Broken links to pictures

Hi there!

I've just noticed that a fair few pictures that I've put up seem not to be displaying any more. They were working fine when I posted them, and were successfully visible for several weeks after that, but now some (not all) display a broken link image instead.

Any ideas? It's not at all impossible that I've done something silly here...

Thanks a lot for the support, and generally for the fantastic site!

That usually happens when you link to an image (rather than upload it to the CC server) - and the linked source is removed or unavailable.

As an example, here's a post of yours with a missing image:

The code behind the linked image is:

You've linked to an image in your Gmail account - which, whilst visible when you initially linked to it, disappears when you file the email or move / remove the attachment. :okay:

Try saving the images to your desktop and uploading them - that should fix it. :okay:

Cheers,
Shaun :biggrin:

Thank you very much! That explains things! Some of the other broken links must be due to similar issues - I'll upload directly as you suggest.

Cheers!
