Send images  Topic is solved

21 Feb 2018, 20:47

Is it possible to send a gif stored locally on the machine? (Sending the image to someone through an instant messenger) Or if that's not possible, can you copy a gif to clipboard? I have tried using the GDI+ library, but it would turn my .gif files into .png.

Hi,

I'm using Viber as one of my messengers (smartphone and PC), it has an API https://developers.viber.com/docs/api/rest-bot-api/ and can send/receive pictures.. maybe this is worth a try

Well my instant messenger is Discord, but I would like the script to work with as many instant messengers as possible, without using an api.

Hi,

challenging project you are aiming for - multiple messengers without any api.
I would try to realize that with/for one messenger, and then (after some weeks of testing, using it) I would expand that concept/idea to other messengers.

I do have an idea in mind, but I'm not sure I know how to explain it. Anyways, thanks for trying at least ;)
