    Interesting.
    Displays fine on Firefox & Chrome when fully logged out of Google (& the forum).
    Doesn't show on Edge (Not that I, or possibly anyone, uses Edge, so my installation isn't set up in any way.)

    I presume its not meant to be a black and white "no entry" sign using Google on an Android phone

    I had a problem a while back with a stalker (BB)who registered on every Forum I used (even here) and who reported me constantly to Photobucket for every image I uploaded. There was an author who was in a conversation with me on the forum and I scanned some of his book pages and uploaded them to make a point and this stalker reported that to photobucket and got them taken down as copyright infringement! Short story is BB was such a tool I decided to switch from Photobucket to another host and moved everything over. I was not caught out by the Photobucket ransom demands and thus would like to thank BB for saving me from that upheaval!
     
  6. Still doesn't work for me on Firefox 68.0.2 (64 bits), nor on IE (I won't type the version number, which is over 10 digits long!). Maybe something to do with my security settings...

    Yep.
    Something to do with Java & how Google displays your albums to you in their proprietary viewer.
    There's some fiddly workarounds, but they do look a pain in the arse.

    Guess we'd better start pushing image resizing more forcefully.

    1.84mb:
    original.jpg

    335kb:
    Shrunk.jpg

    Difference for day-to-day use: negligible. (Other than the shrunk file loading much faster & putting less stress on Otto's storage & server)

    I see that on my Macbook running Safari too . . .

    However, von Poop's last two images show quite happily. :D
