Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

Step-by-step instructions to put a picture in a comment on Putting a picture in a comment isn't that hard with some simple HTML.

How do I put a picture into a comment I post on someone's account? I see others doing it, but I can't figure out how.

I get this question a lot, so I opened my own myspace account, and enlisted the help of a buddy to try it out. It's actually not that hard.

Caveat: I'm not a MySpace guru, so there might be easier ways. That being said, this wasn't too bad, and most importantly, it worked.

In order to post a picture into a comment, that picture must already be uploaded and on the internet somewhere. As you've seen, there's nothing about posting a comment that talks about uploading or anything like it, so you must already have done this.

"In order to post a picture into a comment, that picture must already be uploaded and on the internet somewhere."

The easiest way, of course, is to upload the picture into your own account.

  • Upload your picture: After you sign in to MySpace, hit the Upload / Change Photos link underneath the big Hello, name!. Naturally, make sure that you follow their guidelines for allowed uploads: .gif or .jpg files and less than 600k in size.

  • Locate your picture's URL: Go to your own URL (for example, and click on "View More Pics". The picture you just uploaded should be there. Click on the image to view the full picture. Now, right click on that photo, and select Properties. You should see something like this:

    Image Properties

    Select the Address: (URL) with your mouse (click at the beginning of "http", and drag until the entire URL is selected), and copy that to the clipboard. In this example the URL would be "". You can dismiss the properties dialog when done.

  • Make your comment: Go to the MySpace page where you want to leave a comment and press Add Comment. Now, in that comment, where you want that picture, enter this:

    <img src="" />

    IMPORTANT replace the URL (the "") in this example with the URL you copied from the properties dialog above to your own picture.

The picture doesn't actually have to be on MySpace. In fact, it can be anywhere on the internet, as long as it's accessible by some URL.

That's all there is to it.

If it doesn't work, I expect the most common cause for failure to be the copy of the URL to the picture. Make sure you copy it exactly.

Try uploading it to your myspace account instead of trying to reference it from shutterfly.

What if I want to put into a comment a picture that is from a password protected website like Ofoto? Is there a way to do this or do I have to upload the pic to somewhere like myspace?

March 23, 2006 9:17 AM

You'll need to upload it to a non-password protected place. Myspace seems the right place for this.

April 27, 2006 4:51 PM

thanks i was looking everywhere to find out how to do this....and it worked!

April 28, 2006 1:30 PM

So how do you get that address if you can't right click? If you are a mac user for instance, "right click" pretty much means nothing. I use a PC so your instructions worked perfectly! But my roommate uses a mac and is pretty frustrated. What to do?

April 28, 2006 2:27 PM

I'm mostly PC myself (my new Mac's in the shop ... seriously), but I believe Command-Click is the Mac equivalent. Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

April 28, 2006 7:19 PM

what if you have a mac...there's no right click

April 30, 2006 8:16 PM

was there ever an answer to the question "if your using a mac and there is no right click, to get into the properties menu" what do you do to put pictures in comments on myspace pages?

May 1, 2006 2:37 PM

thanks, very helpful!

May 2, 2006 11:12 AM

June 1, 2006 12:34 AM

To put a picture...First,get your free account at a picture from your hard drive onto your photo album.Copy the link from the "tag"section and paste it on the comment box(along with your comment)...and..presto!You have a picture with the comment(^v^).It's very simple.

June 2, 2006 3:06 AM

Wow dude you're very cool. This helped me tons. Keep up the work =]

June 3, 2006 7:27 AM

Your an idiot. You're saying I have to upload every picture to my pictures, before I can repost it to someone else's comment box? There's not a simple html code I can use to link it directly to the url i have? Thanks for overcomplicating things.

June 3, 2006 8:45 AM

If you actually read the article, you'll notice that what's posted in a comment is just a URL to a picture that can be anywhere on the internet. In fact the article that you apparently didn't read says "anywhere on the internet" at least twice.

June 5, 2006 7:25 PM

I read the article and I thankyou I will try it on MySpace but I wanted to know what are url's
ending in .torrent I am trying to use Bit Torrent I paid 37.00 for and it asked for url I tryed a few things but it says cannot find url. Thanks K

Greg, all you have to do is that do that 12 times,
upload your picture at or any image upload service, and put the image url in between these quotes:

do that 12 times with different urls.

I followed your directions, and I made sure I had the EXACT URL, however, the pic doesn't show up for everyone on the comments page on myspace, until they copy the url address of the image when they click on the 'X' (where the image should be) and hit properties, go to it in a new browser, then back to the comments page on myspace. Do you know why this is happening?

I followed thr above instructions but my comment posted just the URL not the picture. I know I copied it correctly because if you cut and past the URL you can see the picture. Help. Thanks

September 3, 2006 5:29 PM

September 15, 2006 6:17 PM

It seems that the reason it won't upload is because the

alt="" />

won't fit. At all. It just cuts off at "jpg." And I'll be dammed if there isn't another way of fitting it in!

September 15, 2006 6:19 PM

Sorry, that comment was meant for "how do I put a picture in a picture's caption box?" My mistake.

you have to use a site like photo bucket and load your pic to it then use the copy and paste option and transfer it.

September 18, 2006 6:27 PM

if all else fails just message someone there that has done it and ask them. i am sure they will help you.

how do i put a picture on my myspace headline?

September 24, 2006 9:37 PM

i did it and all that comes up is ..

September 24, 2006 11:59 PM

This method works but I think it is far too compilcated for the average computer user. The most simplistic way that I use and think just about anybody can use is All you have to do is upload your photos and it gives you the tag you need. All you have to do is copy and paste the script into your comment, in your bio, or where ever.

October 1, 2006 12:48 PM

November 20, 2006 6:11 PM

i actually founnd a better way. you want to make a new account on then up load you photos on there. then after you do you should see you picture at the bottom of the screen and under it 3 different tags with stuff you can cut and paste next to it. you choose the "tag" one, just cut and paste that in the comment box and it will but it on there. good luck ya'll

November 21, 2006 11:58 AM

thanks leo

November 23, 2006 10:43 PM

for nils (nov 22) For Macs when you get the pic instead of right clicking. hold down control and click. then choose "copy image address" and follow the same instructions..( The control button works for most "right click" options)

EVERYONE PLEASE - read the article carefully... particularly this statement:

"if this doesn't work the most common cause is not doing it exactly right."

Two dots happens if your HTML is bad or incomplete (for example the /> was left off). The most common cause is that the URL you are trying to use is TOO LONG. You MUST use a shorter URL. Make sure that EVERYTHING explained above fits in the caption box ... if it doesn't, it's too long. Make it shorter.

I'm closing comments on this article, since it's just repeats of this exact same issue.

UPDATE: I've added this article for those of you having problems with URLs that are too long:

January 24, 2009 5:17 AM

What to do? my numbers of photo comments doesn't show up it's says I have 0 comments when I really have 3 comments.

February 1, 2009 9:47 AM

hey,i wanted to post a comment but there is not a link to it. it only says,"post comment but you press on it and it doesn't do nothing!

February 5, 2009 9:44 AM

When I post the comment, it says terms of violation service. it wont let me do it.

June 1, 2009 12:51 AM

when i copy an url to one of the boxes (e.g. about me)existing in profile edit section, it really works, that is, my profile shows the image associated with the url I copy. However after a while, when i open my profile page, instead of showing this image, a broken url shows on where the picture should be!!! Help!!!
