DeviantART DOESN'T ALLOW HOTLINKING!!!!!! NEITHER DOES BLOGGER!
OK, I'm going to say this ONE MORE TIME:
Even if you have a deviantart account, you still need to host your pictures somewhere else to post them here, or attach them directly. Deviantart has code on their site that blocks remote linking (hotlinking) of images. You will see your images fine, because they are already in your cashe, but everyone else will get a red X, a blue ?, or nothing at all, and your thread will just fill up with posts saying "I can't see it."

I'm not sure I know what "hotlinking" is... I posted some links to photobucket, because the pics I uploaded to my site here keep dissappearing to show the rooster logo instead. Was that a "forbidden" act?
If so, sorry about it. I thought saving bandwith is kind of a good thing...
Hotlinking is when you post a link on one site to a picture that is hosted on another site.
Some sites allow this (such as photobucket) while others do not (such as deviantart).
The rooster logo shows up because some new technology is being implemented at conceptart.org right now and there are still some bugs to be worked out.
Hosting your pictures at photobucket is perfectly fine.
Here's some more info about image hosting:
Have you tried this?
--go to the link and right click on the image, there is the jpg-link you can copy and paste it then at ca...
It opens as a forbidden link - for one.
Also, its much easier just to host it on photobucket or imageshack and save us clicking a link to see each picture anyway.
koroshiya001--forbidden link?That explains why I get no more replies in my sketchbook.
Thanks for the input.
I've noticed people starting to try to link from their Blogger.com pages.
Sorry folks, same deal.
Free site that does allow hot linking. Easy to build and manage. I hav 2 just to put misc. stuff on.
what about www.imageshack.us? Is that ok?
Since CA now allows all registered users to attach files, there's really no need for remote hosting.
What if i need to show my pics on other sites? does CA allow hotlinking to other forums?
I host my own files anyways, but im sure there are others who would like to know.
Thanks I think whit the attach works
really? is that why everytime i post something from dA, it always ends up an x? damn them!
Am I allowed to link to an image I have posted on my website?
Yes, as long as it works.
