Can photos from Google Photo show on this forum?  If so, does anyone have instructions on how to do it?

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

This is how I've made it work... I use Google Chrome.

 

1) Go to your Google Photo album.

2) Click on the picture you want to insert. It will show with a white background.

3) Click on the picture again. This time it will show with a black background.

4) Right click on the picture and select "Copy image address"

5) Paste that very long URL into some place where you can edit the very long URL text. The example below had an URL that was 730 characters long. It began with "https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/BOK" and ended with "=w211-h158-no".

6) Append "?.jpg" onto the end of the very long URL. So, the example below now ends with "=w211-h158-no?.jpg".

7) Copy that new URL

8) Paste the URL into the reply window by right-clicking and selecting "Paste as plain text".

9) You should see the URL momentarily and then the picture should magically appear.

Alternately, at step 8, you could

8) Click on the "Insert other media" link in the lower right of the reply window

9) Select "Insert image from URL"

10) Paste that very long URL into the text box

11) Click "Insert into post"

To be sure, steps 8 and beyond are the normal way you would insert any image URL into this post...

 

I'd be thrilled for somebody to describe an easier way. It's supposed to also work with the "Share" icon, but I've never gotten that method to work consistently...

Thanks for the detailed instructions dnl42!  Worked perfectly!

 

 

You might have a sharing problem. Did you tell Google it was OK to share the photo?
