    How to Copy an Image's URL when using MicroSoft Internet Explorer...
    Right click on an image, then select the properties. When the properties box pops up you'll see the image's URL listed. Click and drag over the URL to select it and then on your keyboard hold down the Ctrl key. While holding it down also press the C key. This copies the URL. Then close out of the properties box, go to where you want to put the location, place your cursor in this spot, when it's blinking, hold down the Ctrl key again and also press the V key, this will paste the URL.

    When using Netscape the job is much less complicated. Just right click on an image and at the bottom of the pop-up window select "Copy Image Location."

    Give it a try! Here's an image for your convenience.
