MyImgur (formerly Tiny Uploader) is a tool to quickly upload pictures to imgur.com, able to send multiple files in a queue, crop an area of the screen, clipboard, or capture the active window with F11. Once uploaded, the program can copy a link to the file directly to your clipboard.

The program can auto-resize pictures and/or lower quality automatically if file exceeds a given size to speed-up uploads on slow connections. Will store captures from cropping or paste, and supports multiple monitors in any configurations (spanned horz/vertically etc.)

Why is this listed as portable? It creates folders and writes its settings to %appdata%\MyImgur.

Gretz: confirmed. Joby pointed out we were missing a launching argument. Entry updated.

MSVCR71.DLL MSVCP71.DLL are no longer dependencies
only `msvcp110_win.dll` but it's lazy loaded

@Bruce: Thank you and updated

I have been using FastStoned for several years and I really like it very much. It does everything I want almost intuitively, I have used other capture programs in the past but none compare to FastStoned.I use just about every day either resizing or cropping a pic so I'm glad it’s always here 4me.

I'm a great fan of this program. And, as I've said before, just when you think FastStone Image Viewer can't get better the developers come up with another gem ... this time it supports dual instances, which allows you to run two image viewers at the same time, drag and drop images between them, and compare images from different folders side by side. Well done FastStone!

Although it's an image uploader with a lot of capability, I was actually most impressed by the included screen capture system. The super easy annotation and batch uploads may completely change how I do screen captures.
