Ffosse, it doesn't matter where on the internet your photos are stored. If they are in Google Photos then just RIGHT CLICK on one of the photos and copy its URL as per my post above. Then you can insert the image into any post you make here using the Insert Image icon and pasting the URL in the box.

I had a quick look because I use Photos too but I don't use my phone to access this forum.

Google Photos on your android phone will give you a 'link' but that is useless in this forum - you need the URL. So you need to log in to Google photos using the internet browser rather than the Photos app.

However as far as I can google you cannot even use the built in internet browser you need to load a third party one like Firefox, Safari or Chrome because that is the only way you can get the URL of a photo in Google Photos. I am not convinced that is true but as I haven't tried it I cannot say..

You don't Tess. Read my post again.

You first upload your photos to the internet somewhere, anywhere is doesn't matter. It can be Google Photos or some image hosting site or it can be this forum in your personal albums.

THEN and only then do you bring up the photo (the INTERNET version) and RIGHT CLICK to get to the property settings.

Re: How do I post photos

I have just been reading through.
I am able to transfer to my laptop.
No problems with that.
I am able to transfer my pics on this phone to Postimage. I can get the code.
But no idea how to paste that code on my phone.

Right. So let's start from there.

Your photos are on your laptop in a folder somewhere. I presume you know which folder?!!

So . . . .

Go into your personal Profile page on this forum (Over 50s forum)

Go into your ALBUMS

Click the UPLOAD Button

When the window pops up, navigate to the folder where your photos are. Select a photo and upload it. Repeat for all the photos you want to share.

This is just the first step. To get the photos uploaded to this site into your Albums.

Once you get that far we will deal with the rest

Sorry, let me explain. I do have photos on my laptop. I have downloaded from my camera.
I cannot for the life of me download the photos from my phone to my laptop. Sorry, I am stupid.
Like I said earlier, I can use postimage on my phone and I get the code. I just don't know how to paste that code in the letterbox thing.

So you can copy the code from postimage?

Tap the mountains in the box icon above the reply box (like you would click on a lappy). When the place where you need to put the code appears tap and HOLD.....then options should appear including paste......

If you can't transfer pics from your phone to your lappy using a cable then email them to yourself and pick them up on the lappy.

Or, use a chat box on Faceache, or even post them to Faceache, save to your lappy then delete from Faceache.
