Uploading images & videos#
We support JPEG, PNG and GIF images. The maximum image size is 25MB. You can upload images without any resolution limit (there is still the 25 MB cap on image size though)! Please note that the images are scaled down to 1024px when viewed (or less, if the image original size or embed size is less). If your image has lots of text, we recommend you use PNG instead of JPEG.:definition text
You can upload an unlimited number of videos to Thinglink. Videos can be uploaded via the Create tab. You can upload YouTube and Brightcove Videos.
Corporate users can upload videos from their hard drive.
Adding images from the Web#
If you can view it in your browser, you can probably tag it. All you need to do is to find a URL of an image. In most cases, you can just right-click on an image, and choose "Copy image URL" or similar, and paste the URL at Add from Web on Thinglink.
Thinglink will not make a copy of the image, just store a reference to the URL. This means that if the original image is removed or renamed, we may start showing an error instead of the image. If reliability is important, we recommend uploading the image instead of using web import.
However, if you already have the images on your own web site, using Web import is certainly easier and faster.
Web import also supports SVG images in addition to our regular image types.
Importing images from Facebook#
You can connect with Facebook and import your personal images for rich tagging. After the import you will see your Facebook image sets on Thinglink. You may choose one or multiple images for the import. The imported images do not count against your upload limit, and continue to be hosted on Facebook.
Importing images from Flickr#
You can import the latest public images from any Flickr user. Just type in a Flickr username, and we'll show you a list of the 20 most recent images. You may choose one or multiple images to be imported to Thinglink. The imported images do not count against your upload limit, and continue to be hosted on Flickr.
