Official Uploader Application for Ubuntu (.deb)

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated. now provide a multi-platform uploader application that makes batch uploading as simple as drag and drop. You don’t need an account and can upload pictures without needing to give so much as your name.


The bulk uploader has several features that make it preferable to the web interface: –

1. You can upload as many images as you like in one go.

2. You can choose to resize the images one by one, tag them and choose the privacy options individually. To tag/resize/private more than one image at a time ” just hold shift and click on all the images you wish to edit.

3. You get all of your URL’s in a pop-up window with a simple copy-to-clipboard button and a “cycle through the images uploaded” button. (An arrow, basically!)


You can grab the .deb from website @

Once installed you can find the application in Applications > Internet > Imageshack Uploader.
