Now that Picasa is no more, we must rely on the new Google Photos to share our images.
If you haven't been redirected yet, go to the following URL: https://photos.google.com/
SET UP YOUR HPC FOLDER
You should only have to do this part once.
In Google Photos, click on the + sign at the top right of the page.
Select "Create new... Album"
You'll have to select one of your existing photos.
And rename the album.
In the upper right-hand corner of the page, click on the "More Options" button which is the 3 vertical dots.
Click "Sharing Options".
Switch to "Shared Album".
Switch off "Collaborate" and close the dialog. Your folder should be all set up now.
POST AN IMAGE
Go to your album. You upload photos by dragging them from your PC and dropping them into the browser window.
PLEASE TRY TO RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO 1200 PIXELS WIDE OR LESS BEFORE UPLOADING. I know I can be guilty of not doing this, but please try if you can.
Then, select one of your photos by clicking on it.
You can edit it or whatever from here, but you can't resize, so that's kind of useless at the moment.
At any rate, from this window, right click on the image and select "Copy image address."
Go to the thread where you're posting your image and create a new post. In the new post editor, place your cursor in the textarea and click the image button.
Then, paste your image url into the tag either with Control+V or whatever method you prefer.
Save the form.
There he is, in all his majesty!
All previous years HPC threads can be found within as well!
