@Bart Swerts Don't worry, nobody reads the rules;) Paste a direct link (not a shortened/share link) to embed an image.

So, I gues the link I provided did not work?

wonder how I change my settings in iCloud 🧐?

I think it's iCloud-related. I tried the "copy address" on the image and it still only does give the indirect iCloud link. Even "Download" still hides the actual address. I guess Apple really don't want you using the web like it's supposed to be used.

Googled "direct image link from icloud" and this came up, for example: https://www.ampercent.com/get-direct-link-icloud-file/28416/

You can try that, or use another less annoying image host:)

I moved this into its own topic.

Just to be clear, the forum can only deal with a direct link, like this:

Quote

icloud.com/something/image.jpg

Anything else (besides Youtube/Insta/Facebook embeds) doesn't seem to be supported.

Thanks 🙏,

your great @meepmeepmayer

just to test this one time before I get back to the other topic can you try it one more ?https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0Mn-xuqSXvtFfQC6eIXgwqBrw#JPEG-afbeelding

When you follow the link it require a icloud login. So if you have something to make this public shared without login it might be able to work. But I am not an Apple user.

As an example on how I can do from Flicker

No. It allows me to download it or to add it to my iCloud stuff. But no embed anywhere.

It's just a link to a Facebook photo album. No embed.

In doubt just use something like imgbb (dedicated simple image host). The direct links are hidden behind a share link (I guess it's like that mostly everwhere, they want you to visit their site) but you can easily get a direct link by right-clicking/long-tapping the image and copying the adress.

Feel free to keep trying:)

But you got it right in the other post so you figured it out.
