None of the image link addresses I use work in editor


#1

It seems like none of the image link addresses that I paste in the editor are viewable. Hardly any of my images show up. I have been using Google Images and other various sites. Is there a better site to use for images? Do the addresses need to include a .png or .jpg at the end? If so, I am already doing that. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hey,

yes they do need to include the image type unless the code is shortened ..
Could you paste in the code so I can have a look

This link is the link to the page you need to right click on the image and copy image url

This is the URL for the image: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5d/Alejandro_Gonz%C3%A1lez_I%C3%B1%C3%A1rritu_with_a_camera_in_production.jpg/800px-Alejandro_Gonz%C3%A1lez_I%C3%B1%C3%A1rritu_with_a_camera_in_production.jpg

This link doesnt have any text .. You need to add between the a tags

I suggest you use short links as would be easier

make sure when getting image from any site using a mac follow this to get proper address:
1. click Control and copy image address NOT image url
2.

you don't need to add .jpg or .png it should already have that included.
