Last week I posted an article about helping you on Craigslist. One of the questions I was asked was how to put Picasa images on Craigslist. This is a tricky one, but I’ll get you through it.
Step 1: Go to Picasa
Picasa is tricky because you have to right click on the image to see what the real file is. Let’s take my logo image on Picasa for a moment.
Here’s the link: https://picasaweb.google.com/106273101224393545862/May122012
While this may show you the image, it’s not the image file – it’s a page. You can tell because there is no file type associated with it. Ex. It doesn’t end in .jpg, .gif, ..png, etc.
Step 2: Right Click the Image
In order to find the file type we have to right-click the image and look under properties.
In my example the file location is:
See how this ends in a .png suffix? That’s how we know it’s an image file.
Step 3: Write the Image Code
Now we can follow the usual steps. Click here to go to Step 2 in putting an image on Craigslist.
