Google photo links don't convert to images

I am creating an instructable (not my first) and I drop a link such as into it but it isn't converted to the image, in the preview it remains as a link.

Does the image only display on publishing or is it something I am doing wrong or is this a bug?

You need to upload your photos to the site to use them.

If you're following the "how to embed photos" instructable*, the site has been updated a number of times since that was written (4 1/2 years ago!), and I don't think that works any more.

Thanks for the response. But I thought by uploading, it just includes the images at the top of a step, not in the body of the step. I will experiment.

Possibly not a good idea to link to a redundant page ;o)
