I am about to ditch FlickR because Photos on my iMac cannot connect to my FlickR account. It is pain in the back side to move images to desktop and then upload them to FlickR. It reduces my efficiency.

I have created a Google Photos account as you suggested and uploaded all my images from my iPhone using Google's App to my account. I think Google Photos is great in its own right. For example, all my coral pictures were put in an album called Reef. All my FTS photos are in an album called Aquarium.

I have tried to embed a test image on RC like you did above using my iMac. But failed to do so. Would you mind guiding me on how to do this please?

I followed the two steps shown in the pictures below, but sadly the link I get is not the right one. First, I selected an image and then click the share icon as shown below:

Thanks in advance.

Sure DiscusHeckel. First go to the google photo album you want to share:



Click on the photo you want to share to enlarge it:




Right click on the photo, and this menu appears. Scroll down to "copy image address" and left click




And then go to Reefcentral forum thread, open a new reply post, and paste the copied link into the image url box as shown:



[IMPORTANT ADDENDUM]

Let's make sure that we have sharing turned ON:
Go to the album whose photos you want to share as below,

I also use the postimage site to post from my mobile. When posting from my mobile, the image gets copied to my mobile clipboard and then I just paste it into the thread from there. Easy, Peasy

So you copy the image and past it?
Not the URL?
Interesting. Hadn't thought of trying that.

Just tried.. no option to paste once here. From google photos..
I'll try it on a couple other sites
I'm just wondering about postimage.. if it'll still be around in a year or two.. and still free, or reasonably priced.

What type of phone? How do you copy to a clipboard?
My iPhone doesn't have an option to copy to a clipboard.. that I know off.

Hi DiscusHeckel,
