Howard testing image insertion with Picpaste. (2 replies and 5 comments)
I don't get it. My images above look broken now too.
I think that it is a problem with the Picpaste URLs.
I think the image URL needs to start with picpaste.com/extpics/~ as in the html copied from "Weblink (with pic)"
The images that have gone 'stale' all seem to start with picpaste.com/pics/
Can't seem to get the full size image URL from Picpaste. I think that is our failing. If you want to see the full size image, your have to go back to the Picpaste website. I suppose it's clear thinking, as they don't want to be used as free image hosting until infinity. Here is the full size image of the thumbnail shown above, if I am correct, the URL to it will automatically change at some point and cause the image to become broken:
So, provisional conclusion for Picpaste users: copy the Weblink (with pic) URL.
Yes, the broken image icon above confirms that the URLs for the actual images on picpaste are changing, so when linking to images on Picpaste, copy the Weblink (with pic) URL from Show links to this picture
