Sharing and Embedding Photos and How to find the URL of a Photo

Every photo has a specific link (URL) to the page where it is presented. You can share these links with anyone directly, or through social networks using the sharing options. Embedding a photo into an external website or message board is also possible.

Please note, when a photo is shared, only the link to the Photo Page is shared with the other service. That means that only the web address (URL) of the Photo Page is sent to Facebook, Twitter or included in the email. When pinning to Pinterest, a small display copy of the image is sent to Pinterest for display in the selected Pinterest board. But when the image is clicked, it links back to the Photo Page in the photographer's website.
