Full resolution -view is too many clicks away in embedded galleries

Juhana Pietari Lehtiniemi fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 1

Currently you have to click the settings-tab in the top-corner. It should be only one click to view a bigger version of the image. Like as simple as clicking the image itself.

Also, I think the options should be "View bigger image" (not full resolution) and DOWNLOAD full resolution. This would make much more sense.

Cannot view uploaded images without visiting front page first

banjo2E fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 6 anys 3
Every time I visit the site I have to go to the front page in order to access my "all uploaded images" view. Going directly to http://username.imgur.com/all/ before visiting the front page that day results in a "not logged in" message, no matter what.

 
This effectively renders the "remember me" checkbox mostly worthless, since I have to either re-enter my login info or navigate away from the page, then come back, in order to do anything.

Error 403 on image download

Timm Weber fa 7 anys 0
I've written a simple imgur downloader in Java which lets you paste some links to images/albums and it'll download them for you. The problem is that recently it will only produce 403 errors when connecting to the download links altough they are working fine, if accessed with a browser. Is there any reason for this or is it just a bug or something?

Whatever happened to your minimalist site?

Flutter shy fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 0

You were great Imgur, you're why I never went back to other hosting sites with annoying ads or "HOTTEST PICTURE" 'feature' nobody cares about. I had the hardest of times trying to reach the "Feedback" link because the damn site keeps loading pictures and pictures, when all I want to do is upload 1 single file.  I understand you need traffic to pay the server and the domain and stuff, but you didn't have to convert it into a copy-cat of other sites, and your users come mostly from reddit! Honestly, isn't that enough traffic?


Please go back to the "Simple Image Uploader".

Hello.

I can see that you are resizing 90x90 thumbnail to 135x135 box. That is the reason it looks so bad. Please fix it. Either generate bigger image or make that thumbnail smaller. But don't stretch this small image to fill bigger box.

Avoid visually ambiguous characters in URL

Michael Clark fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 0
I appreciate that you need to have case sensitive URLs, else URLs would already be much longer, but when generating a URL for an image, can you add a filter to reject URLs that have visually ambiguous characters? (No capital 'I's or lowercase 'L', No capital 'O's or number 0, etc) I know most in most cases users link, but hand copying happens often enough that it becomes a major annoyance.

Floating Done Button?

How about a floating "Done" button for selecting multiple images. It's a nice addition having the page extend to fit more thumbs per page.. but when you are selecting 2-4 at a time, when you get to the bottom, it'd be nice to not have to scroll back up to click the Done each time.

hashtags

Matt Thompson fa 7 anys 0
I'm surprised that Imgur's gallery comment feature does not support hashtags. It would be a great way to link people to other pictures. You could even incorporate the hashtags into the voting system. Let's say I put #imguraffe on a picture of a giraffe with a green hat, and someone else puts #imguraffe on a different picture of a giraffe with a monocle and tophat. Someone clicks... c licks (I don't like the way your font makes "cl" look like a "d") either hashtag and sees a similar picture... they could upvote the comment(s) with the hashtags. Clicking on a hashtag link could bring up search results listing from the highest voted hashtag comment to the lowest. Just a thought.

Title changing issues

Garrick Madden fa 8 anys updated by Sarah fa 8 anys 0
I tried to change an image title, but it only changes locally...if I log out it reverts to the old title, as if I never actually changed the title. I have tried numerous times, including just leaving the field blank, but even if it appears to work, as soon as I log out and view my picture or view it in another browser, the old title is still there. I've also deleted all my cookies and such, but I'm quite positive this isn't on my end.

Oh, it seems the title isn't updated on the original image for some reason, like I clicked on the embed codes, and the new title then appeared, but when I went back to the image, old title was there. (i.e. the "?tags" version appears correctly, but normal does not)

Hmm, may have to do with an old deleted reddit post, where I used the same image code. Well it seems I did find a bug.

Answer
Sarah fa 8 anys
It looks like your css may not be loading. Try to disable extensions or ad block, or try it on another browser to see if you get the same problem. 
Answer
I worked hard on making them look exactly the same, but the way the upload and process the image is entirely different.

The flash version works exactly the same across all platforms and browsers -- it even works in IE6. The HTML version will look the same as the Flash one on a modern browser, but you'll see the difference if you visit it in IE7-8.

The Flash version also processes the image before it's uploaded, so that it actually ends up uploading about half the data (for larger images), thus making them upload a lot faster. For the HTML version, it needs to upload the entire thing first, and then process it on the server side.

Overall, the Flash version provides a more standard way of uploading that works for everything. It's also way faster for larger images.

In time, the HTML version will be the default, and the Flash will be the backup (once I figure out how to do the client side processing in canvases and JS). However, right now, browser support for new HTML5 features just isn't there yet. Way too many people visit the site on outdated browsers, and I think it's important to provide the same experience across all browsers, no matter the version.

A public gallery of images that anyone can use to respond on Reddit.

Syner Genetics fa 7 anys 0
I use Reddit. I like to use a image as a quite response. Instead of creating an album of images, that I know already exist on Imgur is their a way to create a public Reddit response album than anyone can link too? 

Example in Reddit if I type in /r/ a list of subreddits appear.

My idea for imgur if I type in imgur.com/public_response/*.* depending what I type next a list of public available response images appear, just the names, not the image itself.

Instead of having people create albums that hold the same images have a public album that hold only 1 image that 100's of people can link too.

Of course I would also include a small adverting icon to generate some revenue.

Image preview out of order

K B fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 0

 The order of the image preview in the upper right doesn't seem to have anything to do with the Next and Prev buttons anymore. It's all over the place, going backwards or skipping.

Example: I go to Imgur.com, preview shows that fireflies picture is first. I click on it, and it shows me fireflies. I click next, and it shows me the same fireflies picture again, but reorders the preview so that fireflies is the last TWO pictures, and the next picture is now the third last preview, etc. going backwards.
I click Next, and it goes backwards to the roller coaster picture that was second in the original gallery order. I keep clicking Next going backwards towards the "first" picture in the preview, which is the pancakes picture, but it skips it and then completely changes the order with new pictures. If I then click Prev it changes the order again, etc etc..

Politics/Religion on Imgur

ScientistSalarian fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 1

Some people vehemently dislike seeing any posts on politics or religion in the gallery.  I for one don't mind, and even enjoy getting into nice discussions.  However, no one likes to wade through the endless "Why is this on imgur?!"  & "I thought we said no politics on imgur" comments...


So one Idea I had that might make things a little better for everyone involved would be an toggle-able account setting that hides pics in the gallery that were from r/politics, r/atheism, and essentially all the political and religious boards of reddit.  I know it won't hide 100% of the this content from people who do not enjoy it, but it would eliminate the vast majority of it having to be seen by people who don't want to see it. 


So the people who don't like politics don't have to see it, and the people who do don't have to read the endless complaints.  I'm not sure how hard this would be to implement, but its just a quick idea I had.

IP Banning users with multiple accounts

Miss Rae fa 7 anys updated by salahudin fa 4 anys 1

Lately the User Submitted forum and been more r/gonewild than anything else. I've noticed in the last few weeks that people are creating new accounts to spam the gallery with NSFW and other extremely graphic content. In just the past week I've seen nude images of 3 women get posted by their ex-boyfriends, I've seen a 40-something year old woman post a "masturbation" album with pictures including closeups of her "lady bits", and I've seen another user upload images of extremely disturbing bestiality porn. People are doing this for one reason: They can create throwaway accounts to spam the gallery then go back to their main account and don't have to worry about facing any consequences for their actions.


In my opinion, people who do things like this should be IP banned to keep them from further disrupting the community with these types of images.

Add the ability to turn OFF arrow key navigation in album layouts.

Robertson2 fa 7 anys updated by Sarah fa 7 anys 0

In Firefox 14, W7, when I press one of my arrow keys in an album layout, I'm taken to the next image. This isn't a browser bug (such as caret browsing being turned on) because the page actually "animates" down to the next image.

On a standard 1366x768 laptop, this means I cannot read any of the image captions and is incredibly frustrating.


Pressing the up or down keys results in the entire page going to the top or bottom, as if I'd pressed Home or End, respectively.

When downloading albums, prefix filenames with their index in the album

kane_t fa 7 anys 0
Currently, when downloading an album, images are included in the archive as though they were all individual files.  Due to imgur's naming scheme, the filenames are effectively random, so whatever ordering they had in the album is lost.

Sometimes this isn't a problem, but often albums are ordered in a particular way intentionally.  It would make more sense to prefix filenames with their index in the album when downloading them as an album, ie., "1 - (imgur filename).png," "2 - (imgur filename).png," and so on.  This preserves the album ordering when sorting these files by filename, while also preserving the imgur filename so the individual files can be looked up later.
