Up until last week I could just right click on a picture on my blog and paste it into my post here on TMP. Now it makes a link instead of showing the picture. Am I doing something wrong or has somebody changed the coding? I noticed that the name of the link now contains "blogger.googleusercontent" which I don't recall it having in the past

My computer skills are very limited, can wiser heads please explain?

OK, having read the FAQ I added the BBCode tag at the start and end of the URL, odd that I've never had to do this before

I always open one of my blog pictures in a new tab, then copy that URL to paste into my TMP post. As far as I know, there's never been a problem. That results in a URL ending in .jpg instead of having to add tags before and after as Anton is doing.

Col Campbell, that is exactly what I have been doing all along and it worked just fine until last week. I also just noticed that the pictures do not open in a window with the "filmstrip" along the bottom. I have to click the back button to return to the blog entry before I can view another picture. This seems to be something to do with Blogger.

Actually it is not my technique but what Dear Editor recommends in the FAQ section.
