Linking from Dropbox seems rather temperamental. The only successful way seems to open the image in Dropbox; right click; copy the image address and paste between the "img" tabs, but don't add ".jpg" to the end of the link.
Any thoughts?

For Dropbox, you can click the share button then "Get link". Then edit that link to add ?raw=1 to the end.
Then that will be the direct link to the image file, so it will work in the img tags.

Nope.   Picture still not visible to me.  Chrome on Android.

Edit.  Ooh yes I can see it.  On your original post.  It was in my quoted reply above I was looking  at where it still doesn't work.

I know this thread is old but is there a way to just wave a Polaroid at my P.C. and have it uploaded? I am prepared to hold the Polaroid close to the P.C. for a maximum of 15 seconds, anything longer and it will all seem  too much faffing..........................

Nope.  That's why I fail to post images.   :(

Ok I have some pics up on Flickr which does not seem to give the right click for the URL. So... I highlighted the info in the address bar and that gives this:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/61480276@N04/37481502482/in/dateposted-public/

If I then click the infamous image button I get this: FFS.. should have been ithe bracket and the img img

So I then do this: argh the preview shos it but not the post... it should be the bracket and img then the link then the bracket and img.

And am left as usual a bit disappointed. What please is not happening as it should? That image is shrunk by Irfanview to something in the order of 400 x 500 ish.

PH, In Flickr, bring up the photo and click/tap the "Share" thing to the right of, and slightly below, the image.  Choose "BBCode", copy the link and paste it into yacf.  NB: the "copy" stage doesn't work if using Chrome on an iPad.
