share on reddit problem

the share on reddit links gives an i.imgur link which becomes a self link once it gets to reddit. Could you fix it so that share on reddit link gives imgur linkes instead? 

you mean to say you want imgur share to directly link to image instead of the image's html page? 

that would not be very nice. the service is free and needs page views and clicks on ads for revenue. 

if you want to support imgur, you would link to html pages instead of images directly. 

Maybe i am doing something wrong. When i click the share on reddit icon and post it, it becomes a self link. 


 The default reddit is reddit.com. Something must not be right for you.

I am having the same problem. I use the link that imgur gives me but when I post it to reddit it turns into a self link and doesn't link to the image
