    To use Google Drive I've always had to: copy the link from Google Drive, use the normal IMG and /IMG tags around the link, BUT within the link, edit the word "open" to "uc".

    Yes indeed.

    Thanks I appreciate it. I still used Google Photos. That is where all my photos back up too anyway. So I'm glad I figured that out..

    I opened the photo and right clicked it and opened up in a new tab and used that link to copy and paste.

    I use imgur, too. Once you get the hang of it, links are very easy to post.

    No.

    If I grab the link and open it in a new window, Google asks me to sign into my account. I'm at work, so I'm not signed in on this machine.

    I also accessed the forum on my mobile phone (which has a Google account), and I get the black and white Do Not Enter symbol.

    Google photo access has always tripped up people - not sure why, but Google seems to want to control access to the content even if set for public...
