Save image to Imgur from Nimbus Extension in Google Chrome

During development everytime I take a screenshot via Nimbus Extension and edit it. Then to upload images to imgur.com I have to open imgur.com in new tab then copy image and paste to it, and upload. To get rid of this lengthy process I decided to create something that will make this whole process easier and faster.

 

I was thinking to develop new Google Chrome extension but due to lack of time I thought why not to modify Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast extension and add this functionality.

 

Resources

At the time of writing this and modifying extension I have following resources.

  • Ubuntu LTS 14.04 (32 bit)
  • Google Chrome 47.0.25xx.xxx
  • Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast 7.0.4
  • A bit developed mind

 

How it works

  • Capture webpage
  • Edit webpage
  • Click “Save to Imgur”
  • Wait for few seconds till it uploads image,
  • BooM! URL is copied to Clipboard already !

Here below is a video of how it works.

Download Modified Nimbus ZIP of Extension:

Download this Zip file, Extract it. Then load it to Google Chrome. If you don’t know how to load folder as extension checkout below link.

 

UPDATE:

One of my user suggested to update this extended version of original extension with latest update so I got time and updated it with 8.2.2 (currently latest version). You can find that hacked version of extension below.

 

Note : This extension is property and copyright of it’s owners. This modified extension is provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

Enjoy Hacking !!!
