Jeremy: do what I explained 3 messages above. Basically, after you upload the image, you go to imgbb (by clicking on the image in the preview) and grab the direct link to the full image, which you replace for the cropped image link.

Hmmm, tried that, but maybe I did something wrong. Can you give a complete example with an imgbb photo and the exact code?

Sizing photos

Say, what kind of link did you ask for when you uploaded that photo to ibb? My photos are usually too big, and the "width=800 height=450" attributes don't seem to help.
When you upload a photo to ibb there is an icon with a pencil that you can use to edit the size of the image BEFORE uploading it:



I recommend the maximum dimension not bigger than 800 pixels.

Good tip. Then what kind of link do you ask for? There are at least 8.

You can either select the BBcode under Embed Codes => Full Image (linked) or, what I do, simple right-click on the image, copy the url of the image and link it as any other image.
