Where do your store pictures?!?!

Hello all,

Looking to DM for the first time using Lost Mines. My question is how do you handle pictures? I need to have a URL for them so I have to have them on the web...right? Where do you guys store the pictures?

Hey Begon,

I use my Dropbox storage. You can request a public link address for each uploaded file. The link address you get will end in:
Code:
?dl=0
You have to change it into:
Code:
?raw=1
Look at the BBCode of this post, for example.

Cheers,

DM

This was so helpful! Thanks! The one thing I noticed was that your post had IMGL while the image button only gives me IMG as the bookends in brackets. It didn’t work until I added the L like you had. Am I doing something wrong in pressing the image shortcut?

The various codes are listed here: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/misc.php?do=bbcode

It seems that the IMGL and IMGR tags allow an image caption, while the IMG tag doesn't.

I used GoDaddy to get a free website, then I just drop them there and link them with IMG tags.
