Yes, though with some of those sites the first link they give you is the whole page with lots of ads and other things. That's why they don't work when they try to attach them here and I have to fix them by first going to that link and clicking on it to bring it up in a popup window and then right clicking on it and selecting View image. Then it usually brings up the image alone in it's own window and you can get the "real" url of the image alone from the address bar.

I don't know. I suppose so, though I don't know if MATLAB is the best language for that sort of task. You might want to write something in Visual Studio.

Thanks for your advise. I would try to use some other language to complete it

Since IMGUR uses REST based API you can do it in MATLAB.
Best way to start is trying to replicate the Python library: IMGUR Python.
