    I have used Picasa, Google+ and now Google Photos for a very long time. There are loads of features I love about these services (especially the $$$), but I continue to be frustrated that the method to share a single picture and post it via ADV changes roughly every 6-12 months. With this last change by Google, I can no longer find a way to share a picture on ADV other than downloading and uploading as an attachment. I have tried both the "share" and copy url options with no success. Anybody got this figured out? BTW, examples below:

    Shareable Link

    Copy image URL (BTW, this picture shows, but only to me)

    Thanks, I will try that method again. I am fairly certain that the last time I did it for a tag photo it was not visible other than to me.

    The latest update from using this method is that the pictures showed the first day, but not the second. What the heck is happening with Google Photos sharing and how can I consistently have it work on ADV?

    I use Picasa web albums, view the photo full size, then right click on it to get the URL, works every time. FWIW the size can then be changed within the URL when you insert it to your post, like to 1024 for example.

    I think I finally figured it out! Clicking share and creating a link does not work....HOWEVER, after I do this simply copying the photo URL seems to remain stable. It is the combination of creating a shareable link and then simply using the image URL that seems to work consistently. I'll let you know if this finally pans out.

    If you use Firefox, just Copy Image Location and paste here in the image icon.
