How to Use Google Drive as a 3rd Party Image Hosting Platform

So back when the horrid surprise of Photobucket’s greedapalooza was still fresh, a lot of people were looking for third party hosting alternatives. Someone out there had a really helpful list of potentials, but for various reasons, none of them suited me. I wondered whether I could make use of Google Photos as a third party platform.

As it happened, I couldn’t. Google had very recently ended its image hosting capabilities — unfortunate timing, that — but I did some poking about and found that there’s a work-around that lets you still use Google Drive as a third party platform. At least one person (hi,
[personal profile] azriona !) was interested, so this is my attempt to tell people how to use this process.

I’m including a link to the YouTube video that taught me how to do this, which you might prefer to following my step-by-step. Here 'tis: https://youtu.be/zhwYRPImH9E.

So you have your Google account and you’re ready to start.

  1. Choose an image to upload, possibly from your own newly-created “Fuck Photobucket” file on your hard drive. Upload it to Google Drive. If you’re using Chrome, you’ll do it thusly (and if you’re using Firefox, Safari, or whatever, it will probably be fairly similar.) Click on Google Drive. Once you’re in drive, click on New, which is near the top left. You should get a drop down menu that includes “File Upload.” Hit it, and pretty soon your picture will appear in your drive. I put all my uploaded pics in one Drive folder for ease of access, along with my Permalinks record, so everything’s in the same place.

  2. Now you want to adjust the picture’s “share” settings, so that it’s “Public on the Web.” How to do that? Your trusty right click button. Don’t open the picture; just right click on the thumbnail/description in the Drive list. When you do, you’ll see a bunch of options.

  3. Open the “Share” option. A window should open up. Pay attention only to “Advanced.” Click “Advanced.”

  4. You’ll get a different window. Look for “Who Has Access.” It will probably be set at “Private — Only You Can Access.” You’ll want to change that, so hit “Change.”

  5. You’ll get three options. The one you want is “On — Public on the Web.” Make sure that button is the one you hit, then hit “Save.”

  6. You’ll then have a “Link to Share.” Copy that sucker, and head on over to gdurl.com.

  7. The very first thing you’ll see once you go to that site is a spot that says “Paste a Public Google Drive URL etc.” Put your URL there, and hit “Create Permalink.” Go down a little farther on the page, and there, under “Standard URL” you will have your shiny new permalink. Copy that permalink, along with a description of what the pic/image is, to whatever document you’ll be using to keep the information.

  8. Voila! You now have the code you need to embed your photo wherever you want to embed it! (If we’re talking LJ or Dreamwidth, you’ll have be able to insert it via the "insert/edit image" or "insert photo" icons. I do it in the rich text format.)  And, because you’ve saved the permalink and a description in a file somewhere, you can use the same code again and again!

  9. EDIT as of 22 April, 2019: It appears as if gdurl.com no longer provides the http://gdurl.com/ section of the code when it creates your permalink. Don't despair. Take the admittedly confusing very short piece of code you get when you hit "create permalink" - it'll be something like RbKx - and simply put in the http://gdurl.com/ in front. I'm not sure why gdurl is only providing the latter half of the URL,, nor can I guess whether this change will disappear and things will go back to what they were, but this is how to deal with it

So there you have my extremely wordy how-to. I hope it might be of help to someone.

Dept. of Fandom Snowflake



Welcome - Let Me Talk About Myself!

This year I decided I'd take part in
[community profile] snowflake_challenge , in part because I want to keep active in fandom, tell people how much I value them and, (probably more than) occasionally, talk about who I am and why I do what I do.

The first challenge asked me to introduce myself to people. So here goes, but I've put it under a cut because it goes on and on and on.

Pray For Me; I Signed Up For NaNoWriMo

I've spent much of the day wondering if it was the right thing to do, and the rest of the day being kind of excited about it. (Some time was also spent reintroducing myself to various Discord channels. Wow ....) I have, through the NaNoWriMo site, joined a group here in Chicago that meets and does early (early for me, at least) 30-minute Zoom-enabled writing sprints. I figure that could be a good way to prepare for Nov. 1.

Two Undoubtedly Unwise Things

1. I made banana bread and about 5 dozen pumpkin cookies today, for reasons about which I'm not entirely clear. For someone trying to eat more healthily, this was probably not the best idea, especially since supper then consisted of two slices of banana bread and 5 cookies. I'm thinking of pawning most of them off on a neighbor, with a few left for Bob. 

2. I'm thinking of doing NaNoWriMo this year.

Dune

We saw it in the theatre tonight; the first time in two years that we've seen a movie that wasn't on our television or computer screens.

I'm glad we did.  It was excellent. 

It was also long, so I'm heading to bed now, but, yeah, if you have the ability to do so, go see it on the large screen. It's worth it.

My Beloved Son



This is Andy. He turned 37 today, as of about 1 p.m. Chicago time. I've twigged him mercilessly over the years for having taken 54 hours to arrive, and ensure that my entrance to motherhood was morphine-addled. But I am so very, very glad he arrived. 

He is extremely intelligent. He's witty and funny (there's a difference, but he's mastered both.) He's musically talented, he's a writer, a poet, an actor with massive comedic chops. 

He's kind. He's gentle. He's learned to be patient. He's going to be the kind of wonderful father that Bob was to him. 

He's gifted us with heartbreak, laughter, joy, frustration, anger, sorrow, happiness, delight, and love. So much love. I am so lucky that he entered my world. I love you, Andy. Happy Birthday, and may the coming year be magnificent for you.

Ingress OT3

Dept. of Memes

Frankenstein Meme, Day 25

A trope which you are virtually certain to love in any fandom.

Coming back to this meme after more than a bit of time away, and this is the first question I have to answer? Not fair, Frankenstein Meme, not fair!

It’s not fair because I can’t easily pinpoint tropes, either the ones I like or the ones I don’t, probably because I don’t think in terms of tropes.

But without going to TV Tropes (because that way lies madness) let’s see; if “found family” is a trope, then I will always try out a story I spot that in. Is “mistreated underdog getting her own back” a trope? Then that’s for me, and I don’t care if it’s a little mean-spirited. I
like seeing bullies and douchecanoes get what’s coming to them. Perhaps if I just label it “Justice! Finally!” it won’t sound as mean-spirited?

Ah, wait; “hurt-comfort” is a trope, right? That’s one I’ll generally read, doesn’t matter what fandom. In fact, if  “comfort” alone is a trope, then that’s one I love as well.

”Finding love in an OT3 — is that a trope? Then it’s a winner in my book.
