Google photos - how to share them on this board?

Postby Gavin Longrain » April 26th, 2017, 2:01 pm

I now use Google photos to store my images. How can I post those images on this board?

I tried the Img and the URL buttons - neither worked for me.

Help!

I don't use Google for storing photos but you likely have a few options.

One way would be be to download them to your computer that then just add as a attachment to this site.

Another way would be to view the photo full sized on Google. Then right click on the photo and select "view image". After the photo is displayed on your screen without any of the other background, copy the whole URL. Then on this site select the URL icon above the message text box and paste the URL in between the "[url][/url]" coding.
