Use Imagery from Google Street View

If you want to grab imagery from Street View to use in other places, Google offers tools to let you link to or embed the imagery.

Start with the cog icon in the bottom right of the display:

Choose Share and embed image to open up a further dialog. This displays, by default, its Share link tab, presenting a URL you can cut and paste to give to others. There’s also a checkbox to allow you to optionally generate a shortened version of the URL via the goo.gl service that I discussed in this previous post.

Alternatively, go to the Embed Image tab to get the necessary HTML code to embed your imagery in another web page:

Note that this view – and the one your visitors will see as embedded imagery – is a live street view image; you/they can drag it around or use the zoom/rotate tools (at the bottom right) to adjust the image as required.

There’s also a drop down menu (top left) to adjust the size of the generated image:

Use Custom size to adjust the image to your exact needs:
