Most times, I upload my pics to imgbb.com. After you upload the pic you can select bb code, which provides the appropriate tags.

If you hot link, make sure the url ends in jpg, png, or gif. Make sure the url is nested between the

Code: Select all

[img] [/img]
tags.

You gotta be really careful about offering constructive suggestions, sir.

Remember how it got you into trouble before.

"Go image yourself" shouldn't be a problematic suggestion... :)

Wait.. lemme check with Urban Dictionary, just in case. Speaking of which:

You have to stick it between the code.
First is [Img] then the picture URL and close it with /img also in the square brackets.
Make sure there are no spaces and the link ends with the file type. Like .jpg or .png etc..
If it doesn't link to the image URL, it won't work.

An example:

Quote this post in a preview and you can see where a given image address needs to be placed...

If that was for me, I have no right click on a tablet. Long press on an image and select "Open image in a new tab" is what give me the image addy..

When I right click on a picture my options are:

Open image in new tab
Save image as
Copy Image
Copy Image link
Create QR code for this image
Search the web for image
Open in immersing reader
Add to collections
Web capture
Inspect

Nothing seems to work when attempting to copy and paste in Hide5

'Copy image link' should give you the web address to the image resource to use here in the [img] tags. But not always. Some websites don't point directly to the picture file (I think Facebook falls into that category).

Could you copy just the web address of an image you are trying to display here that won't work? If others can see the URL you are using, perhaps someone can determine what the problem is.
