I copied the HTML code for the large size of that image and pasting it here. No need to write any codes such as this ""[img][url].....[/url][/img])", Which I always seem to forget! Besides, the image will be clickable and if you click on it, will take you to the photo page of the image.
what if the image belongs to you ?
If the image belongs to you, it is still the same procedure. On the image links pop up however, you will see an additional code, the one that the yellow arrow is pointing to :
Like we discussed, with if we use the previous HTML code, the image will be clickable to the photo page.If you like to use the image for a gallery banner, it is good to use this code and this is why we have provided it.
