Download the image to your computer, upload it to somewhere like http://tinypic.com/, and then use the URL from there instead?

Why cant I just right click 'copy image location', and post it under insert image anymore?

Ah sorry, thought that 'You Are Not Allowed To Use That Image Extension On This Board' was your offer for 'Probably the best joke in the world, ever'

Nope. Youve gone a bridge too far there Sherwick.

Im gonna assume the Mods dont have a clue how to fix this either.

Might help if we new what the extension is.

Every photo I right click on. Copy Image Location. Then paste into Insert Image/

Isnt there a deligated dedicated Fubra chap/Mod who suggests solutions to problems relating to the site?

I am wasting complete minutes of my forking life here.:angry:

How about you post the url, or path your trying to paste into the insert link dialogue box.

These picture are on the web and not your local computer?

If local you have to add using the attachment function.

What you're getting is a dynamically loaded image and not a direct link. as in:

...phpBB3/download/file.php?avatar=10684_1256935966.jpg

(part url)

Those kind of generated images need to be saved out and loaded the traditional way.

Is it a dynamic image? Does the path have cookies and session info? Give us the image URL.

On this occasion, I was looking for an image of Bill Bailey.

This one below worked.

Personally I would like to see a new movement for conscientious objectors formed, headed by the grand wizard Bill Bailey.....

I think he'd get more conscripts than the army

...................................YOUR COUNTRY DOES NOT NEED YOU!!............................................

But many others did not:

My link

If you type Bill Bailey into google and click images. 90% of the photos I attempted to copy image location and paste into insert image did not work.........

I think if the link to the image doesn't end in .jpg (or whatever) you get this error message.

If I try to copy image location using a JPEG extension I still get the following result: [Cannot just be me surely?]

That's just the output of a database query, not a direct link to an image.

The first image for Bill Bailey in my Google search came up with something similar to your insanely long string.

I saved the image out; you can either load it through another server or attach it to the post local to the forum.

Through DropBox:

Attached:

This seems to affect images that are served dynamically.

The URL isn't a link to something ending in .JPEG or the like but a stream of code.

In most websites, images are static files and are displayed on a web page through the <img> HTML element or the ASP.NET Image Web control (which renders an <img> element). However, there are times when images need to be served dynamically. Consider a dating website where members can upload pictures of themselves. These pictures need to be stored somewhere, either on the web server's file system or directly in the database. If the images are stored on the file system then they can be displayed by an <img> HTML element or the ASP.NET Image Web control, but if the images are stored within the database then special steps must be taken to extract the image from the database and send it down to the client. This typically entails creating an ASP.NET page whose sole purpose is to serve images from the database.

So I'm guessing that a link copied in these circumstances is for a page, not the actual image.

I just find another version of the same image.

I think there may be security reasons disallowing links to these kind of images. If they're dynamically generated then they could be something different every time you look at them, and this would allow the operators of the sites containing the images to include pretty much anything they want in people's posts. Maybe you paste in an image of Bill Bailey, but then whenever anyone else looks at it it's an advert for Viagra or something
