Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Looks like the same kind of difficulty as posting uToob videos...

so Rob it looks like none of what you posted is a direct link to the image itself.  if the URL ends in a .jpg .png or such then that would imply it does, but those are links to a folder/webpage that has the image on it.


Maybe like this ?

I brought up the picture, right clicked, chose 'copy image address'... doesn't look like it's going to work, either.


*edit... look at that, it did work ! At least in the Chrome browser.

bugger..i thin that the google pix are tied back to who has access tot he image in Google Pix.   
Rob: was that image public?
Were people able to see my sink picture?  That is in an unlisted folder and i am guessing now that no  one else can see it!

I've used quite a few of the free image hosts, from WebShots, kiteaddiction, PhotoBucket, Picassa and now imgur.

It's free, allows hot-links and its URLs are compact, not paragraphs of text. The smaller URLs might be easier to copy/paste on portable devices.

Here's the image's URL: http://i.imgur.com/EnsMiYc.jpg


There's are also size options that you can chose from tiny to full sized., this is the medium size:


clickable thumbnail


and do not forget you can very quickly make your image into a meme too!!!!!
