^^ if they don't have the correct well nut, write down the bolt size and the thread pitch from the little wall plate thingy, and do a quick search online and order it. Or 4. You'll likely get a much better price somewhere other than a motorcycle parts dealer.

KLRCraig I'm-o try IMGUR for a bit...
When I click my Pics it does indeed take me to the page that Insan3Guy shared above.
I think I'll select the 2nd link box down which is called
"Direct Link"?

The BBCode link in imgur should do the same function. It should provide an URL that ends in .jpg. There should be no need to open the image in a new tab or append a .jpg to an imgur URL. I have to do that when I am trying to fix a problem and I have to coax a proper URL out of the user's improper imgur link, but the user should be able to provide a proper URL to the forum in the first place.

That is the first time I have seen the user interface for imgur. Thanks for sharing
Ah, I see where you're coming from. Imgur really should do a better job when it comes to proper image hosting in that case. In anything but the user interface in their own gallery, all of the options in my screenshot are gone, and even in that interface it doesn't tell you what stuff would be resized to. With all the changes in both their mobile app and website in the last few years, you'd think they'd find time to put in a frickin text box to tell people what they're resizing their images to.

Oh that? That's just my computer that I built from the bottom up.

Yeah, I'm on imgur way more than I'd like to admit. It's not an obvious way to get a link, but you can also right click > 'open image in new tab' for anything on there and it'll send you to the direct image page.

This is the view in the user's own gallery, and it includes copy paste links for all sorts of stuff over on the right:


PS: imgur also has a native resizing feature (done automatically by clicking in the 'sizes' category in the bottom right of the gallery user interface). Normal URLs contain 7 characters for the original image, but you can add a lowercase: "S" (for 'small' square [crops rectangular images to square]), "B" (for 'big' square), "T" (for small thumbnail), "M" (for medium thumbnail), "L" (for large thumbnail), and "H" (for huge thumbnail).
My image above has a lowercase L (for a large thumbnail) on the end of the 7-character string in the URL, so imgur resized the original 1500x1060px image to 640x452px.
