    "Get link" in Google Photos doesn't work for me, but try this:

    1. In Google Photos, view the individual photo
    2. Right-click on the photo and select "Copy Image Address" (in Chrome — or the equivalent if using a different browser)
    3. When posting, click on Insert Image button and paste the address (which is very long, like 200 characters)
    4. The address doesn't have a filetype (like .jpg) and some forums won't accept it, but MA doesn't seem to care. If the forum requires an image filetype, try appending ?.jpg or -tmp.jpg to the address.

    Doggy! I first saw the first picture and I thought what a bad owner! Why is that dog not sleeping in the bed? But then I see the dog does get to sleep in the bed. The whole bed! What kind of dog is that?

    Sorry for the highjack

    So you see it and it works! The link from Google Photos "Get link" probably doesn't work because it creates a goo.gl shortened url (for good reason), and the forum can't handle the indirection.

    The pictures are of Dizzy, our previous greyhound (we are now on our second). More pics here.

    It's easy to post from photo bucket. You just need the IMG link to copy and paste.

    I use photobucket too. It's a simple solution for this simple guy.

    Found this one for you Dave. :)
