Proper links to images in Dropbox

(This probably doesn’t work anymore.)

Dropbox will create a link to an image that looks like https://www.dropbox.com/s/8dlmxjlf3jkd5zd/DSC09789.jpg?dl=0. When I follow it, I get a page with the image in it, but not just the image itself. The link can’t be used to place an image in an HTML page.

To make such a link, change https://www.dropbox.com to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com.
