The problem with the Google photo is that, although the URL appeared to point to a .JPG file, it really was an actively-served "page" (with active shink/expand buttons, etc).
And the forum IMG tag (what the 'postcard' icon inserts) can't deal with that.
(the "link" icon does (URL markup), but it doesn't present the actual image in-line in your posting)

What i do varies depending upon circumstance ... i usually take the photo and then resize it on my PC before posting it as a "paperclip" icon attachment (illustrated instructions here and here ). The advantage of such an 'attachment' is that the forum doesn't lose the picture if your remote (like a Google picture) account goes away.

My (up til last week when it croaked) old Samsung Galaxy Note II phone offered to resize images when i emailed them to myself (easiest way to move one or two images to the PC). My new (Oreo 8.1 on an LG Stylo 4) phone doesn't offer that, so i've installed the Photo Resizer app from Play, which makes it simple.

Another disadvantage of simply linking to a remote (non-attached) photo is that it can be HUGE ... which pushes the forum buttons way off the screen (and may make it fundamentally useless for conveying whatever you're trying to show). In thread-critical cases, i'll frequently grab the photo, resize it, and re-post it to the same thread in a more "reader friendly" size (900 pixels wide ... or less).

Just making sure I still knew how to do this!

Picture is from my drive up the Alaska Highway near the YT/AK border earlier this month.
