    Linking to pictures on Dropbox

    I tried embedding pictures from my Dropbox account, but the only thing that worked was posting the URL. Everytime I tried embedding the image link for the picture to show in the post, the link was broken.

    Finally switched to hosting the images on Imgur, but now I would like to know what I did wrong with the Dropbox option.

    Dropbox doesn't work yeah, it has to be a publicly hosted file somewhere. You can right click copy image source for images on FB

    Thanks for the info, started to worry that the problem was sitting in front of the screen...

    I wouldn't advise to use FB either. They are always shifting things around to prevent hot-linking, so your photos will come up broken and not display after a while. I recommend a free photo hosting service that allows you to hot-link or embed, such as Imgur
