Uploading a screenshot
All you need to do is simply run
Uploading a screenshot to your account
imgur-screenshot.sh --connect # shows you which account you're connected to imgur-screenshot.sh -l
(Most are probably pre-installed)
Tip: Use --check to see what's missing.
- Linux only:
- xclip (needed for
- OS X only:
- terminal-notifier or growlnotify
This will not work on Windows. (maybe with cygwin?)
I have successfully tested this on Ubuntu and OS X.
If this won't work on your OS, create a new issue.
The screenshot will be taken after the selection has been made. This might be annoying if you want to capture something quickly and then want to select an area. However, you can take a full shot and use the edit option to crop the image before upload.
