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.

    Would be willing to upgrade to premium for this functionality.

  • + 1 for the possibility to add nice pictures from the website (from a real camera with no internet connexion)

  • No pictures via the webesite since years, but there are enough resources to implement complete unnecessary 'Athlete Posts'. It's one of some reasons, why strava in my opinion is no serious platform for training.

  • There's been some discussion at Strava about making photo uploading via the website happen later in 2017. I'm tentatively marking this request as planned but please understand that we cannot make any promises. However, we'll do our best and I will keep everyone posted with more information if it becomes available.

  • WHY, after all these requests from Premium paying customers like me for almost ONE YEAR...

    DOES STRAVA CONTINUE TO DELAY ADDING SUCH SIMPLE FUNCTIONALITY?

    Just so you can farm our personal smartphone data with your app?

    Partner with a photo website like Google Photos, Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly, Cluster, or 500px.  At least, give us an ETA.

    I'm going back to basic service til then.

  • If there is an actual API (and not just a backend hook in the IOS/Android apps), then the community could add this feature themselves. 

     

    Common Strava, this is stupid.  You actively TOOK AWAY this feature from the web client when you added Instagram support a few years ago.  I realize that your web developers are excessively few versus your app developers at this point, and you are attempting to drive features there to make folks go premium, but not having a ubiquitous service offering makes me question getting (and keeping) premium.

  • Just became a NONPAYING user because of Strava' stubborn lack of web - not app - photo support posting...#FAIL

  • I have Windows Phone (unfortunately) and I'm not instagram user. Ability to upload photos from the web would be great. It is also not so much development effort if you support this feature already. ... or just add it to the strava API and I will code it myself :-) ...

  • Please add the ability to post photo's from a regular laptop browser. Many here do not use phones to add rides or photos. Thanks!

  • +1 Another premium member.  This can be a real pain and cost unnecessary time for a simple feature.  It takes a lot to get me onto a forum, let alone complain....

  • Scott Kidson: if it's a space issue, let me link an image from my own hosting or imgur then? Or hell, make it a perk of being a paid member.

    As a non iOS/Android user, who doesn't use instagram/etc... It's an annoyance to me to be sure.

  • Stupidly hard it would seem. :(

    Uploading images to social media is a standard key part of social media.
    Yet Strava seems to make such a basic functionality an exercise in hoop jumping whilst one's feets are tied together and wearing a clown costume with size 20 feet.  
    I'm a pro photographer, so pretty au fait with handling images. But rarely do I post photos on my strava rides because it's too much effort and palaver.

  • Blahblahblah, Strava...

    Hundreds of the same simple request from Strava members for 2 years - uploads from Internet browsers - and NOTHING IS DONE!  

    I have quit Strava premium, and am actively searching for a replacement service to recruit my friends away, because Strava has done NOTHING on this.

  • So we have all been leaving comments and hopefully voting to sort this and today I see this from Strava http://road.cc/content/news/228138-video-strava-asks-athletes-reject-image-conscious-social-media-selfies - #athletesunfiltered almost encouraging us to post photos raw and unfiltered ! Hope it is possible on all platforms !!!!!

  • Technically this sounds like something that is very acheivable without too much time and effort, as people continue to point out on here, as if Strava actually haven't realised it's theoretically quite easy to do. So that clearly isn't the problem. It does open up a world of pain in terms of storage, speed of the site, increased data transfer etc etc. Also, while the phone/app option does appear to limit you to uploading photos that have been taken at least during the time of the ride (I think), a web based option opens that up to any old image, which in turn runs the risk of Strava turning into a photo storage/sharing site (some people will upload 20 images of the cafe stop), which it was never designed to be. Plus there would have to be increased staffing to check the content so dodgy stuff doesn't get displayed to the world - unfortunately there are plenty of idiots who would enjoy doing that! That would all add to the cost. Strava will have a clear idea of the price at which people start dropping premium membership.

    Strava set out to be a social network for athletes, where you could monitor, share and improve performance. I didn't join Strava to share photos so I don't really understand that people are actually get angry about it and threatening to dump Strava.

    It would be nice to have but there are plenty of other photo sharing sites.

  • just weird, that something so obvious is missing. Actually more annoyed that I spent 10 minutes looking for a feature that I thought must be somewhere on the web site.

  • This and manual entries with a selected route needs to be added asap. Its great that you put effort in supporting the mobile plattform but most people do not use the phone for tracking the route as that depletes its battery (needed in emergencies). The phoneapp is mostly used for after-bike viewing, kudos, uploading with garmin connect to strava etc.

    If you want people to pay for premium access then "we are a small team and currently are prioritizing other projects" is not the way to go.What other projects are these?

  • There is no problem with technical solutions to add this feature. But there is problem with marketing/politics. They can to add this feature easily but they don't want to...
    I think so.

  • I just did a big everesting ride and would like to add some of the photos I took but whenever I try to do it on my Samsung S8 Strava stops working and crashes. Is my ride too big, surely not. Because I can't upload via my PC I'm stuck.

  • I too want to be able to upload photos from my pc. Obviously, it would be easy for Strava developers to add this feature. I think the issue that most are missing is that it'll take a lot of new storage capacity. All of the photos & videos uploaded need to be stored, and that costs money. However, I don't buy the excuse "we're just a small company". I personally know & ride with hundreds of Strava Premium members. I think the revenue stream is there to buy some more storage. I've been a Premium member for a few years, not so much because I need the Premium features (I use TP as well) but because I've wanted to support Strava's success. I'm at the point now of needing to see more rapid improvement and a better attitude toward paying customers before I'll renew my Premium membership.

    Unfortunately this doesn't work. I let my premium membership lapse over a year ago, and let Strava know I was doing this because the photo upload feature is missing. Sadly this doesn't seem to have had any affect. Strava, in case you are listening, I will restart my premium membership when web photo uploads are available!!
