I am having trubs getting images from Imgur to link, so I will clutter this thread up with my attempts!

Existing image that would not load on other thread, direct from Imgur:



No sign of it in preview!

Image, used before, direct from Imgur:



That appears in preview.

Try posting:

Appears in first posting, still in preview.

Ah! Now there's interesting . . .

The failed imsge link is: https://imgur,com/a/bsh7sB5 (my commas instead of stops)

Note the "/a" which does not appear in the link to the other image link -

https://imgur,com/ydD4hNn.jpg

But if you delete the "/a" it says the image not longer exists.

Time for tea and more looking at later.

New image shared to Imgur direct from Lumix SD card:



No show on review

Or, on posting.


The link also contains the "/a", tried changing it b, x, y, z . . . and nothing at all appears. Tried leaving the .jpg off, changing it to.png - nuffink.

Hermes, if you gave Imgur your data please load a new picture in this thread and post the link, with the comma or (.), if it works.

Someone else's image:

BusinessWeek cover for February 1996.

No show on that either!

I have found the Imgur query site and asked them about this.

Is that a posh milk jug?

Thanks, H, no "/a" then! Have you been asked to share your data yet, if so how did you answer?

It's a sculpture in Hout Bay, near Cape Town, believe it or not.

No, they've never asked me to share my data. It sounds a bit suspicious to me.

Can't even set up an alias Imgur account, it recognises me!

Need another hoster-poster.



That's via Phitobucket but you have to confirm your email at every step or pay at least $4/month.

When you copy the link in Imgur, do you choose the BBCode option (second one from the bottom)?

I am doing it as I have always done, remember this is on an Android tablet:

Click on image - sellect "Share" icon
Select Imgur
Select "Hidden"  then "Upload"
Select "View" then "Share"
Select "Clipboard"
Enter link in post - adding ".jpg"
Highlight and select the image code icon
Check in "Preview"
Post if OK

Sounds bloody complex written out, but its like playing a piano, you don't have to think about what your hands are doing - muscle memory.

The problem with Photobucket was that I had not yet received, and replied to, the confirmatory email. Now I have done that there is less hassle.

I am on a PC, so it's not as complicated.

Actually photobucket has a few less clicks and a better selection of types of link.

Seems the /a denotes something in an album according to the helpdesk, not shareable.  Except I have no albums . . . And I have not changed my key clicks for a year. Oh, except when they dropped the file type suffix so I had to add that. Over 6 months agoish.
