support status-completed This has been fixed. Might be me missing something but how do I add an image via link to upload to imgur? There used to be an option for that but I can't tell anymore.

feature-request When on the insert hyperlink/image tab you should be able to swap to a different tab if wanted, currently you have to cancel and then select another tab.

feature-request The orange highlight colour looks out of place on all sites which use another primary colour. This should adapt to the individual sites. For example on TeX.SE the terrible colour clash could be avoided by using rgb(191, 76, 81) to highlight the icons. For all who are also tired of waiting for this bug to be fixed, a userscript for self-...

It appears that S3 has fallen over in AWS for the US-EAST1. Ironically I can't include a screenshot of the dashboard in this post, but I promise I have one. You can see the AWS status dashboard here: https://status.aws.amazon.com/ Imgur uploads should return successfully once that issue has settled. Apologies for the trouble, but we're not in a position to ...

It does have to do with the size of the file. Imgur chokes on some files larger than 2MB, and the error it returns uses frames. Thus the error from the Stack Exchange code. See: "For security reasons, framing is not allowed; click OK to remove the frames." on Imgur upload

feature-request status-declined How about converting arrow pointer to hand pointer in the drag and drop area in new design also? In the old design, when pointer hover around the area of drag and drop, pointer arrow used to get converted into hand: In new design pointer arrow remains as it is. Besides due to dim/grey color of drag and drop area and smaller ...

feature-request Could you adjust this so that clicking the body of your post makes the recently opened menu close? Currently, it's just disabled. Oddly, I find myself dismissing an insert link or insert image prompt quite often (just how I work, I often think I should add a link or image, click add link, go to lookup a link, find it doesn't fit well, ...

Possible bug Normally, when you "Discard" a saved draft, it clears the answer text. However, when you "Discard" a saved draft when the inline image uploader (or hyperlink box) is open and then "Cancel" the image uploader, the discarded answer text reappears. The "draft" is still discarded in both cases, except that closing the image uploader repopulates ...

A few days ago (February 2011), a new image upload is being tested on Meta, adding support for paste and drag-and-drop: However, this does not support direct paste or drag-and-drop into the edit page; one first needs to click the "Image" button (Ctrl+G) to show the upload dialog. In June 2015, this new dialog was implemented:

status-completed Something that will be awesome for me is pressing CTRL+V inside the editor while there is an image in the clipboard, and that would automagically open the uploader and paste the image in there. This will save me so many clicks... :)

bug status-completed The clickable area is smaller than the grey box: Bit of a small issue, but in my first try in using it I clicked too far to the edge, and nothing happened.


24

If the image is above the max size (current 2 MiB), automatically resize (or change compression) to the largest image possible, or close to it.


21

We haven't implemented an overlay (the community was more divided on this), but from now on, the image uploader automatically wraps images in a link to themselves, which looks like this and should make your life easier: [![enter image description here][1]][1] Balpha is to thank for this change.

I usually do all my post-processing in GIMP, so I have a single request for this: Don't force features upon me. Don't turn our image uploader into a ten-step thing like Gravatar's, where you upload your image then get to rotate it, then crop it, then do whatever else. It should take me fewer than five clicks to upload an image, and that includes selecting ...

support On my iPhone, when I click the 'Insert hyperlink' button, I see the screen scrolling a bit, but in the end, the place where I want to type something is not visible (see below). Sometimes it's worse, and the entire Body text area is hidden behind the keyboard. I'd expect the 'https://' textbox and the buttons to scroll into view immediately. Here is ...

Thanks for the reports here! Imgur has just informed us this is resolved. An anti-spam mechanism they use was causing a DNS timeout on image uploads, adding almost exactly 10 seconds of latency to every upload. You should find all image uploads speedy once again across the network. Additionally, in finding this they've setup additional monitoring and ...

It's still possible, but it's not easy to discover. After clicking the image upload button, you can paste an URL with Ctrl+V: It then proceeds with uploading to imgur as before.

feature-request status-deferred Note that this issue has been duplicated in a more traditional bug report and the process is being discussed in this question. The editor in the Edit Profile & Settings Edit Tag Info are still using the old UI for the "Image" and "Hyperlink" controls. Can be the recent UI changes are applied in those editors ...

I think this is a great idea. With the current implementation, this tool, which is the most convenient way to add images to posts, leads to a default behavior of not including an alt-text, which is an important element for readers who are visually impaired as well as for search-ability. Once the user has finished using the tool, the image is added, and the ...

bug I think there is a bug for uploading images when editing existing answers. It's not possible to add an image by clicking on the image background area. When I do this, a file open dialog opens. I can select an image. But then nothing happens. It works fine for new answers, but not for editing existing ones. I can upload new images to existing answers ...

We recently made a change so that the image uploaded automatically links the image too, so that users can easily click on the image to see the larger version of it due to it being very common to upload larger images that then get resized down in the post. You're just seeing two syntaxes getting mixed together: the image syntax inside the link syntax,

feature-request status-deferred How about fixing the real issue with image uploading that I see all the time on SE sites where users are not technically savvy? The size limit of 2 MB is a barrier to asking questions. Most people use cell phones to take pictures and many cannot figure out how to reduce the resolution so the picture will not exceed the size ...

This is a good idea. I'd like to see it on the site, without having to right-click, open in new tab or so. Just a click on the image and a nice fancybox (or similar) opens up: It could look like lightbox or fancybox. It's really annoying to have images scaled down so that they aren't well readable anymore, and having to right-click, copy image URL, open ...

bug status-completed The link popup input needs to auto-focus when opening! Take the typical workflow: type some text highlight the text hit Ctrl + L type or paste a link hit Enter This used to work previously. It does not anymore, since the link input field is not focused after step 3. It requires an additional step to click the box to focus it. At ...

Stack Exchange uses imgur for uploading and hosting the images. Imgur will strip the EXIF data once the image is uploaded to their server. Yes, GPS coordinates will also be removed as it relates to your identity. So, no worry of GPS coordinates of your house going online. Why does imgur strips the EXIF data? Here is a reply from imgur userecho question ...

Disabling a Norton extension for Chrome (Norton Security Toolbar 2017.0.0.8) resolved the issue.

I am pretty sure the reason is historical limit, that isn't relevant anymore. Stack Exchange sends the images to imgur via their API, using a special premium account that was made many years ago, back in Jeff days. Back then imgur was still young, and most likely 2mb per image via the API was their soft limit. As far as I could see, these days the API ...

That TenForums site is password protected and/or is restricting image linking so only TenForum pages can show images. This has nothing to do with JPEG sizing or formatting. If the URL to the image is not accessible outside of TenForums it can’t be added here. You can’t add that picture to Stack Exchange — or honestly anywhere — since the TenForums site is ...

How did this happen? Pictures are uploaded to a special imgur repo (for hosting SE's images) that works independently of any appearance of the image in a post. That's why the uploaded picture will be still accessible. I even use that as a feature, if I want to post images in a chat room or comments for example: I am going to an arbitrary post and edit it, ...
