What site are you using to host the photos? Let me know if you continue to have problems and I will host and post them for you.

Cheers,

I think the pictures are not set up as public, so we can't see it.

Looking at the URLs, I think you used the wrong url. You need to right click on the image to get the url, likely ending in ".jpg". Can you post a link to the gallery on Picasa?

Edit: Nevermind. I got it and fixed the urls in your last post. Nice ride!

Edit 2: For future reference, you have to use this url between the img tags: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-NdJg ... .56.36.jpg

Your words, not mine :-P

Using Picasa as an example, here is a picture of an angry owl: https://picasaweb.google.com/m/featured ... 0&mode=ONE

What you had done in your second attempt was copy the url in the address bar and pasted it between the img tags. That's how I was able to go to the page where your image was hosted and view it. (As a mod, I can edit your post, so I was able to see it how you typed it)

If you right click the image in Internet Explorer or Firefox, you can click on "Properties", then highlight the URL displayed after "Address".
If you right click on the image in Chrome browser, you can click "Copy Image URL".

You should get this: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-WfN8 ... G_7702.JPG

Paste that between the IMG tags as you were, and you get this:

Ok, I get it now...I think. I was useing the mobile app. Is there a way of posting a pic the way I was doing it, because the "proper" method doesn't appear to be an option, from the app I'm useing.

You mean the Gallery app on an Android phone? I can't find a way to do it directly from there on mine... If you mean an iPhone, I can't help you, because you are beyond all help. Fuck Apple.

The only way I know how to copy a URL from the phone is to view the image in the browser, then hold your finger over the url until it gives you the option to "Copy URL".

I have an android phone and I found a picasa app this morning...I was attempting to use that but, clearly failed. Thank you once again.
