    Lol “the other place”

    Sounds like it should be accompanied by scary music.

    It would be nice to post images locally and not have to depend on third parties that come and go, but I understand the desire to avoid the cost of storage space and the potential for having to deal with copyright issues...

    I'm working off Chrome on my cellphone.

    I uploaded the pic to OneDrive and added it to an album. I don't think that's required though.
    I went to the image. And clicked the '...' button at the top. There was an option <embed>. Click that and a window comes up with a button 'generate'. That makes a link like:

    https://gpmrba.bl.files.1drv.com/y4...4cdlt90A?width=4160&height=2080&cropmode=none

    I know. It's not a standard link. But it works.

    There's also an option that says 'copy link' that gives a link in this format:
    https://1drv.ms/u/s!Anj1ZjnfhV3qk1io0Z0hcfJrXdGV
    And that doesn't work.

    I can't figure out how to do this from the OneDrive app on my phone. The 'copy link' button is in the OneDrive app.

    On the web version on PC it's easy. When you go to the image there's an embed button at the top. A side bar opens with the embed link.

    Part of why I was asking is that 1drv is not listed as an acceptable source and I haven't been able to get anything not listed to work. I was trying to use dropbox, for example and couldn't do it.

    OneDrive is the only cloud space that gives you the option to generate embed codes. (I think)
    If Google drive or Dropbox have the option, I have yet to find them.

    It was just a “before posting/ after posting” thing. I didn’t change any setting to the browser.

    That's my brother and his wife. They live in Tennessee now (where that pic was taken), but were in Wisc for many years.

    No e in cybrguy is why I didn't see this sooner.
