According to this Imgur help page, it should be. Due to privacy concerns, EXIF data/metadata is removed on upload. There is no setting available to retain the data. According to this post over on Meta, the meta data is indeed removed. On the side note, I would also like to point out that imgur will strip the EXIF data once the image is uploaded ...

Copying images without permission may be a copyright violation. The person who creates an image (or a piece of text or music) owns that work and has the right to decide how and when it is used, including where and when it can be copied and distributed. There are numerous factors must be considered to figure out whether copying and posting of an image is ...

I had someone run into this on another site and when I investigated, it appears that Stack Exchange's relationship with imgur.com (the image hosting service that Stack Exchange uses) does not allow for images greater than 2MBytes in size. Source (sadly, this was the best I could find at the time): "For security reasons, framing is not allowed; click OK ...

You'll have to use the appropriate markup, or wait until the feature is implemented. The mobile app currently does not support adding photos, at least not that I'm aware of. The markup is: ![Image description][1] [1]: link to image Example: Sample image http://w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10 This functionality has been added to the Android app. When editing ...

We could suborn the Balsamiq mockup tool that's used on UX Pros: It's already integrated into Stack Exchange. Cons: It would require some configuration to remove a fair few elements we wouldn't need (menus, buttons etc.) It can only produce 2D drawings, not 3D models.

This is hardly a gray area: copying images from other sites is a violation of copyright. Pinterest gets away with it, mostly, via slight of hand since every image links to the source. Look up The Berne Convention and "fair uses" for more background on this, along with the DMCA for servers hosted in the USA.

If you can copy the image it's better to upload it to Stack Exchange's imgur account as that way we can be sure that the image will always be available. Otherwise, if the current location of the image changes then the link will become useless. If you are copying an image you should acknowledge the source. If the site explicitly forbids the copying of ...

I've used the free tool called SketchUp. This originated via Google but can now be downloaded via the new integrated relationship between Google and Trimble. Here is the download link: http://sketchup.google.com/intl/en/ This 3D drawing tool takes some time to get used to and it is definitely recommended that one walk through the very good tutorials in an ...

Here's a userscript that provides an improved upload dialog with resizing/linking options. https://stackapps.com/q/3507/10098

Yes, and it's been down intermittently a few times today. The most recent report about it on Meta Stack Exchange appears to be the Q&A Is stack.imgur currently down?, where an employee notes in the comments that: I don't have an update on this other than being more than a little angry with the state of things and that I'm working with Imgur to ...

I've used CoSketch to produce garish illustrations for a few posts, like this. But since it's really a collaborative whiteboarding app, it's nowhere near ideal for architectural renderings: No auto-align for what should be parallel lines. No grid to help with sizing. Draw your own size indicators. Or not. The colors - my eyes - oy. No support for dotted/...

I prefer paper and pen and a "scanner" app to take a picture with a smart phone/tablet like I did with this answer. You can upload to imgur directly using the imgur app. Pros: low friction one method for both normal pictures and diagrams the needed apps are useful for things other than stack exchange not restricted by tool's capabilities so I can draw ...
