    By following this method, users can upload the photo to Tumblr

  • Users will have to click on ‘Create Post’ for saving it

  • But the URL has been still not updated

  • For the URL;

    Go to ‘Posts’

  • Users will then have to click on the image that is present next to the ‘Private’ icon

  • Users will now get a bigger version of the image

  • Right click the image


    Then the users will have to select ‘Copy Image URL’ which will give the users the required URL

    Where as if the user sees a link below that says ‘High - Resolution’ in small letters, then that means that Tumblr has resized the photo much smaller so that it can be displayed in the dashboard

    If the user wishes to have the high resolution image which will be bigger than the actual size displayed in the dashboard, then the users will have to click on the link

  • Right-click the link and select ‘Copy Image URL’

  • Now the users will have to navigate back towards the ‘reblog’ screen

  • Click on the icon that denotes little square green tree

  • Paste the URL in the Image URL box

    The Dimensions will be automatically filled, where as it is also possible for the users to modify the dimensions manually

  • Finally click the ‘Insert’ option

  • Now the users can see that the image has appeared in the text box and users will be able to view the preview image in the reblog caption
