Direct Link To Image or Embed Image - broken

Direct Link To Image or Embed Image - broken

Hello everyone I'm trying to Upload a Picture and create a direct link to embed it on a website.

I've done it before and normally the link looks like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/abc07de134fg78/NameOfThePicture.jpg?dl=0

It was possible to change this link into:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent/s/abc07de134fg78/NameOfThePicture.jpg?dl=0
and it was possible to embed it on a website.

When I try it again with an other Picture the link looks like:
https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/abcde9fghi7j7kl177m1n/NameOfNewPicture.jpg?dl=0&rlkey=abc5defghijklmn...

This method does not work anymore.

Any Solutions?

Hi @druck0162, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

In general, we don't recommend changing the URL for shared links directly to have them embedded on a site.

 

Could you try forcing the file to render by using this method?

 

Keep me updated with any progress!

Hi Jay,

 

even in this method the structure of the link is different.

 

As I said for this methods the link has to look like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/a1b2c3d4ef5gh6/beispiel.docx?dl=1

 

but it looks like:
https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/a1b2c3d4ef5gh6/beispiel.docx?dl=0&rlkey=abc5defghijklmn

You change the dl=0 to raw=1, like the thread suggested, since it looks like the change has be mad eon the location of the dl=0.
