Google Photo Image Test

Testing photos.google website to try embedding an image into post

I can see the photo above... for now, but I am not sure if the image will stay there.

Re: Google Photo Image Test

Mike... JFTR, its showing up just fine. I've used GP for well over a year maybe even two years. I would definitely like to know how you did it so when you get a chance... spill the beans. Currently I'm trying out IMGUR which works pretty good... but I have to figure out how to categorize images.-Mike

Re: Google Photo Image Test

Hello Kevin,
Thanks for acknowledging you were able to view the photo within my original post. I am now going to perform a browser cleanup now to see if that removes the photo from my post.

Hello Mike (57Vet),
Once I complete a full test of google photos (and everything still works), I will post the procedures on how I used google photos to embed an image into a post.

Re: Google Photo Image Test

I logged out of google photos, and did a complete browser cleanup... and it looks like the embedded image within my original post is still there! So far... so good!!!

I used Fire Fox and Windows 7 while completing the procedures shown below. I also resized my photo to 800 x 600 in photoshop before copying the image into google photos (I am going to try a copying a Hi Res photo into google photos using the "High Quality - Unlimited Photo" setting within google photos for my next test).

1 - Open the photo in google photos, and right click on the photo. A menu will pop up, and select "Copy Image Location".


2 - Go to your TC post, and click on the "Mountain and Sun" Icon. When the menu comes up to enter your URL address, right click on the highlighted "http://" and click on "Paste" from the pop up menu.


3 - After pasting the URL address, click on the "OK" button... and your photo should now appear within the post.

Note: If you are using IE as a browser, the above instructions do not work. You get a different pop up menu in step #1.

Hope this helps!

Re: Google Photo Image Test

Same procedures as shown above, but this time I copied a Hi Res photo (2048 x 1536) into google photos using the "High Quality - Unlimited Photo" setting within google photos. I did not resize the Hi Res photo before copying.


So far, I can still see the image shown above.... but it looks like the image extended beyond the post's text box boundaries when I viewed this post on "Preview Post".

Edit: After I selected "Submit Post", the image did not extended beyond the post's text box boundaries... so it appears that I do not need to resize/down size Hi Res images as long as they are uploaded to google photos using the "High Quality - Unlimited Images" setting.

Re: Google Photo Image Test

Google Photo is much nicer to work with then trying to get Google Docs to allow sharing public content. But very nice detailed instructions. Thank you Mike.

Also be aware that there is a cost to some mobile users with limited or even bandwidth throttled unlimited data plans, as larger images will eat up data downloading. And may be resized down by the device anyways once they arrive. Larger isn't always better.

Works for me too... when I follow all of the directions. Thanks for the heads up Mike.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

Re: Google Photo Image Test

You can also manually insert image tags around the URL for those folks who code on the run and don't use the toolbar.
