Good work Oliver, I mean photo pasting - the personnel carrier speaks for itself.

Makes you feel like a Jedi Knight, doesn't it? 👍

Cocky I feel your pain! Some kind of 1st world crisis for us.

I took the liberty of looking at your profile - I think it's an age thing !! Know right well my daughters could do it eyes closed.

I'm 1953 by way of consolation, with a touch screen phone- I ordered a book off Amazon once, and ended up getting THREE of them..

Hey,whaddaya gonna do....?

We're going to keep trying, ...

Sorry I got no recommendations for you, just moral support!

I can do it ,it is just that how to do it changes every time and it takes for ages .

I am 57 .I think the interweb is the greatest thing in the entire history of the world .

You might not remember Fireball XL5 ,made by the same guy who did stingray and thunderbirds.

Anyway because of youtube i could hear again it's theme song ,might sound silly .

Yes it can be a bit stressful at times .Recently upgraded to BT infinity and started having problems with losing connection .

I Googled and found it might be Avast antivirus that was was causing the problem ,i uninstalled that and installed AVG free antivirus instead .

It might be a coincidence but it hasn't happened since .The interweb would be a lot better if there were not so many scammers and idiots on it .

I am still waiting for my share of a million pounds i was promised for lending a guy £5000 :D:D.

I once got a scam email from someone pretending to be from the FBI ,it was a few months after our holiday in America ,i thought what have i done  now.

Hello chap - that depends on the sentence in the address bar.  To me, the address bar means the top bit of your browser where you'd enter a URL for a website you wanted to visit.  When you're looking at your PB page choose Share, and you should be able to copy either "Direct" or "IMG" from the options on the right.  You can choose either, as they both end up with the same result :)

 

 

DIRECT

Sky fan you're like me, trying too hard. Make sure the photos are unlocked for public viewing. Then do.nt bother with insert other.... paste it straight into the window. Touchscreen phone just hold on the cursor till it says" paste", and tap. Computers probably right click mouse or something.

Don't give up, once you get it, you'll wonder what your problem was!!

( Notwithstanding what the admin.advise, mike etc. who actually know what they're talking about)

Can't seem to post pixs from Google pictures. Is this not allowed? I copied the link from sharing and pasted it into the box but the box turned pink.

Have you marked them for Public view?

I'm not familiar with Google pics, but that was a tripping point for me on flickr.

The default is Private and pics need unlocking into Public gallery. So I'm thinking it's the same for your pictures?

Just a long shot - I'm new to this stuff, and on a steep learning curve myself.

Found out I cannot use Google Photos since there is no option to turn on Public folder since they retired Picasa. So I deleted my photos from there and move to imgur.
