Am I the only one that uses the built-in image hosting? (myFICO)

If you go to your profile, there's a section ("My Images").  You can upload photos, open the image in a new tab, and copy the link for hosting.  My signature is disabled at the moment, but it definitely works.

I do not see this option on mine.

 

ETA: nevermind I see it now. I assume we still need to use the same coding )<img height="36" width="56" title="blah blah blah" src="https myfico link here"> for each image?

Mine works fine with just the width (i.e., height not needed).  So, each of my card pictures look like the example below.

 

<img src="link" width="54">

 

My width is a bit smaller to fit all of my cards on one line.

I only host my images used on this forum there.

I use it, but only for images that I put in my posts or for siggy images that I can't open in a new tab from their original site and use the URL (I try to use the image in my card's account to do this, if possible). I hope that makes sense! I used to use an image hosting site, but felt that wasn't private enough.

I can't seem to get my pictures to show up. I think I'm a little lost on the part about ".....and copy link for hosting". I did open the images on a new tab. Do, I copy the link that's showing on the address bar and paste it on the settings? I'm getting broken images somehow. Thanks for the tip. Hope I can get mine to work.

Copying the link for hosting means, according to my experience, copying the web address and pasting it into the HTML for your signature between the quotation marks.

Example: 

 

<img title="Discover It $4200 23.24%" src="https://card.discover.com/global/images/discover/account/customerservice/cards/IT_CHP_REDDAISY.gif" height="32" width="54">

 

The first set of quotation marks is for the text you want to display when someone hovers their mouse over your picture, the second set of quotation marks is where you put the web address of the picture you want to display. You can copy and paste this into your signature and just change the text and web address for your picture. Just try one and see if you can get it to work. ☺

I think that's what I'm doing but I doesn't seem to show up. Not sure why.
