I replied to your other thread here in Q&S, but as for this question...your pic needs to have a URL if you're wanting to link to a picture in a post or your signature. You can host the picture somewhere like www.picturetrail.com (this is what I use) or another free hosting site of your choice. Then you can get the URL off the picture once you've uploaded it. Feel free to PM me if you need help.

I had the same question and I am posting to see if I have been successful.

It worked but I was concerned that anyone could edit my photoalbum if I gave a direct link into it. Does anyone know? I am using Shutterfly. I opened User CP - Edit signature and after postioning the cursor in my signature clicked on the globe w/ chain ( hyperlink). In another window I opened up my shutterfly account to the page I wanted, copied the URL and then clicked back to Mothering.com window w/my signature page and pasted it then saved.

frannyfresh ~ I don't believe by directly linking to your Shutterfly page that anyone can tamper w/your pictures (although you may want to right-click protect it so nobody can take your pictures). I'm looking at a friend's Shutterfly album right now and I can't do anything but look at the whole album or the slideshow. There is a spot where you can check if you want to order a print, but I believe that can be disabled too.

BTW, I don't see a link in your sig, but from what you wrote, it sounds like you did it correctly. In Shutterfly, make sure you are copying the link that you would share w/your friends and not the link that is in your address bar at the top of your screen. It will end with .jpg or something like that.

HTH
