I'd like Screenshot>Host_on_imgur to upload to my imgur account (not just general imgur site)

Post by pepperminty » Sat Mar 25, 2017 4:59 pm

Is there a way to get the Screenshot>Host_onImgur to upload to my imgur account, and not just to the general imgur image bank?

Hi "pepperminty", & Anyone Else Interested in this,

1.) As user "Cosmo" suggested, try "shutter" print screen tool. Install "Shutter" and "postr" (flickr uploader) from the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM). There are also PPA's to keep "shutter" updated or to use newer testing and development versions.

FYI: With "postr" (flickr uploader) installed, you can run it separately from the menu, or from most image editor, or screen capture programs, and your file managers, etc...

Downloads and PPA's

Upload to Flickr

2.) Take Screenshots And Upload To Imgur With "Imgur-Screenshot"
(Optional: Nautilus, Nemo And Caja Imgur Upload Scripts)

"Imgur-Screenshot" Is a Nifty Screengrab and Upload Tool for Linux

Shutter is a program. It can be used instead of using the build in printscreen function. Both work quite independently from each other.

Shutter also just uploads anonymously to imgur

Like Xfce's default PrintScreen program, Shutter uploads anonymously only to imgur.

Hi "pepperminty",

If you read the links I provided, you can select to upload using Flickr Upload (postr) from within Shutter or other applications, and it works, because I tested it.

But I don't want to upload to Flickr, whether anonymously or into my Flickr account. The thing I like with uploading to my imgur account is that I'm still anonymous when I share my images/photos. Not even my imgur username is published. But with flickr, if you share a pic, your other pics and albums (the public ones) are visible, and your username too is visible.

Hi "pepperminty",

I understand now about how you feel regarding flicker ...

1.) Why not just use the email option of Imgur where you can email the images to your account? This can be done through screen capture programs, file managers, image editors, etc...
To upload images via email you must first activate an email address. To activate an email address submit a new email address below. You will receive an activation link at the email address you just submitted. Once you click on the link you can send images to upload@imgur.com as attachments. These images will get uploaded to your account and will be visible on your images page. Zip, rar, and plain images are accepted.

2.) What about the option #2 "Imgur-Screenshot". It is a little bit of a pain to setup, I used the webup8 instructions, but it works because I tested that as well. Note: download v1.7.3 of the script.

Hope this helps ...

Hi "pepperminty",

While helping other Linux Mint members, I came across these articles. One of which claims they have a plugin module for the "Shutter" screen capture application to upload to "imgur". Supposedly, you download the "imgur.pm" file and copy it into the Shutter's plugin folder and restart Shutter, and your good to go. I have not yet tried this. You might have to install (reinstall) the Shutter package using the latest revision.

this is where I found the information:
Bug #1565048 “imgur upload plugin no longer works due to now uns...”

My fix allows Imgur Guest to work again, but also adds Imgur OAuth:

Xfce's screenshot tool manages to properly handle the user's credentials for ZimageZ. But I do not know if that hosting site offers what you are looking for as far as your (pseudo-)anonymity goes.

Is there a way to hack the Screenshot>Host_on_imgur code, to make it upload to my imgur account?
