    I have several other hosting sites that I use, but the steps to post photos are all about the same.

    Can you tell me those steps for Google Photos TrashCan? I've been able to do it with other sites by pasting the link into the URL box; I have had no luck with Google Photos.

    I am using one of two laptops. One running Windows 7 Enterprise, the other running Windows 10. I have to use IE on my Win7 laptop, but I can use whatever browser on my Win10 laptop.

    Well, Firefox works best, so I'll start there. You can use IE, it'll be a little different.

    Right click on your bike photo that I posted.

    You should have an ( copy image or copy image location) choice.
    If you use copy image, just paste it in the reply.
    I always use the copy image location and paste in the mountain square box.

    I cant see it... make sure the album is public. You might be able to see it because you're still logged in to google photos. Try logging out of your google account and refresh this page.

    Dang, I can't see it now that I'm logged out. I have the album marked "shared".

    Did you right click the photo or use the original from your account?

    If you used the original, you have to click it to make it bigger, then right click for the image location.

    I used the original. I'm thinking it has to do with Google Photos permissions. There is no "public" setting, only shared.

    Using the sharable link from Amazon Cloud doesn't seem to work either.

    Just tried the Windows properties link from Amazon Cloud.

    Links don't work.


    Your photo that I posted came from your account and is still shows.

    You must use "copy image location".

    Well, I'm trying Internet Exploder at the moment because I'm at work and it's all we have.
