The text for the pic is
With the brackets around the IMG. Does any one know how to solve this problem?

I figured it out. My site wasn't published. I'm new at the web site thing.

All right, I published the site and when the link above is pushed is redirects to a picture of the tripod logo instead of a jpeg you would get in you typed the link in, any Ideas of how to solve this?

i get the same thing. it may just be tripod.

It's because Tripod (like most free web hosting) doesn't allow hotlinking.

So, does anyone know af a free web hosting site that will alow hot linking AND not delete my site if I just post pictures?

I did check out that thread. Most of those sites had a section in the terms of agreement about not having a web site of just pictures or it would be deleted. Lycos was the only one who had a photo album option where I could just put up pictures.
Personly I have no interest in web design, I animate.

i wasn't talking about web design...i was referring that you might perhaps pay some bucks a month so you can do with the site what you want...

The problem I had with some of the free web hosting sites is not being able to figure out how to publish a web site or even make one since I have no experience at all with web design. I didn't want to end up paying 4.99 a month and have no idea what I was doing.
Thanks for the help though.
