    If you put your cursor in the middle of the screen where your photo is you should see the control you are looking for. If you move your cursor around the screen that line should come and go.

    If you fly me out to Colorado I will be glad to show you...

    I’m on my iPad so....... I have no cursor.

    Yeah I have to confess...Colorado is the bees-knees! In every way. :)

    Sorry, I have no idea how to direct you on a tablet, tho it really shouldn't be any different. I would guess that tapping on the photo should bring up the menu.

    Yeah, I have loved Colorado since my first visit to go backpacking in about 1970. I WILL be out there eventually...

    What makes it so frustrating is that there’s NO option for a Menu and NO amount of tapping anywhere brings one up. So close...but so far.

    But thanks for your help...I really appreciate it! :)

    I can’t even count the number of good times I’ve had in Colorado...so getting to live here has been a real blessing (somewhere in my youth and childhood I must have done something good.....)

    @fcmember I have same problem as you with iPad issues.
    I have figured out a way to get to the menu options... although I still haven’t quite figured out how to post pics consistently.

    So, when on Safari on imgur site, click on the share button to the right of URL. Choose option to “request desktop site.”
    Once you are redirected, click on your username drop down in upper right corner and click on “images.”
    Then click on an image and you will now see a bunch of URL’s similar to @cybrguy screenshot.
    From there.. well, now I am stymied. The “copy” link didn’t work for me, but I was manually able to copy the URL.
    And this is what I got...

    Maybe you can pick up where I went wrong and figure out how to bring it home!

    1. went to URL, then removed the .img at the end of it
    2. have album URL (imgur.com/a/). Want direct link to image. right click on image, copy image address
    this can be tricky, because imgur doesn't always let you copy the image address anywhere in the image, it has some stuff over it. or when uploading, it takes a while to make the image url link (before then, you get some weird blob URL that won't work). But the link you want looks like i.imgur.com/Something.jpg/png/etc
    This is the image URL in this case https://i.imgur.com/Gwq3O3i.jpg
    3. Click the image button next to the smilies button. Paste the URL in the box where it says image URL. done

    I don't know if you are still struggling with this, but if you add https: after removing the quote marks that will open.

    https://imgur.com/i9nkp

    If you put it inside the window you get by clicking the image icon (sixth from right in compose window), and add .jpg to the end you will get the image displayed.
