How to Add a Picture to a MySpace Page

You can add images to your MySpace profile in the "Photos" section but if you want to show them off on your front page, you'll need to learn a little HTML.

    Preview the page. If the image is too big, you can adjust the size:

    <img src="../insert url here" width=200 />

    Change the number until the image is a good size. You can also adjust the height in addition to the width, but sometimes that can distort the image:

    <img src="../insert url here" width=250 height=200 /> See more HTML tips in the video below.

Tips

  • This will also work for inserting an image into a bulletin or comment.

Warnings

  • It is a common misconception that you can copy images as long as you do not profit from them. This is not true! Always check to make sure that you have permission to post the picture. Failure to do so could put you in court!
