Inline images can be hosted by a third-party site like Tumblr or Flickr.

You can Test your URL to ensure that your image will post. Add your URL and click the arrow link to the right. If you find an error in the “type” field, your image URL will not post properly, and you’ll want to make sure you have the correct link.

Using links from Tumblr?

If you are using photo links from Tumblr, right-click on your image, click "Copy Image Address," and insert that URL into the link field of your post.

Using links from Flickr?

If you’re finding the message “Invalid Media” you can grab your URL and Test your link. Scroll down to where you find “URL” and copy the longer URL. Add this to the link field of your post.


Sharing images from Instagram? Make sure your account is not marked as private. Images on private accounts aren’t shareable in posts as they are meant only for your approved Instagram followers.
