I just figured out how to get the 'image address' of a pic using Safari on iOS


quote:

Tap, and hold the image; then choose "copy," open a new browser window, and paste into the address bar (or in TD's case paste the link in the img window.)

Holy shit, I've used iOS since 2008 and I am only figuring this out now.

Until today, if I was on my iPhone and I wanted to post a pic from a web page, I would long press and save the picture to my phone and then upload to imgur app and then use that link to post the image here when making a post.

But there was this easy solution all along. My mind is blown...

You just "copy" the pic and it'll copy the img address

All this time I thought when you "copy" the picture, you are copying the actual image so that you can paste it directly in an email that you are composing or something. I had no idea that it would also copy the image URL. I feel so stupid...
