API Version 1

Imges API v1 allows to upload pictures as guest to Imges. The API is pretty much the same as the API from our previous Imges script and will be used during the transition to the future API v2.

API Call

Request Method

API v1 calls can be done using the POST or GET request methods but since GET request are limited by the maximum allowed length of an URL you should prefer the POST request method.

Request URL

https://imges.link/sharexapi/1/(action)/ (if this doesn't work, then try removing the end "/")

Parameters

  • key The API v1 key is nCuBPgNYnHjheiyuXtnH77LrERQrLK44vDrY6HFG
  • action What you want to do [values: upload].
  • source Either a image URL or a base64 encoded image string. You can also use FILES["source"] in your request.
  • format Sets the return format [values: json (default), redirect, txt].

Example Call

GET https://imges.link/sharexapi/1/upload/?key=nCuBPgNYnHjheiyuXtnH77LrERQrLK44vDrY6HFG&source=http://somewebsite/someimage.jpg&format=json

Note: Always use POST when uploading local files. Url encoding may alter the base64 source due to encoded characters or just by URL request length limit due to GET request.

API Response

API v1 responses will vary depending on the format parameter:

  • json Display all the image uploaded information in JSON format. [default]
  • txt Returns the image direct URL in text/plain format.
  • redirect Redirects to the image viewer URL.

When using JSON the response will have headers status codes to allow you to easily notice if the request was OK or not. It will also output the status_txt and status_code properties.
