How can i create a picture link for an slurl?

Question

You have to have an image hosting service, such as flickr, photobucket, your own ISP if they have picture hosting, etc. and put the picture URL in the proper field. If you look at the picture What I have circled in red you click on to get the white pop up window where you fill in all the information about the destination you want to submit.

Thanks for your reply, Malanya, i apologize that i wasnt detailed enough, i thought maybe there was an image link from the viewer itself from the images i take from in there, but what i do is put my images on my hardrive, then run them through my ftp program to get onto my web hosting, so actually i did go through all that that you had mentioned because i used an image link from my web hosting service, the problem i have is that when i use the slurl with the image link, i dont see my image when it goes to the slurl page, only SL's image comes up, as you may see here at my slurl>

So, i also tried your idea of using a Flickr photo, which i did here:

But still my link does not show my image, but still the man and woman in the sl image when i use the slurl. my image is sized below the 250 x 250, so i just dont know what i am doing wrong. :-( if you can see my slurls i put here, and if you can see my image, please let me know and i will continue to use the first one thats hosted on my own webpage. if you cannot see my image, i dont know what else to do, really, i have tried using gifs, png's, and jpg's. thanks so much for your help! :-)

Hi Pari,

I can't see the image on your web site, but I can view the image on the Flickr site. the only thing I can think of (years of doing ebay and my own image hosting and custom pages) is that with your domain you may not have the picture set to "public" I have made that error before and same with Flickr, there are many photo permissions on flicker. Make sure you have the image sized to sl specs I wouldn't trust them sizing it for you it will probably cause an error. Also make sure that your slur to your sim is correct because that may do something odd, sl has its own mind sometimes and I am wondering if because today is Tuesday with restarts, things go wonky. Try and see again if the permission is set to public on your own site and that Flickr settings is allowing the pic to be hosted outside of Flickr.

well, i havent put the picture itself on my website pages, its just in the images file of the website, which the url i put on here for the image is for the image only, not just the site. this has worked for me before, which is why i think things changed with the slurl site itself. the slurl i created is correct for the coordinates, and it does take you to the exact place for my store, but the image url is what isnt working and its to the 250 x 250 pixel specification as well. i am not sure if the flicr image url i used is correct either, and it is set to public as well, because when i put it to the slurl, that pic didnt show up either, which is why i think i am missing something in the image url, but i just cant figure it out no matter how many times i try different things and i have searched all over the net for answers, lol. thanks for your input, i will keep working on it til i find it, cheers! :-)

and i see the url for my websites image didnt copy in full detail on here, it was cut off after i pasted it in here, lol.  so i can see why it took you to my website and said 'oops no image', lol, instead of the picture image, the image itself is called 'Ad for slurl5 small.jpg, and i created .png, and also .gif,  which goes after '/images/'and cant get any of them to work, lol, ugg, SL technology is killing me, haha. always so intricate, lol.  i will go ahead and post the image to the webpage itself to see if that will make it work, thanks for that idea, this is helping me to get your ideas very much, and this is a great brainstorming thing going on!   thanks!!!  :-)

Even thought this link is cutoff by SL, it still goes to the right slurl coordinates, but still no image as i put it on my website, lol, here is the image url:

This link does show the image, but when inserted into the slurl, it wont show up on the slurl page when clicked, i think  i might just give up, lol, thanks!  :-)
