In spite of the many complicated solutions suggested here for putting a photo in a post, it's not that complicated. The simplest way is to use the RV.NET provided Photo Post & Upload website that properly sizes the photo and provides a link to copy and past here.


I need an easy solution that works on any forum, not just the rv.net forum.

With fototime, I could just right click on the photo and it copied a link to my clipboard that I could paste anywhere. I could post the image or a link to the image. I could also create albums containing photos for a certain topic, like a vacation and then easily copy and paste the link to the album anywhere.


Actually, you can use the RV.net photo posting is great for other websites..

You can copy entire URL from that app, then remove the RV.net forum specific parts. which is the beginning part where you see the brackets..

So what you would see as " bracket IMG bracket" at the beginning and " bracket /img bracket " at the end you can remove and now you have a photo usable on other websites.

So, a jpg I posted using the RV.net app would now look like this once I remove the RV.net formating..

And it does work just by dropping that address above into your browser..

Here is that link setup as a clickable link HERE

Those photos are hosted on imgur.com and supposedly (I have not tried it) you are supposed to be able to manage them.. You could even sign up for imgur for your own account..

Thanks, but I'm going with a big name photo hosting site this time.

Thanks, but that wouldn't work for me; too slow, too cumbersome. That might work for a photo or two, but I sometimes batch upload 100's of photos at one time. I also need to be able to set up albums with specific photos in it. Plus, rv.net could cut that off the ability to post photos on their web site on another forum at any time. Most forums which host photos already do that.

Thanks!
See if you can display a google image here.


See if you can access from my links, here is some PDFs from my Google shared docs folder..

Homemade wire lugs..

Click HERE

My TT Rebuild PDF..

HERE

My 8700W gen sound test video (for those folks thinking the muffler is where the sound comes from)

HERE

If you can open up my PDF and video links, pix files will be no issue..

You do not "need" to use Google pix for sharing pictures either.. Just use the Google drive and set for sharing..

May take a couple of tries to get it working as it isn't 100% obvious on how to do it.. Thought about making a doc to show how it is done but by the time I would get it posted Google would most likely have changed how to set it up..

Yes, your links all work fine.
Thanks for the pointers.

Which one? I didn't know there were any 'big names' in that business. [emoticon]

Please do not use this for other websites. This app was meant for only this forum to help members who were struggling to include photos in their posts. The photo posting process here is so annoying even to myself, I decided to quickly put this together one night.

IMGUR.com sets a daily limit on the number of uploads using their API, and requires a request to increase the limit if they are exceeded. If the this app is not working on some occasions, it could be due to the daily limit being exceeded.

Regarding posting Google Drive photos, I used the browser's developer tools to find the URL link.

However, there may be an easier way. A search found this tool that reports to convert a Google Drive photo link to a URL link you can use to post photos.



Just note that since Google is not providing the URL hotlink directly, they could change the link method used to access the photos at any time.

I use Google Drive for all non-photo document needs, but I just don't understand what Google Drive brings to photos. I guess I am dense, but Google Photos meets ALL my photo needs. In either case, the photos are in the Google Cloud and the two apps are just the tools Google offers to manage/access them.

Information on the subject: Google Drive vs. Google Photos: What's the difference?
