[resolved] Still having issues with images not visible on webpage...

I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get the background image to display on the webpage. Then some how I got lucking and found a URL that worked... though it didn't work if it was shortened using goo.gl. HOWEVER, now I'm running into the same issues with the "Neighborhood-Guide" images....

Now I've read in previous post that I have to right click on the image and select 'Copy image location', but that is not an option for me when I right click. I have 'Copy image URL' and sometimes 'Copy image address' is a second option.

I feel like this is something that is super simple, and there is just something I'm not doing correctly (obviously) or there might be something wrong with the website's functionality OR there is some privacy issues with the images that I'm trying to use through images.google.com.

You're help is appreciated :)

Hi Abigail,

If "Copy image URL" is what you are seeing then you are in the right place. Some web sites can mess with those URLs so they don't work properly. If you have an example of one that you want that isn't working, post it here and we'll see if we can get it to cooperate.

Thank you for the clarification. I was able to find some other pictures that worked fine! In fact, I just selected 'View page source' and copied the URLs from the website's code.
