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?

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


Thumbnail  | Thumbnail            | Thumbnail   | Keeps Image
Suffix     | Name                 | Size        | 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
