same screenshot as this (don't know how to post a screenshot either)

bb1836 got it to work in the end, he sent me a PM but he didn't explain exactly how.

I'll send him a PM to have a look here and maybe he could help us out.

You're welcome.

And nope. I never understood why people would do that, the info is baked into the file anyway. Why slap something permanent and distracting on your photograph?

correct. after searching some answer boards it seems like google my photos does not support image embedding. will set up yahoo account for flickr and take that route

Thanks! I've been meaning to ask you (or maybe even not be lazy and actually figure it out myself  :) ) how to make the link on private photos work.

For an example of what happens when you don't do steps 6-8 above on a private photo, see here

how do you rename a link?
like button= thanks. ;)            Feel free to PM me

You just did.  ;) (In the quote) In case you ever forget how to do it, just quote a post that has a renamed link and see how it's done.
