I searched for a few posts and they mentioned tweaking image URLs to let Imgur resize images automatically, and here's the info I've known by far.

4 available suffices, lmsh

l is for large, forcing down to 640x640
m is for medium
s is for small

Can anyone tell me:

  1. What is h for?
  2. What is the forced resolution for h, m and s?

1 Answer 1


Overall 6 thumbnails are available in Imgur: s, b, t, m, l, h.


Thumbnail Suffix Thumbnail Name Thumbnail Size Keeps Image Proportions
s Small Square 90x90 No
b Big Square 160x160 No
t Small Thumbnail 160x160 Yes
m Medium Thumbnail 320x320 Yes
l Large Thumbnail 640x640 Yes
h Huge Thumbnail 1024x1024 Yes

This can be found at the Imgur API documentation page.

  • Nice! Is there a list of possible values for the ?s=[x] appended to the URL to resize it? I always wondered about it. :) Jul 26, 2017 at 6:17
  • @ShadowWizard I didn't find any options like that. I used to know the Imgur API link when I post this feature-request

  • So maybe it's something tailored especially for SE... back in the day imgur were young and small, so it's possible. Jul 26, 2017 at 6:28
