You right click the picture, go to properties, then highlight the address of the picture, the click copy.

Then I assume you paste it somewhere (like here on GPDO!). What if you just want to save it on your computer? How do you do that? :?

My question, do you just copy and paste pictures like this or do you need to save them in photo bucket before posting?

Thanks.

ChiliPros, if it is already on the internet, just paste the address here and wrap the Img tags around it. When oyou hit the quote button, above, you saw how it was done.

Be careful with this!! If it's hosted by someone other than you it's called 'leaching' and is considered very bad form. While most of the folks here probably won't care much there are some folks out there on the interwebs who get downright nasty about it.

To be safe, if you want to share an image you've found on the internet, save it locally (right click the image, save image as) and upload to your own photobucket account or other hosting provider...

Saving an image from the internet is copyright infringment unless the image owner gives you permission, or the site states its images are public domain.
The proper way is to provide a link to the image and include a short description of the image.

There are a lot of fair use scenarios, so it really depends on what you plan to do with the image once you download it on whether it's copyright infringement.

Not to mention they can change what the image is, remove the image or have the link do some nefarious things.

I love forum invasions that start off so innocent, like posting a picture of a cat and then switching the filename to something inappropriate...I have never done that before....

While you are correct, I try to look at it this way. Someone spent time and effort to make the image in question? Why not just ask them if you can use it and avoid any potential trouble. Fair use isn't very straight forward, and when the poo hits the fan it's usually settled in court. Why not just ask permission and avoid the issue all together.

Also if you already have it copied (right click-copy), you can go to the folder / location where you want the picture and right click paste.

edit- may depend on the browser you are using.
