I’ve had numerous requests to build-in the ability to add images to activities from the browser rather than having to use the native phone/tablet app. It can often be a pain having to transfer photos to the phone before adding them to the activity or a complete blocker for people that don’t use an iOS or Android device at all. A while back I added the ability to add your 3D and 2D profile images direct to your activities using the button on your Activity Details page so I thought it was about time to open it up a little further.
Update (18th Jan 2018) – Strava have released their full implementation of activity image management in the website so this one is a bit obsolete already 🙂
With a bit of luck Strava will add the ability to add pictures in their website in the near future which will make this VeloViewer feature redundant but until then hopefully it will be of some use.
You’ll find the new buttons in the Recent Activities section on your Summary page. Just press the button, pick your image and it’ll be added on. If you want to add another image then just press the button again.
Important: If you want to remove images then you’ll have to head to your Strava app.
From my short bit of testing I can see that when I upload an image using my code that, when viewed in Strava, the image is ever so slightly sharper (less compression) than the same image uploaded through the Strava app. Most people won’t notice the difference though! The max image size in Strava is 2048px so any image you load that is larger than that (most photos are much bigger) will be scaled down to 2048 before uploading.
