This is a test of pic picture:

https://jimep.imgur.com/all/
works great

third party hosting no issues.

fwiw: I'm happy with Imgur with the codes spreadsheet images.
With the spreadsheet images, getting the approximate image size correct helped with output display.

I guess I have learning to do with Imgur. For example, why didn't my image appear in my test post?

Basically because you coded an URL link to the page, not an IMG link top the picture file.

[URL]https://jimep.imgur.com/all/[/URL] shows like https://jimep.imgur.com/all/

and [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/19ZOkRGb.jpg[/IMG] shows like


Google bbcode for an explanation about these codes.
And if you see a post containing whatever you'd like to do yourself, hit the Quote button as the reply message will then contain the BBCode from that post.

Two quick hits:
Imgur shows 6 or so example links at the side of each photo. One of them contains a complete BBCode link for that picture. You can just copy that and paste it in a post as is.

If you have a picture somewhere on the web and want to share that, then right-click on it and choose Copy image address, then Edit or Quote a post, put the cursor where you want to insert it, click on the picture icon in the top (the mountains with yellow sky and black sun) and paste it in the URL image address field shown in the popup.

(actually I expect you already knew most of this, but expanded for general info)

Woops ...Checking on closer inspection of your imgur post of the instrument cluster, the displayed image here is presenting with the edges cropped from your original pic.:confused:
I'm not too sure but maybe the pic was automatically reformatted from 600x400 to a square size loosing the edges.


Below is shown the same posted original image in your url on imgur; seen reformatted by cropping and for demo with the colors/sharpness/brightness etc slightly altered with changes superimposed by a few of imgur's 'advanced editing' tools online.


What you may have to do is resize the image to configure to screen output desired [160 x 160?], then copy the direct link [second url selection in list / copy image address^^] and paste. I hope that helps.

Learning Curve

Sounds like a steep learning curve. I'll just continue to use my tried and proven method of attaching photos in the IC posts directly. That results in thumbnails, but at least it is easy and I don't have to learn something new in a time of personal stress;)

But, thanks for the help folks!
