Earlier this year, arising out of a conversation at GUADEC, I wrote a nautilus plugin to upload images to (This is useful because imgur doesn't require an account: you can just install, hit "upload", and off you go.)

Here is a copy of the same thing as a MeeGo RPM, suitable for use on the Lenovo machines distributed at the MeeGo conference. Once this is installed, you can select a .jpg image in the file browser, press the menu button, and choose "Post to imgur" from the resulting menu. Equivalently, you can choose the same option from the Edit menu. The image will be uploaded, and the web browser will pop up at the new URL.  Then you can send it to your friends, embed it in a blog post, or whatever you like.

The source is here.

Things I would like to do with this:
  • Add a similar menu option to the image viewer (which is currently Eye of GNOME).   I haven't looked into how easy it is to extend eog.
  • Add an icon to the launcher which brought up a file chooser.
  • Separate out the uploading part to a DBus service.
  • Do this as a libsharing plugin for Maemo.  I would do this, but I have broken my scratchbox and have no tuits to fix it.
  • Have some app which remembered the images you'd uploaded and helped you find them again.  Especially, if you try to upload the same image twice, it should just take you to the previous copy.
Let me know if you use this, what feedback you have, and whether any of the above would be useful to you.

Oooh, that's most useful. Is there anything like that for Tinypic?

Ah, apparently not. And they change the page every now and then, so scraping is a losing proposition.

imgur lets you register and make all your uploads available at This might be easier/saner than trying to track all past downloads.

It's very small... a couple of bucks, and it doesn't come to me iteadiemmly. That's why I don't do more promoting of it. I hope to have better merchandising options in the future, when we'll have more space and Jack will be able to help me with fulfillment if I'm selling things myself.But I do love knowing that there are MU shirts and mugs out there, even if it doesn't give much direct benefit, so please do whatever you feel is right. :)
