RE: Test rpz 1 (trying to load a photo)
Hello Dave,

Thought I deleted this test but glad I didn't.

I am using an iMac with Catalina and Safari. After going to Onedrive online:

right click, share, copy link, click on copy.

Here I am just pasting the link with right click, paste, or cmd-v on Mac.

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ag_uLaH6mJWRkn9WwTHb...h?e=ePOFbx

Here I am clicking the hyperlink icon and pasting into box, ok

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ag_uLaH6mJWRkn9WwTHb...h?e=ePOFbx

Last time I tried this I thought it was highlighted, not this time.

Here I am clicking insert image, paste link, ok.

No highlighting, no picture.

This is the same image you were able to insert in your post.

I am missing something. Any help would be appreciated.

Regards, Rick

On preview post, 2 links are highlighted. Where image should be just a box with question mark. Ughhhhhhh

Hello!

This image page is a dynamic one.
It is a page that redirect to anolther.
I think that it is the reason it does not work.

Use a page with a static address for the image,
like this one at my site:

http://area48.com/hpm/hpglobe1.jpg

Put it into [img] and [/img] (image tags)

And it should works fine.

Site is mine and photo is mine, no boring copyrights required.

Hello Carlos,

I don't know if I have a static webpage, or know what that is.

Thanks

I believe Carlos is right. Another way to put it would be to say that you need to link to an image, not a webpage.

That link that you get when you share something on onedrive is not a link to an image. Instead, it is a link to the page on which the image (and the share button and everything else) is to be found.

When I R-Click on the image and then click Copy image address, that I believe is a link to the image, not a webpage. I wouldn't be able to display it otherwise.

Very true, but right-clicking on an image and copying the link is not the same as clicking on a "share" link on a onedrive/google drive/dropbox page.

Understand now that the problem is static vs dynamic, webpage vs image address. In Onedrive the only relevant menu options are share and embed, neither of which work. When I click on the photo and then r-click shows copy image address. Still not working for me. Tried icloud and dropbox and a bunch of work arounds with no luck.

But Dave, you did it. If I copy image address of your posted gear photo I can copy image address and insert image. How did you do that?

Went back to my first post. Click on link and see gear photo. R-click and copy image address. Goto this post, insert image, paste image address:

Hi Rick,

Code:
https://bn1303files.storage.live.com/y4mBspLdSwl9n8o6uJxi7strUPIeWS1X3Ra1cjrK8QeQwg8k24iWFlDRUoPWbwXQJLHTJLSdsPEo0Bo1​XzgWqEEuOb53IJcqNpQ5qltdkih7vyWpzfO5lXZfRN_NFtmSQkz351p-fozzc49W3F24fExZMuouomiS8pLMPs7BYESL8BYpfQnOqXwm9TnLseDEYmsbJ4872M37_iLREuVicnGH​w/20201020_133453%20RPZ.jpeg?psid=1&width=593&height=790

... and just to make sure.

So for some reason the image displayed, previously. I suspect that it has a lot to do with dynamic vs static webpages and I recall that Google Drive at one time needed Permalinks in order to display images.
