How To: Copy Image URL?

An image's web address, or "image URL", is just the internet address that takes you to the image itself. Every website and product listing has a page URL (, for example), and typing it into the URL bar at the top of your web browser takes you to the website or to a page with a product listing, like the image below.

To upload a product's image to Wish, we need its image URL. Image URLs lead to the image's own webpage:

Here's how to get an image's URL:

  1. Go the webpage the image is on. 
  2. Make sure you click on the image to ensure it is no link. 
  3. For PC's, right-click, and for Macs, hold down the control (Ctrl) and click on the image itself.
  4. A menu of options should appear (see below).

Getting the Image URL depends on your web browser:

  • In Google Chrome (shown above), select "Copy Image URL". 
  • In Safari, select "Copy Image Address". 
  • In Internet Explorer, select "Properties." Then, copy the address under "Address (URL)". 
  • In Mozilla Firefox, select "Copy Image Location."

Once you have copied the image URL, you can paste the link and upload to Wish! Make sure that your image URL begins with "http://" and not "https://" as we cannot upload the latter to Wish. If if it starts with "https://," you can simply remove the extra "s" in the image URL.

If you want to make sure you have the correct image URL (and not the webpage URL), paste it into the URL bar at the top of your browser. Press "Enter" to see if you receive just the image itself.

Tip: If your images don't exist online, you can upload them to an image-hosting site like imgur or Photobucket first and then get the image URL from there.
