So...hopefully now that gets us caught up! And we can go back to regularly scheduled updates and not technical difficulties! Cheesy

Ok, here are some long overdue Tampa Bay Comic Con pics!! Let's hope this works! Grin

First off, it takes place in Downtown Tampa. It was a rainy weekend but the parking garage gave us some nice views including the arena where the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning play:

The convention center is pretty big and the con takes over the whole building:

There was a professional cosplay group with a look-alike Rick and Abraham from The Walking Dead and man...they really looked good!

Late in the day a Jedi/Sith battle broke out!

...But thankfully no ghosts were harmed:

Hatty tried on a Game of Thrones helmet but it wasn't her size:

And it turns out, these WERE the droids they were looking for! Grin

PFD, I think this might help with you broken image:
I use Google Photos for my picture hosting now. It can be a little tricky - you need to add the photos to a shared album, or get a shared link, and from that location, right-click the photo to open photo in a new tab without the Google Photo interface. Copy that insanely long address just like you would for one of the addresses that actually end with a file image type. The trick is making sure the image you are trying to post has been put in a public/shared album for "anyone with a link". You can test the links by opening an incognito mode in your browser so you aren't logged in to your Google account from that window and see if someone else would see it from the link.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I actually did that in the test image. I always add my LV pics to a public shared LV album. I copied the insanely long link and one person could see it; one could not. I've heard from some people elsewhere that "public" might really be "public for anyone with a google account" but I don't know for sure. (I had problems on another forum before I found the specific hotlink url for images via the Picasa interface. Some would see public shared images and some would not via that stupidly long link. But EVERYONE saw them via the shorter Picasa link that ended in .jpg It worked that way for over a year until they officially just retired Picasa and changed the access page to basically an archive and took away the TRUE direct file link url access.)

Flickr should hopefully work basically the same though since I got it to auto backup my camera pics too. It makes them private by default but it's simple enough to select the ones I want to make public and then it gives me the direct URL link (it actually gives the BBC code so it's even less work on my part; just copy and paste.)

I don't know why Google Photos doesn't seem to play well with everyone, but it's touchy again now that the Picasa interface is gone. Undecided

works for me
Yay! Looks like the flickr app will also auto upload my pics direct from my phone and then I can share them from there. Goodness, I hope this works out without all the extra steps! I'm off to spend the day with my Mom (recovering from her hip replacement surgery) and the backlog of pics is still uploading so I'll try to get updated on sharing my photos later tonight!

Aw boo! That's not fair!

I also love putting getting snail mail!  My post guy is also happy...he says he loves to see all the places my friends come from since he is a home boy and has never left the city!
My mailman loves me and calls me a "VIP" because I send and receive so much mail (in large part due to owning an online business) that he says I am job security! Cheesy Grin

I just go through all the steps... take the picture, wait for the upload to google photos, download the picture, save as a jpg, upload to craftster, copy and paste into post. some days it seems too much work, some days it is no bother at all. Depends on my mood that day.
Yeah it's just I can take a dozen or more pics per outing. And I am already vastly running out of hard drive space on my pc as it is. Yes, I can delete them after downloading and then re-uploading them here but...ugh. Again with the "don't want 5 steps per photo" problem in the first place.  Undecided

Sorry PFD, not seeing your picture Sad

I can see it.
Grr. See that's the problem I used to have. SOME people could see them and SOME could not. Then I found the direct hosting option via Picasa. And that worked great. Now...not so much. I just need to figure out how the heck to easily share pics now without five steps per photo. Cry Undecided

GRR!! Google photos did some kind of change and now how I used to be able to link to them (through picasa) won't work anymore and the links I try to get direct from google photos are MASSIVE and don't end in a file type (i.e. they're not .jpg) so I don't know if they will work!! The whole point of how I've done it is that my photos from my phone auto sync to my google account and then I added them to a LV folder and linked pics from there. Now I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to download all of the pics individually (making duplicates on my hard drive and taking up valuable space I don't have) to then upload them here. Angry Angry Angry

Here's a test of a pic. Let me know please if this works? Otherwise I have to COMPLETELY change how I share photos and right now I have no idea how to even begin!!!
