Associating uploads with user accounts

Apr 18, 2010 at 10:37 PM

I love Imgurl for two primary reasons. [1] When I stay logged in to my Imgurl account, everything I upload via the webpage is easily retrievable should I ever need to reference it in the future or share the link with someone else. That's because Imgurl displays a handy thumbnail gallery view of my complete upload history. [2] The key selling point for me is that I can see this upload history when logged in to my account at the website, but nobody else can see it. Furthermore, the images themselves can't be backtracked to my account, since my username neither appears on the pages for the individual images or anywhere within the URL structure. This all ensures that my privacy is respected.

That being said, would it be possible to add to the feature set of your upload tool the ability to associate uploaded images to a given Imgurl user account?

If I were to continue using your app in its current state, I would have to begrudgingly sacrifice item [1] above.

Without such a feature I can't embrace this app completely.

With the new updates to the Imgur API, uploading directly to a user's account is now possible, however it requires me learning how to implement oAuth.

I'm certainly looking into it and will post an update if I incorporate the new changes.

Well, for starters just uploaded a new release that includes persistence of your last used export method :-)
