Add Photos from the Strava Website

Some of us have a windows phone, and while my first preference would be for an officially supported windows phone app with the full feature set, I doubt that is coming any time soon.  As such, it would be nice if we could add pictures from our own files from the web site rather than having to deal with Instagram.  I don't always upload Instagram photos in the time window allotted.  Truth be told, the only reason I have an Instagram account is so I can have my ride pictures show up in strava.  I would probably just close my Instagram account if you added manual file upload for ride pictures to the web site.

  • Yes, please Strava. We shouldn't have to fiddle around to upload a photo, particularly as premium members!

    Ridiculous that this functionality does not exist!

  • One more request for this function.  I am an avid Zwifter and Premium Strava member and I would like to load my photos captured on my PC of my Zwift events to my Strava page directly from my PC to the Strava webpage.  I would think that the huge and evergrowing community of Zwift riders would also welcome this functionality.  This request has been avidly made for a couple of years.  What is the agenda that is keeping Strava from making this happen?

  • My workflow to upload a photo to a website in 2017:

    1. Plug phone into laptop with a cable (Android phone with dev mode enabled)

    2. Run a script to copy the jpeg files from laptop into the DCIM folder on phone

    3. Run an app on the phone to re-scan media folders so the new files are visible to Strava app

    4. Plug Garmin into laptop, upload activity to Strava

    5. Quickly open Strava app on the phone, find the new activity and Edit it

    6. Attach the photos transferred previously and Save

    Sometimes the photos get added fast enough to appear in Relive.cc, sometimes they don't. There doesn't seem to be any workaround for that.

    Maybe there's a way to combine steps 1-3 and transfer wirelessly, but really, this whole thing is farcical.

  • Not everyone uses Android phone or iPhone. I can't believe this is still an issue. If you still refuse to make Windows app, at least allow us to upload photos from the website.

    You could even have adverts for all I care if I can upload a few photos.

     

    Obviously you will need to invest in quite a lot of storage or just set a limit per user.

  • The storage space is already there. It's possible to upload photo's with the phone app.
    They only need to make a file dialog on the site that stores the photo's in the same space the app does. 

    People have already offered to make this for free.
    Strava must have some kind of hidden agenda that prevents them from adding this basic feature.

  • Still hoping for this to come out.  I'd much rather have this than "certain athletes can make non-ride posts".

  • I capture my Pictures with a camera, not with the Smartphone because i want to have Pictures in perfect Quality. Now i have to syncronize the Pictures to the Smartphone to add them to strava. This could not be the future! Please add a Feature to the Website to upload Pictures! Thank you

  • "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” 

     

    You’re one of the most popular workout/running/biking apps in the app store. This is a horrible excuse. Frankly, the customer service for Strava needs to improve immensely, because it is by far the worst customer service of any iPhone app I’ve ever used.

  • I understand that you have lots of other developments but why not tell the users what they are. It may be that adding photos via the website might be favoured above other developments. Tell us what you are working on.

    I think this is self explanatory why we need this after all the other comments on this topic.

  • Keen to see this feature added. Just transferred photos from my camera to my PC. Now I need to upload to a cloud service, download to my phone, then add to the Strava app. Would be nice to avoid this hassle. No hissy-fit from me. I understand that you can't do everything all at once, and prioritisation will always be an issue.

  • Emailed myself some photos from Windows phone to PC.  Come to load them onto activity and not possible.  Surely this would take a developer < 1 day to add to the website.  Strange the functionality is missing unless it is there and well hidden when it is already there on mobile devices.

  • Agree.  Provide ability to upload pictures to an activity via the website.

  • Bump!! Rather annoying that the mobile app gets so much more focus than the website for functionality :(

    Another for the chorus asking for upload from the web site.  Windows Phone. No Instagram. Camera user. Stealing mate's photos. Plenty of reasons to have another way to load photos. Seems simple enough to me too, as a coder.

    I guess the question is - is this really not being done because of the technical upload piece?

    Or is it a server space issue? You would prefer not to have all of the photos (which are currently stored on Instagram's and other publicly facing servers) clogging up yours and forcing you to buy extra server space to store the images?

    Now if that's the reason and you are honest about it, maybe people would understand that it's a $ thing and not a technical issue. Considering how much of strava is a free service, I would be comfortable with that being the reason.

    Or maybe I'm just too cynical.

  • Simply adding one more voice to the team at Strava about the value being able to upload photos directly from a web browser would be to your users who don't use their phones to track their activity. Its a service i'd be happy to sign up for a Premium account for. Good luck with the coding and hope you can launch this option soon.

  • The requests from the member community for this functionality has been going on for years and I gave up about 3yrs ago trying to get it added but I thought I would check in to see if it has been added and obviously the answer is No.

    I am of the opinion of many others - especially those that pay for the service - that this should be a base service offered to all users.

    I work in IT Solution/Development and I could almost guarantee that of my guys could knock something up that functions in a week - of course it would need to be tested properly but that could be done in a few weeks too.

    My suspicion is that there are issues of cost to store all the photos, security to check that nothing bad gets uploaded but in this day and age storage is cheap so I really do not understand what the real issue is for Strava - especially since you can do this on the mobile app already!

    I saw an earlier comment from an official Strava person who said something along the lines that they were a small company and had to prioritise issues.

    Is this not a a serious issue being raised by its member base????

    Strava if you continue to NOT to listen to your member base you will remain a small company because members will leave and competitors will offer what you are not.

    Please get your act together and fix this and if you are struggling to technically implement this then get in touch, we have offices in most countries and I will get a consultant to come over free of charge for an initial assessment of the problem and they will offer you a solution.

  • Well, a year has passed and it still is not available. A bit ignorant from Strava people, if you ask me. Why should I keep paying you people money, if you don't even give us that option. Who do I need to sleep with, to get it finally done?????

  • I am a paying customer since years and I find it a "must have" upgrade. And it is from many years that it is on the roadmap...
