How to copy a picture from Instructables library Answered

I found a picture I have in my library and would like to copy it to go into a different Instructable. How do I do that. I have tried to copy and paste, copy link and do a search, baffled! Thanks


You don't need to copy it.

When you are editing the new instructable, and you want to add the picture, just click the "library" tab, and then find the desired image by keywords.

Nope I guess I did not save it correctly. I get nothing! Dang!!!!!!!!!! At least I am filing them now under the instructable title.

Thanks Mr. K! Guess what! I never tagged them! You learn sometimes by mistakes! I am tagging them now into a special folder but back then I didn't. I found the picture in one instructable from 1 year ago that I want to use but I did not tag them. I don't want to go through 5000 pages to hit the add button! I tried copying it and pasting to this folder but it is too small. I uploaded it to edit it and make it larger and I loose the quality : ( I guess I am in truuuuble. I am using the picture even if it is small because it would take too long to go and find it clicking down the page line. 

OK, so go to the ible where you used it, hit the "i" button, and find the largest version of the image.

"Save image" to your PC, then re-upload with tags.


Why reupload, when you can change the keyword right in the library?

Oh, wait... because you'd have to find it in the library first, right?

Thanks! I found my picture in the library and learned something new because of your answer. However the picture in the library still uploads to a small picture. I followed kitemans suggestion and could not find the i so I saved the large version to my PC and it is still small. I wanted to give you credit because your answer will save me a lot of time in my future instructables. Thanks again!

I want the picture of the cement truck. Grrrrrr
Thanks Mr. K. and Hack42Moem!

I did go to the picture and click on the picture and it said it was a large version, I saved it to my computer and it does not upload as a large picture. I am working on another instructable and I wanted a picture of the truck. Thanks for your help anyway! I guess I need to get some rest.  Here is the link to my new instructable:https://www.instructables.com/id/Concrete-Side-Walk/
