Preventing automatic upload of pictures to Strava

Please can you put a feature to IOS to have the ability to stop Zwift uploading pictures of your rides automatically to Strava.

cheers,

Hi,

In your Zwift settings there is an Image Uploading setting.

Options:

  • Always
  • Only my shots (i.e. when you have taken a picture yourself)
  • Never

Either of the bottom two will prevent the auto photo.

Paul.

You can obviously remove a pic from Strava itself by editing the ride.

Hi Paull,

There is no option for IOS users. See attached image.

You’re right, that’s strange.

Go to your Strava settings, choose Partner Integrations and then disable Zwift.

As a workaround (yup, Zwift has a lot of these!), you can always change the upload option for your ride photos before you save your ride. A bit tedious, but it would do the job.

I think the problem is the iPad version of Zwift does not have the image upload setting for whatever reason. Not sure why, but they should just add that option to the iPad version of the app. I always have to retroactively go into Strava to delete the photos.

Is there a reason why you don’t just de-select them at the end of your activity, before the ride is uploaded to Strava?

Can you actually do that on iPad? I can tap the image and remove the data elements, but didn’t see a way to remove the image on the closing screen. Maybe I missed it?

Good question. I generally use Apple TV, and haven’t paid much attention to the options at the end of rides on my iPad. But, on ATV there is either a green check or a red X under each photo indicating whether it will be uploaded, or not. Clicking on the photo will change from one to the other. Red X means ‘do not upload’. (Let me know if this works. I’ll also try to pay attention the next time I use the iPad for a ride.)

I’ll check again on my next ride, but I don’t remember seeing any obvious way to delete it from the closing screen of the ride on iPad. Would love it if there is one though, because that would be fine :slight_smile:

on Windows you just click on the image and it will get a red X

You can’t deselect the photo, the only option is to star the picture. Unsure what that does

You can’t upload fewer than one photo if you take any, though. Have to upload at least one.

I never tried to not upload a picture. Wow 6 years later and I learn this.

But in this case it’s not even if you proactively take a screenshot during a ride. It will automatically take a screenshot - so the behavior is… You do nothing relating to screenshots at all, the iPad automatically takes a screenshot at some random time (usually some silly time like during a rest interval or some time you really don’t need to share :)), then you do not get an option to not upload that random image it took to strava. Meaning you then have to go into strava and remove that image if you don’t want it there. Correct? This is on iPad specifically. So, two things then - it would be good for the ipad to have the setting to never auto-upload, and the second one would be to enable the ability to remove all the photos at the end of the ride just before uploading the stats to strava (like you can on Windows and Apple TV apparently).

I’ve always found on Apple TV that you at least one photo must be selected, you can’t unselect all.

But, as I mentioned, changing the setting in Strava is the easiest way to avoid it.

This is on iPad specifically. would be the same for IPhone as well

it would be good for the ipad to have the setting to never auto-upload - yes, this would be the Must have requirement

second one would be to enable the ability to remove all the photos at the end of the ride just before uploading the stats to strava - this would be the should have requirement
