A collection of utilities to upload images to imgur and copy the URLs to the clipboard.

Upload to Imgur.workflow

Installing to OS X

  1. Double-click on the service to install it.
  2. If you want, create a hotkey for the upload service in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Services.


  1. Select the image(s) that you want to upload.
  2. If you've set up a hotkey for the service, push it, and you're done!
    Otherwise, click the application name in the menu bar (probably "Finder"), go to "Services", then click "Upload to Imgur".


A bash script for OS X and Linux that uploads an image to imgur and copies the image URL to the clipboard.

Usage: imgur <filename>

Imgur will print the URL, and put the delete page's URL on stderr. If you're on a Mac or have xsel/xclip, the image URL will also be copied to the clipboard.

Prerequisite: curl Optional: pbcopy (included in OS X), xsel, or xclip
