    Problem with embedding an image from a url

    Hi, I've had problems recently embedding images from pixcentrel. When I embed, the image shows as being broken. The url appears to be fine and has an image size of less than 350k. I haven't have this problem in the past and am wondering what's up. Help?

    Embedding image where - in a form? If you mean in your post, that does some to be an issue as I don't see it - have to click the link.

    I've never pulled in images from a website into a form. You have successfully done this?

    Sorry, yes in a post. When you click on the pic icon above, it gives you two options to create an image to view. The first is from a file in your computer. The problem I found is that this image is always tiny and impossible to view. But there's another option there, to create the pic using an url. The url is generally an image hosting website, which has created a public image of your file (many of these are free). But for some reason when I've been using the url option lately, it's not embedding the image. Really annoying.

    Then this is not an Access question and moved thread to General Chat forum.
