    If I go get a shareable link from my Google Photos ....
    [​IMG]

    This share yields this when placed in image => [​IMG]

    But if I get the "copy image URL" via right mouse I get this =>
    [​IMG]

    I must be stupid, whats the point of shareable link? I did jack up my photo account? I can "share" folders fine.:baldy

    Right click the photo and use copy image location.

    Can someone please post detailed directions on how to post Google images? I've tried and come up with zip!

    I seem to be having trouble, too.

    I've always used the right click and copy image location, but that stopped working sometime recently. I've tried to check for some privacy setting but I can't see anything.

    I see the picture, do you?

    Yes your photo is there.


    This is not a quote from your photo but a high light and copy.

    I don't get it. I posted some pics from the same album into the flea market and people are telling me they're not showing up.

    I can still see your hotdog pic but the ones in your i-pad ad don't show. No clue about Google pix. :dunno

    i am about sick of this. don't know what happened with google and the new website software but they don't work. it's freaking ridiculous that the most used photo site in the world has issue with working on the "new" website. used to work just fine. now the photos show up for a bit but then disappear. i have to use both the "shareable link" and the right click "copy image address" in a post. the sharable link usually works if they click on it, but does not show a "live" pic in the post. the right click and "image address" paste only seems to work for a bit, then goes to a broken icon. i can see them so long as i am logged into my google account, but as soon as i sign out, no more pics.

    what are we doing wrong? i just can't imagine that the people responsible for this amazing site aren't aware and don't have a solution. i asked once about this before in a PM to a mod and was told i was basically doing it wrong. sorry, but i have been posting images on this site for years, i can even do basic html, but nothing i try seems to work.

    hoping, begging, for an answer.

    thanks,

    Yep. I see quite a few photos in the FM 1 day that can be gone the next. There was problems with Imgur too. Turns out the Imgur problem was with them. We have not changed anything here, so I am betting that it is something with google.

    Your photos that work are posted as JPEG Image, the ones that don't show are PNG Image.

    Your first link went to the page of photos, not just one photo.

    so how do i make sure it's a jpeg. the reason there are several pics when you click on the link is so i don thave to post all of the photos of every item. if they are interested then they can click on the link and view more detailed pics.

    i will go back and see wha ti can do to fix the jpeg issue.

    thanks,

    The photos that I posted were done with a right click "copy image location".

    NO, I can't... and it's driving me crazy... has somebody figured this out?

    There is no longer a way to right click and copy image link in Google Photos (I used to do it in Picassa, even after they told me Picassa was going to die). How on earth can Google mess up this bad?
