Getting imgur Photo link from an imgur Album link

Sometimes Imgur creates an “album” that contains a single “photo”. The Blue Alliance website doesn’t know how to handle albums, so you must get the link to the photo instead.

You can tell an “album” link because it contains /a/ , like https://imgur.com/a/hHruz63

To get the photo link:

  1. Load the album link
  2. Right click the photo, “open image in new tab”
  3. This will load a URL link https://i.imgur.com/3peZftp.jpeg
  4. Delete the file extension .jpeg at the end and the subdomain i. before imgur.com
  5. This leaves just https://imgur.com/3peZftp , which is your imgur photo page link

That link can now be submitted to The Blue Alliance.
