Default My images disappear from my posts

I paste my images from Picasa to my posts. Today, they randomly started to disappear and re-appear. I go to my posts to read other people's comments and noticed that some or all of images are gone. Then when I re-open the same post a few minutes later, some or all of the images are back. Do you know what is happening?

I'm assuming you mean the photos in the first post in this thread:

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pa...e-birdies.html

I'd ask Google. It's not a forums issue, as the links you used don't work (even if you paste them directly into the address bar of a browser like Firefox, IE, etc.).

Here are the links you used in that first post:

Code:

http://lh5.ggpht.com/_fr0ZoeNIXNo/TKd6AgmbhMI/AAAAAAAAAGA/zH8ROPiRWjw/s800/for-office-6.jpg

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_fr0ZoeNIXNo/TKd6AxCJTxI/AAAAAAAAAGE/UwObUZLo6mo/s800/for-office-7.jpg

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_fr0ZoeNIXNo/TKfLyZzCghI/AAAAAAAAAGc/g9tnLTew8uQ/s720/birdbath6.jpg
If I copy and paste one of them into a browser window, I see a forbidden error from google (meaning I don't have permission to view those photos). If you're seeing them at times, it's probably because you're logged into your google account (whereas nobody else can see them because they're not viewable by the public using those links). IOW, it appears to be a permissions issue.

P.S.

A search of the Picasa pages seems to indicate that hot linking is not supported by Picasa Albums (although many users found "work arounds" to that problem). Here's one thread discussing it (and if you scroll down, you'll see a response from a google employee about it from December 2009):

However, some of their docs seem to imply that it might be supported now. See here:

But, if the album is set to Sign in Required, you'll have issues (which may be why you can see them sometimes, but not others, depending on if you're logged into your account there or not). So, you may need to set your albums so that they're "public on the web":

Thanks Jim, my albums are not set to "sign in required", but I will go through them again to make sure. I will also try viewable to "public on the web" if the problem persists.
