How to add a photo to your blog comment

I’ve gotten a couple of requests to explain how to add a photo to a blog comment (particularly regarding this post). Here’s the scoop:

If your photo is already posted online somewhere (say, a photo-sharing site such as, you can get its filename by right-clicking the image (if you’re on a Mac, hit control and then click) and selecting “copy image location.” Then paste the filename into this bit of code and add it to your comment:

<img src=”FILENAME”>

For example, the image below (from the Petfinder homepage) is coded like so:
<img src= “”>

You can also send your photos to me at “blog (at)” and I’ll post them myself (eventually … I promise!). Make sense?
