Adding images hosted on Google Photos

Postby mari » Sun Nov 12, 2023 10:42 am

Some tech help please!

I've always been able to add images to my post by including the image link (hosted on Google Photos) in an [Img] tag. But so far this year it hasn't worked at all.
My images are less than 150kb, I'm not sure what else to do. Any tips?

Okay, figured it out I think. So I'm going to answer my own question but I'll leave it here in case I forget...

On Google Photos, open the picture fully. Then right click and select "Copy image address".

This long address then gets pasted inside the [Img] tags, and the pic should show.
Remember to make it smaller than 150kb.

Aaaaaaaaaaand still a fail.

The above worked fine in the preview, and immediately on submission of the post. But when I came back to the board the next day the images didn't show. HELP!

Mari,
The images have to be less than 50 kb I think. I have to look.
Unfortunately, at this time, I am really swamped with the job that pays the bills.
