Imgur is one of the most widely-used image uploading services at present, partly because it allows users to generate direct links to their pictures, which can be shared easily.
ImgurUploader is a very straightforward tray application that enables you to capture screenshots and upload them to Imgur instantly, as well as upload any picture that is already stored on your hard drive.
Small system tray app for those who wish to avoid clutter
The program does not come with a classic GUI, as you can control everything from the system tray menu and Settings panel. Only the tray icon is ever displayed, so you can rest assured that the application will not get in your way.
It is also worth noting that you don’t actually need to install anything before running the utility, as you just have to unpack the downloaded archive.
Simple desktop capture tool that can upload content to Imgur
With ImgurUploader, you can take a snapshot of the current screen, or all connected displays, and the program will upload it to Imgur automatically. The picture’s URL will be copied to the clipboard, and you can specify whether or not it should also be saved locally.
You can also use this program to upload images that have already been saved on your computer, a feature that will often come in handy.
Easy-to-use, but it could use a few additions
Sadly, the application does not allow you to take screenshots of specific windows or areas of the desktop, as it can only perform full-screen captures.
Moreover, it is worth mentioning that you cannot use hotkeys to capture content or upload images, which would have saved you quite a bit of time and effort.
In short, ImgurUploader is a lightweight, reliable but pretty basic application that needs a bit more work. It can be useful for those who often upload screenshots to Imgur, but it would benefit from a couple of extra features.
