    Apparently it was an issue after an update. So once I could no problem, now no picture has an address attached regardless of where I get it from.
    Has anyone any ideas how to help me?

    Email the copyright holder 😉

    How are you trying to find the address? Take it you’ve tried to open the image in a new tab in your browser then copy from the address bar?

    I’d love to help but I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. Can you rephrase the question? When you ‘once could’ what steps did you take?

    “Windows” is a broad church, you might as well say “computer”. Do you mean an app or a web browser or something else?

    “Apparently” what according to whom?

    If you turn the image over the URL is written on the back

    Right click on the image. Select “Copy image address” or “Open image in a new tab”.

    The old Underside Resource Locator.

    Sorry.

    I was always able to just click on an image and there the address was, so I could upload to forums like this.
    Now any image I view doesn’t appear to have that address. I can save, and still no address. Even my saved pictures or flickr, none have the address.

    I googled the issue, and it appears it was a common problem after a windows update. Now all discussions are closed.

    In MS Edge according to my broad Google search. Use Google Chrome…. that’d fix it.

    (Just looked on my laptop and it has “Copy image link” when I right-click on an image. Don’t you see that?)

    The link it gave me in Edge…

    I use chrome on WIndows. I just right clicked on DezB’s image and got this

    Context menu on webpage image

    clicking “copy image link” gives me https://images.prismic.io/yeticyclescom/073bbd84-6d45-4c94-9869-b88b34f96ae2_MAT_4238C.jpg

    so, what browser are you using? and can you do the same with DezB’s image?

    Ta Daaaa….

    I wasn’t getting copy image address or link, just the option to save.
    Changed browser. Now I do get copy link.

    As I said it was never a problem until end of last year?

    Still issues with my own images?

    The link above isn’t for an image, it doesn’t end in .jpg, .gif, etc. This is it here:

    That’s annoying. Check a lot of my saved images. I can share. That takes me to an option to copy the link, press that and it says copied. but it’s not working like the images that actually have the copy link option?

    Try again

    That’s the same URL. It’s not a link to an image.

    @oldgit – I can’t see any of the images in your posts but you may have been retrieving the url even so. Looking at the html, the last one has an extra http:// at the start, which might be the problem. When you paste the link into the box, delete the http:// that’s already there. This should be your image, I hope:

    cx test

    If you still have problems, you’ll need to tell us where ‘your’ images are, for example, on Flikr, on another photo website, etc.

    Google Drive is not a photo hosting site, it is a file store. You can’t (as far as I’m aware) embed them into the forum directly from there, you’ll need to upload them somewhere else.

    Cougar. That would explain how easy it was to post that earlier image.
    Yet I still couldn’t embed images from my saved pictures.
    When I searched the issue, the upgrade that started the issue was a joint Windows Google affair?

    Grrrrrr. I used to embed images no problem, here and on other sites

    Probably been noticed, but the first link was wrong anyway
    http://https//1drv.ms/u/s!AlvYXwNXIY8WsiLCAYVZH0-uFNZ_”

    needed the second “https//” removed

    and that last one is a link to the page not the image, the jpg is

    (from right-click copy image address, then getting a tinyurl of the link, cos it’s too long and messy)

    Retrobike

    Tried from Flickr. right click gives no option to copy, share nothing. Save and print and cast only

    Tried from Flickr. right click gives no option to copy, share nothing

    For me, if I’m viewing a single image (not an album) in Flickr, there are 3 icons at bottom right, a star, a leaping arrow and download arrow. The leaping arrow in the middle is Share and gives a url for the image.

    The retrobike one has the same double http error

    (I got “Create QR code for this image” which is a new one on me 😀 )

    With just http:// at the start, works fine
