Quickly and easily add images to your site or blog without hotlinking

Man, I love adding cool images to my blog posts, but sometimes it can be a pain to find an image, download it, upload it, get the path, and blah blah blah. So, imgred.com makes it easy to embed images in your site, but instead of hotlinking to the original source, imgred downloads it, places it on their own server, and allows you to hotlink from there.

But how does it work? Well, I tried it with this image from Lifehacker, who wrote up this very same topic.

Hotlinking from an article about hotlinking

So, if you see an image above, then it must be working.

As you can see from the image, all you have to do is add “http://imgred.com/” to the beginning of the absolute path to the image online. Pretty easy. Now, I’m about to hit submit and see if it works…
