Are you a Mac user looking for a reliable way to copy image addresses? If so, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we’ll go over how to easily copy image addresses on Mac computers.

When you need to get the address of an image, it can be tricky to figure out how to do it. Fortunately, there are several ways you can go about copying an image address on Mac.

The first option is to use Google Images. Go to and search for the image you’re looking for. Once you find the image, click on it, and in the right panel, click ‘More’ followed by ‘Share’. Under ‘Click to copy link’, click on the URL and it will be copied onto your clipboard.

The second option is to use Safari or Chrome when browsing websites for images with URLs that end in .jpg or .png file extensions. Right-click on the image and select ‘Copy Image Address’ from the drop-down menu that appears. This will copy the URL of the image onto your clipboard so that you can paste it anywhere you need it to go.

If you prefer using Firefox as your web browser instead of Safari or Chrome, there is a slightly different way of copying an image address on a Mac using this browser. When viewing an image with a URL ending in .jpg or .png file extension, tap at the bottom right corner of the photo and then under ‘Tap to copy link’ tap on the URL again and it will be copied onto your clipboard automatically.

We hope that this blog post has been helpful in showing how easy it is for Mac users to quickly copy an image address from any website they visit by following one of these four methods detailed above!

Copying a Picture Address

To copy a picture address, you need to first open the picture in your browser or an image viewer. Once the picture is open, you can access the picture’s URL by right-clicking on the image and selecting “Copy Image Address” (or similar wording depending on your browser). This will copy the URL of the image, which you can then paste into a new window or tab to open the image directly. Alternatively, you may be able to find a “Share” or “Copy Link” option near the top right of the image that will provide access to the URL.

Copying an Image Address from Finder on a Mac

To copy an image address from Finder on a Mac, first, open the image in Finder. Then, right-click (or hold Ctrl and click if you’re using a one-button mouse) on the image and select ‘Copy “Image Name” as Pathname’ from the dropdown menu. This will store the image address in your clipboard, which you can then paste into any text editor or web browser.

Obtaining the URL of an Image

To get a URL for an image, start by going to and searching for the image you would like to get the URL of. From the Images results, click on the desired image. In the right panel, click ‘More’ then ‘Share’. You should see a link that says ‘Click to copy link’, which is the URL you need. Click on this link to copy the URL and you will be able to paste it wherever you need it.

Copying an Image URL from Apple Photos

To copy an image URL from Apple Photos, open the app and locate the desired image. Tap the image to get a larger version and at the top, tap the address bar to select the entire URL. You can then copy this URL by pressing and holding on to it until a menu appears with a Copy option. Once you have copied the URL, you can paste it into another app or document as desired.

What is an Image Address?

An image address, also known as an image URL, is the web address of an image that can be used to share and access it online. It’s a way of specifying the exact location of an image on the internet, similar to how a street address specifies the exact location of a house. Image URLs are necessary for sharing images online because they provide direct access to the image file, removing any need to download it first.

Copying an Image URL in Safari

In Safari, you can easily copy an image URL by tapping and holding the image. Then select ‘Copy Image Address’ or ‘Copy Image’ from the menu options that appear. Once you have copied the image address, open a new browser window and paste the address into the address bar at the top of the window. You can then use this URL to share or access the image.

Creating a URL for an Image on Mac

Creating a URL for an image on Mac is easy and can be done in a few simple steps.

First, open the Photos app and select the image you want to create a URL for. Once you have it selected, click the “Share” button at the top of the window. Then, select “Copy Link” from the options available. This will copy an URL for that image to your clipboard. You can paste this URL into any website or document that requires a link to an image.

You can also use iCloud to create a URL for your images. To do this, open iCloud and select “Photos” from the options available. Select the image you want to create a URL for, then click on “Share” at the top of the window. From there, select “Copy Link” and a URL will be copied to your clipboard that you can paste into any website or document as needed.

Finally, if you prefer not to use either Photos or iCloud, there are other file-sharing solutions available such as Dropshare that allow you to easily drag and drop images onto their app icon and then copy your link for easy sharing across different platforms.
