Imgur Sux

Postby tiktok » October 11th 2017, 7:24pm

Every time I upload to Imgur now the photo just sits there and a sign says "This May Take Awhile." When I check an hour later the upload is usually nowhere to be found.

I switched to Flickr. It seems easier to organize and use. Imgur would only let me use the top twenty photos, I couldn't access any others.

Really? I've got almost five hundred images on Imgur, and haven't had any issues with it at all. And I'm a computer dullard.

Me, too, nary a problem. Are you guys using it on your phones or tablets as opposed to on a laptop? I bet that's part of the problem.

Now, I wouldn't say that, John; you're a dullard in a lot areas... :scratch:

Opps, please accept my apologies, Mort. It's been a long day, and I feel terrible using such language and sew fourth.

Are you in the mobile app? The app sucks, use the website instead. If you are using the website, clear history may help.

Are you uploading a video?

Are you on an iPhone? iPhones are notorious for mistakenly having the "Live" feature turned on. This makes every photo a small video. It also makes the files much larger.

Sounds like you may have grouped your photos into "Albums". This happens when you upload more than one at a time. In the app, it will say Album before clicking and you should see more than one photo after that click.

On desktop, you click 'images' instead of 'albums'.

Flickr is OK but comes with it's own set of quirks and limitations.
