    500px and image URL

    Hi Guys,

    I just started a 500px account and tried to upload an image by URL to the New Photogrpahers CC forum but I was not able to put in a valid image URL for the forum to understand. This is the URL below:



    http://500px.com/photo/74673735/dang...-nicholas-chai

    Anyone know of a way to add images to threads for images that are hosted on 500px?

    Cheers.

    not sure how to find it, but you need to find a URL to the photo that ends in .jpg. Usually this is done by right-clicking and looking at the image info, etc, but 500px disable right-click and replace it with a copyright statement. As the owner of the image you might be able to access extra menu items etc that include a link.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    Nicholas, you need to go to your image on 500px and then select the "embed" option at the top right hand corner of the page as in the screen grab below.





    When you have selected the embed symbol, your image will pop up as a separate view and you then right click on it and select "copy image location"

    You then paste that location into your post here and then "wrap" the url with [img] ----- [/img] and you will then have

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    thanks Andrew.

    To show you what your final posting should look like before you post it to AP, and following on from Andrew's comments on using [img] tags
