  • I have windows phone, and mac / linux / windows laptops and still unable to upload photos :(

    sorry but as a user this is one of my current priority concerning strava..

     

    As a developer it's so easy to upload photo especially if you already have your api ready ( for android and ios.. )

  • As a long time user of Strava, I also would like to be able to upload photos from my computer directly.  As a programmer, this seems like a simple request and I don't understand the resistance from the Strava team to better support the Garmin and other non-phone app users in this matter.

    Strava, please re-prioritize this request or you stand to lose many otherwise devoted customers.

  • Really disappointing Strava would prioritize Beacon (a service Strava users must pay for that they can get for free from Garmin) over the uploading of photos via a PC.

  • 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? ;)

  • 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.

  • 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!?

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

    Really?

  • Several people have written here that for a developer this is an hour's job. Well, the API is there, it's just undocumented. I've reverse engineered it and described it here: https://github.com/thomaschampagne/stravistix/issues/217#issuecomment-232316511

    Now please someone just make a web app that lets people upload photos. I'm not a web dev and I don't actually need to upload photos from a computer, so it'd be a waste of time for me to do that.

  • Have any of you seen the new iPhone 7 commercial? Guy looks outside, it's raining, he mounts his phone to his bars, starts Strava, and heads out into the rain. My money bets that Strava jumped in bed with Apple who prohibited the PC upload we are all requesting. Your BS response and closing of this thread is ridiculous

  • OK people, You can obviously see that STRAVA has no interest in ever giving us the ability to upload photos from the desktop/computer for whatever reasons. This request has been pushed by loads of Strava members for two years and the latest excuse from the Strava staff is that they have a full plate and this is not a priority. Some of us who are PREMIUM members have even asked that it be made a Premium item which could increase Strava Premium members so even a money incentive doesn't work so looks like this is just a dead cat in the road issue. Too bad since it would have been something nice to have. So, I'm not about to start using a smart phone on rides so will just have to continue to post photos on Facebook OR use some other places to share the photos & videos. I think there is/will be more support for this from people like Garmin than there will ever be from Strava, too bad.

  • If someone uploads a photo for a ride, and I want to include the same photo for my ride, as we were riding together, I have to do the following.

    1) go to the Strava desktop website on my laptop
    2) open the image
    3) use Dev Tools web inspector to find the URL of the image
    4) copy/paste the URL and open in a new tab
    5) save the image to my laptop
    6) send the image to my phone using e.g. iMessage on Mac, or AirDrop, WhatsApp, or similar
    7) open Messages on my phone, select 'Save' for the image I've sent, to get it into my camera roll
    8) Open Strava app on phone, upload the photo.

    PLEASE could you just add a 'Save Photo' option when viewing photos on the Strava app (alongside 'Report Photo') .. would save me (and I guess many others) such a headache!

    Also, having an option to view the photos full-screen in the app would be great, and to be able to swipe through them.

  • Elle, my ability just went live and looks as-described in the instructions!  Thanks!

    @John Moran, I too never record any activities with the Strava app.  I use it to aggregate, analyze and share my activities with others that are uploaded to the site from Garmin.  But that doesn't relegate this feature to useless, though it would be good to add photos via the regular website too!

  • I'll chime in with the others who are hoping for desktop support. Part of the hassle of using Instagram for Strava photos is when I have to transfer photos from my camera to my desktop to my phone (or from my camera to my phone) so that I can upload them. I and those who follow my Strava account love good photos.. which is why I carried a great point-and-shoot while summit Mount Elbert today. :-)

    Still, this capability in and of itself is a great step forward. Just wanted Strava to know that one more small step forward would be great!

  • Glad that Strava is doing something, but sorry that a web version wasn't first. "No plans"? Seriously?

  • ERIC is completely correct, THE DESKTOP VERSION SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRST!!! Most of our local cyclists (at least the serious ones) DO NOT use Android or iPhone for rides because there are too many errors, too many problems like short battery life, and others. So, this update to Strava, although showing some positive movement, is also WORTHLESS to most of us. Time to get working on that desktop app.

     

    While I'm at it, I would like to mention, AGAIN, that we need the ability to create challenges for our groups/clubs. As the admin for our club I created a distance challenge for March which will complete this Sunday. I've had some complaints from members about some of the limitations and I've told them it's all due to Strava and the limits of creating a challenge WITHOUT any support from Strava. It has been a pain in the ass running the challenge since I had to create a spreadsheet and track our members progress myself each week. I can truthfully say that we will not be having any more challenges until Strava starts to give us (club admins) some support.

  • +1 to the many who suggest that upload to the web version is more important than via smartphone implementations. As with a number of the commenters, I use a standalone GPS for ride recording, rtaher than the smartphone app, for most of the reasons already mentioned. All my photos are geotagged (whether taken by smartphone or other cameras), and so the ideal mechanisation would be that I can upload photos, either direct to the site or via the smartphone app, and in both cases they are automatically associated with the appropriate ride. A map view with some sort of icon to indicate where picture(s) exist would be great too. Right now, this is probably the only feature which has been making me continue to upload rides to both RWGPS and Strava - given this functionality I would probably just Strava.

  • I record my ride on an Edge (for accuracy) and carry a phone for pictures.  It seems that I can NOT add photos to an activity displayed on my phone if the activity was created by a GPS.  Why not a common edit button?

  • Yup. Adding photos to an activity AFTER the fact to an activity via the website would be great. I don't really want to fumble about with my phone too much while I'm dripping after a run :}

  • I always carry a small compact camera with me to record activities and want to add images after the activity via the website not via the phone. Seems to be a popular request. PLEASEEEEE!

  • Adding my voice to the masses pleading for a web uploader, so I can upload the dozens of pictures I have on my laptop from previous races.

  • Is there anyway to add a photo via the website? I don't use the mobile app, as I don't like running with a phone stopped to my arm/waist. However when friends and family take pics I would like to be able to upload them to that activity.

  • Another vote for adding photos from the web app. I use a Garmin watch most of the time but would like to upload some photos to attached to some of my runs especially my races. Do you have an extimate from the developers when this feature might be added?

    Thanks

  • +1 for website upload. I have tried the APP but smartphone GPS is just not good enough so I use a GPS watch and manually upload each file - seems such a simple thing to also allow photos to be attached to the ride via the website.....

  • Still no direct PC support for images. That's a bit disappointing. Tranferrign photos from your camera to your PC and then to the phone is a cumbersome and tiresom chore. It really can't be that hard to add the interface to the website if it's already in the  "Edit Ride" section of the app can it?

     

    All the same great job, you get that not all riders are there for pure athleticism, but some like adventure and to tell their stories. The appeal of road cycling to me is the same as the appeal of cross country mountain biking, I like to explore and see things, beating segment times and improving athletically is great but not the be all and end all.

  • It is really strange to me, that Strava is that ignorant towards web-based photo-uploads. I too have missed that option for a long time!..   That said, photos are not that important to me, how ever I would like the opportunity to upload a photo occasionally and that without  buying a new smartphone. I use a very small and old smartphone (Xperia Active) with version 4.1.7 of Strava, which do not support photo uploads and the phone does not support further updates. 

    I don´t want to buy a new phone, because new phones are just way too big these days. Remember small and light are better when you are on a bike, right? :-)....  So Strava beeing that ignorant to a massive user request, would certainly justify changing  to another site completely, like ENDOMONDO. That might be the language they understand, just remember to delete your Strava profile to complete the message, otherwise you would still count as a user, and they wouldn´t care!...you can always rejoin if they come to their senses.

    ENDOMONDO has the feature of web based Photo uploads which is nice, it couldn´t be that hard to do for Strava if they really wanted to accomodate this massive user request. 

    I do use both Strava and Endomondo myself, mostly because I started with Endomondo and kept the profile, but later found Strava more interresting with segments, fitness curves and supporting powermeters which endomondo doesn´t do.... To me Strava is still the more interesting of the two, so I will stick around for now. Strava is also better at crushing numbers especially if you combine with Stravistix and/or Veloviewer. Then Again if you just want to crush the numbers an even better option might be SportTracks, Golden cheetah (freeware) or Training Peaks (pay site), there are lots of options... . If the social part is the more important part to you; Endomondo for sure is the place to be. The only thing Strava really has going for them are the segments however  these are quite genius. other sites such as ridewithgps or Garmin also have segments, but these are somehow not working as well/being as popular as the Strava segments are. It is all about pros vs. cons I guess. 

    Still strange why Strava is that reluctant to listen to the users and act upon the listening!. Maybe they get some secret fundings from phone comapanies!? that want people to change to newer phones!? or something completely different?   In business it all about the money, and that goes without any exceptions!

    Strava might prove me wrong by adding this very simple feature to their web page.

    Strava???

  • All,

    We haven't had a response on this issue for several months.  In the absence of reliable information, speculation can run rampant--so in that spirit, allow me to speculate on the real issues at play here.  First of all, there is no technical issue.  If Strava wanted to enable photo upload from the website, that could be implemented almost instantly.  Second of all, Strava is not a charity; it is a venture-funded startup that has to find a way to deliver a payback to its investors.  I haven't tried to look up numbers, but my guess is that premium subscriptions are not sufficient to deliver the kind of returns that investors are looking for.  Strava is certainly looking at all options for delivering those kinds of returns, including increasing operating revenues, getting revenue from partnerships with other companies, advertising, IPO, or an outright sale to another company.  Before there was direct uploading of photos within Strava, there was a link with Instagram, and there has always been the option to log in via Facebook.  My guess is that the direct uploading of photos to Strava introduces a complication for an existing or potential partnership.  Probably there has been a decision to freeze the expansion of certain features, including web uploads of photos, pending some major business milestone--a partnership or sale, most likely.
