NANY 2013 Release: sImgurUploader
« on: December 08, 2012, 11:35:44 PM »
NANY 2013 Entry Information

Application Name sImgurUploader
Supported OSes Windows XP and later
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Simple commandline application that uploads a single image to Imgur and automatically puts the URL on the clipboard.  This application was designed as a Screenshot Captor tool and, to that end, includes a .sctool file for easy integration within Screenshot Captor.  However, that's not a requirement and this application can easily be integrated into your own scripts and such.

You must have your own Imgur Anonymous API key for this application to work.  On its first run, sImgurUploader will ask you to enter your API key.  Without one, the application will exit.  If you do not have an Imgur Anonymous API key, you can get one here: http://imgur.com/register/api_anon.

Usage
Installation
If you intend on using this as a Screenshot Captor tool, download the zip file and extract its contents into your Screenshot Captor\Tools folder.   Run the sImgurUploader.exe file manually and it will ask for your API key.  You then need to restart Screenshot Captor or go to Tools > Configure External Tools and then just close the Config dialog.  If you intend to use this application stand-alone, extract the contents to whatever folder you'd like and invoke the application from there.

Using the Application
Assuming you have it installed properly, within Screenshot Captor, simply use the Tools menu.  Otherwise the usage is simple:
c:\path\to\sImgurUploader.exe "<path to image file>"
Alternately, you can drop an image file onto the executable.  You can reference the sImgurUploader.log file for deletion links, etc.

Uninstallation
Delete the folder you installed it to.  For Windows XP, the sImgurUploader.ini and sImgurUploader.log file are saved in the install folder.  For Windows Vista and later, those files are saved in your %APPDATA%\Skwire Empire\sImgurUploader folder.  The application doesn't write any of its settings to the registry.

Note: You can also optionally tell Screenshot Captor to use it as your default image uploader, by providing the path to the tool here:

As always, first-rate! I love it when one software developer creates a tool that is useful both in its own right, and can extend other software's utility. Synergy.

It works great, using it in tools for SC.
Can this tool upload to an Imgur account, or just anonymous only?

Currently this is designed to work with anonymous API only.  I could look deeper into regular accounts if there is enough interest.  Imgur use an OAuth scheme and, from what I know, those aren't the easiest things to work with.  Anybody have any thoughts on that?

I'd definitely like it to work with an account if possible...

I'm ok with anonymous. Still interested.
I can use Rightload or ShareX or a few others for my account.

I have http://rightload.org...x.php/rightload.html set to Imgur.
And ShareX set to Photobucket.

Awesome thanks for adding this Skwire :) 
Unfortunately, mine seems to be adding "URL" tags rather than "IMG" tags!   :D

Note to others: The INI is not in the Screenshot Captor/Tools folder, it's in the App Data Folder..  Such as C:\Users\<my name>\AppData\Roaming\Skwire Empire\sImgurUploader

Just wanted to pop in and reiterate my thanks.

I'm actually surprised by the degree to which this has streamlined my ability to post screenshots onto the various tech forums I frequent.   :Thmbsup:

I managed to setup Minicap (http://www.donationc...r/MiniCap/index.html) so that it's fully transparent   :)

Used command line
"C:\Program Files\MiniCap\MiniCap.exe" -captureregselect -save C:\Users\Kunkel\Minicaps\Img-$date$-$uniquenum0$.png -exit  -postrun "C:\Program Files\ScreenshotCaptor\Tools\sImgurUploader\sImgurUploader.exe $file$"

Had to make a folder for Minicap to save files.  Works good though.  I'll cross-post this over there....

Doh!  I forgot to thank you for the screencast, Stephen.  :-[

      notification popup will last ten seconds or until clicked.  (Thanks, lanux128)

Not a problem!

Feature Request:  Ability to upload to account  rather than anonymous.  That would be bloody handy!

Yeah, I know.  :-[ I haven't had as much time to work on that feature as I'd like.
