    What is wrong with the following link?  I am asking because my form would not keep the image in place.  In other words, after some time, the image would disappear from my web page--where I put the form (the form is called Skull Lights)

    I was originally linking to the image, at the link below, but then, like I said, after a short while, the image would disappear.  So now, I just uploaded the image; but I'd still like to know why the link didn't work---so that I know for the future not to use the "URL" option for images.

    NOTE: NEITHER OF THESE LINKS WORK ANYMORE--I DELETED THE PIC FROM MY SITE BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T WORKING WITH JOTFORM.  NEVERTHELESS, CAN YOU TELL FROM THE LINK ITSELF WHY IT DIDN'T WORK?  IS IT TOO LONG?  IS IT THE "https"  Or?

    BTW, I also tried a shortended version of the link; but still, after a short whilte, the image would disappear. 

    You can see the uploaded, working version on my site.  (I'm using the 'upload' option.)

    It is because the image link is not the direct link, Jotform only allows direct image links. You should use image URL's that ends with the file name, i.e http://website.com/upload/hallowen.gif 

    Hope this answer your question.

    Thanks :)
