To shorten image URLs for HTML, you can use a URL shortening service or create a custom redirect link. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Use a URL shortening service like Bitly, TinyURL, or Ow.ly. Simply paste the image URL into the service's website and it will generate a shortened link for you to use in your HTML code.
  2. Create a custom redirect link on your own website. You can create a new HTML file with a simple meta redirect tag that redirects to the original image URL. For example, create a file called "image-shortlink.html" with the following code:
1
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=https://www.example.com/original-image-url.jpg">


Then, link to this HTML file in your image tag:

1
<img src="https://www.yourwebsite.com/image-shortlink.html" alt="Shortened Image">


This way, when someone accesses the "image-shortlink.html" link, they will be redirected to the original image URL.
