How to Get the URL of Images You Upload in WordPress

Often in our articles you will see a reference like insert image URL. For example, in our adding new default avatars article, we mentioned just add the name and image URL. One of our users, asked how to get the URL of images you upload in WordPress from your computer. In this article, we will show you just how to do that.

All you have to do is login to your dashboard. Click on the “Media” menu item.

Open a file from Media Library to Edit in WordPress

Then click on the Edit link on any image that you have already uploaded. You will see something like this:

Find image URL for a file uploaded in WordPress

You can see the link URL of the image you uploaded from your computer to WordPress there. Now all you have to do is copy that URL and use it wherever you like. Whether it is twitter, Facebook, or anywhere else.

For those reading this, we also have a FREE WordPress Videos section for beginners. You can learn how to use the WordPress dashboard in full details.

    And the next question is: where I can find all the versions created after the upload?
    I mean, the large, medium, thumb sized version of the image.
