How to post pictures from other websites?

I am going to start with Google Photos because that would be the easiest. Can we link to Google photos? If yes how (stepwise) do we do it?

I also have a Flickr account so if I can't use Google photos I can use flickr and I know it is possible to do it from that site but I couldn't get it to work. I tried copying the address at the top of the screen, I tried copying the embed link from Flickr, I tried with both the s and without the s in https. Nothing I tried worked.

I know that I can upload pictures here but I was trying to do an external site.

Click on the small square symbol on the bar just above the box you're typing your post in that looks like a yellow postage stamp with two mountain peaks at the bottom
This opens a script prompt box where you paste in the address (URL) of the new photo link and click OK
The photo should then appear in your posted message.

Just winging it is not a plan

It depends if the site you're trying to link from allows hot linking. What that means is linking pics from their site elsewhere. Some sites do not allow it because even though you're linking it on a different website it still uses their bandwidth when someone looks/clicks on the picture. So if you try and link a picture and it doesn't work, means you need to save it and attach it or upload it somewhere that allows hot linking.

But others are linking to Flickr. I have seen it. Just none of the ways I tried worked.
