Not possible to upload images by URL that are from Amazon's S3

Thor K.H. 8 years ago • updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago 5
Images from Amazon S3 have a special authentication/time key behind the URL to the image that makes imgur "not support" the filetype. Is there a way to go around that? Maybe by ignoring the HTTP GET?

I'd be happy to look into this. Could you please provide me with an S3 URL for testing?

EDIT: It's been fixed.
No, thank _you_ for awesome imgur. :)

The link that I am talking about had expired when you looked at it, but not when I gave it to Mr. imgur. None of the ones I've been trying to pull had expired either, as the amount of time you have before it expires is significant/based on views (?).

If that had been the case though, I'd still get the same message because imgur didn't (but does not) accept the URL in the first place. Thanks for the input though!
