Post a photo.

Recommended Posts

I am getting very frustrated with this , I am not very good with computers but I have been able to figure out how to post pictures on other slot car forum sites . I use Google photos on my phone isn't that a photo hosting site? Why do these computer programmers make things so complicated when it could be so much easier! I bet there are a lot of people who are in the same boat as me and just give up on the site because of this.

pS. What's a URL?

Uniform Resource Locator (URL)

In your case the address of the photo

eg: https://myphotohosting.site.au/photo1.jpg

Thanks David for your help, but I can't find anything like that in Google Photos, I'm buggered if I know! On the other sites I just press the icon it takes me to the disired place and I upload or download not sure witch, the pictures or take a picture and job done. Looks like I'll have to wait until someone I know can show me what to do! LOL.

I went into Google Photos - clicked on the photo so it opened and then right clicked on the photo and chose copy image address.

Hopefully the image loads 

cheers

David

Edit: Google Photos don't seem to last

So either Google pics invalidates image address linking somehow, or what you copied wasn't the image address ... 

Try doing the same again, but pasting it into a new browser tab, just to see what you get

Ok I see a photo of the car on my screen so that is interesting....

when I paste the url into a new tab I also get the photo. I then copied the text from your post above and pasted it into my browser tab and the photo loaded as well....

must be a google photo thing.....because I am logged in.

I use the Share - create a link option in Google Photo - can you open the link below? I can't seem to paste it into the Insert Image from URL window.

I don't think google photo wants us to post images on forums.

Can you see a yellow Dino below? I pasted that photo from my Facebook photo library

Right click image, right click "copy image address" then paste it into your post.

So I assume that means you can see the Dino - but no one can see the Cobra?

This is a photo I shared to a Facebook group. The Dino was in my album. Testing to see if I can share a photo I posted to a group as well.

Hopefully you can see two cars??

Don't post URL, Right click on the photo you want from any of the images, select "copy image address" then paste it into your post

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRErtiT16-epEEs890P46c

If you want a larger version of that photo, click on it so it opens in a separate screen, then right click "copy image address" then just paste it in your post.
