One thing to keep in mind when uploading images to Pasteboard is that there are some restrictions on image size and format. Currently, images must be under 10MB in size, and they must be in one of the following formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, APNG, TIFF, or BMP.
If your image is too large or in the wrong format, you may need to resize or convert it before uploading it to Pasteboard. There are many free online tools available for resizing and converting images, so this should be a relatively easy process.
That’s all there is to it! When someone clicks on the link you’ve shared, they’ll be taken directly to your image on the Pasteboard platform.
Another thing to keep in mind when sharing Pasteboard links is that they are public by default. This means that anyone with the link can view your image, so you should be careful about sharing sensitive or personal images in this way. If you need to share a private image, you can use the Pasteboard password protection feature to add an extra layer of security.
