You guys should consider making a downloadable app for your desktop. Basically create a DOPBOX like app where you can place image files and directly upload them to your albums.

I don't know how this would work or the technical hoops you would have to jump through to make this happen but it might be something you should keep on the back burner and think about.


Basically just a desktop app that you can directly drag image files into and they get sent to your album onto Imgur. 


You can even have it send back direct links for posting after you have uploaded an image file.

Just going to state the facts here. Imgur has moved from being an image hosting service to an image sharing service. It is not aiming to take on Flickr or Picasa for personal photo storage. It has become a social platform focused on image sharing. We have seen few improvements for members using it as it as an image storage platform for a long time now. The entire development process is focused on the social component of the service.


I would however recommend an app named ShareX here. It has a feature named Watch Folder. You can set it to automatically upload any new photo added to specific folders to your Imgur account. It’s not perfect but it works for me. Cheers!
