    Try this google search and use one of the widgets on offer to make an embedded link to Google Photos, if nothing else it might give you an insight into the structure of the output to embed here.

    "embed google photo in website"


    On some other sites where I have had issues posting images or video (YouTube) it has sometimes been an http vs https situation and removing (or adding) the "s" has resolved the matter. I notice this site here is http (as is my own site) but the links you are getting from Google are obviously going to be https given they are the driving force behind the transition to ssl everywhere.


    Complete speculation on my part that these things will do anything to fix the current problem.

      Thanks, recped. I might wait a while and see what the IT guy says.

        As doug said earlier, it's really not unusual for google to wake up one morning and decide to break something that's worked for years. It's possible that the way you've been obtaining links is an undocumented feature. I noticed this post from someone who said photo links "suddenly" stopped working, and was told to use Drive.

        Yes, we do all sit around waiting for your trip reports!

          Thanks, goonstroke. I will look at this. In the very beginning, I started out using google drive, but it was not effective.

            I use Google for some things, including Gmail, but have noticed a tendency for Google to change aspects and functions without notice. Some time in the last couple of weeks the appearance of Gmail changed. I couldn’t find the “Compose” function without hovering cursor at the top left.

            Maybe something changed in Google Photos settings or operations?

              Yes, Mike, I noticed tat also about my gmail, which changed about the same time as my images disappeared. But listen to this. I check my trip reports periodically to see if they have miraculously resurrected themselves. And guess what? Great Slave Lake, Winter Lake to Point Lake, Seal River, and Anderson River are all back. Page two of the Coppermine River is back, but not page 1, the South Nahanni River, South Saskatchewan River, and the Yukon River remain in hiding

              This is all very strange, indeed. I am curious what the IT guy would say about this, dougd.

                Perhaps I was a little bit overly euphoric. Some of the TRs that came back were originally posted through Flickr, such as my Seal River TR, and the Great Slave Lake TR. Nevertheless the images for these two images were not visible a few days ago. The South Nahanni, South Sasktatchewan and Yukon were all originally posted through google photos, and they are not back.

                  Interesting that Robin's picture is now missing!

                    Yes. Very interesting. I still would like to know if images posted on our website are actually physical/electronically on our website. If yes, then something goes wrong on our website, on terms of retaining google photos. If the viewer has to link back to google photos every time, then the problem lies with linking back, at either or both ends. I think, however, that it would be very cumbersome to require linking back every time.

                    Some of my google photos, such as South Nahanni River were visible for more than six months before they disappeared.
