Recently one of reader from ehowportal has asked question about image URL.Question was How Do I Create Url For an Image.
I am trying to use an image to link to my website. I have been going crazy. I get a box with nothing in it that does link to my page. Not sure what I’m doing wrong, I want to post image on website but I am not able to do it. How can i create url or image url for my photo that can be published on other site?
Well, the question is not clear, however I am trying to explain what I understand. I think she has uploaded image on other image sharing sites and then she wants to get direct link to that image. So that the same can be published somewhere else she wants. Here is the tutorial, how to create a url for your image.
Step 1 : Find the image you want to get link for. Say you want to get link from ehowportal logo at the top. Right click on the image and click on copy image location.
Step 2 : Now paste the link on your browser’s new tab. Paste the image URL there and press enter. Your image will be opened.
Step 3 : Now you have successfully copied image and you can share it wherever you need.
How to embed images on other websites?
Well, if you have copied image location or link, you can paste it wherever you want to show the image. Some of site would give direct option to upload images from URL. You can directly upload your images by pasting your site’s URL there. If some sites offer HTML and you have to paste HTML code for your image, here is the guide about inserting images on webpage using HTML.
<img src=”your image url.jpg“></a>
This is simple HTML code, you should have to replace “your image url.jpg” with your image URL. If you wish to create clickable image, where user will click on that image and they should be redirected to your website page, you can also do it by adding link to your image.
<a href=”your site url”><img src=”your image url.jpg”></a>
Now replace “your site url” with the url of your website and your image url.jpg with your image URL. Now publish the image. Your image will be clickable.
Where to upload images?
You can upload your images on free image hosting websites like flickr or imageshack. After uploading it will give you the URL to the photo. You can use anywhere you want.
If you are copying images from the source, you don’t know. Give proper credit to the image owner or get permission to use that picture. It will help you to avoid copyright issue in future.
