Crap. I was trying to link to a photo on Google photos but it's not seeming to work. It shows up on my screen but if I look at it on my phone I get the big blank just like everyone else is seeing. Back to the drawing board

This can be done, but itís a convoluted process. I can detail how I managed it if you wish. Google apparently doesnít want to make this easy.

I would appreciate it if you could provide some insight. If google photos is difficult to use, is Flickr any easier? I'm drawing a blank on how to make it work. I see other folks using Flickr but I'm missing something apparently. Thanks for any help you can provide!

First thing to do is click on the "Go Advanced" button. From there, you can click the paper clip icon and upload the photo directly to the boards from your computer or from your phone. Skip all of the various photo sharing sites with their varying degrees of difficulty of linking to photos.

If you insist on using a photo sharing site, you need to figure out a web address that goes directly to the photo, with no html or other wrappers around it. You'll know when you have the right address when the end of the address looks like /photoname.jpg . Going this route, don't use the Insert Link button (it's a globe with a chain link in front of it). Instead, use the Insert Image button (a yellow square with a couple of grey bumps at the bottom - mountains - and a grey dot - the sun or moon - in the upper right)

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7813/...ebfe18_z_d.jpg

flickr..

Get the URL of a Flickr photo
Click on the photo you want to share to open it.
Click the Download icon .
Click View all sizes.
Select the size of photo you want.
Right-click the image. | select Copy image URL.

I have struggled to display images here too, even following the flickr guide above, I manage to acquire the .jpg, but still won't display.

Below is adding the file as mentioned above previous post. Download, then attach to your post. Still won't display, I feel the forum software needs to be updated, or at least software renewed.

The attached file displays just fine for me. You got a bit of snow there!

There is a user setting in the forum to block the display of embedded images. That is so people on slower internet connections don't have to wait a long time for images to download. They can read the forum without images, and choose which images to actually download and view.
