OK, trying Job's suggestion of replacing dl=0 with raw=1 in the Dropbox link. How does that look to people who couldn't see the earlier image?

Looks good to me too, so it looks like we're home and dry so far as Dropbox is concerned. N.B. Here's the Dropbox FAQ that covers the subject. It's interesting that when I raised this subject with Dropbox Support last year they didn't know about it. Maybe so many people like me moaned about the loss of image rendering that they put the functionality back in on the quiet. If so, jolly good, say I.

He is Shaun the Sheep. From the people that brought you Wallace & Grommet.
He was in one of their movies, then got his own kid's TV show on BBC.

I have renamed this topic and made it a Sticky.

Note: Facebook and Twitter images usually cannot be seen by anyone who does not have an account with them and is logged into their sites, so I strongly advise against posting such image links.

You can link to images on other public sites using the Img button in the Post dialogue box and inserting the image URL. Our site always resizes images to fit within the forum's main text area, so if you are linked to massive images this will add an overhead every time someone loads/views that topic.

As others have stated, it's best all round if you can upload images to your own web site and reference them from there, using the Img button, as you control this and we're less likely to have threads in the future where images show as missing.

Alternatively, I can recommend using the free image-hosting service provided by Imgur at https://imgur.com

Excellent! I'll leave the files I've linked to that are held in Dropbox in place so they can act as a reference if Dropbox change the way they do things again.

I don’t have to be logged in (twitter or S0S) to see my own twitter linked posted pics, but if one needs a twitter account to see them, dang…

But seeing as you can post several pics on one Twitter post and then link them separately and once they’re up you don’t have to sign in to Twitter to use ‘em, it’s dead simple too, a no brainer

for a no-brain like moi innit.

Think this might have something to do with your Guest status. Guests do not have image posting permissions (I think).
