Upload image(s) to Imgur.com. When the uploading is complete a box will pop up displaying various urls for the image, which can be copied and pasted. Zenity and Curl are required software.

/home/$USER/Scripts/thunar-upload-to-imgur.sh -f %f

Under Appears if selection contains make sure Image Files is checked.

Change /home/$USER/Scripts/thunar-upload-to-imgur.sh to the path of the bash script, and change thunar-upload-to-imgur.sh to the name you give the bash script.

###Bash Script

I keep my bash scripts in a folder called “Scripts” in my personal directory. To create the bash script copy the script below and paste it into a text editor. Name the script: thunar-upload-to-imgur.sh Save it to the scripts folder you created. Make the script executable by opening up a terminal and navigating to the folder in which the script is stored. Type: chmod +x thunar-upload-to-imgur.sh and press Enter. The script will now work when used with Thunar Custom Actions.
