    A note of interest for people who use Google Photos.

    As you may have noticed, you can hit "share" on your photo and grab a link, but the URL isn't a JPG which means that Talkbass doesn't recognize it as a photo when you paste it in. Boo!

    Here is a solution. It is surprisingly easy. Get your shareable link, flip over to Talkbass and hit the "image" icon and paste it in, and then add "?.jpg" to the end of it (without the quotes, dummy). Voila, a valid JPG link.

    You're welcome.

    Yes, but can everyone see them?
    I've pasted in gOOgle photos many times & stopped doing it, because most others couldn't see them.
