A test to see if I can link photos from my Google cloud like I do from photobucket.

So far can't get it to work like Photobucket where you can just paste the link in your post and the pic displays.  The photo is clickable if you "share" it in Google photos.  I'll mess with it some more.

This is the procedure to post a photo from your google photos:

1. Open up the image you want to post in Google Photos
2. Right Click on the image and choose "Copy image address"
3. Past the image address into your post on the 2A page
4. At the end of the image address you will see a "-no" (without the quotes)
5. change "-no" to "-tmp.jpg"
6. Put the IMG codes at the beginning and end of the image address.

... This is an example:


CJ2A #29110 "General Willys"
MB #204827 "BAM BAM"
MB #295645
MB #434416

Jeff,
I'm trying to do this from the google photos app on my iPad. The URL that I get is the one in my first post here.
I can't find any other URL, nothing that that ends in -no.

Can't make it work, but that's ok. 
I was hoping for an easy way to post my photos that are automatically backed up to the google cloud, but google has made it such a pain that I will just keep sending them to photobucket and posting that way.

Thanks for messing with it for me.
