You cannot use the share buttons on AR - they don't work. You have to cut & paste the link & then the photos switch over.  It's not you - it's AR.

I haven't tried this with ActiveRain, but we do this all the time with our company blog when we try to share it to Facebook.  You take the URL of the blog, paste it in the Facebook debugging page, and then scrape it a couple of times. You then can share the page and the photo shows fine. This has always worked for us. https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

Generally works properly if you paste the url directly into your fb status rather than using the share buttons from AR

I agree with the other comments that you have to post the picture yourself because the link for your post to FB does not work for pictures yet.

Lyn Sims has the solution.  I upload the photo to FB and Tiny URL link from AR.  It's a pain but it works.  Good luck & stay safe in Florida.
