    Buna.Cand deschid MyImgur 3.94, imi solicita sa actualizez.Ok. … insa cand doresc sa actualizez ,imi apare un mesaj:”Asigurati-va ca aveti încredere în MyImgur395_2.exe înainte de a-l deschide Microsoft, Defender SmartScreen nu a putut verifica daca acest fisier este sigur, deoarece nu este descarcat frecvent. Asigurati-va ca aveti încredere în fisierul pe care îl descarcati sau în sursa sa înainte de a-l deschide.” si mesajul:”MyImgur395_2.exe nu este descarcat frecvent. Asigurati-va ca aveti incredere in MyImgur395_2.exe inainte a-l descarca…”Cum pot sa fac totusi actualizarea… Multumesc.

    Where the heck is the button for where to update?

    On this page, I’m supposed to update. I imagine I don’t click the shady DOWNLOAD NOW ones. So, what do I click?

    In the Uploads screen, how do I get the original uploaded filename to appear in the filename column? If I drag-drop, filename is blank. If I do select-files, filename shows as [capture].

    Once we figure out that issue, is there a way to export the upload history data to csv? I need at least the filename and the URL data. Current copy-to-clipboard option only copies the URL. I basically need a mapping of the original filename with the URL.

      This will be fixed in the next update + that option to copy all data.

    Hello there. I just downloaded the latest version for the first time. I tried to login to my Imgur account and I am getting the following
    error “Too Many Requests”
    request “/oauth2/authorize”
    method “POST”
    success false
    status 429

    Please advice. Thank you

    recently I migrated to Win10 and… MyImgur after start freezes Win10 for maybe 2-3 minutes… after that everything is ok. I don’t want to look for something new to take screenshots, I’ve been using your software for years. Any advice?

    How can I download? It says error 403

  9. why
    February 23rd, 2021 at 05:21 | #16

    admin :
    Sounds like you are using Windows XP, the installer only works from Vista+. I think the portable version also won’t upload to Imgur due to incompatible OpenSSL libraries.

    then the installer definitely incompatible on vista since i’m using vista 32bit & the installer just won’t work after multiple retry/download (btw, the portable version uploader does work for me since i’m not using xp)…

    • admin
      February 23rd, 2021 at 10:24 | #17

      Oh I will check then. I’m using InnoSetup for the installer, I recall an issue with one of their updates causing problems for Vista.. I think. Can you hop on my discord? it’s easier there to follow-up.

    • admin
      February 23rd, 2021 at 10:31 | #18

      ok here’s the issue: https://jrsoftware.org/isdl.php

      Change in default behavior: Starting with Inno Setup 6.1 the [Setup] section directive MinVersion defaults to 6.1sp1, so by default Setup will not run on Windows Vista or on versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 which have not been updated. Setting MinVersion to 6.0 to allow Setup to run on Windows Vista is supported but not recommended: Windows Vista doesn’t support some of Setup’s security measures against potential DLL preloading attacks so these have to be removed by the compiler if MinVersion is below 6.1 making your installer less secure on all versions of Windows.

  10. why
    February 20th, 2021 at 15:20 | #19

    MyImgur 3.94_2 installer doesn’t work for me, i double click the exe file to install, only popup a notification window saying “Not a Valid Win32 Application”. On the positive side, the portable version work (i copy & paste the 2 exe & 2 dll files to the C:\Program Files\MyImgur manually after exacting the files with my 7zip)…

    Recently I noticed MyImgur stopped working on an old WinXP machine.
    On Win7/10 machines it works fine. Any suggestions? TIA

    • admin
      February 6th, 2021 at 11:17 | #22

      The installer is no longer compatible with Win XP, however you can still use the portable version for purely screenshotting, as the OpenSSL libraries are not compatible with XP either anymore.

    First… thanks a lot for this software, is amazing. But I feel is lacking of two features I’d love to be implemented (one, I know many will use and the other might vary).

    I’ve been using the app as de facto sceenshot utility and works great but sometimes I need to upload the image, not always the case varies. An option to have the last captured image uploaded will be so useful. And if possible give this a shortcut.

    I use the portable version for a couple of reasons, I cannot have registered the DLL but I’d love that functionality. Is there any hidden switch to upload via command line? In this fashion I can make a .lnk in the SendTo or expand the usage with scripting.

    MyImgur.exe /portable /exitafterupload img.(gif|jpg|png)

    Also, the /portable switch might be inferred (if settings.xml exists in .exe folder). Anyway hope if at very least the first can be done. Thanks again for your time and efforts.

    November 17th, 2020 at 03:20 | #27

    Love the product, but I’d like to request an additional option (or have someone inform me if it is already available and I’m missing it). I typically upload images in sets between 5-10 images at a time. I would love to use the “Copy link to clipboard after upload” option, but I need it to copy the links of all the images that were just uploaded, not just that last image uploaded. Is this possible?

    • admin
      November 17th, 2020 at 07:11 | #28

      Click on “Uploads”, from there you can select the set, right-click > Copy Selected URLs

    Randomly stops working in Windows 10. I’ve even disabled UAC completely with a reg file, still no joy. Was working yesterday but even after rebooting, reminding, reinstalling the app it just does not do anything when I try to capture an image. Maybe Wndows 10 lates update have completely borked this program?

    May 18th, 2018 at 03:20 | #30


    Everytime I open MyImgur 3.86 it gives me the notice to upgrade: YES? or NO ?

    I’ve never been able to upgrade it for months!! Why ? Can’t figure it out. I click at top of your link:


    at the download for the 3.93 but NOTHING ever happens.

    I love your App. !!! But either help me with downloading the upgrade or please tell me how can I permanently opt for No? and NOT get the upgrade notification every time !

    Maybe i should remove my present one and delete it? then download the new 3.93?

    Suggestions please ?

    FYI: I’m using Windows 7 with Chrome as browser.

    Thank you kindly !

    I love MyImgur, a huge time saver. A request for the future. Would it be possible to add (in Upload Settings) the ability to input a specific size? Currently, it has original and some fixed width options. I’d love to be able to downsize the images and maintain the aspect ratio. Thanks again!

    c’est la première fois depuis des années : qui peut me guider soit pour dépanner soit pour m’indiquer un captureur/hébergeur d’images moins problématique que My Imgur ????

    Do you plan on adding a desktop capture feature? I find it to be really useful, if not that’s okay!

    I really like this program 🙂 thanks for letting us all enjoy it!

  24. admin

    I will add an option for that.

    I mean automatic copy after image being uploaded. Lately direct links seems to be broken for some people, that’s why I’m asking.

    Hello! Is it possible to copy not direct link, but imgur link? (not http://i.imgur.com/xxxxxx.jpg but http://imgur.com/xxxxxx)

    • admin
      June 18th, 2017 at 23:09 | #45

      yes, in the copy menu, or do you mean the automatic copy?

    May 10th, 2017 at 02:28 | #46

    I’m trying to have the screenshot directly on my clipboard so that I just press the capture key and I can paste the screenshot directly but it doesn’t work, every time I have to click “copy image” if I want to paste the image.

      May 10th, 2017 at 03:58 | #47

      It happens sometimes, restarting the app fixes it.

    Hi, i’m trying to login to imgur from the myimgur app but the redirection points me to https://api.imgur.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=&response_type=pin&state=auth and it says “Woah there!
    The information you sent wasn’t quite correct. Please return to the place that sent you to this page and try again.”.

    So i can’t do anything now with myimgur. Any ideas? I have the latest version.

      November 11th, 2016 at 13:43 | #52

      works fine for me, maybe a temporal issue?

  32. admin
    October 16th, 2016 at 00:27 | #53

    Maybe for next version 4.0, but that means making an image viewer/browser, it’s a lot of work.

    October 16th, 2016 at 00:22 | #54

    I am a little weird but I don’t have a smartphone. There is no way to implement that feature in Myimgur?

    October 12th, 2016 at 02:56 | #55

    All of that is about sorting images inside of album.

    • admin
      October 12th, 2016 at 03:06 | #56

      I guess the only way now is through external apps. Have you checked opengur for Android?

  35. Arno
    October 12th, 2016 at 02:52 | #57

    Is it in “Rearrange images”? I don’t see it there anymore and I see reddit users complaining about the same last week: https://www.reddit.com/r/civbattleroyale/comments/56lmaq/anyone_here_know_of_any_imgur_alternatives_for/
    Also whole interface has changed for me, i.e. I have only these options: http://i.imgur.com/b4bZmPB.jpg and only renaming the album and button “Done rearranging”, with abilities to only manually drag images on screen. No more sorting. That’s why I actually asked.

    • admin
      October 12th, 2016 at 03:05 | #58

      Ahh you meant inside albums. There is nothing in the API to sort album images.

    Lately Imgur removes all the settings, last month we’ve lost “Sort by” menu in “Rearrange images” page. Is it possible for you to recreate sorting by filename, date of uploading ascending/descending right in MyImgur?

    Sorry for a late reply, yes, I’m on 3.86, also happened on previous version though. Resolution is 1920×1080. Strange thing is, it only happens on specific windows, image properties is one of them.

      Can you reproduce the error each time?

  44. admin
    September 18th, 2016 at 23:05 | #69

    Are you using 3.86? what’s your screen size/resolution/dpi setting?

  45. Denny
    September 18th, 2016 at 21:35 | #70

    I’m using the app for a while now, and when using ‘Capture Active window’ the screenshot is slightly larger than the window itself. For example: http://i.imgur.com/ygN9z5Z.png, is this by design or a bug? On some windows it doesn’t happen

  46. admin
    September 18th, 2016 at 04:11 | #71

    Check the forum again, updated the info to use Imgur’s API instead with your own App keys.

    September 17th, 2016 at 23:52 | #72

    Thanks again, I would never have found that!

    Working good so far, exactly what I wanted – marquee select, wait, click the Win 10 notification to get the imgur link.

    Awesome 🙂
