Reddit allows users to upload NSFW images from the desktop

Posted on

Reddit announced Thursday that users can now upload NSFW images from desktops in adult communities. The feature was already available in the social network’s mobile app.

The company made the announcement on the r/modnews subreddit and said the move will bring feature parity across platforms.

‚ÄúThis now gives us feature parity with our mobile apps, which (as you know) already have this functionality. You must set your community to 18+ if your community’s content is not safe for work (NSFW) in the first place,” the company said.

Reddit’s announcement comes days after Imgur said the image hosting platform will ban explicit photos from May 15. At the time, the company said explicit content posed a risk to Imgur’s “community and its business.” Banning this type of content would “protect the future of the Imgur community.”

Many of Reddit’s communities rely on Imgur’s hosting services. The social network that allows native NSFW uploads via desktop may be the most logical solution in the future.

Image hosting isn’t the only hurdle for NSFW communities. Last month, when Reddit announced it would charge money for its API, the company also said it will limit access to mature content available through its API. This would directly impact the experience of third-party Reddit apps. In yesterday’s announcement about desktop upload for NSFW images, Reddit staff said the company is discussing how to navigate this situation.

Christian Selig, the developer of the popular iOS Reddit client Apollo, said in a response that developers are willing to accept Reddit guardrails if they allow remote app users to access NSFW communities.
