    Hi,

    This might be a more general linux question rather than specific to elementary; but what program do you use that can auto-upload screenshots you take to image-hosting sites such as imgur?

    The very best screenshot tool i know is shutter. Shutter also includes upload-to-imgur plugin, but they are using an old, inactive API. You have to replace this file Imgur.pm as it is written here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/shutter/+bug/1565048/comments/14

    A good option seems to be to download shutter via PPA, so you have a newer version as in elementary0.3 given:

    Code (Text):
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    Upload to Imgur (when patched, so the file Imgur.pm replaced) > Screenshot > Export > Upload > Public Hosting > Imgur Guest.
    The only point i did not find out is how to add username+password.. Yes there is an option, but credentials filling in is not possible in Imgur > Edit > Preferences > Upload :(
