Just because it came up in the shoutbox: I take the liberty to post about how I embed links from Instagram. This is one
way (I assume there are smarter and faster ways of doing it, but this is how I do it) of embedding images from Instagram from your web browser (in case of Firefox - I suppose the names and steps may differ for Windows Explorer or Chrome... though I would have to check...):
First of all, sorry for not having this available in English, but I don't want to reset my entire browser just so that it pops up in not-German. Suffice to say that it should be the same kind of slot. The steps stay basically the same.
Now, to the steps:
1) Direct to the site containing the image, I have now chosen a comic strip by one of my fave artists Rachel J. Pierce as an example. That means you don't want to stay in the feed where all images are shown continuously, but so that the particular image or imageset pops up. It should look like this:
2) Now, in a next step, you right-click on the image. Again, sorry for the non-English.
3) Go down to "Seiteninformationen anzeigen" which should translate to something along the lines of "view image info." Like here:
4) That will make this window here pop up.
5) Direct to the tab reading "Media" to go to that tab.
6) This will give you a list of all embedded images or media on the site (hence also works if you want to get a video, even though it will play in endless loop if you post it here because it's different from youtube videos) in the first white box.
7) Navigate down in the white box by hittng the down-arrow until you find the image you were looking for (sometimes you have to click quite a bit because there are all the logos and avatars of other users as well). As you can see, this one has a .png or .jpg ending, which means it's the URL leading directly to the image rather than the site the image is on.
8) Right-click on the link in the white box and select "copy."
9) And if you now paste what you copied into the browser and hit "enter," it will take you to the direct image.
10) Follow the steps above by Quinn and Mikki to embed the image on JBO.
You have a Tesseract!
By the way, this also works for Twitter images, though you have to wade through many image links before you get the definite one at times, but you can get there. As I said, this is likely more complicated than it ought to be and I am just too dumb to do it faster, but this is one way of getting it.
