If you want to use images on your webpage, or an article you are posting on the web, you may need to host it somewhere. If you have your own website, you can upload the image there, but images consume a lot more storage space than text. High storage consumption means that all the hosting space that you have bought for your website can be consumed very fast. Although you can conserve storage space by the uploading images to image sharing platforms, it becomes quite a tedious process when hundreds of images are to be uploaded and shared. Hosting websites, such as Imgur.com, Minus, and ImageShack.us allow users to upload images for free. Imgur, in particular, is an image hosting website that offers account-based, and anonymous image uploading services, but you are required to open the website before you can upload the images. Today, we have a miniscule open source tool for you called ImageUP that allows you to quickly upload images to Imgur directly from your desktop. It remembers the images you have uploaded in the past, and shows all the images in a list, so that you can easily view them and copy their public links for sharing.
The application is portable, and allows you to upload images by just dragging them over the main interface. Moreover, it doesn’t include any extra features and settings, and you can start using it instantly. By default, the main window of the application stays on top of every other window. To upload an image, just drag it over the main interface. You can also select multiple images at the same time to upload them to Imgur.
Click the Images button at the top to view all the images that have been uploaded in the past. Each image can be selected to copy its URL, preview it, or delete it from the list.
Clicking Preview opens a thumbnail size preview if the image is available in the list. You can use it to check the images before you copy their URLs for pasting in other applications.
It took me a long time to figure out how to move the application window around on your desktop. If anyone of you is having the same issue, just click and hold the greyed out ImageUP text at the top to move the window. ImageUP works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
