Tumblr is the home to some of the most visually intriguing and hilarious imagery in the known universe. You’re bound to want to share it with your friends that aren’t on Tumblr (yet). But maybe you don’t want to share the entire post and you just want to share the picture.
The old way to do this was to right click an image, get the link to the image, and then paste it somewhere else. This isn’t fun as it means if someone else likes it, wants to see more of it, or wants to know where it came from, they don’t have any of that info.
Finally there’s a better way. We now have image permalinks.
There are two ways to get to an image permalink. You can either click on a photo on a blog and it’ll take you to the image page, or you can replace the word “/post/” with “/image/” in the permalink.
Now, when you post that picture somewhere else, your friends can not only see how awesome you are for sharing things, but they can also see where a post came from, Like the image, or even reblog it to their blog.
