    How do you get an image url with a mac?
    Hey, I just bought my new 17" pb today. Usually with windows all I had to do was right click and go under properties to get the url. I have tried to use "copy link to clipboard" with ctrl+click, but I can't paste after I do this. Thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    20" iMac C2D 2.16ghz, 13" MacBook 2.0ghz, 60gb iPod vid, 1gb nano
    The way I do it is in Safari...I have tabs enabled and I just drag the image to a blank spot on the tab bar. It opens the image in a new tab with the address in the URL bar
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

    oooh, I usually right click and choose open image in new tab. I didn't know I could just drag it.....very cool

    Oh and here's an interesting story from ThinkSecret on Tiger that seems to have just what you're looking for:

    If you do this often, it may be better to ditch Safari for Camino...which has a Copy Image Location command.
