If you have not logged in to Imgur and just uploaded a picture from the opening page you can get links for shareing but you need to make a couple of clicks as they have changed the site a little.

Last year I stopped using Walagata when I was locked out after paying for 1 year days before it was due. I won't go back there.

I then started using ImgBam and was very happy with it. I went yesterday and discovered they are shutting down on June 30th so I pulled off all my images and merged what I needed with the Walagata folder that is sitting on my desktop.

Most of the forums I go to allow me to upload any picture as an attachment so storing online and hotlinking is no longer needed. Scot's is the exception.

All I wanted was to replace my signature from the ImgBam site to another one before my sig goes AWOL.

Using FF instead of Palemoon

I fired up FF to see and the site (imgur) looked different. That happens at times.

I figured out I need to right click, select "view image" and I get a different url with the correct extension.
I can put tags around that.

Just take the direct link,
The problem was no one explained how to get this "direct link". I had to stumble around, unlike other sites to figure out what to do to get a usable link with an extension.

Wrong. For those not having an account and trying to do one simple paste, no code shows - ever. Go to the site, don't log in and you'll see what I mean.

Unfortunately, after you move away from the page, there is no place to click to get anything resembling sharing.

You go here https://imgur.com/a/YfmA4 and try to click and see if you can get a sharing link.

Right click "Copy image address" Post here using the image icon. I do this with Photobucket as well.

This is what my Imgur page looks like when I select a pic from one of my albums. Note all the links methods to the right.

I figured out right click - read post #5 BEFORE anyone thought to mention it.
At ImgBam, the site generated the code as soon as an image was uploaded. I didn't have to do any clicking to see the code.

Eric, I DON'T want to create an account and login at Imgur. As I mentioned, Scot's is the only site that doesn't allow me to attach an image stored on my pc and requires me to put it somewhere.

Since image hotlinking sites keep going down and I waste time moving images back and forth between sites and my computer, I prefer to store them locally.

I see...

However, Imgur is probably the best image server that I've ever used. Their customer support is second to none. Nice folks!

Well I seem to be a bad omen. I join a site and it goes down. So, in order to keep it working for those who signed up, I won't sign up. :whistling:
