  • Alright, at first I thought this was kind of lame trying to turn Strava into facebook, but its actually kind of cool e.g. showing a recent tour + pics to my mum (who's not going to see them on instagram!), the photos are (sometimes) in their actual locations along the tour so it tells a kind of story.

    Issues I've had so far:

    - on a tour without mobile reception, there's no real way to post pics to instagram until I get back, so they don't sync (outside the 30min window). I guess instagram must strip the original timestamps completely out? or you've just gone for post-time instead of capture-time for some other reason (capture time would be way better for anyone using a mobile to take the photos though since they've usually got GPS-synced time)

    - cannot upload from web, this makes it really awkward to add images from a regular camera... i have to get them onto my phone somehow first which is a big pain (even the instagram option is out, since you use post-time not capture-time, or instagram strips it, or whatever)

    - would be good to allow sync from other services like Flickr or Facebook etc, especially those that keep the image capture time available, or let you set it (Flickr / facebook respectively) so you can make sure the images show up in the right activity at the right location

  • one more: just grabbed some shots off my camera, synced via Apple's Photostream to my phone so I could upload them to an activity. I confirmed the dates/times in the images are correct, but after editing the ride and adding these images to it, they don't show up on the map at locations along the ride like those I took on my phone do.

    Maybe you're using some date other than the EXIF "capture date", even for photos that I am quite sure would retain that info (I don't believe Apple strip that info for photos transferred via Photostream)

  • Any update on when we can expect to be able to select multiple pictures at once from the camera roll on mobile rather than having to do this one by one? I'm using photos more and more as they really give life to a ride but adding them one by one is incredibly tedious.

  • Please add zoom functionality by pinching gesture. Something like when you view photos in Facebook. You can pinch gesture to zoom in. Some photos need to zoom in to see some details more clearly because our phones do not have big screens like tablets!

    Thanks.

  • Gidday guys - there's a workaround... you need to get the photo to your phone, and then you can edit the ride and attach a photo.  Its not ideal but it does work, albeit at the cost of double handling.

  • Hello, here's an update regarding minor changes to viewing photos on the iOS and Android app as well as the added ability to caption:

    When you click to view photos on the Strava mobile app, you will find a new functionality to scroll through photos if there are multiple photos attached. For your own activities, you can use this new scrollable view to add captions to your photos. 

    Enjoy -

  • Hi Elle,
    I just want to say thank you for the captions function.

    I'm not a programmer nor do I know much about the various considerations that must be made prior to introducing a new feature, but I suspect it's not quite as easy as it seems.

    Thank you and everyone at Strave for a really cool app and for everything you do to motivate us to get out and ride!

  • Pinch zoom is a must, especially since the mobile apps only work in Portrait model..

  • Another one for adding photos from the computer but I won't hold my breath as there are loads of requests for being able to add a route to a work out and this has never been implemented.

  • After a tour i pimp my photos with Snapseed. The exif timestamp and geo location is not changed by this. But when i upload the photo in Strava Android App, they are not placed at the map. What is going wrong? :/

  • I really missing the feature of upload photo from strava website. 

    I don not use android or iOS , I use a gps to record my tracks and take photos using a handycam.. 

    Is very, very , very annoying copy the photos to my android and then add one-by-one ... very, very unusable if you plan upload +5 photos...

     

    Please add the website upload photo feature!

  • On web compatibility for photos: We understand some of our members don't have the ability to capture and upload photos from their phone, or would prefer to upload photos from the Strava website. However, being a small company, we have other projects we've prioritized at this time and we simply can't fulfill all the feature requests in our community. We hope you understand this decision and we're excited to show you the amazing projects we're currently working on.

  • Elle, thanks for clarifying Strava's intentions.

    I'm guessing that the between-the-lines explanation is that storing and serving photos is expensive; Strava doesn't want to bear the infrastructure expense.

    In an alternate reality, Strava could offer website (or API) photo uploads as a Premium feature to encourage more subscriptions.

  • Have a look at Strava labs and you'll see what they're doing. Trying to sell our input into more marketable items such as heatmaps, flybys (which mainly aids stalkers and bike thieves - neither of which tend to be premium members), etc.

    "you could capture photos along your ride using any camera, and you would only have to transfer the photos to your phone to post them to a Strava activity through the Strava app."...

    Well, lets just look at the details. Most cameras are not blue tooth or wireless and so you have to (as with mine) transfer the photos to a PC first, then you need to decrease the size and then transfer to a phone (I have to do this by email btw as my phone is not compatible with my OS.

     

    Instead of having a button in the website feed the same as one the phone based up which says "upload photo". The only genuine reason to avoid this minor tweak is pigheadedness as ample silutions have been offered to counteract storage space etc. This and the removal of google maps show just what they think about members, particularly premium ones. "Ta for the money, but we're not really doing all this for you, our customers. Goodwill? Sorry I don't speak Customer Service, I speak English".

  • Hi, I also vote for being able to add photo on the web site. I'm having to jump through hoops to perform a simple task and photos really do add value for social/group rides. Could you let me know please if you have a REST API to add photos ?

  • Wow, along with everyone else i'm shocked that as a premium member i can't add a photo or link to an external photo using the web interface. I Happen to be a software engineer, and i can think of at least four different web platforms for which i could create a solid/tested/working "Add Photo" button in under five minutes. Gasp. Sorry, there are no excuses - because, of course, there are lots of paying customers that will most likely not renew a premium membership if this very simple feature is not added. I'm sure your development team knows that this would only take a half-day at most to implement. Even if you have a different agenda(s), surely it's worth it to avoid losing revenue and also get kudos for an extremely quick win.

  • This discussion has been going on for a couple of years and even though software engineers have said it could be done in less than a day nothing has happened. I've even said that, as a premium member, I would be willing to pay a couple of bucks more to be able to upload from the desktop and if it were a premium member benefit it should draw more paying members to Strava. I think most members really enjoy seeing their photos posted AND seeing photos from other Strava members from all over the world. The only reason I can see for not implementing this is maybe data storage OR Strava has some kind of agreements with other companies like a deal to force people to use iPhones/Android to post photos, or some other kind of hidden agreement. Since almost everyone I know uses dedicated devices (Garmin, etc.) and not smart photos to record rides it would seem like a winner for Strava to implement this.

  • It is absolutely ridiculous that users are not able to access photo files (beyond a cell phone) to enhance their Strava posts. I've already taken my premium membership cash elsewhere because of this.

  • In reply to John M.-

    Yep, must be a hidden agreement. Really, it can ONLY be either a hidden agreement, or a concern about automating the filtering out of inappropriate photos. Maybe that's partially what they're relying on the phone apps for.

    Storage can't be a reason, because they could just allow saving links to hosted photos that would just need to be rendered on the strava page.

    Either way, there's just no excuse for not allowing this since, you're right, most riders use a garmin/dedicated device rather than a phone.

  • On top of it all, why can't Strava just tell us what the issue is..at least then I could deal with it. this cloak of secrecy is bizzare.

  • Have to agree. From the messages I see, there must be hundreds of requests to be able to post photos from the desktop not just via a convoluted smart phone app of low quality. I have seen more requests for this ability than anything else but, it seems, that Strava has some reason not to do it. The other request I've seen is for ability to create group challenges another item that has been asked for years but, at least that is possible through 3rd party developers like this  http://mtb.hamdentykke.dk/ and app I've used for our group quite successfully. Wouldn't it be nice if someone could come up with a way to post photos that bypasses Strava developers!

  • +1 on adding photos manually via PC and not having to use the Strava App.

  • iPhone app:

    Would love to see .. tap to expand a photo to full-screen, then swipe left/right through photos. Press and hold or tap to bring up a menu with options like 'Save Photo', 'Share', etc.

  • I love Strava BUT not being able to upload photos from a PC/laptop + your continued excuses are pathetic . I'm not interested in the  "amazing projects we're currently working on"  I'm interested in you getting the basic functionality of the web site right first .

  • I just found out desktop upload of photos was not possible. Like really!? I like Strava, I use it the whole time. But it strikes me that there hasn't been any new stuff added in like forever...? I'd be willing to pay for Strava - but one thing that holds me back is that there's no meaningful developments being added (like desktop upload for example...). If you want to monetize me, then there needs to be a steady stream of new stuff to keep me hooked.
