I just right click on photo, copy URL then put that URL between the img tags you get when clicking on Inset Image icon.

No-can-do with photos on your Google Drive.  Google does not provide links to embed photos. You can only share a clickable link that takes someone to the photo.

I have read there are some ways you can do it, but none of them are via an embed link direct from Google. They are pretty easily understood but not quick and easy.

edit to add: JR - doing what you describe gets this:

INSERT IMAGE:




INSERT URL:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yiWmBCZ3phkdKexXZgKd4DxOF1cIPzrbdQ/view?usp=sharing

Meaning: You can do a quick "how-to" that will allow for embedding photos from my Google Drive?


Edit to add: This is an example of the info I have been able to find on using Google to host image files as opposed to just being able to provide a clickable link that takes someone directly to that photo.

I know I did this before and it didn't work. Seems to work now.

This seems to be working, for now:
From Google PHOTOS, right click on the preview (thumbnail) images and click open in a new window.  The new window will have the "real" address for the image....copy / paste between the [img] tags.  Although, my first test worked for a few hours then failed....the rest seem to be intact for several days.

Open Google Photos from your Google mail account.

Click on Thumbnail you want to place on forum.

Right click on full pic, from popup menu select Copy Image Location.

On BR click on Insert Image icon.  You should see {img}flashing cursor{/img}  --  it will have regular brackets[] instead of {}

with the cursor flashing in the middle, press Ctrl+V

You should have ---

{img}https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/csMHeE-o4LRnMLghn-MicyYboiES6vNjSxxXQiSOdRKOZRsuOLFy-pjH7SdEXsl5Af-6rMId9LJmdMAI2i3GVAymeaO4oP_FY_GCN_74OEJ2OMXcKHomCWn6K-iaYIzR97LpVSpznII4zbWruELYyYKgKj-h9oqRMoPxHsl4U_Yz9mRd4ae6vX1iB0eeRF7SJBz8YYXqzVzqXdSJnI3yxFvI06nQt1PIU1DZMe1odbnFqFUuBo0vu_KFokf-IHbG5FFM-LZjMCjjH-JMd0nS22KfZJCMJ6gQwiTWfRic8l0e9Jwvt1tMWQIsdMluNmkcksLj1-SeJ7i-KyCtj6Oc4-BJrjGPx3sdpOMSfeSiI1mXGziOWLfgbsnodP20U1U8HEGWWZ8G5w8J01Y20X3GTwqRG6SiNY5tEgMYlxop9NJzVrlZgCLkolsL9zWq1B0O2LdFrJFy4N76p4PB5ylMvrPfbRofF__VPnpFRAkUXu6JTahwsb4beYuB-qX0Zq4LeBHO_qxC8eGxDbfL_3KRZAenfkts7JB5CIH_405Bvgg5wHEuKGYYanqUTjK0tt9O_oopcBBHXWl4TvYUkQCV9a0IEZ6__YEpCTiLUOoY89Iotl9tvUkCriR_=w1380-h914-no{/img}

I can't see your picture.  Or my original now. I'm thinking it may be a sharing setting on google, don't know. I do know I like smugmug, it works!
