    AH. nvm. I was going to post that the capture isn’t working, but I finally found the setting… It’s not very obvious where the setting is for Upload only, Capture only, and both.

    This is an epic app! Thanks 😀

    There are two things on my wishlist:
    1) Play sound when upload is done. (indicating success or failure)
    2) Allow app to stay minimized to system tray during and after upload.

    Then it would beat hyperdesktop for my use case 🙂

    I found some issues on the x64 installable version:
    -The tray icon says “TinyPic Uploader”.
    -No matter the settings, some images are uploaded as jpg instead of png.
    -Some images get this JPEG error #53 http://i.imgur.com/ebLYO12.png and the queue stops and have to restart the app and add again the files.
    -Drag and Drop doesn’t work.
    -Doesn’t accept GIFs, get JPEG error #53 again.

    I hope you can find the way to solve those issues, and keep working on it.

      Drag and drop doesnt work. shows error cursor on hover.

    Great app! Love it!

    One little bug I’ve found, it may just be Windows 8, is that every time I start the app, I have to go in to the hot keys and either uncheck and re-check the boxes for the hot keys or click the assignment button and click okay before hot keys work again.

    One little thing that bugs me as well is that when I upload an image (Using hot keys to take screen capture) is that the application window gets added back to my taskbar and I have to minimize to tray again.

    Keep up the good work! 😀

    Maybe Imgur changed something.

        Hmm… It happened every single time for 2 whole days (verified multiple times, with both 32 and 64 bit portable versions). Now I don’t get that error anymore. So strange. Good thing I made that screenshot.
        Thank you for your answer and sorry for wasting your time! I’ll post again if it comes back.

    Sup man. Great app.

    Just this little thing bothering me: I can’t make it to start running when the computer starts and can’t disable the option “close app after upload”.

      Hi, thanks for the report. I knew about the auto-start not saving but kinda forgot to fix it on last patch, it’ll be fixed for sure next update; ill check the other setting as well.

    November 16th, 2012 at 22:16 | #16

    Ah, ignore my last comment. It was due to Imgur service being out of tune with it’s servers.

    November 16th, 2012 at 22:10 | #17

    By the looks of it I can’t log in to your software because I’m am sent to the imgur app authorisation page and it doesn’t come with a token so it says the app doesn’t exist.

    First of all, thanks for this amazing app!

    Now, I have a suggestion to do…

    When I set a hotkey for capture area, later when I uset, I’ve no way to cancel it, making a capture is the only way to cancel it. I noted this because I was using Hyperdesktop until yesterday, and there you can cancel it with Esc button.

    Sorry for my bad english, I’m from Argentina.

    • admin
      November 11th, 2012 at 06:34 | #19

      You can right-click to cancel if ESC doesn’t work.

  13. admin
    November 5th, 2012 at 12:54 | #20

    I will remove that option in the next update. It was there very long ago for performance reasons when the cropping feature was much slower.

  14. Arielle
    November 5th, 2012 at 12:41 | #21

    Yes, 3.1. I see I had the “Use only Primary Monitor” option checked. After removing the checkmark it allowed me to screenshot from the secondary monitor however when the option is checked it still takes a screenshot of the secondary monitor even though the primary one has the shading over it. I am running Windows 7.

  15. Arielle
    November 5th, 2012 at 03:09 | #22

    When i try to take a screenshot it only allows me to select the primary monitor but takes a screenshot of the secondary monitor. Is there a setting for that or is that a limitation of the app?

    • admin
      November 5th, 2012 at 06:39 | #23

      No, it should work fine with multiple monitors, I have 3 myself and it’s working correctly. Are you running the latest version 3.1?

    Trying this out… but when I hit Login, it takes me to a blank browser window with an address that begins https://api.imgur.com/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=…… Again, the browser window itself is blank.

    It does not take me to a screen like the one shown in the program in which Imgur asks for my authorization.

      It seems there’s an issue with imgur at the moment, try again after a bit.

    I would like to suggest a “Close to Tray” option in the Settings – this would allow users that want to keep the program open to send it to the tray if the hit the Close button (just like the “Minimize to Tray” option). I have a habit of hitting the close button and expecting it to go to the tray.

    It’d be nice to be able to quickly edit screenshots like in hyperdesktop, also, an option to not display the MyImgur windows every time you do a screenshot.

    great app to optimizing work.

    i have a trouble to resizing the main windows of your prog.
    i installed on vista 64 with the MyImgur31 x64.exe self install version.
    here is sreenshoot of main windows prog : http://i.imgur.com/08Y13.png
    i cant resizing with mouse triggering, i cant resizing by option menu windows ….

    in option panel i can see the default size is 428*306 but i cant change it.
    i try to edit the settings.xml to test without result.

    do u know a way to do resizing ?

    • admin
      July 16th, 2012 at 11:15 | #43

      Hi, the interface is designed like that to not allow resizing. Your problem is you have higher non-default DPI so the controls etc are out of place, you can fix it in control panel/Display, set DPI back to normal “Smaller – 100% (default)” (96 dpi).

    Why is it that I can no longer drag images into the window to have them upload?

    • admin
      July 11th, 2012 at 07:33 | #51

      That can happen if you run the program as admin (like when the installer launches it). Restarting the program will fix it.

    Is there any way to change the hotkeys?
    That’s what I like at Hyperdesktop, it’s really easy to use but it doesn’t upload the pictures to my account.

    I’d love to see the hotkey funtion here so I can delete Hyperdesktop 😉

    • admin
      July 9th, 2012 at 19:01 | #54

      Been wanting to add hot-keys for a very long time way back since the older 1.x versions, I keep postponing it 😀 but you should expect it soon, probably next version.

  38. July 7th, 2012 at 09:18 | #55

    Very handy tool! I just found a (tiny) default: when I create a new album (to put pictures inside), or decide to use an existing, but empty album, the name of this album doesn’t appear in the drop down list.

    Nevertheless, MyImgur is a beautiful and handy tool, thanks for it!

    June 23rd, 2012 at 21:38 | #57

    So i tried uploading even after i got Imgur APi Error 404 and the image was still sent to my new account but the image also got corrupted. My guess is that my old account also got Imgur API Error 404 while trying login to Myimgur but Myimgur never showed me that message.

  40. NinjaTheory
    June 23rd, 2012 at 21:27 | #58

    Tried the updated version still doesn’t work. I tried the debug method you sent me but when I made a new account for it, i get “Imgur API Error 404 Re-login might be needed” while trying to login in using MyImgur 3.01 but my old account never got this error.

      You must use the installer; the context-menu from the older versions is a different DLL etc.

    June 23rd, 2012 at 10:30 | #61

    Nvm my email, identified the problem; the file does get uploaded, but if you have an album selected, it doesn’t enable the copy buttons after setting the image to the album.

    Will publish a fix today.
