    I want to add photos to my blog via URL but NOTHING seems to work anymore. Nothing I’ve read in the forums has helped. I’ve tried flckr, photobucket and even me.com
    Blog url: http://jupiterseightharch.wordpress.com/

    Both services offer a photo page as well as the image file.

    Are you sure that you’re using the link to the actual file and not the photo page? It should end in .jpg, .png, or .gif

    I am using the URL they are giving me… for example

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/jupiterseightharch/6329517531/

    This is what used to work when trying to insert a photo via URL (so that the photo shows up, not a link).

    How do I find a different link ending in .jpg , .png or .gif?

    Thank you

    This won’t work because it is a web page link and not an image link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jupiterseightharch/6329517531/

    On Flickr, you can go to Actions → View all sizes, then right-click on the image and find the option that says something like ‘Copy image URL.’ Doing that should copy a direct image URL of the image like this: http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6214/6329517531_c768ab50cf.jpg

    Note that the wording for ‘Copy image URL’ may be slightly different depending on what browser you are using.
