The link you gave.
Links to a web page that contains the image. There's a crucial difference, because the forum gallery software isn't smart enough to parse the web page and guess which image you really meant to specify..
Which I pulled from the 'image code' part of the above web page (note: do NOT use the [IMG][/IMG] tags around it those are used for some other forum software like UBB but not here yields.

Okay, what does this mean - (note: do NOT use the [IMG][/IMG] tags around it those are used for some other forum software like UBB but not here yields.
So did you just go to that web page and open the picture then cut and paste? Bare with me...I'm very new to this! THANKS!.
So I definitely can't just post from iPhoto?..

Okay so I found the link to the image but why isn't it appearing on this page?..
The requirements of such a URL are, pretty much.
1- leads straight to the image, not to a web page containing the image and stuffaround it.
2- ends in .jpg, or probably .JPG, so that the forum software realizes that it's animage link (if it looks like 'blah=foo.jpg?width=640&height=480 the parametersat the end will stop it from being embedded).
3- web server must not be set up to prohibit such linking (some web pages willcheck a tag that the web browser normally sends, citing the page which refersto that image and if the referrer doesn't belong to that site, some webservers will refuse to provide the image)..
I don't know iPhoto, but if you can get such a URL for an image (and iPhoto may provide instructions with such URLs) it might work. I found that image by looking at your recent messages and following the most recent attempt that is, the URL which went to a page containing the image in question. The page itself had URLs in the lower right..
The [IMG] tags, as I noted, are used by some other forum software to mark the enclosed URL as an image. DPReview's software works differently; it looks for URLs that end in .jpg, and assumes that you intend to embed them -unless- you end the URL with a semicolon (in which case it shows up as a link, without the semicolon)...
Thanks for your help!.
