BTW- Why is it that anything media I post never ever seems to work until Corpse comes along to fix it? ...
Because you guys can't grasp the concept of what a proper URL is.
You were using: http://www.flickr.com/photos/83861940@N05/8354975404
Which is no good. As it stands, that URL points to the page that has that image and you can't do that when trying to display the image you want, you need to specifically point to the image you want to show up there. Look at the end of the URL, its not pointing to the image. If it was then it would have something ending with a .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp, ect...
The correct URL should have been: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8215/8354975404_ee88d6bef2_z.jpg
hope this explanation helps a little for you and all the others I have to keep editing because of this one mistake.

In this video, I will show you how I got it. Just want to give everyone a heads up, it is always possible to get the image URL or the image. There are several different ways around security that protect from hot linking them.

OOOOOOHHHHH !@#!#@ facepalm
I do what you did for other pics all the time, mostly to get images from google though. I never thought to do it for the forum images. When sites like Flkr offer the "share link" I've always figured that's it. This should be a sticky for forum noobs and vets who hate social media idioocracy.
OK much better.
