What is image/video URL?

posted Jul 22, 2012, 9:10 PM by A Billion Stories
The submission of images/videos to ABS does not require the images to be uploaded to ABS. You only need to submit the "internet address" of the image to ABS, not the image itself. The internet address is called "URL" and starts with "http://" or "https://". 

You can upload your images to any online image hosting and sharing service such as Flickr, Picasa or Facebook and then provide us with the URL of the images while submitting the form. You can copy the URL of the image by selecting the right option after right-clicking on the uploaded image. Then you need to paste it in the form.

Facebook image URLs are permanent, hence are preferred. Flickr and Picasa image URLs become invalid when the photos are deleted.

Note: It is recommended to use Firefox or Chrome as your browser.
