Can someone help me with the link below? This a sample of one of my photos from Facebook.

---------------------

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.387976881266227.89503.100001617547985&type=3#!/photo.php?fbid=388662714530977&set=a.387976881266227.89503.100001617547985&type=3&theater

---------------------

What I would like to do is to be able to post a picture like this within a Facebook post and hide the messy link, if possible. I'm not using the correct tags, but you get the idea of what I'm trying to do.

@Reyn,
Or, perhaps this link instead. This is a sample "Properties".

What am I missing?

@Reyn,
I think I know what you mean, check your facebook, I just copied the link, ctrl V, after the photo posted I removed the link.

@Reyn,
<img> and </img> are HTML Image tags. Comparable tags in PHP (which is how A2K is written) are identical except for using square brackets instead of angle brackets. Plus you do not write ="whatever the link is" for images here, although you do use that structure for links, e. g. URL for a pic which is coded like so -
Code:[url="https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg"]URL for a pic[/url]


However, as you have surmised, that's not enough. There are a few things going on here.
1) Facebook does actually restrict a lot of pics, depending upon your own personal settings. I was able to see the first link without being logged into FB but recognize that sometimes settings do mess things up.
2) The actual link for that pic is as follows -
https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg
How did I do that?

Right-click on the pic itself and select "copy image URL".

How do I get it to show up here as an image and not a URL?

Put it between PHP img tags -
https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg which is coded like this -
Code:[img]https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg[/img]


In short, first right-click on the pic itself and get the actual link for the photograph. Don't just copy the FB link as FB adds all sorts of other stuff (likely this is coding to indicate the name of the album you've put the image in, and the settings for said album).

@jespah,
Sorry, I probably didn't make myself clear (but thanks, Jes! Smile).

This is the URL from the individual photo below, from an FB album. I know how to find this on an individual photo. Also, I don't want to share a whole album, just an individual photo within my FB album.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg

I"m looking to share it (for example) within Facebook, not A2K, but I want to get rid of the messy link line.

I know I need HTML tags within Facebook.

What I am trying to do is place the link within someone's else's post thread that I have not started on Facebook.

If I do this within Facebook, the photo preview works just fine. You click on the little photo, taking you to the large one, which is what I want.

<img>https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg</img>

But, there is a lot of messy link lines showing, which I would like to hide.

This is why I thought it may be something like this:

<img="https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/396067_388662714530977_1268838384_n.jpg">flower</img>

The end result would be that the link line is hidden, showing only the word "flower". I know you can do this in BB code.

Is the reason it is not working due to a Facebook restriction, or have I missed some additional HTML tags?

Really?

In all seriousness, I don't know that I've ever seen anyone use HTML just to share a photo or link or the like on FB.

That’s what I’ve been finding out, I posted on my original facebook page and everyone it telling me you can’t remove the link within a post you can only remove the preview of the image.

@jcboy,
I'm not sure what the problem is - I remove the links as a matter of standard practice when I'm sharing/linking photos at FB.

If you have the image file on your own computer and click the "Add photo/video" link at the top of FB and then the "Upload photo/video" link and finally under the text "Select an image or video file on your computer.", click the "Browse" button, you can upload an image which appears just as it is, under "(Your name) added a new photo"

@ehBeth,
I do that all the time too, but for instance when I comment on someone's post and add an image to that post the link shows up and I can't seem to remove it without the photo being removed. The messy link remains.
