Can someone who uses Safari answer: how do you find an image's URL. No right click/copy image addr

Don't know the specific hardware. Could be mac, ipad, phone, not sure. Someone asked in the 'how to post images on DU' thread.

2. I tried to find something like that! Thank you!

It's good but doesn't answer the question, sadly!

3. If you are referring to videos

There is a little arrow at the top right, click that, it will show copy. Take to the board,click, it will come on.

For articles, click the URL at the top of the page. I am not good at partial articles. Maybe some one else can help.

4. No, not articles or pages or videos.... still photo images. In Windows you right click and you see

copy image url, etc. The person can't do the same w/safari.

10. On still pictures I hold my stylus

On the picture, it comes up, copy, share or add to pictures, choose the one you want.

Holding down the control key while clicking image brings up a menu.

6. Posting from my iPad...

Mac:

Hold Control key down, click image, select 'Copy Image Address'

Mobile device:

Press and hold image, select copy, paste into DU post
(Sometimes you first need to paste that into the address bar of a new tab to get the image URL in older iOS versions, then copy and paste that into the DU post.)

BTW - I highly recommend people get the iCab Mobile browser for iOS devices (I think it costs two dollars). There is a 'Copy Address (Photo)' option when pressing and holding.

9. I should add that some sites write their code to make copying images/image URLs next to impossible.

So it may not seem to work for particular websites – and some websites don't serve up images in the normal way (e.g. Facebook), which means an image address obtained may not work as intended when copied elsewhere.

I wish they would make things less complicated.

I use cmd V to past it in. Comes out with the whole URL but when viewed the image is there
