Dropbox direct link no work

Trying to direct like dropbox pics and FTE says no go.


Test 1 direct link
No go, get this error when pasting the shared link into the pop up box
"Upload Error: Invalid url." Here is the URL
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qgvur4d8az...2013.24.01.jpg

Test two is the long way.....
Have to take pic on phone, then download to computer, then drag and drop to get them to post.

Test three, using the [img] before the URL and [/img] to see if the IMG tags work with dropbox

So i figured it out, Dropbox creates a shared link address that cannot be used on FTE. I have to open dropbox, open pic, right click "copy image address" and post that one and it works.
That address is completely different than the shared link dropbox provides.
