What is the deal; are we able to share photos that are otherwise private on google drive, with the share link (anyone with link can view the image) on here? I feel like I had previously been able to do that, but not so much anymore.

There's a photo of snow here that I tried to share that isn't coming across.

I think that people are pasting in the code.

If you're using Chrome, you can right-click on something, then choose 'Inspect' in the pop-up menu. A new window will open that will show you all the code that makes up the page you're looking at. You want whatever starts with "img src", from the first '<' to the closing '>'.

See, I just pulled this off of Etsy:

I did a work around.

My issue was sharing a private photo from my google drive. (It does not give the option to inspect or copy the image address, only to access a link, so that it can be shared with anyone that has the link.) I thought I had done that before, but maybe not.

I just used a screen capture app to basically take a screenshot of the image stored in my google drive, then it's accessible through their website, and I was able to copy the image address from there.

Thanks anyway! If anyone has any other better alternatives to my work around, feel free to let me know
