As the title suggests, the answer is an image.

More specifically, you have to find the 7 character long imgur ID for the image:

imgur.com/□□□□□□□

Each character can be any letter A-Z (case-sensitive) or a number 0-9.

These are 7 little puzzles you have to solve, each corresponding to one character in the image URL:

1st character:
enter image description here

2nd character:
enter image description here

3rd character:
enter image description here

4th character:
enter image description here

5th character:
enter image description here

6th character:
enter image description here

7th character:
enter image description here

Good luck!

P.S. I'm not that familiar with the tags, so feel free to suggest edits :)

The image is ...

... the one with id J3gt6dw:

Super!

(The image was first found by Silenius. My first guess had the t wrong.)

1st character:

J — Converting to digits with A1Z26 gives a sum of 10. Converting back yields J.

2nd character:

3 — Highlight the cells in a grid that has rows and columns labelled from J to N. The first letter is the column, the second is the row. The highighted cells show the digit 3.

3rd character:

g — The layout shows a column on the keyboard. A1Z26 means that the top letter is T, the bottom letter is B. The letter is a G.

4th character:

t — The missing piece of the grid that i covered by the arrow tile looks like a capital T. This was found by young_nectar and also confirmed by the OP.

5th character:

6 — Conerting with a1Z26 gives SIX, or the digit 6.

6th character:

D — This looks like arithmetic with roman numbers: −1 + 10 − 5 = 4. The roman number for 4 is IV, which isn't a single letter. We need a small letter here, so I'm guessing A1Z26 again, which would be D.

7th character:

w — The missing digits are 23. Converting to a letter via A1Z26 gives W.

    $\begingroup$ Well done, you got 6/7 correct :) $\endgroup$ – Gintas K May 8 '17 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. Still no ide why the 4th is a t, though. Is it supposed to mean "top"? $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 8 '17 at 14:58
  • $\begingroup$ The square is meant to cover the part of the grid, which looks like 'T' $\endgroup$ – Gintas K May 8 '17 at 15:08

    $\begingroup$ Oh! That's neat. (As was the puzzle, by the way.) $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 8 '17 at 15:54

    $\begingroup$ @AlwaysConfused: A1Z26 means to assign a numerical value to each letter according to its position in the alphabet: A is 1, B is 2 and so on until Z is 26. It works both ways: You can turn letters to numbers and vice versa. Closely related is the concept of AZ sum: Sum all A1Z26 values of a word, for example the AZ sum of TEA is 20 + 5 + 1 = 26. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 17 '17 at 16:13

Final answer:

http://imgur.com/J3gt6dw

Solutions:

The arrows indicate whether the character is uppercase or lowercase. If there is no arrow, the character is a digit.

1st character:

A + B + C + D = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10 = J

2nd character:

3 (due to M Oehm)

3rd character:

g (due to M Oehm)

4th character:

Brute forcing J3g_6dw allows us to find that the 4th character is t.

5th character:

19 9 24 = SIX = 6

6th character:

-I+X-V = -1+10-5 = 4 = d

7th character:

1 [2 3] 4 5 6 clues the 23rd letter, w.

  • $\begingroup$ The answer is correct. Still need an explanation for 4th character :) $\endgroup$ – Gintas K May 8 '17 at 14:17

    $\begingroup$ Also, the first letters of title forms an anagram of ASCII $\endgroup$ – Techidiot May 8 '17 at 14:36

    $\begingroup$ @Silenus For your reference, the explanation for the 1st character has an extraneous digit (probably just got excited while typing, because the conclusion was correct). $\endgroup$ – Brian J May 8 '17 at 14:52

The 4th character

Is a 't' because the lowercase symbol (down arrow) is placed on the vertex that forms a 'T'. Uppercase T
