    Are you using your Dropbox Public Folder?

    That's just using the URL in the image tags or insert image button.
    Code:

    For people that don`t have a dropbox public folder. If you have a dropbox account created after 2012 you will need to enable the public folder and put your pictures in there to get them to work, at least I had to.

    For Dropbox, get your Shared link and change the www to dl in the URL and it'll work every time.

    Be careful for this though:
    According to Dropbox support, public links for free accounts may not use more than 10GB of bandwidth per day while that limit is 250GB per day for paid Dropbox accounts.

    So the more pictures you post, the quicker you'll hit that limit. I don't know how much traffic EDCF gets, but it will only take 87,000 views of a 120 KB picture to hit your limit. 2 pictures will take half that amount, and so on.

    That 'dl' worked for me. I didn't realize how tough it was to figure out how to post a pic!
    Thanks

    That Movie Guy This image just posted from my Imgur account.

    [​IMG]

    1. From this view in Imgur, click on desired image.

    imgur1.jpg

    2. This view appears, with various link-boxes to the right.

    imgur22.jpg

    3. Click inside the BBCode (message boards & forums) box; it will then be highlighted in green (on my monitor anyway) as below; this copies the link inside the box to your clipboard (unnecessary to right-click and copy)

    imgur33.jpg

    4. Now, paste the link into your EDCF post-composition window.

    imgur44.jpg

    There are other ways to do it, but this should work for you. Post again if continuing issues. We'll get you fixed up.

    Hoping this works - was hit and miss using other methods. Trying DropBox public folder.

    Yes, displays perfectly (at least as I view on laptop). Well done!
