Can you see the image below, this site recommends adding ?.jpg to the end of the address code

https://sites.google.com/site/picasares ... o-an-image

So the image address was (I left a gap between https:// and lh3. to allow the forum to post the address code in full to prevent it turning it into a link)

That's strange, the images are showing on my laptop and my wife's galaxy tab :think:

I've turned on the sharing tab, so have the images appeared now? If yes I'll post a demo on how to do this

You should be able to see the image now. Looks like the images could only be seen in a google browser, and now I can view these in internet explorer.

If you can see the image now (see last two posts), I'll post on how to link these photos up to the forum soon

How to upload google photos

1. Click on your selected photo

2. Click on the funny arrow < with the dots on all three points (top right hand above the cursor in next photo)

Image

3. Click on get link

Image

4. Click on copy

Image

5. Open up another window in your browser and Go to https://ctrlq.org/google/photos/

6. Paste your link into the box and click on generate code

Image

7. When generated, the page will automatically scroll down to the bottom, just copy the direct link (URL) code and use the code as you would normally do to post a picture

Image


You need to disregards my earlier posts about adding the ?.jpg extension. Do not add the jpg extension
Make sure you click on the Img tab situated on the reply/post box's on this forum.


8. Kiss goodbye to photobucket :D

I'm very pleased, I've just uploaded a load of images on my Star Wars helmet thread in record breaking time, all the photos kept in order unlike photo bucket where they seem to upload out of order and you seem to have to keep clicking the back and forth to post the photos in order.

Took a little while to get used to, but very quick to use, If I uploaded these with photobucket, I would still be trying to post the photos for the next few hours.

Looking at your original URL address, looks like you did everything correct, even to the point of generating the URL and copying it.

The only two things that didn't make it work for you was

1. You need to disregards my earlier posts about adding the ?.jpg extension. There is not need to add the jpg extension
2. Make sure you click on the Img tab situated on the reply/post box's on this forum.



Below is what your URL code should look like for posting on the forum, I put some extra space's in to allow the forum to post the code for you to see including the [img ]'s (the img's are generated when you click on the Img tabs on this forum for your to post your pics) You should post the below without any spaces

[img ] https:// lh3.googleusercontent.com/8Z7IdN5YRVTd-FJL6XFJNnw4THreM2iynv49pPrIuVpzLtFkfkOa1MDLBe-3CKumPtDBS7S7fXxdVaDuDOPNUDmdNHWqtwxmEJQA5yOyJzpgdHm4mGAxI2PGx83YCgUxTjsy [ /img]


You wasn't far off

I hope that this post makes thing clearer.
