So I have read the sticky and I'm still not able to post pics and it's driving me mad.

I'm using Google drive to share as Dropbox wasn't working,I do most of my posts via my phone so I need something like drive I can share the images.

Am I missing something really easy??

EDIT: using Flickr and still no luck!

Cheers

Buster

If the image is available for viewing online, all you need to do is add
at the end of the URL. The image will then appear in your post.

So if you find the image in your drive, click the 'preview' button to see the image on your browser, then ctrl click (or whatever the phone version is) and choose to copy image URL. That will allow you to paste something like the following URL into the thread.

https://drive.google.com/thumbnail?...RUTQ&authuser=0&v=1430342458000&sz=w1042-h486

Which when enclosed by the text described above appears as an image in your post.

I think Google randomly change the image URL for any images stored in Google Drive, use Google +'s or Picasa's photo album feature instead, better still become a member and host your images here. :)
