I guess I have to hope it happens to me at some point so I can try to capture some data. There isn’t much to go on to try to address it yet. The advice to switch to another thread and then come back seems a possible workaround.
On another thread, Euro Dandy shared this information for those having trouble posting links to images.
gscott, I looked at both your and my posts and I see the difference. I’m using the actual image address. You are using the address one level up from the actual image (sort of like the folder the image sits in). It’s the same thing that was causing bikemike’s post to not work.
Not sure if you’re this interested, but here’s what you can do to make it work. If you use Chrome as your browser, go to the web page of the image and right click on the image itself. Then select “copy image address” — then use that address to post it on this site. BTW, it’s a very long address.
If you use Internet Explorer, then it’s a little different. Go to the web page of the image and right click on the image itself. Then select “properties” — one of the properties you will see is “address (URL)” — copy that address and use it to post on this site.
Seems like a question to ask Dropbox support. The problem is with how you are picking up the addresses of their images. As we saw, Euro could post your Dropbox images just fine. Another potential solution is to use a different site to put your images – if you really have a lot of your own images that you want to use.
