Anyone use Imagur??

I am really liking the Imagur photo sharing service so far...except one thing.

I cannot figure out how to post different sized pics on sites like this on the mobile app. When Im using it on the outer it gives me the option of size and then I can copy that link to use it to post. On the app not so much, it uses the original size that I upload ( which is huge ).

Thoughts??

I use Imgur- all my resizing is done before I upload in Lightroom.

I always resize before uploading pics to the web. If I want to keep the larger size, I change the names slightly and upload them as well.

BTW if you want a fast way to resize and rename a lot of images all at once, check out Irfanview. It's a very lightweight, free, fast, and easy to use tool that does batch processing on many images.

I think the problem here is he's taking pics with a phone, and the app uploads the full-size image by default.

See if there's a way to set the app to upload a smaller size?

Failing that, you might find another camera app that allows you to set the smaller size for pics, then you can use that for pics you want to upload?

I second the Irfanview recommendation. Been using it for years. Makes resizing images to fit on this site a breeze.

I got a free app for my iPhone that resizes as well. It's called Resizer. (imagine that)

Same basic idea - it leaves the original if you want to keep it and saves a new (smaller) copy I can upload or share or whatever.

You can just add a letter at the end of the file name to change the displayed size without actually resizing the image. I usually just add an "l" which means "large thumbnail". This fits nicely on a message board.

m = medium
l = large

Lately been using https://postimages.org/ which has options for resizing during upload and automatically generates thumbnails. When snagging the share link you can one click choose the link for: full size, thumbnail, using board tags, using plain html, etc.

It's also got hooks for newer board software so forums can just plug it in as a replacement for image uploading/attachments.

Exactly what I needed!!! Thanks Des!!!

Id rather not do the extra step of resizing. I have been using irfanview for many many years as well. However, these days quick and simple is what Im all about. The desktop version of Imagur does the resizing automatically which is perfect. But now Des has given me the mobile solution!!!
