    Is there a reason a Smugmug link will work and a One Drive link will not work?
    I don't know what a One Drive link is.

    The "code" I see doesn't look right to be "picked" out and posted with VB code. The small blue question mark means that the VB code "knows" something is there but doesn't "understand" how to deal with it.

    Okay. Thanks. I will do a bit more digging. The linked photos offer the potential for a better quality image and I am checking out my options. Photos I upload seem less sharp and more grainy.

    SmugMug is a great place to host pictures and has had a track record of being able to link into the forum. When it is an "attached" image in the forum, it goes the long way round so a hosting site seems to work best.
    Perhaps once I see a One Drive working example I could do better with it.

    I have Smugmug and like it. #824 is linked from Smugmug. I also use OneDrive and hope to link from there too. I will look into it some more. I appreciate your help.

    I googled this issue (called hot-linking or inline linking) and there may be a setting you have to change on your OneDrive account...that is make it public. Right click on the image, click on Share, and then make sure it's set to Public.

    Then again, OneDrive may not allow this type of thing...it may be a way of protecting copyright or a way of forcing a viewer to actually go to the OneDrive page which then offers advertising, etc. If the image is just shown on the MOA forum, it would be without all of the peripheral stuff that is on the OneDrive page.

    I checked my OneDrive settings and everything looks good. Others can open the pictures with the links. I will go back to it later. For now I am experimenting with Smugmug.

    Looks like X2 (double Large) is as big as you want to go (using Smugmug).

    I haven't seen scroll bars in a while, can't remember if this version of VB does an auto-resize. Scroll bars are kinda a PITA.
    The SmugMug pictures look great.

    It has been a while since I have had to scroll over/through a picture. I am guessing this software must resize. I wouldn't want to post a picture that big. Scrolling kind of takes away from the picture.

    Think I will try Smugmug linking for a while.

    Thanks again

    Excellent! There are some "free" sharing sites like PhotoBucket and Fotki but the "commercial content" ads really take away from the viewing- IMO.
    The small charge on a "Smuggy" take the ads out.
