How to Enable the Sharing Options for Your Imgur Images and Share Them Anywhere You Want


How can I obtain a link for an image uploaded to Imgur when the sharing options are disabled?

I have uploaded an image to Imgur with a title, a description, and tags, but I cannot share it on Reddit because the “To Community” and “Grab Link” buttons are not active. This happens for all the images I upload, regardless of the metadata I provide. What is the cause of this issue and how can I resolve it?


Imgur is a popular online image hosting and sharing service that allows users to upload, edit, and share images with others. One of the features of Imgur is that it generates a unique link for each image that can be used to embed or share the image on other platforms, such as Reddit.

However, some users may encounter a problem where the sharing options for their uploaded images are disabled, meaning that they cannot access the “To Community” and “Grab Link” buttons that normally appear below the image. This can be frustrating if you want to share your image on Reddit or elsewhere.

There are several possible causes for this issue, and different solutions depending on the cause. Here are some of the common scenarios and how to fix them:

  • You are not logged in to your Imgur account. If you upload an image to Imgur without logging in to your account, the image will be uploaded as a guest and you will not be able to access the sharing options. To fix this, you need to log in to your Imgur account and then upload the image again. Alternatively, you can claim the image as yours by clicking on the “Claim” button that appears on the top right corner of the image page. This will add the image to your account and enable the sharing options.
  • You have disabled the sharing options in your account settings. If you have logged in to your Imgur account and uploaded an image, but the sharing options are still disabled, it may be because you have turned off the sharing options in your account settings. To fix this, you need to go to your account settings and then click on the “Privacy” tab. There, you will see a checkbox that says “Allow my images to be shared with the Imgur community”. Make sure that this checkbox is checked and then save your changes. This will enable the sharing options for all your images.
  • You have uploaded an image that violates Imgur’s terms of service. If you have uploaded an image that contains illegal, abusive, hateful, or otherwise inappropriate content, Imgur may disable the sharing options for that image as a way of enforcing its terms of service. To fix this, you need to delete the image and upload a different one that does not violate Imgur’s terms of service. You can read more about Imgur’s terms of service here:
  • You have encountered a bug or a glitch. If none of the above scenarios apply to you, and you still cannot access the sharing options for your image, it may be because of a bug or a glitch in Imgur’s system. To fix this, you can try some of the following troubleshooting steps:
  • Refresh the image page and see if the sharing options appear.
  • Clear your browser’s cache and cookies and try again.
  • Use a different browser or device and try again.
  • Contact Imgur’s support team and report the issue.
  • Hopefully,

one of these solutions will help you obtain a link for your image uploaded to Imgur and share it on Reddit or elsewhere. If you have any questions or feedback, please let me know. 😊
