Quick favour?
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:21:23 AM »
Hi guys. Can I ask a quick, work-related favour? Can you click on this link and see if it opens an autumn-themed image for you? Many thanks! https://1drv.ms/i/s!AqjBIp3LuLL3g98tkBxoqc24KG8iwA

I received a sign for one drive, but in the background I see autumn leaves, so that might be what you wanted.

Thanks, guys. Guess I need to find an alternative method for hosting the image then. I just want to provide a link in a newsletter article so that anyone clicking on it can view the image in question.

That one works.  Came up lovely and clear.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

It also worked internationally since I could see it, too.

Hi Nick. I'm in California, if that makes a difference.

The first link opened with an initial log in to Microsoft but that faded to bring the Autumn leaves and quote into the foreground. 

The second link you offered opens directly to an Autumn image on a black background in Imgur. The overall image was more prominent here.

Hope it helps.
