New Pic Test (Box Photo Account)

Now that PhotoBucket is useless, I am testing my Box account again.

I noticed Box updated their website to provide a different URL address when I right click on an image and select "copy image address/location".
Let's see if this works....


I can see the image above, but I am not sure if it will stay there.

Re: New Pic Test (Box Photo Account)

Yeah you more than likely still don't have public rights set right for the photo and you need a url that ends in the fully qualified file name for it to be usable with image tags. "http://publicshare.com/mypublicfolder/mypublicphoto.jpg" If it has any other crap its not going to work and is likely trying to display a page or advertising which can not be embedded in your post.

Are you using boxcloud.com, box.com, or dropbox.com? I assume boxcloud by the url but confirm. I will try to dig up the steps once I know what box service you are talking about.

This is your link from above, way too much url crap code and no qualified file name at the end. And if I paste it into a new window I don't get your photo either.

Re: New Pic Test (Box Photo Account)

Hello Brian,
Thanks for looking into this. I am using box.com
All of my images in my Box Photo Sharing Account are set up to share.

I was able to embed images into into TC posts using Box previously, but it required a lot of complicated steps... but now those steps do not work. It's weird that I was able to insert and see an embedded image within the TC post, but as soon as I do Browser Cleanup... the image disappears.

I will probably check out some of the other photo sharing websites that others have recommended.
Until then, I can still use Box to insert links to shared photos within my posts.
Thanks again!
