    HI Gregory, just wanted to check you are using the correct URL. What you need to do is view the image in http://www.photoshelter.com/mem/images/ and choose 'Get links and embed code' from the 'Actions' drop down menu. The 'Direct image link' will provide what you need - and you can change the size of the image by editing the number in the URL immediately before the jpg file name. The number you use will be the length of the longest edge in pixels. Here's an example from my site:

    http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000KSrKqwzVnKo/s/500/I0000KSrKqwzVnKo.jpg (long edge 500 px)

    http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000KSrKqwzVnKo/s/1000/I0000KSrKqwzVnKo.jpg (long edge 1000 px)

    Hi Nick.
    I'm having the same problem that Gregory was having and can't get your solution to work. In the Images section of the member area, the Actions drop down doesn't have the option you list for 'Get links and embed code.' I keep trying to use the web link on the right hand panel (which has a button to copy the link to clipboard) but that just gives a broken image link icon on my About page.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Jason

    Have you double-clicked on the image thumbnail to show it full size? The menu only shows this item when you view the image this way

    Great, thanks Nick. The double-click for full size works.

    Nick, is 1000px the longest dimension that this will show up? Is there any setting to change this to 1200 or what not?

    Adhika - as far as I can tell, 1000 pixels is the largest size you can use this for.

    ...and how do you avoid a watermark? Setting the specific gallery holding image to watermarks "Off" doesn't stop the HTML embed putting it back again.
