Posting Images On Twitter

Hi,

For those that use twitter for marketing, I have a question - how do you get the images to show up in the tweet? Like on FB, if you post the URL of the pixels page for a given image, it automatically displays the image on the facebook post. Twitter doesn't seem to do that - I have to manually upload a photo as an attachment to the tweet.

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks.

I use buffer, it pull an image in automatically when you put the link in the tweet.

lately it posts the picture from here, but you have to erase the first part -- i uploaded something on finartamerica... you erase that part, and it should generate a picture maybe.

also if you check off - automatically post to twitter when you edit or submit a picture, it will use a picture. but you lose control of the hashtags there.

Thanks DK and Mike.

Mike - when you say "erase the first part", you mean, erase part of the pixels URL?

Yes, I don't do the auto-post to twitter b/c I'd like to add a few hastags/other notes.

If you post directly to Twitter you eliminate all the problems.

The only way I am aware of is by doing so within the edit functions by selecting "post to twitter" then hitting "submit". But note this method will announce it as a new image in the post. Using the twitter public button on the image's page doesn't present previews on FAA, pixel or your private account pixel site.Another way, I sometimes create my own posts on twitter by adding a saved smaller version of the original image with a page link in the body of text.

Check out this photograph on https://fineartamerica.com! https://fineartamerica.com/featured/blossoming-memories-kunal-mehra.html

it looks like this. if you remove "Check out this photograph on https://fineartamerica.com!" then the picture should load up. it doesn't always work though.

I hit the tweet button. Delete the broken image part since it isn't working correctly at the moment. Leave the link and words and upload my own watermarked image.

Hi

You should be sharing manually really to get a good feedback

Go to the image page
The link is on the right under the preview code
The Instagram link just gives you an image to share on Instagram and other social medias

Clicking the link shows you an image

Right click and save the image

Upload to the social media status as normal

That image is cropped. If you click on the word Preview instead (just above) then you get the uncropped version

@ Abbie I got everything to this point, "That image is cropped. If you click on the word Preview instead (just above) then you get the uncropped version" I upload to Twitter but I still got the cropped image. Help please

I agree with Floyd, post yourself, add the picture before the URL. I use two emoji arrows either side of the URL.

Yes, post and promote your OWN images by making a tiny image either via a screen shot from here or making a small one in Photoshop and going to Twitter and posting that image, include the link from FAA or your Artist Website page right directly on Twitter.

BUT ... and it's a big but ...if you're like me and when you find something you love from another artist that you want to promote for THEM, the twitter button is much more convenient. Mike is right. Hit the Twitter button on the other artist's image page (this is assuming the other artist allows you to promote on Twitter, btw!!!). Now, what happens is the info in the block that comes up will include the main address from Fine Art America first. Take your mouse and highlight the Fine Art America address and hit your delete button (sorry FAA!). That will leave just the address for the art of your friend that you want to promote for them. IF ... if if if ... Twitter is in the mood and the stars and sun and tides align ... the little image that shows up will be the image for the artwork that you want the world to see. For some reason, after about the 3rd promotion in a row, though, Twitter quits letting us see the pretty picture. At least it does that to me.

eyeroll.

Hope that makes sense.

I was wondering how everyone was getting the image with the details on the bottom. Now I know. Thanks! I've just been using on of the room scenes and posting that way.

Has anyone heard twitter is talking about charging to use their service? I heard them talking about it on the radio. I hope not!
