Let's see if it works for me using the postcard:

You did not appear to use the postcard icon.

*Both* your first and second links had the "url" markup.

[url] https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Exploration-vehicles/Sprinter-4wd/i-wPnZV6W/0/X3/2016-11-19%2014.40.51-X3.jpg [/url]


The fact that the "url" is lowercase looks like you manually typed it. (the icons insert uppercase)

But the real problem/fix is that the postcard uses "IMG", not "URL"

[IMG] https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Exploration-vehicles/Sprinter-4wd/i-wPnZV6W/0/X3/2016-11-19%2014.40.51-X3.jpg [/IMG]


IMG links to an externally-posted image ... so if the target is NOT a .jpg, .gif or similar, it won't show it.

p.s. i added spaces in the above example for clarity. The UUPERCASEing is not required, "img" works too.

DB did not work.
Let's try manually adding the IMG tags

Nope.

Voila! Posting a jpg from dropbox can be done, same way as Smugmug.
DO NOT USE THE SHARING FUNCTION FROM EITHER SITE.
Instead right click and copy the image, then use the postcard and paste the image address.

Other forums do it more simply IMHO and also allow BBC code which let's you control the size of the shared image.
But, at least I've learned how to post images.

Now, for extra credit, let's see if it's possible to share a pdf file from DB

That didn't work.

Here's a link created by DB

https://www.dropbox.com/s/y7t9no0rhz...0Vans.pdf?dl=0

Now pasted into the postcard
