    Hi all

    Is there a way to get images from Google Photo Albums to show in posts?
    This is the share url from one of my members - https://goo.gl/photos/inFC3ZqnnekoDaydA

    But when inserting it as an image it doesn't show the image.

    The only way that it would be possible is if it provided embed HTML code. If that was the case then you would be able to set up a BB code media site (like YouTube etc.). But Google Photos doesn't seem to provide anything like that so you'll just have to share plain links instead.

    Using image's location.

    How did you get the actual URL?

    I presume you used a browser inspector as I don't see anything on the page regarding it.

    Using Firefox, open the image, right click and then select copy image location.

    In Chrome it would be the same procedure, but select copy image address.

    Not sure in IE. Don't have it any more.

    I know it's not the perfect solution, but it is possible.
