I'm unfamiliar with how dropbox works, so maybe someone can chime in.

When you upload a photo to dropbox does it then give you a url for the photo that can be hotlinked?

If so, copy the link and paste it between the Image tags.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Is there a space between the brackets and the link? I don't think it's a url that can be hot linked. I just pasted the link in "Old mining shack" under the Ghost Towns topic and that seems to work if you click on it. I'm trying to do this from my mobile phone as my puter is being worked on.

Sorry, but DropBox does not work that way. I wish it did. I have a number of pictures I wish I could link, but have to settle for just putting the link into the message and not into an [img] block.
