A simple macOS command line tool for uploading your screenshots from clipboard to Imgur

Github Actions Status License pypi DOI


  • Press control+shift+command+3 or control+shift+command+4 to capture and copy a screenshot.

  • Run clip2imgur in your terminal, then boom, the image URL is in your clipboard.

  • If it is your first time to run clip2imgur, you can choose to authorize this tool, and your image will be posted in your image collection (username.imgur.com/all).

  • You also can choose to post anonymously, but it is hard to get the url later and Imgur might delete your posts.

In default setting, the URL of posted image will be copied to your clipboard. You can use flags to configure it.

$ clip2imgur --html
$ clip2imgur -n
short long description
-m --markdown URL will be copied in the Markdown image format.[](https://i.imgur.com/x.png)
-t --html URL will be copied in the HTML image format.<img style="max-width:100%;" src="https://i.imgur.com/x.png">
-n --notcopy Your image URL will not be copied to your clipboard
-a --anon Post the image anonymously

Personally I like to include images in Markdown file using the HTML format, which gives more control of the display. If you forget these flags, you always can run clip2imgur -h to check the usage.

Change Log

This package is built using cross-platform Swift with Swift Package Manager (SPM), but it currently only supports macOS. There are three ways to install clip2imgur.


Using Homebrew is the recommended and also the easiest way to get clip2imgur installed on your mac. If you don't have Homebrew installed, you can simply run:

$ /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Then, to install clip2imgur:

$ brew tap xiaohk/clip2imgur
