    Why can't I figure out how to host a photo in my iDisk? I want to post a thumbnail of a picture as a link, but I can't seem to link to where the photo is saved in my iDisk. Is this possible? I must be doing something wrong. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you keeping the photo in a publicly-accessible part of your iDisk? I haven't tried to do what you're talking about before (bit of a .Mac n00b :eek: ) but I can't see why it wouldn't be possible. :)

    If you store it in your Photos directory, the link to it is: homepage.mac.com/your_user_name/.Photos/photo.jpg

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I've tried saving to both my Pictures (yes it's called Pictures, no "Photo" folder?) and public folder, but I can't seem to link either. the rest of my website is accessible via web.mac.com....I never set up an actual homepage, just created the entire thing in iWeb. I'll try some other things. Any other ideas? Thanks.
