I am trying to post my first image but when I put the link Deviant Art provides nothing shows up. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Here is the link http://fav.me/d4s7nfd I should just be able to put that in img brackets but nothing.

Thanks,

That's the link to the page.  Not the image.

The image is here:  http://th09.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2012/068/c/9/sand_sculpture_by_dddphoto-d4s7nfd.jpg



Nice image   afro

Thanks, but where did you get the link from?

Just right click on the image  (Command + click on a Mac), then choose the appropriate option  (it changes what it's called from browser to browser, but all should be obvious).

I'm also having problems here.
I'm trying to add an image to the Mandelbulb 3D gallery from my DA account.
I've tried using the advice above but keep getting told that no uploaded image has been found, so I guess I'm missing something, probably something very basic.

Could somebody give me a step by step in very, very basic laymans terms?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT:
Got it working in the Rate My Fractal section. I'll assume that the MY Gallery section just works slightly differently and post future images in the former section. smiley

You can't upload from another website. 

You can only upload from your computer.

Are you trying to get the gallery to take an image from DA or your hard drive?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I was trying to link from DA to My Gallery. I've realised now that this won't work and that I'd have to re-size and upload from my PC.
Linking to Rate My Fractal works fine so I'll be using this option in future.

you may link from DA (just you have to use the image link not the page link : RIGHT click on the image and chose "copy image address") just you can't NOT upload from DA

The FF  gallery is supposed to be for images hosted locally here but in the post (or even in the comment to your image) you may show image posted elsewhere
