Software recommendation: PicGo, the online show tool

When writing articles, tweeting or posting online, we often need to insert various images. The conventional method is to prepare the material images first, and then upload them for use. Since the images in these articles are themselves displayed online, you can now use PicGo to directly reference them online and save the inconvenience of downloading and uploading.

PicGo supports common image sites such as Yatai Cloud, Ali Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Seven Cows, etc. After the software is launched, expand the image bed settings and choose a service provider here to save images online. Here we take Weibo as an example, switch to Weibo and enter your Weibo account and password as prompted, then click “OK” to save the settings (Figure 1).

Switch to the “upload area” and click Upload as prompted to upload the image you want to transfer to Weibo. The program also supports clipboard image upload, and the link format supports Markdown, HTML, URL and other common formats, so we can choose according to our actual needs (Figure 2).

For Weibo users, the photos are saved in the album by default after uploading, so switch to the album and click the “Copy” button to copy the URL of the image. Then you can use it directly in forums and blogs that support online images. For example, in forum replies, we can just paste in the address of the photo, and the image will appear in the post automatically (Figure 3).

Of course, for those who are familiar with the syntax, you can enter the album to edit the code directly. For example, if you want the inserted picture to be centered, then you can get the picture URL information as Html code. Then switch to “album – select the image you need to modify”, click the edit button to edit, for example, the code to change to the following code, <td align=”center”> <img src=”images/12345.jpg” width=”*” height=”*” border=”0″></td> (where images/**.jpg is the actual address link to the photo, please do your own replacement). In this way, after inserting the above code on a website or forum or blog page, the displayed image will be displayed in the position set by the above parameters (Figure 4).

Because PicGo uploads photos to an online storage space and can directly get the address link to the image. Most of the PicGo-supported image beds are provided by large companies, so there are no problems with image referencing, which is very convenient for users who need to post images online.
