Google drive photos

Discussion in 'Feedback and Help Requests' started by Satanfriendly, Thursday January 11, 2018.

  1. Does anyone know how to embed a photo from Google drive on to a forum post?

    Any help very much appreciated.

    Ps. I used to use photobucket but their T&C's changed unfavourably

    Not straightforward, but doable:

    Go to https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive
    Find your image. Double click on it. A preview will open.
    At the top right are three vertical dots. Click on them. Click on 'Share'
    Click on 'Get shareable link' - it will say 'Link copied to clipboard'
    Unfortunately that link doesn't work.
    Now you go to https://sites.google.com/site/gdocs2direct/
    Copy the link into the first input field. Click 'Create direct link'
    Copy the generated link.
    Insert image into post. Copy generated link as Image URL.
    Done.

    I just did that and the result is...

  3. probably need a little more help here. I have a a photo of two which I have no problem getting the links etc but when I try to post them they are rotated 90 degrees. I have tried turning the photo on my google drive but they end up the same.

    Any ideas how I might overcome this?

    eg:

    Not sure what's wrong with that. Which corner is the blue panel with the brush supposed to be in?

    Those problems are a pain in the neck.
    Is that image straight from a camera or has it been edited? I assume the former.
    If so, load into image into an image editing program and save it again (maybe make a tiny, tiny edit first). That often fixes rotation meta data problems that shouldn't be a problem.
    All I can suggest right now. Sorry.

  7. Thanks the hints riverrun. I shall try cropping a little and see if that resolves the issue.
