  • I copied a photo into my ipad roll from an email. On one day, it worked fine. On another day Strava could not find the photo on the roll even though it was clearly there. Tried more than once, no luck.  Buggy evidently. Add my vote for loading photo from computer option.

  • I don't undestand why is it not possible to upload photos from PC. From the technical side it's very easy to do, what is the reason?

    It's great to add some photos to your ride, I like check my friends rides and see their photos, but I can't add them because I don't use Strava on phone and just only upload .gpx files from my Garmin. 

    On the front page of Strava we can see - Social Network for Athletes, but why without photos? ;)

  • @Christopher W. I can confirm your issue, same for my iPad mini. For some reason (iOS version, Strava app version - who knows...) images are no longer seen though I can select images rectangles and upload the photos, hoping I got the correct ones (trial & error approach). However it still works on the iPad of my wife... And works on my Android. Nevertheless I'm still in favor of upload capability from a computer. Since it's possible to upload a profile photo from a computer it's ridiculous not supporting this capability for activities!

  • Please add me to the list of users who would like to add photos from their computer. The Beacon feature is interesting but is still not as powerful as something like the  "Real Time GPS Tracking" app on android. Hence, I think the ability to upload photos from a computer should have been prioritized over the Beacon feature.

  • Beacon is almost completely superfluous.  Android has various tracking functions, and apple has find my phone.   I've done this for years already.

    The only win for Beacon is that you can limit their access to finding you, but not wiping your phone.

  • I think I know why Strava does not offer a way to upload photos.  It's probably because they do not want to store them.

    But, really, storage is CHEAP.   Come on Strava, listen to your users and don't add useless features like Beacon when there are already apps that do tracking.

    Listen to you users and add the basic feature of uploading photos.

    Although I find the inability to post photos from computer absurd, Beacon is not however pointless. It's a very simple and easy way for people to track you. Other methods I have tried are impractical e.g. find my iphone with allows access above and beyond the job in hand, difficult to use by either myself/the other people or don't even work. This is clean and simple as it's integrated into my recording on ride on phone. I gather the feature was also very heavily requested.

  • Based on this reply by the moderator I am contemplating STOPPING my premium membership to Strava...perhaps if others decide to do the same then Strava will make this EASY update to their system...money talks, start losing customers and then perhaps they will make the change. But of course why try and make your customers happy?

    As heavily requested as making the existing photo upload feature work better?

  • Gah! Just tried adding some photos to a ride and the experience seems even worse than ever. You can only upload from camera roll, which means you have to save images from photostream to Camera Roll if using iPad app.  And then even half the images are simply blank or missing when bowsing for shots via app. Then to make this dismal experience even worse after I managed to upload one image, there is then no option to try add another after that one attempt. 

    This adding photos nonsense is one of the worst software user experiences I've had to deal with. Not to mention that the making the adding images a  social media platform so very difficult is completely baffling.  

    If you are a keen or in my case a pro photographer, you is less likely to use a crappy phone camera to take photos because you tend to have an actual camera to hand only to discover that adding pics that are not from your phone harder work than getting a KOM on every single segment of the ride.

  • +1 Jeremy. Exactly my issue, I brought it up to Elle (and another support person) a month or so ago, they have no good work around for us. The best I could get was "email the pictures to yourself, then save to Camera Roll". Or (as I figured out myself) add the pictures to an iCloud shared album, then save from the shared album, which then will show up in Camera Roll.. Jumping through hoops to get pictures in the stupid Camera Roll. This work flow is ridiculously bad UX.

    I already canceled my recurring premium membership, when it comes around to renew, it will depend on if this work flow has been fixed. Being able to browse albums other than Camera Roll (how it was before) is not a big request.

    Needless to say, all this is a non-issue if they just allowed photo uploads from the web...

  • Well, there are 280 comments posted in this thread.  I think it likely that around 100 of those posts have a mention of browser-upload, requesting that feature for PC users. 

    An actual thread in Support  for this capability are at this URL:  https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216931447-How-do-I-add-photos-to-an-activity-from-my-computer-   ... But that thread has been closed by moderators. 

    This request is not from "a few users", but I'm guessing the majority of users would like this feature.   Sharing is probably the most exciting thing one can do w Strava, and nothing shares more immediately than a photo.

     

    @ Elle: how about a poll?

  • This community feedback forum is becoming more of an entertainment feature than the photo feature will ever be. I love getting emails from this forum! My new favourite: "You then discover adding pics that are not from your phone harder work than getting a KOM on every single segment of the ride" Can we ask for a feature to give Kudos to other's comments perhaps? Or maybe only strava premium members will be allowed to view this forum in the future!?

  • "As heavily requested as making the existing photo upload feature work better?"

    Why not? People often think the things that bother them most are the most important, when in reality way many more people may be interested in some other problem. I find the photos side of things incredibly annoying, particularly as I'm a photographer. Yet on balance being tracked by girlfriend if I'm out riding on my own is actually far more important. If I want to share photos FB, my website or other social platforms are much better for it in reality.

    As it happened some twunt in a car nearly killed me last night whilst going to local shops on bike. Something which made me realise even little trips like that where I ended up going to a different location than originally planned, beacon could be very useful.

  • I LOVE how Strava has decided to just completely ignore the wishes of their user base! There has been ZERO response from Strava, the other thread that addresses this request has been closed by moderators, and I have not seen ONE thing with regards to this awesome list of improvements you hype so much!

     

    Seriously, what are these projects you have prioritized?!?!

    This literal middle-finger to your users, Stravas, is messed up to say the least. 

    This just leads me to believe you're just going to keep Strava limping along until someone decides to buy you - if they decided to at all.

    You do NOTHING to inspire confidence in your company or your operations. Hence the reason I refuse to pay for anything "Premium" when you can't even provide the most basic functionality like pictures from a PC/laptop.

    At one point, I actually spoke highly of Strava with my other athlete friends. Now, you couldn't pay me to recommend you or your product.

  • Hey, it is possible to attach image to this forum and not to my Strava activity?

    Really?

  • I've had a think and the photos part  is a nice feature, but its not core services.

    Its all about the ride, and while the scenery is nice, the ride data is the most important part.   I no longer bother with photos.

  • @Criggie. The core part of Strava is the ride, that's not in question, but what the photo features does it allows us to build a narrative, to turn these rides into more than just numbers and segment busting which isn;t what cycling for normal people should be about. Most get on the bike to explore, to undertake journeys and experience the open road, new places etc. So the images can form a major part of that thing so when the iOS+Android photo addition was made, many including myself were and are delighted with the feature, but nearly all agree that its sorely missing from the web based application which is not only a shame, but easy for programmers to implement as there are a number of online tools or even offsite hosts which can allow storage elsewhere and integration almost seamless.


    The issue cannot be storage as 3rd parties would allow storage and integration with no issues. It's not about cost as the update would be a matter of patching in existing code or even a day's labour from one of their own programmers. Instead we've been given reasons which make little sense.

    For those who do not use a smartphone to track their rides (the majority using Garmin devices for instance) or those who use a real camera (for obvious reasons) would no doubt love the opportunity to share their images in a more practical way as right now the workaround is cumbersome and completely unnecessary. A user has to transfer their images to their smartphones, the log into their app and edit their ride and add the images when it's much easier to just back them up on their PCs and to add the images through the much wanted web interface. What people are asking for in their hundreds is not unreasonable.

  • Since Strava let's you upload pics here, I'm going to start posting my pics from my rides here.

    Shaking my fist at Strava, get your priorities straight and give your users what they want!

  • Most troubling thing to me isn't that they haven't implemented such a simple and basic feature to their website, but that they show absolutely no respect and care to their users.  Why is it so hard to communicate with your users?  A little information on what is going on and why this feature isn't up and running would be better than complete silence.

  • @TheMadT   Please don't do that..... I mean, how are we supposed to find your ride if you don't post the link as well?

    As Chris said, "its about building a narrative" and all you're doing is posting a photo without the info.  Posting photos can be done on hundreds of generic photo sharing sites. 

    Nice view btw.

  • Hi

    Please understand that many people, as me, are using not a phone to track our activities, but a Garmin device or something more advanced (which include heart rate monitor) that has no camera integrated, hence there are no ways of upload pictures being made with a compact camera, for example.

  • Adding one more voice to the "Please, may we have desktop-upload of photos?" that has been well presented in the 200+ requests above. Unlike some of the more, er, obnoxious posters, I won't be unsubscribing, nor shake my fist at the sky to denounce the perfidy of Strava - I very much enjoy the existing features and the constant improvement, and make full use of the community. Photo is not a Priority One feature, but i'm hoping you'll find a slot for it in one of your engineers' schedule, to make that community tighter yet.  Thanks!

  • I think it's a big one for development, I'm currently running an old iphone with an old version of Strava so I can't upload from there even if I sent the pictures across to the mobile.  It really can't be that hard to add it the desktop site?

  • Wow, I assumed I was somehow being very dense but it's true: you really can't upload photos to your activities from anything except your phone?!  Most people I know don't run/ ride using their phone in this way. And if you do a race, and are emailed photos from the race organisers, it's really fiddly to open them on my phone from an attachment to get them onto strava- it seems insane that you can't add them from a PC. Please can I add my voice to the long list of those requesting this as a priority? It seems such a basic feature.

  • To be honest I don't even have Strava app on my phones for six months now. I just don't need it because I log my rides using other devices. Keeping an app just to add pictures looks like serious overkill.

    I think a lot of people are in the same boat.

    Maybe the descision to support photo upload only from app was made to make people use apps more to rack up app stats and service usage (because people would pay more attention to notifications, etc)?

  • From a Premium member:

    To add a photo taken from a real camera is exceedingly complicated!
    My iPhone will not let me upload the photos from my PC to the right "place" on the phone hard disk drive, in order to be able to upload it to Strava. 
    Instead, This is what I have to do:

    1. Upload photos from the camera to my PC.
    2. Send e-mails with attached photos to myself, only one in each e-mail (due to e-mail MB restrictions). Eg 4 pictures takes 4 e-mails.
    3. Open my e-mail box in the iPhone.
    4. Download the photos to my iPhone.
    5. Open the Strava app in iPhone.
    6. Upload the photos to Strava

    That's a lot of hassle and time-consuming. We're a LOT of people here that would prefer to only need steps 1. and 6., ie from our PCs upload directly into the Strava web app.
    I strongly suggest that you Strava people reconsider your priorities and ASAP fix this!

  • I realize there has been some angst regarding this topic, but for those with cameras that would like to download to Strave there is a fairly simple alternative to be considered. For those not familiar, Mobi makes an SD card that allows most digital cameras to have a wifi connection with their phone. You can then download directly to your phone from your camera. There are some limitations with some cameras, but it works reasonably well with my Canon S100. I know this doesn't address the central request, but I've found it to be a reasonable workaround.
