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.

    Why?

    People have been asking for this for years now in many more threads like this.

  • I'm now going on about 40 days without renewing my premium subscription, waiting for this feature to be implemented.

  • I download photos from my phone to computer both to clear the phone's memory and so that I can edit photos on a full size screen (v. pinch and zoom on a tiny screen with my reading glasses).  I also purchase digital downloads of official race photography.  Being able to upload a photo via web interface just seems like internet standard, I was surprised not to find it here.  Make it a feature only for paid members if you must; I would certainly become a paid member for it.

  • +1 for the feature to upload from a laptop. I've just taken to cycling with a 4/3rds camera, much better images than any smartphone out there, and now have to transfer the images to my phone (luckily I can do this via wifi on both devices) then to strava from the phone. How crap is that! I want to take my sd card out of the camera and upload it directly to strava, how hard can that be to sort out Strava? 

    Come on!

  • This thread is almost a year old.  It's clear they have given up on this.  So here's an idea:  Every body here needs to start a new thread...every single day.  Dominate the community with the same question from 20+ different people.  This will force them to address it.

  • Adding another comment to this request.  I could not find a way to add a photo from a browser so I searched the topic and found this thread.  Unbelievable that this is still not supported yet.  Strava, please add ASAP.  Thank you.

    (Sardonically you can add a photo here to these comments on a support website but not to an activity!)

  • I am voting with my dollar. If Strava is unwilling to take care of this simple request from the masses. I will not longer have a premium account.  The dollar always wins in the end.

  • You're not that small of a company, and this is the easiest feature to add. So easy, it flags the potential for an affirmative intention not to allow it. You worried about buying and managing storage space with increased activity upload sizes?

  • They say it's coming. But that was nearly a month ago. In the meantime we've had a whole load of new changes which, as far as I can see, no-one has been asking for (unlike this chain, which has been going on for a very long time)... If it's not here by Christmas, I'm quitting. Maybe if enough other people say the same we might get somewhere...

  • I cannot believe something as basic as uploading a photo to a activity through the website is *still* not there on the website.

  • Strava's logic in not adding this basic feature is astounding considering how elaborate the geo-tracking and stats gathering there is in doing things like leaderboards for segments in augmented reality games.

  • As a 5+ year premium member. Please add the function to add pics from the Strava Website.  You do know that some of us use a GPS to download our data.

  • This feature still hasn't been added? Strava is ignoring the voice of their customers, which is quite frustrating.

  • One thing that irks me is "religious" dogmatic stances on things in the computer world that people hold onto for some theoretical reason, and simply will not change. Examples abound from Apple, for instance, who would never make a button with more than one mouse because Jobs or Ivy or whoever insisted on some sort of theoretical purity, even as Windows supported multi-button mice and it was extremely handy. Apple's intransigence on issues like this is the stuff of legends.

    So, I wanted to attach a photo of my new bike to a ride this week. I had the photo on my computer, and I thought no sweat, I'll just log in to Instagram and then upload it, and then sync the activity in Strava, which will go out to Instagram and grab the photo. So I logged in to Instagram via web page and discovered that Instagram can't upload photos through its web app on a PC. So I installed the Instagram Windows 10 app from the MS store (I hate those apps, and have almost none of them on my machine). Guess what? Instagram's app on Windows cannot upload photos to your Instagram account! This is one of those face-palm moments where you dig out the old cliche: INSTAGRAM, YOU HAVE ONE JOB! Yes, an app for a photo upload social media site cannot upload photos from a PC. I can only guess that the Instagram founders have this demi-religious dogma that insists that what their service is about is enabling people to communicate spontaneously with each other through images from their mobile devices. And a PC isn't mobile, so you can only view photos, write comments, etc. OH MY GOD. Honestly, some of these stick in the mud attitudes.

    So I uploaded the photo from my PC to my phone, logged into Instagram from my phone, then manually selected and uploaded it to Instagram. Then I got back on my PC, got back into that activity on Strava, and manually forced a resync. Finally the photo showed up. I believe I read somewhere that a Strava bigwig was also an Instagram big wig, so I have this sneaking suspicion that this whole time Strava photo uploading was gimped on a PC over a stupid religious "we want people to think of us as something they do from their phone" argument back in the day, and they've just been sticking with it ever since. Finally reasonable minds in the company prevailed, realizing that you cannot force everyone to use the Strava app on their phones to record all their rides because plenty of people vastly prefer to use separate devices like a Garmin to record their ride, and then upload them through their PC. This is the reality, and they finally, years and years into this whole thing, have bowed to that.

    Only we're still not there yet. Just a few more weeks. It'll happen. Maybe it would happen quicker if so many people didn't proudly announce they'd turned off Premium because Strava didn't do something they really wanted. He Strava: I'm on premium, and I'm not turning it off even though you guys still can't upload photos from a PC in late 2017. I'm keeping it on because you guys need the money to pay the people who a few weeks ago were only a few weeks from having this done. I hope they get it done soon, but even if they don't, I'm not going to come on here and announce that I'm going off Premium again over it. I appreciate all the other functionality I get through Strava, and that's worth something to me, and so I want to support you. Still, if this whole "hey I have an idea, let's do an Instagram and try to force our users to use our service the way we want them to use it, and not the way they want to use" thing is ultimately the reason this still doesn't work, then I shake my head in disgust. I don't use Apple stuff to this day because I just couldn't swallow some of the decisions Apple made held onto religiously, I hate Instagram for being this way, and I don't want to think of Strava as being of this same attitudes. Let users use the service you provide the way users want to use it. If you're going to be multi platform, then be multi platform, and not gimp one platform to try to force users into the preconceived notion you guys have of how you envision customers using your service.

    Ok, there's my rant for the day. You know what? I feel a little better already. Thanks Strava!

  • Please update the official statement about the estimated release date. (7 weeks ago it was a few weeks. I can imagine the complications came up but it's better to inform users about the delay than keeping silence.)

  • Just more shit from Strava. No ability to change units, no ability to upload photos from a real computer. Why do I pay for this...

  • Commenting to support this feature being added. I wrote in another thread that I record rides with a Garmin, and take photos with a digital camera. My current workflow is to send the pictures to myself, save them to my phone, and then add them in through the Strava iOS app. A bit cumbersome and a little ridiculous. Not everyone uses their phones for capturing the ride, snapping pictures on Instagram, etc. etc.

    Glad that 'Cover' photos (i.e. 'default' picture for a ride) will be integrated soon (thanks, Strava team!), but being able to add from a desktop seems much more elementary than that feature.

    Yes, many people can do that; I can do that with my Android phone. But it is a few extra, unnecessary steps. And it's not so easy for people who don't have a device supported by the Strava mobile app (it's downright impossible, in fact!)

    The larger point is that Strava could easily fix this issue but for some reason they stubbornly refuse to do so, despite many Premium members asking them to do so. It says to me no one should be paying Strava anything if they couldn't care less about the concerns of their paying users.

  • +1 from a premium member. I have essential tremors, meaning that most of my photos are blurry at best. So I have to take dozens of the same photo to get a result. Uploading from the phone is nearly impossible not to mention trying to figure out which one(s) are actually worthwhile.
