How to put your Picasa Images on Craigslist

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:

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-zaG53KetqRM/T67jFLshMRI/AAAAAAAACAo/1BahY7bwcB8/s128/CWD%20logo%20circle%20250×250%20pixel.png

 

See how this ends in a .png suffix? That’s how we know it’s an image file.

 

Step 3: Write the Image Code
