HTML Code to Link to

UPDATE: For some reason, Blogger is denying some domains permission to load the images. If this is the case for your site, feel free to click the image to grab its URL. Then you can drag it to your computer and upload it as you would any other photo. Replace the Source URL (it is surrounded by the quotes after SRC=) with the new location, and you are good to go.

If you like what you read, and want to help to spread the word, you can link to Strobist from your site or blog by using the HTML code on this page.

All you have to do is choose a format and grab the code underneath the photo. The image will automatically be served from my site.

The last two images are actually 728-pixel-wide "leaderboards," (which are commonly run on the top or bottom of a page) but I am only displaying them at 400 pixels so that they will fit into my interior column format. To see them at actual size, click on them.

The image will display on your site as it does here, and the link will go to my welcome page.

If you link to here from your site, please throw your URL into the comments section, so I can see your stuff!

Oh, and dude: Thanks!

Hi David,
I purchased your Strobist Lighting Seminar about two weeks ago, and it's the best money I've spent in a decade. I thought I knew a bit about light, but soon realized how much I was missing. I've been using two small 50 watt strobes underwater for over 20 years, but I never made the connection. A side note, I've been legally blind since birth, 20/400 corrected with about 10% normal eyesight, so I use a Nikonos V rangefinder underwater, and autofocus lenses above. I can see fairly clearly a few inches from my nose so I've been chimping, and finding work-arounds all my life. I linked your site on my links page at Please keep up the great work, and all the best to you.

I am really loving the whole strobist/off-camera thing. I use to hate using flash. Now I think it's great. I still have a long road before I have totally grasped it all but I am loving it when I am able to shoot.

I'm going to try for the first time this year to set up 3 flashes in my living room and dining room for Christmas day. They are attached to the wall, the LCD TV and a shelf on the wall. Out of the way but lighting the room up.

Hi David
I've been a fan of your site for years. Just wondering...I'm doing some writing work for an on-line gallery in Australia - I am happy to send you the address privately but I thought I'd ask your permission for that as I don't want to be seen as spamming...
Anyway I am building a learning centre for them (which is a fancy way of saying I'm linking and embedding tutorials!) I was wondering if I can embed the tutorials you have uploaded to You Tube? The ones which display the embed code? People tell me I can - but I feel uncomfortable doing so without your permission. I would link back to your site and credit you. Kind Regards, Mel.
