What is an Image URL and how do I find the Image URL for an image I want to use in Benchmark Email?

Image Gallery Updated on March 28, 2019

You don’t need to upload your images to your Benchmark account to use them in your campaigns, although we do recommend using the image gallery when possible. To use a photo stored outside of Benchmark Email, you will need to get the image URL (web address), which almost always ends with JPG, GIF, PNG or BMP. Keep in mind that the image URL does not usually match the web address of the page where the image appears.

To get the URL for the online image you’d like to use in Benchmark Email, please follow the steps below per browser.

 

For Firefox:
  1. Open a browser window and go to the page containing the image you want to use in Benchmark Email.
  2. Move your mouse over the image and right-click the mouse button.
  3. Select Copy Image Location or View Image.

     

  4. Now, copy the URL provided.  

 

For Internet Explorer & Microsoft Edge:
  1. Open a browser window and go to the page containing the image you want to use in Benchmark Email.
  2. Move your mouse over the image and right-click the mouse button.
  3. Select Copy link from the pop-up menu or you can select Open in new tab or window option and copy the URL directly from the address bar.

     

For Safari:

 

  1. Open a browser window and go to the page containing the image you want to use in Benchmark Email.
  2. Move your mouse over the image and right-click the mouse button.
  3. Select Copy Image Address from the pop-up menu or you can select Open Image in New Tab or New window option and copy the URL directly to the address bar.

     

For Chrome:

 

  1. Open a browser window and go to the page containing the image you want to use in Benchmark Email.
  2. Move your mouse over the image and right-click the mouse button.
  3. Select Copy Image Address from the pop-up menu or you can select Open in new tab option and copy the URL directly from the address bar.

 

Now the image URL is in your clipboard. Here is how you will paste it into Benchmark Email:

 

  1. Drag the image block to your email.
  2. Click on browser for file or Drag your image directly to the block.
  3. In the Insert Image pop up, paste the recently copied image URL and click Insert.
