How to get image URL?

Hmm..another simple tip for Blogspot user. This time, I'd like to show you how easy it is to get the image URLs in Blogger. As we know, all images that we've uploaded through the blog post was stored in Blogger database. And of course, you can delete them.

But why do you need the image URLs?

There are several reasons:-
  • To place the image permanently on your blog sidebar
  • To get the full size image (I used it in my tutorials section)
  • Use it for blog background image
  • Submit the URL to forum, email, comment box etc..
and so on..

As for example, I've upload my Gmail signature (image above). And this is what I got in the HTML mode:-

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="
"><img style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer;" src="
" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5145511924620891810" border="0" /></a>

As you can see, there are two image URLs above; red and blue.

When and how to use it?

If you want to submit the URL to forum, email or comment box, use the red one. Just place the URL directly to the forum textarea.

And if you want to use it as an image for your blog sidebar or background, use the blue one. To use it, simply paste it in this single line code:-

<img src="blue URL" />

See, it's easy right?

Other than that, the top reason why you should use the image in is that it has an unlimited bandwidth. It's different from your uploaded image in Google Pages, where it has a limited bandwidth.

I think that's all for now. Still working for my new blog template. Hehe..
