    That's exactly what I did, the reason it works in this case is that the image will show whether the link is h-t-t-p or h-t-t-p-s.

    Lets try this as another example, I know the h-t-t-p link works, but I don't think the h-t-t-p-s link will.

    Try clicking on the links that Pollowick posted, they don't work as they're h-t-t-p-s.

    Exactly!!! I posted an h-t-t-p link but it converted it to h-t-t-p-s - this is exactly my issue

    All you do is highlight a work. Cut webpage address. Click the paper clip icon. Insert link... As long as address is correct it works.. I'm not sure why the address is changing to https

    Nope that doesn't work either, converted it to h-t-t-p-s again and doesn't show the photo as I want (using the picture icon).

    Your doing something wrong.. You need to create a word that links.. So you say click here...or go see by clicking on this word... You highlight the word using mouse or finger.. Then the paper clip. Insert link.. If you don't highlight a word before clicking paper clip it won't work.. He is screwfix home page.. Click on this sentence

    I get all that and its what I'm doing, but it doesn't work if the image is h-t-t-p. Show me how you use the square gallery icon to show that Manchester evening image I link to above (which is h-t-t-p only.)

    I normally use flickr which is https so that works fine.

    Yes like that, it works fine if you then change the URL from h-t-t-p-s to h-t-t-p. That is what I'm saying, the URL you linked to was changed by this site from h-t-t-p to h-t-t-p-s.
