    So lately, I've been finding it impossible to post pics in my for sale ads.

    I have an Android, where I take most of my photos. They automatically get backed up for me....

    However, I used to just go to Picasaweb, click on the photo, and there would be a little URL I could copy and past into the image link here on TGP, in my for sale posts.

    Now Picasaweb redirects to Google+. You can share a photo publicly on Google+, but those links do not work when I paste them into the TGP 'Image' link. I think because they are https: maybe?

    Yeah I can drag the photos over to some other site, but why did it work fine on Google, and now not at all? Don't want to deal with moving them if I don't have to...

    Anyone else have this issue? There must be some others.....

    I thought for sure it was a google issue. You think it was the old TGP board software?

    I just tried to include a photo hosted in Google Photos in a FS ad and was unable to do so similar to the OP.

    Mods, any thoughts?

    I was using that function--didn't work. Do you think it's a Google issue?

    No I think it's a Zenforo issue.
