That's from my cell phone but I'm not sure if it came from google or from my phone since it's on my phone, but I'm trying to get this to work from my laptop

Please upload the pics like you've been doing. You're free to also post a link to the share as well. But it's much more engauging to other users to simply view the images you're talking about. Instead of following a link and digging through and trying to find the image they're searching for.

You might could select certain images from your google cloud and save them individually to your desktop or Home Screen , then click and drag said image to your post. I’m just guessing.

I thouight the new site set up allowed easier posting of pictures.
I find it quick and easy.
On the post, Click attach files.
(you will have Placed the pictures you want to attach on you desktop screen).
There will be a list displayed of pictures.
Double click the picture you want to attach.
And there you go, you should see the picture on your post reply page,
review it or post reply.I don't use the cloud or complicated storage.

Issue is I don't load pics to my desktop, they are on my phone or in the cloud,if I post from my phone it's fine, if I use another device it needs to be pulled from the cloud which dosent seem to work without sharing my entire cloud which I don't want

That's what I'm trying to figure out 🙂

That's related to Apple. If you're trying to share from a device that doesn't have the image, Apple tries to share from the cloud instead of copying it locally and then uploading.
