Often when clicking on a thumbnail in a contest gallery or in a review, the photo takes you to the whole blog of the person posting the review. While it is fun to read the blog, if you are just trying to look at the garments it means you have to wade through just for a quick look.
And as someone said, this makes problems for those trying to look from their phone.

There are several threads here about getting photos from Flickr, etc. But if your photos have been uploaded straight to your blog from your computer and you haven't signed up for a Flickr account you can't access the stored photo.

So, here is a quick tutorial on how to get the link to the URL on the photo which is already on your blog. (I am not covering how to make the photo smaller before loading it to your blog - others can explain that better!)

In the first place I find it easier to have more than one window open on my PC.
Go to your blog post with the photo you want to link to. Right click on the photo. You should get a box come up that looks like this.

click 3 times on the B>Address (URL)< which will highlight it. Then right click and choose Copy OR use the shortcut 'ctrl C' to copy that URL. The bottom of the box will have buttons that say 'OK' Cancel and Apply. Choose Cancel or OK

Now go to the review you are writing and paste that URL into the box for the review that says 'Finished Garment URL?' You can right click and choose Paste or you can use the shortcut 'ctrl V'.

When you have finished writing the review it will ask for a photo from your computer. This isn't the same as the photo with the URL from your blog.

I hope this helps! It may be a bit different if you aren't using Microsoft Internet Explorer or if you are on a different blogging platform. I use Blogger, but I know that the URL for images on WordPress can be selected the same way.

Thanks Sandi - I usually just click on the photo in my blog then go to the top and copy the url of the photo rather than the url of my blog. Hope that is not causing any issues for anyone.

Hi Tourist,
Looks like that works - I went to your profile...some of your review photos seem to go to photobucket or flickr. Some don't show up in your review gallery, but you can still click on the camera and go to a photo.

The new Blogger view of enlarged photos that show them on a black background doesn't have the URL of the photo in the top of the browser bar. So, some people wouldn't be able to find the URL of the photo that way.
