Works for me so far, Nick, but I'm not sure the takeover has taken place already. Promise was that there won't be a difference. I also just copy and paste the URL, pretty straightforward.

P.S.: I still have some strings for you!

I know they're safe with you, they're flats, you probably haven't even considered opening the packet! Yep I haven't forgotten :)

Yahoo was the previous owner of Flickr, who I've always found to be one of the most tonedeaf tech companies out there.
I've been a paying smugmug customer for almost a decade, they know their customer base, and have a great product. My early reading of the situation is that they probably saved Flickr.

There's a caveat to this, google photos doesn't work directly.

Here is a share link shared directly from google photos:

Code: Select all

https://photos.app.goo.gl/H6HTuVwfgsyCLZKS7
https://photos.app.goo.gl/H6HTuVwfgsyCLZKS7


There is a workaround, you need to connect google photos into google drive, then you can share from google drive:

Code: Select all

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MmYJXR2QrU-xVwWz_np7Nf3vivgudDaeig/view?usp=sharing

When we installed the new sharing plugin, I posted an incomplete, but comprehensive example of available options here:

(which reminds me, Phil - we need to update the plugin...)
