Default My photos

I just noticed that all of my photos are not showing up (I'm talking about my old posts). All I'm seeing is a black square with and exclamation point in it. What happened ? Thanks.

I just realized that I had downloaded them from my google web account and I have since emptied that acct, could that be the problem?

Looking at some of your recent threads, the photos embedded were on Google's servers.

So, if you emptied that account as you indicated, the photos you linked to would no longer appear in your posts here.

Take this thread as one example:

You embedded this image:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-x...51.JPG-pic.jpg

That image is no longer valid, and Google is just displaying the black square with the exclamation point in it, as you've already noticed.

There is nothing we can do about it, since the images were loaded from the Google servers, and were never stored on our servers.
