Well, that was a bust. Something is still hinky in the system. My third screen shot is showing as an attached image, not in the message body, and my link didn't work. Razzlefrats!

Edit: I moved to my iPad, and things seem somewhat normal(ish). I couldn't even edit on my desktop. I give up...

The results are...
What O/S and browser are you using? I've got Windows 7 and I've tried that method in IE and Firefox, I don't get the last window where I can copy the link. I can right-click on the various sizes and then choose to copy the link. But if I paste that in the browser It asks me if I want to save or open. If I choose open, it opens my picture editing software.

I tried your method and mine, then compared the links:
https://farm1.staticflickr.com/548/2...f9174f_o_d.jpg
https://farm1.staticflickr.com/548/2...4ff9174f_o.jpg

The first one asks if I want to open or download [your method]
The second one just opens the picture. [my method]

See the _d just before .jpg? I guess that means download. Maybe I have a setting that is different from yours.....somewhere.

Rich, did you open the image at the size you want? I then right click on that image to get the box with the image address.

Other than that, I can only guess it's an Apple vs Windows difference. I use Safari and FireWeasel (fox) on Apple products.

The button you say to select is the download button for me. That presents various sizes of the image. If I left-click, it asks if I want to open or save the image. Open will start up my photo editing tool. If I right-click I can copy the link, but that link, when pasted into a browser, also tries to download the image.

However, if I can just remember to remove the _d right before .jpg, I get the correct link information.

It is a download button, so I guess it's 'working as designed'.

Rich,

Bear in mind this comment is coming from an old Windows programmer and security person.

Have you considered moving to Apple?

When I retired, I was so sick of Microsoft and Windows that I bought an Apple. For me it was the right choice.

I have an Apple //e with duo disk drive and Epson dot matrix printer in the closet upstairs. Does that count? The power supply failed last time I booted up and can't find a replacement.

I've programmed Cobol on mainframes, Assembler (just a tad), something called DE-RPG, some Unix scripting, PeopleSoft and a few other things. I've made the rounds with asset management / inventory, disaster recovery, change management, service desk and other things. I must have PO'd a lot of people over the years to get those last few assignments

But I have never programmed in Windows, so I guess I have that going for me. (OK, I did do some .bat files) I've used Windows from 3.1 up to 7, now I'm retired. I still do some part time work for the company supporting a Unix application for file transfer. It gives me spending money to support the AS and gives me place to hide when the wife is vacuuming.

I don't want to switch to Apple, I'm too engrained in Winders now. Mostly I do email, this forum and shopping at Amazon. I think when they all die I'll just scrap 'em and stick with the smart phone. Maybe I'll go fishin'

My last assignment was leading an application development team of about 160 folks, plus an information security group. For fun I negotiated software contracts. When I retired, I never wanted to re enter that world again, hence one more reason for Apple. Fishing and pointing cameras at stuff is far more satisfying. Next month will be the 8th year since I left that rat race.

I was just able to post pictures to the Forums in the normal manner and time frame. I hope that the issues are resolved.
