says "if the image is over 1MB then it will automatically be compressed or resized to 1MB", however I constantly have PNG images that are under 1MB compressed into JPEG. Please either update the FAQ with the proper size limit, or fix the algorithm that detects the size so that it doesn't compress images under 1MB. I did some quick testing, and it seems anything over approximately 770KB will be compressed.

Skip already seen images

I'd love it if I could browse in a mode where after I saw a submission, i would not see it again.  If browse something popular like /r/funny, or /r/adviceadminals, after going to the front page, i'll see a lot of of the same stuff.  It'd be nice if i knew everything i was loading was new to me.

Can I use imgur as "cdn" for layout graphic elements?

ephestione 9 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago 2
As the subject says: I cannot seem to find anything against it in the TOS, anyway does it bother you if I use PNG images hosted on imgur as background and CSS sprites of mywebsite to offload some HTTP requests? I am testing it now and seems to work very fine, and I am also giving credit to your site, just let me know if you would prefer me to stop doing this ;)
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago
Actually, in the ToS, it states "Website elements such as gradients and share icons." as something that's not allowed. Sorry, but you may have to find your own commercial CDN for something like that. If I see it, then your site may be blocked from hotlinking.

Hi, I have a suggestion for the "update to gallery" feature

Cedric Bikond 7 years ago 0

Here it is:

How about having a "buffer" gallery with no comments nor sharing options. and only registered members of imgur get to see it.

Only up/downvotes and reporting possible. If a picture doesn't meet a requirement of N upvotes or is reported, it will never be commented on and disappear from gallery. That would help take care of spam and "bad quality" uploads.

Just my two cents, that's it.

It would be nice to be able to grab a screenshot of a web page through a URL.  Could even allow web developers the ability to quickly see how a page will look in various browsers.  It would also allow quick and easy mirrors of a page before it gets taken down by Reddit traffic.

Allow for short HTML5 video's (instead of animated gifs)

H3g3m0n 7 years ago updated by Sushubh Mittal 5 years ago 4
I'm not suggesting full videos, theres already sites like youtube/vimeo for that and it would require probably require drastic changes to the CDN and storage.

Just as an alternative to animated gifs.

Just:
* Limited file sizes/lengths to sizes similar to animated gifs.
* Loop like gifs.
* No sound.
* No controls.
* Could even support a fallback to animated gifs when there is no support.

It would:
* Save file sizes/bandwidth
* Give better quality.
* Encourage other services to support the standard (forums and so on).

Compressing video into a sequence of pictures like we see with animated gifs is a silly hack.

If the images load in Chrome and Opera, but not in Firefox, then it has something to do with your Firefox installation, and is specific to your computer. There's no way for me to know exactly what the problem is. Try disabling all extensions or running FF in safe mode. You also might want to try submitting a FF bug report.

Typing over 140 chars now limited, please revert Jeremy Comer

Jeremy Comer 5 years ago 0
Hey Imgur

I know we've never been able to submit more than 140char comments, but we could type past that limit and then edit the comment to fit. But as of a few hours ago I've noticed that when you hit 140 chars text entry is blocked.

This is really annoying! Being able to write what you thought and then edit it to fit was a really nice feature. It's much easier to edit a sentence when you've written the whole thing (reword a few things, replace "and"s with & etc). But now you have to edit while in the process of trying to write it.

I don't think this is a bug (although you guys do seem to be having some issues right now, comments in gallery profile not loading, comment points not updating), it feels more like an intentional change. So Please, pretty please with a small kitten on top, can you revert the text entry of comments back to how it was.

Thanks

ps (since around the time of the code breaker challenge, I can't leave imgur open in Chromium browser as it start using aroung 40% CPU. Firefox is fine though, but I have other FF issues that I'll report later if I have time).

Trouble signin using the API

shaqman 8 years ago 0
Hi,

I am working on a plugin for windows live writer using .net. The plugin tasks is just to upload images to imgur instead of the default location.

So far, I have successfully created the code to upload using anonymous API's but when I am trying to use the OAuth version, it seems I couldn't sign in.

Here is the error:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><error><message>The consumer_key "xxx" token "yyy" combination does not exist or is not enabled.</message><request>/2/signin</request><method>get</method><format>xml</format><parameters>oauth_consumer_key = xxx, oauth_n</parameters></error>
Currently I am signing in with the access token that have been retrieved and stored. Am I doing this correctly?

Anyone know something that I might be doing wrong?

Thanks.

Regards,
shaqman


Update:
It turns out that I did a logical error. The inputted key was the wrong one. Now I've fixed it and got another error.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><error><message>No username was sent</message><request>/2/signin</request><method>get</method><format>xml</format><parameters>oauth_consumer_key = xxx, oauth_n</parameters></error>

Honestly, I dont understand whoch username should I send. I mean, the point of using OAuth is to delegate the users identity to a key, right? So, I don't really know which username to send or how to retrieve the username.

Changes within Imgur

Dowser 9 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago 0
I don't know what you guys have done but Imgur isn't working as it used too. Images recently uploaded don't appear, even when logged in, but the links still work. There used to be an icon on each picture in your gallery that would allow you to delete a picture but it's gone now. I also have an with a picture being rotated. A picture that needs to be portrait is being uploaded as landscape and I can't work out why?

Why have you made all these changes that seem to be problems. Imgur used to be so easy to use.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago
I'm really sorry about that. The image management page has had some changes to include more functionality. It turns out that some things were made more difficult in the process with the loss of those icons, but I've just added them back in. Hopefully this will solve the problem and make things easier again.

I've not heard of the images not appearing before. Are you sure you're signed in? What browser and operating system are you using?

Hello, I pretty much liked the service and I'm considering to buy pro account, but I have a few questions that I haven't find clearly answered here or in FAQ.

2. Do jpeg images go through compression down to 80 jpeg quality in pro accounts (I mean if originals are LESS than 5MB)? There were some mentions about quality adjustments but I can't see anything like it in my account.
3. Only PayPal? I prefer using my Visa directly.

Create album from existing album.

Cameron Whitehouse 8 years ago updated by Sarah 8 years ago 0
Let's say I've uploaded a lot of images, and I've sorted them into different albums.  I want to be able to open up Album A and select my favorite images that will comprise the new Album B. Right now, if I want to create Album B, I have to look through tiny thumbnails of ALL of my images to find those favorites.

There are a few features that could facilitate this:

1- Duplicate an existing album: Duplicate Album A, then edit the duped album and rename it Album B

2- The ability, when you're viewing an image in an album or wherever, to have an option that allows you to add it to an existing album.

3- The option, when creating Album B, to select which of your existing albums is the source of the images.

Thanks for making Imgur my #1 choice for image hosting.  I hope my suggestions don't seem too picky, but these features would really make organizing your images so much faster and easier.

site optimization

scott parker 8 years ago updated by Sarah 8 years ago 0
Would it be a move in the right direction if you were to add options on the site for a second page included in the imgur site located on the homepage. This page would mimic the choice for choosing between english and french when you arrive at a site, but for imgur the option that I am proposing would be to have a choice to choose between "imguy" and "imgurl" depending on what gender you are when you enter the site. The choice is optional of course for the people who do not want to enter a specific genre of the site but the option will be there. This option on the site is possibly a good idea since it is optional and isnt forced on the site viewer and gives the choice to them. Email me back with thoughts on this idea as I think it could be a good addition to the site.

Reply Issue

James Vellas 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

I loaded a page and started reading comments. I found one to which I wanted to reply and wrote out my response. Upon hitting "save," the page hung. I was able to figure out that this was because the person to whom I was replying had deleted his comment in the meantime. Fair enough, but it turns out that my comment still wound up getting posted. Instead of appearing as a reply, however, it appeared on the top level as if it were a comment submitted directly in response to the picture. Seems like the comment should just be rejected in that case rather than posted to the top level with no context to make sense of it.

Build the community by adding achievements/trophies/ribbons etc. for completing certain tasks

Chris Phillips 8 years ago updated by Sarah 8 years ago 1
I think a great way to build the imgur community would be to add badges or buttons etc. to user profiles, awarded when users complete certain tasks.

I thought of a few examples:
Newbie - uploaded your first image to imgur
Whack-a-Mole - downvoted ten 1 vote posts to 0
Butterfly Effect - Upvoted a 0 vote post to 1, which then went on to get over 1000 upvotes
Curator - Upvoted a hundred images
Philanthropist - Upvoted a hundred comments
Downvote Fairy - Downvoted a hundred comments
Forever Alone - Maintained negative reputation for a week

...the list could go on. Each badge would have a little icon and would be displayed on your user profile once awarded.

Sorry if this is a bit outside of scope for Imgur, and I also realise this would have performance implications on the server farm, but it just occured to me while I was thinking about user rep. I think it would encourage people to get positively involved more and would give other users a quick idea of what you're like from looking at your profile.
