Not sure what you mean about links. Folks link all the time from various other sites, such as Pbase, Zenfolio, Smugmug, etc.

Just to be very clear, and vastly more concise, our messages here do not have links to those other sites. Instead the DPR editor uploads a copy from the URL provided, and that copy is stored on the DPR forum server.

I don'tbelieve that is correct.

If it isn't correct, then you will see a picture of an Arctic fox in the article where I explaned this in detail. If your browser is pointed at the URL used to post the two images uploaded via URL, neither of the images that show up in that message will be seen (the URL now links to a picture of an Arctic fox).

To see the Arctic fox image at the URL used to upload the other two images, one can click on the "original size" button under either of the two embedded images that were inserted via URL. The two inserted from my computer will show the original size uploaded though, and of course those are the embedded images.

Go to this post. The first image is uploaded from my computer. The second is on Zenfolio. The first shows a DPR link, the second still shows a Zenfolio link.

That article has two embedded images. The images that you see actually in the message are served directly from the DPR forum server (and are sized at 560x373 and 560x374 pixels, respectively).

The link you can see for the embedded image is a DPR link, with the interesting characteristic of having the original source link embedded. That is how they can also provide a clicky button for "original size".

If you click on the "original size" button beneath the embedded image your browser will be sent to the original link to show a full sized original image (which are 600x400 and 580x387 respectively).

Hence, it is very clear that the embedded image in a forum message is not a link, but rather an image from the forum servers. The "original size" button in indeed a link (and therefore might not point to the same image as the one that is embedded!).
