If I click the link it does take me to a small photo in Google Pictures.

If you start a thread or reply to one, click on the Mona Lisa icon and it will insert

Paste your link between those brackets. Your pics will have to be on a photo imaging site like Photobucket. (I'm not endorsing Photobucket ... I don't especially like it ... but it works). So paste the pic's link from Photobucket, etc. between the brackets.

It can be done, I believe this is the picture you were trying to post. Google Plus doesn't provide an EASY method of embedding pictures. There is a way, but it's very convoluted and not for the faint of heart.

This is done using Mozilla FireFox on a Windows PC. Open up your photo on Google Plus. Hold down your Control Key (Ctrl) and then left click on the picture. The picture will open in a new tab. Go to that tab and right click the picture and select "Copy Image Location". That copies the image location to your computers clipboard.

Come to Blades and Bushlore and compose a post.

Use the IMG Tag and then right click your mouse and paste in the link.

The link you paste in must be between the IMG Tags as shown below:

Here's the post I created to show the picture above:

Yikes!  That is really long.  Photobucket (cause that is the one I know how to use) is a snap compared to that.

That is the photo I saw on the Google Photo link.
