Whenever possible, it's recommended
you copy/paste URL's when linking your sites. It's just too
easy to make a mistake and I know. I've spent more time debugging
broken links only to find a typo on some part of the link.
So, let's say my images is here:
http://www.cbtcafe.com/ebay/duck.jpg. You can see this URL
in the address field below:
Now, I could type this back into
Ebay's Picture URL field on the Seller's page, but why take
the chance. I'll copy and paste it.
To copy and paste, click and drag
over the text you want to copy. This will highlight the text.
To copy the text you can do one
of two things: right click on the seleted text and select
Copy from the menu or use the way I prefer: to click Control-C
(Command-C for Mac users). This will copy the text to the
clipboard until you paste it or until you copy something else.
You won't really have a visual telling you it's copied, you'll
have to find that out when you try to paste it if you copied
To paste, go to the field on Ebay's
Seller's page and for Picture URL, hightlight the "http://"
text in there and then right click in the box and select Paste
from the menu.
You can alternatively, use a shortcut.
Highlight the "http://" text in the Picture URL
field and click Control-V (Command-V for Mac users). The reason
you're highlighting it is because you want to paste over it.
Remember, if you're copying from the browser window and you're
copying the entire address, you will already have selected
the "http://" and you DONT WANT to have it two times.
You can alternatively just select it and delete it and then
paste in the field.
That's it. Do you want to try?
