How To Get An HTML Code For Buttons/Images

There are many reasons why you might need an html code for an image. Perhaps you've created a button that you would like to share with others. Maybe you'd like to add larger photos to your sidebar. Whatever the reason, getting an html code for an image is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

How to get an HTML code for your photo/button:

1. Upload your image to Photobucket.

2. Go to the album that your image is in. Find and hover over the thumbnail of the image.

3. Copy the HTML code from the box that pops up. Most often, the code will automatically copy when you click on it. If it doesn't, you'll need to click on the code to put your cursor in the box, then triple click to highlight the entire code. There will be characters in the code that will not appear in the box, so be sure to copy the whole thing.

Voila! Now you have an html code for your image! There are several other online photo storage sites out there. I used Photobucket in this tutorial because it's what I am most familiar with. :)

*Updated* Hi Jen! Your next step is to get the url to your fb profile. Login and click on your name in the upper right hand corner. Once you see your profile page, copy the url (web address. Go to the Photobucket code for the image and replace the (a href) url with the FB url. Don't delete the img src url. Hope that helps! :)
