I think you're trying to use google photos? Might be the share settings. I found it a massive faff to add images from compared to Imgur. Particularly from the phone which is where I'm mostly using it. It is doable but required a few steps. Things may have changed in recent years but this was my process previously:,18128.msg270293.html.

These days I tend to just use Imgur (,20026.0.html). You can actually skip the height and width setting on the new forum as it will automatically size it for you. It's also much easier now to just grab the link to the image and insert it using the add image link. I've even had success just right-clicking on the image and copy and paste it into the reply window here.

Trying again

Using     to adapt a google photo share link to something that can be embedded.

The castle has an interesting history, changing from a traditional castle to a cannon platform during construction.

A large gunpowder explosion wrecked the middle in 1816, and the area has a wildlife meadow look to it.


And a view from the outside, this is where the cannon would be pointed.


Thats fantastically realistic for 10mm.

QuoteLooks well worth a visit ;)
Kos has a lot to see in a very compact area.

A range of "Overlords": from Minoans to British prior to joining Greece.

Few remains from the Minoans to the Persians. Plenty to see from the ages of Athens, Ptolemies, Rome/Byzantium, Hospitallers, Ottomans, Italy.

Then there's the climate and food..
Plenty to recommend it once travel gets moving again.
