Sorry, I should have been more specific.  It's not super obvious/intuitive.  After you log in, click on the camera icon at the top right of the page, and in the drop-down, select "Settings".  From there, go to "Privacy & Permissions" and then hit the edit button on the right on the "Hiding from public search" section, and once you're in there, make sure that the box next to "Hide your photos from searches on 3rd party sites" is un-clicked.

I'm not a big fan of social media-sharing-anything, so you might want to spend some time on all the account pages to make sure you have the privacy level that you want.

Tom,

I really hate to bother you with this but I've been trying to get an image inserted in the message shown below for an hour using both flickr and Google photos with no luck. Below is the text of the message that I am trying to post.

I followed the instructions in How to post an image and entered: google and the photo URL from google in the top line; flickr and my login for a flickr photo.

The URL of the image is: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qmUtuhrARs53MU3FA

Could you be so kind as to point out my error. Thanks.

Are you having problems inserting the image?  All you have to do to insert the image is:

(1) paste that link in the box to the left of the "pics" button
(2) select google photos (instead of flickr) in the drop down
(3) click on the "pics" button

See image below.  The rest should be self explanatory.

Can anyone give me some insight on how to upload videos from googephotos? I have no trouble with still images but my attempts at uploading videos are failing so far.

I would suggest YouTube. I don't know if there's any good way to embed videos for Google photos unless they provide embed code.

Hey Tom - I thought I was doing nwhikers a favor by hosting my own images, but just realized that even for the lightbox (not just thumbs) you're copying them to /forums/uploads (and potentially downscaling) whether or not they're wider than 1600 pixels. I don't see this happening for flickr or google, probably because they take scaling parameters.  Just wondering what your thoughts are on this - should I move from S3/Cloudfront back to google photos?  Or would you consider just linking to originals (and have users deal with browser scaling if posters don't size them correctly)?  Not sure how many people flip through the lightbox, but I hate to consume any unnecessary bandwidth.

We preserve a copy of everything now, scaled as appropriate if the image is too big to display. There is a link to the original source in the lightbox but we are displaying the copy.  There is no need to keep hosting your images unless you want the original size preserved.  We did this because so many images had disappeared over the years and then in 2018 flickr was threatening to delete photos unless folks paid their ransom, which would have be catastrophic for NWH.  The images are hosted on a different server (nwhikers.org) as we do not have the storage capacity on our main server (nwhikers.net).

Oh, duh.  Thanks for hosting what must be a big chunk of data.  By serving my own I was also hoping to get around the 1600 limit, since they're so small on a hi res display.  (Presumably most people don't "view original", or even pull up the lightbox.)  But now I see why it makes sense to have this limit.
