    I haven't posted pics on this forum in a while, and I can't seem to post photos from links generated by Google Photos, Google Drive, Dropbox or Facebook. What are people using to post pics? I have tried searching the forum for help, or for a FAQ or something to find some pointers, but I can't find any recent topics, and the "Help" button below does not mention anything about photos. Any help would be appreciated.

    There's easier ways but I use google drive because its reliable and they're not going to pull your photos the way photobucket screwed us. Once you memorize it it goes faster.

    PHOTOS ONLINE WITH GOOGLE DRIVE

    - First size your image to a max of 800 pixle width

    go to: https://drive.google.com.

    -hit "new" button to create and name a folder for the images you want to post

    - put any photos you want to post online in that folder, be sure to paste that link and name of the folder in your PC so you can find it again (or you’ll be sorry because google can make it hard to find). Always start by cutting and pasting that link to open up google drive to your folder.

    - select a photo in google drive, right click on it and choose "get sharable link"

    - in the next pop up choose “sharing settings” at the bottom of the pop up.

    - in the next pop up copy the long link that ends in "sharing" (also click on "advanced settings and make sure your link preference is set to "public" or “anyone”.

    then open another browser window and go to:

    http://gdurl.com/ (hint - open both browser windows before you start so cutting/pasting is easier).

    paste in your link and choose "permalink".

    -choose "standard URL"

    - copy the "standard URL pemalink" and paste it into the forum post (click image icon in AccessNorton header to paste the image)

    You can paste the Google drive "sharing" link into http://gdurl.com/ at a later time and it will generate the same permalink for you.

    Sometimes its trick maneuvering through the folders in google drive but if you keep clicking on the next folder you'll get there. When you get to the last folder where all your folders are available - save that link for reference. Keep the folder links handy so you can go to them directly and not waste time looking for them.

    You can also right-click an image on many webpages, select "Copy Image URL" from the pop up menu list, and then in your Reply message clunk the image icon sitting in the tools bar above where your typing goes. It's the little landscape style rectangle next to the happy face icon. This brings up a URL box which you can paste in your previously copied image URL. Hit enter/return and your image should appear in the text entry area right where your cursor was.

    This method is dependant on the original image location remaining available into the future...but it does not take up space on AN servers and so is free for all.
