Photos no longer displaying

Up until yesterday embedded images were formatted like this dropbox.com/u/####/folder/filename.  They had no extension, but were working fine.  Today all the images stopped working.  I went in dropbox and it says it can't view files without extensions, which is fine, so I added .png and changed the links in the img tags.  They display in dropbox now, but still didn't work on the website.  The only way I can seem to get the images to appear now is to generate a link, /s/##letters##/filename.ext?raw=1  

 

Did something change?  Is there a simpler way to do this. Thanks in advance!

You were using the Public folder to host these images. The Public folder was a feature that was deprecated in October of 2012, replaced by Share Links. The Public folder feature was fully removed on September 1, 2017.

That's the corret way to use Dropbox to host an image now. There's no other way to do it.
