    $\begingroup$ While the tags are pretty strong hints what to do, puzzles are generally more fun if you don't have to guess what your goal is. (Exceptions possible.) you could improve the puzzle and its reception by adding a few "The task is to..." Lines at the bottom. Only if this would totally spoil you puzzle should you 'just throw it out' without anything. (And in such a case, the enigmatic-puzzle tag would become appropriate.) $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Jun 22 '16 at 5:56

    $\begingroup$ steganography tag is inappropriate ! It says : "Hidden messages concealed in otherwise unsuspicious pictures" but a duck picture will always be suspicious to me $\endgroup$ – Fabich Jun 23 '16 at 10:10

    $\begingroup$ please make sure that you can decode the image that you get when you right click and select save image as. As qwewqa notes, imgur compresses images, so you need to make sure this is still solvable. $\endgroup$ – micsthepick Jul 17 '17 at 5:28
