OK  multiple testing has sussed it for you ...

your original link:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xke7ybxiv7hm7gy/ArchWelded.jpg?dl=0

you add the tags and it doesn't work



now .. simply change the dl=0 to dl=1

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xke7ybxiv7hm7gy/ArchWelded.jpg?dl=1

add the tags and .....   voila




dl=1 forces the picture to be downloaded, so it opens. If you click the link it will open in your photo application not a web browser

You will need to save as the size you want as well .. no resize option on dropbox that I can find

Only paid for accounts in the last few years can  have a public folder.

For everyone else, just right click on the file you want to share which must be in the drop box folder on your pc.
Then click 'share dropbox link'
it shares it, and puts the link in your clipboard so you just need to paste it in here (adding any image links etc you want too)

I have been doing 'just' that. Copying and pasting the link isn't a problem, it is that the link that they provide doesn't do what they say it will! Anywhere, not only on this site.
Further to Nigel's testing I will have another try later, but having to change the given link is a massive opps up!

Ive just done the getting started guide....can you do the same with this, or any other file, regardless if the link works or not

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9t3hr2c6s5auijo/Get%20Started%20with%20Dropbox.pdf?dl=0

Sorted, as per Entwood.

Looks like there is no way to copy and paste the new system and have it work, annoyingly.

But changing the dl=0 to dl=1 does work, as below, just delete the spaces from the img tags

Fingers crossed. If this works, thank you all for you help. If it doesn't I'm going to kick the cat

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.
