    Why not upload the file here? It's a better option than external linking.

    And, I have no idea why is not showing.

    Does it work if you try to insert it into a post? It appears as normal in the editor mode but after submission it turns into that icon with a cross. It's the second or third time I've noticed it and I think it happens with images hosted on Imgur.

    Here's a random picture uploaded by someone else to Imgur as a test:


    Edit: okay, that worked; here's mine again:

    It may be that Imgur don't allow hotlinking (i.e. directly linking to an image on their server) - you can use the "upload a file" button to upload to the site directly though :).
