Richard, I can see your linked image fine, but I've set my browser security setting so that it shows images from "insecure" http sites and not only (the default for most browsers these days) links from "secure" https sites.

How to do that is different for different browsers. Which browser are you using?

Putting that in the IMG codes doesn't seem to work for me?

Two observations:
The link does not end in .jpg
When I take the links into a browser, I do not get a picture either.
Why not follow me on Instagram? @Addy_101

This is a test to see if I can post from iCloud Photos using the "public website" function.



EDIT clearly not

From Adobe CC...



Weirdly this worked on my car club forum but not here? That uses vBulletin?
It just seems mad that I have photos in iCloud and Adobe CC but the internets won't let me embed them

For the first time ever, my photos from PBase are not displaying! Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Thanks... Brian

I note that getting links from Joomeo has got more complicated. The old instant drop-down menus have disappeared and I now have to find the 'web' size link and change it to something else before I can access a usable link.
None of the links they offer at first with \\\ in them work here. I need plain text with http or https at the front and a .jpg or .jpeg at the end. If you don't have both of those, or you have slashes in the middle, forget it!

The URL should be to an image (ie a file with an image type extension such as .jpg

Enclose this between IMG and /IMG each enclosed in square brackets [] (img/IMG both work).

Alternatively click the picture icon in the toolbar on the post editor, paste in the URL and the editor will do the rest. However, the tools always put their output at the end of a post, you may need to cut & paste if you want it earlier.

I've used Google photos for many years now to share here. Google gives out such a URL but I can append "#-.jpg" at the end to make it work on Dyxum. I learned that from another member who posted how to share Google images.

Great tip.

I used it for 2-3 years for a non-photo hobby (for sharing app screen shots). It has a FAQ about grabbing the correct code for "posting to forums" (as per the link above). So a legit reason to use it and something they support.

I imagine when photobucket and flickr 'did their thing' that imgur got some uptick in use.

Simple to use. Yes it is full of memes - don't view it as a 'flickr alt'. It is a reliable route to posting forum images.

I might even make a new one just for dyxum images. Deleted my other one once I was done with it - socials are temporary now.

EDIT - note that I used it as a stand-alone, created an account, uploaded images for sharing. I did NOT link it to any of my google accounts (might want to read the full terms before doing that and see what access you're giving). As an 'upload this image, share to here' option I liked it (and read the terms with that in mind).

More Dyxumer, less photographer.
