p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Dropbox: Hosting Images for Display on FM?


Do any of you display images in your Fred Miranda posts by embedding links to images hosted on Dropbox? If so, how, please?

The below image, hosted on Dropbox, was embedded on the Lula forum but I can't figure out how to do it here. This is the text string, from Lula, that embedded the file, without the Link Here text

"Link Here: img width=800 height=533]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/87879474/Photography/Images/2012/20120519_West_Penn_Conservancy/_I9H1347.jpg">"




Many thanks,

John Caldwell

Does this work? Yes, it does. Just remove the image dimensions before the http.

Sarsfield, they are leonberger. It is a giant breed dating to the early 1800's on Leonberg Germany. The genetic foundation is St. Bernard, Newfoundland and Great Pyrenees. I could go on, but won't, other than to say our two leos are very much the center of our lives.

Thanks for asking.

That is one big horse. How much does that eat in a month?

Gorgeous (and huge) dog! Put a mane on it for Halloween and it could go trick-or-treating as a lion!

Is there a way to auto resize and post an image from dropbox?

None that i am aware of.
Dropbox is just a file storage system, so it as if you loaded it off your hard drive to view.
There isn't any processing to resize your image "properly". It is all dependent on you "viewer" (browser, etc.).

A question that I have about using Dropbox for viewing on FM....is security.

Basically...is there any ability to stop someone from taking your photos...stored on DB??
Or...is this a case of needing some type of watermark for protection?

I also did have some issues posting via dropbox. I had to remove the 's' and use 'http' instead of https

I know this is an old thread...but I just got this working and wanted to put it here for future reference, as this is the thread i found when doing a google search.


You'll have to remove the "s" from the https in the secure dropbox link and replace "www" with "dl"

xx img width=800 ]http://dl.dropbox.com/s/df39v6ewnw0oe6s/2014-10-04%2009.37.33.jpg?dl=0?dl=0[/img xx

Replace xx in the link above with [ on the left and ] on the right and you'll get this image resized to 800px on the width:



You can change other stuff about the image by following some of the tags here
