Update: since May 2014 it is now possible to edit the date and time for individual photos on Google+. By heading to the photo details pane in the lightbox, you'll notice that the data next to "Date taken" is now clickable. When pressed, you are greeted with a popup in which you can edit the date and time stored in the photo's metadata. ...

Try Nerdydata, which is a search engine for indexing webpage source code. You should be able to search for web pages that use the exact image URL, if any. Paste URL into the search box. Nerdydata Image Search: Locate an image with the full image URL Technical details: It may not work if the image is linked in CSS file instead of img tag.

Your images aren't stored on Blogger.com, they're most likely in Picasa-web-albums / Google+ photos if you uploaded them via the Blogger post editor. There is absolutely no way to stop people hot-linking to them. Try watermarking them, so you at least get some credit when they're used.

It seems that if you make the size of the images above 900 pixels or so, in either width or height, Twitter will always show the image inline the timeline feed. Bizarre, but it consistently works.

When it comes to Facebook, PNG is ideal over JPEG. JPEG is already compressed when you save it and Facebook will compress it more. If you want clearer pictures on Facebook, try PNG instead. Also make sure to use the recommended size of 851 x 315px.

I expect you'll want to upload an image that is the exact size as the Facebook Cover photo, so that there is no resizing done. According to What are the dimensions for the Facebook Timeline cover photo? the dimensions are 851 × 315 pixels. (There's some other good advice in the answers to that question as well.) That said, Facebook is pretty notorious for ...

Hotlinking images is not officially supported by Google+. However I'm not currently aware of any restrictions to doing it. You can go through the Picasa Web interface which does officially support hotlinking images. Some people suspect that Picasa Web will be retired soon though so that might not work very long.

Google allows public anonymous access to images if you use absolute address of the image. One simple way to find absolute path of an image (in Google Chrome) is to right click on the image and choose "Open Image in New Tab", then you can see the absolute path of the image in the address bar of newly opened tab. You can use this address in img tags. But ...

You can resize any image from any domain using Sencha.io Src service. Append the URL of the image to be resized to the end of the Sencha.io Src URL while also specifying the desired dimensions in the URL: http://src.sencha.io/32/32/http://example.com/670image.jpg

Svick is correct; there is no way in MediaWiki to change an image's aspect ratio without reuploading it. However, the first bullet point, [[File:Whiskey flag.svg|50x50px]], is actually correct, but it just doesn't do what you may expect it to. That syntax sets whichever dimension is larger, height or width, to 50px and computes the other based on the aspect ...

As far as I know, MediaWiki doesn't have any syntax for that. The image syntax is for displaying images, not for modifying them, which is what you're asking. To do this, I think you will have to reupload the image with the aspect ratio you want.

Photopin.com, which indexes photos from flickr.com, supports partially this feature. It is still not entirely compliant with the CC attribution requirements mentioned in the question. On Photopin, once you find an image, you hover over it and click "get photo" which brings up a dialog as such: The last part "Grab HTML for Attribution" is a step in the ...

Facebook is not for original-quality image-hosting, but it's great for promotion. I would advise you to store the originals on a hosting site that does not modify the originals, post a smaller version to facebook (optimised according to other links in comments), and link to your original. Possibly, linking to the original will provide a good-enough-quality ...

Can you get the source URL of the image itself from Pinterest? Not necessarily - because there might not even be one. Pinterest doesn't require the pinned image to be on the web-page. I can upload an image from my computer, and then after it was pinned to a board I could edit the pin, and attach an URL to it. There is no connection between the ...

When posting to Twitter, Google+ or Facebook, the only logo that will come through is the image attached to the owner or organisation that owns the repository. As such, to edit what that logo is, you will have to update the linked Gravatar image attached to the email on that owner or organisation account. You could add an image to the repo itself, but ...

You cannot add an image as a logo of a GitHub repository, but README.md does not require adding the image to the repository as you can use external images as well, e.g.: ![Logo](http://francky.me/images/quora001.png)

On Windows you can paste the image URL in explorer when attaching a file:

Fortunately you can do it from Google+: Click on Photo details, then on the date/time (2nd row)

You can attach your image in a page in your project documentation area, it looks like you store your image with a link and use it for any purpose (discussion, Documentation...)

It works if you open the image map in Firefox (using a locally saved HTML file), mark and copy the visible content on screen (not the code itself), then paste straight into your Gmail email signature editor which can be open in Chrome. Gmail ignores the HTML when the content is copied in from Chrome and it won't paste from Safari—it has to be from Firefox.
