Inserting an image

I need to insert an image to see if the host is putting watermarks on all of them. I have these options for what to copy for the link from Photobucket:

Direct link
HTML code
IMG link

Which one do I want? Thanks.

1. I think it's the direct link, though I could be wrong.

I haven't used Photobucket in a long time, since they went nuts raising their prices.

I use, and like, SmugMug. https://peggycarter.smugmug.com/

Reasonable prices and no watermark like the one on Photobucket!

2. I have smugmug...

But my pictures from 2008 on are unfortunately on Photobucket. I went to Smugmug (I'm the one with the eagle picture in that other post, BTW) (the one with the watermark!) when Photobucket wanted $500. They are down to $8 a month now, but that eagle picture had a giant watermark on it--my first one I have tried since going back to Photobucket. Let me try the direct link here to see if there's a watermark still. If so, buh bye Photobucket! Do you see a watermark on this???

3. Direct link is what you want

Paste it straight into your post at the point where you want the image to show up. You can then hit "Preview" to make sure it appears correctly.

You don't need to use the link tags when posting btw -- just paste the direct link as is.
