"need to remove all that garbage after the file name"

The Photobucket provided URL is:

https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/ee209/ddemonte/0/6811a915-65e7-4eb3-b7bd-2eb05049dcd7-original.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds

The "garbage" is server side parameters that tell Photobucket how to render the source file and in some cases may be needed for the server to do it's job. Your browser doesn't give a rat's a$$ about the parameters and will use them in the HTTP request for image data just fine. Here is the image retrieved using the full URL and an HTML IMG tag. The problems arise when brain dead forum software decides to muck with the URL rather than do the right thing and pass/use it exactly as provided. I'd post the full HTML tag for embedding the image but this stupid forum software is also mucking with the meta tags used to display HTML source in a web page. That used to work and now doesn't - grrrrr!!!
