Hi Pekka or everyone for that matter.....
I tried to link a url to a photo on YAHOO! photos.....
Is it possible to link or embed directly with photos on Yahoo!?
The photo i was trying to link is located at:
Can you please help me?
The only alternative I can find is to create a link to the whole album in yahoo....... But i'd rather not do this....

Actually the link did allow me access to all of your personal photos
What you can do is to edit setting of those pictures to allow level of access
Log on yahoo photo with your id and password and edit setting which is at top right corner
Limit those you want to share with everyone to 'open to public'
Another way is to open another yahoo account just to public viewing which does not cost u anything anyway.
But people will have access to clear or delete your photo file.
Hope this could be of some help

I fixed the link coding, but the link brings you to a page where you need to log in to Yahoo. I think that some other service would be easier for online sharing.

The link I've used in:
seems to work fine - I took the URL using Opera 6.1's 'Copy Image Address' feature - often that gives a different address to that shown in browser headings - perhaps that's the difference - at least it shows that yahoo can be used for linking images...
Here's the image in question from above:

I get an "X" when you use the yahoo link. perhaps the image was in your cache and your browser was substituting it?
some free sites for remote loading purposes.
www.galeon.com -- unlimited space/unlimited bandwidth, sometimes slow. they have ftp access as well as browser upload options, but i never was able to get the ftp option to work properly.
www.netfirms.com -- 25Mb space and 1Gb/month bandwidth. remote linking possible.
www.topcities.com -- 150Mb space, i forgot how much bandwidth, but remote linking is possible. fast ftp access, sometimes limited to 15 people at a time.
hope this helps,
please check out my photo exhibit (link listed in my post in the Gallery forum) and send me some feedback since I'm still trying to learn the G1, and its optimum shooting conditions, thanks!
