I've just started a blog, and thought it would be useful to dump all those extra pictures which 'belong' in reviews. I used to try to have all my pictures linked on flickr, but then unintentionally deleted some which linked to reviews when making more space in my flickr account. So, I thought I'd use the blog and link for the extra pictures. Reading a thread in the Pattern review section, I noticed that quite a few people found it irritating to find themselves taken to a blog to look at the pictures, especially if they had to scroll to find them. Is there a way of getting a link to the image in the blog, so that anyone clicking on the link in PR gets to the image and not to a page of my surrounding waffle?

Sure, you can do that. Just upload your picture to your blog, then navigate to it in "Media" and find direct link to the picture. Post this link in PR review, people will see a picture alone, no blog post

petro - I am at wordpress and I right click on the image, click on "copy image location" then use the "http://" button here and paste the copied image location into it. Like this (I hope!):

blog picture

If I right click and use "copy link location" instead, it comes out like this:

blog picture

which is nice because you get the full size of the photo.

You should be able to click on "copy image" and paste it into the "image" button but I can't seem to do that right now. Maybe my computer and I need more coffee first.

I save mine to photobucket and directly link from there on reviews or my blog using the direct link.

Granted, I never go back to find pictures. Like everything else, I need to do some upkeep to all my links, blog and pictures.

Thanks Lena and Tourist, that's really helpful, I'm going to save your instructions so I can follow them next review I make. SewDucky, that's the problem with photo sites, I have made links to mine, then forgotten I linked to he photos and ditched them. PR storage isn't enough to keep them either.
