    I don't believe you can link directly to a file, at least not currently. Instead, people would have to go to http://public.me.com/username and download the file from there.

    Edit: If you are trying to host the image to display on some website, I don't think that is possible. Maybe instead you can upload it to some site on web.me.com/username, and link it from there.

    The .Mac one works great, no equivalent me.com one AFAIK. Anybody care to correct me?

    umm,

    the old url format works fine still (http://idisk.mac......blah, blah), so I'm not sure what the issue is?

    When I try to use an .me url it just chages it to a .me one anyway.

    As far as we know, there are absolutely no plans to cut off anything that uses the www.mac.com domain.

    Apple knows people are reliant on it for their site/e-mail/gallery/iDisk/whatever so it's being kept on.

    Apple hasn't really got a better use for the site.

    http://public.me.com/username probably isn't hosting images because it's just a redirect to the old iDisk page (on mac.com).

    So that is why it wont work for you.

    When (or if) Apple makes public.me.com/username an actual valid part of the service instead of a redirect to mac.com, then your issue should go away.

    www.xs.to

    I used to use that site back in the day for hosting images on my Xanga, when that sort of thing was popular. It worked pretty good.

    Why is iDisk so slow?

    as of 4-2010...

    ...the old URL construct still functions for absolute link to files in the iDisk hierarchy. This presumes said files are in the "Sites" folder of that hierarchy. I have not tested other folders.

    The construct is:

    hxxp://homepage.mac.com/username/folder/file.filetype

    substituting "tt" for "xx" of course.
