    Is there something bthat needs set to allow this on vB or on Google as I can view the file no problem via the browser but not by insert image feature and add link

    Thanks In Advance

    Click the Insert Image icon in the editor toolbar and enter the Google Image URL into the URL box.

        Don't know about Link Content type. The system will try to scrape the information from the page as an anonymous user and it really depends on what is returned by the URL. The Link content type isn't really meant for images alone.

        I use Google services as little as possible and don't use them for images at all so can't test that.

          I do not use google either.

          This is the link supplied by the user which i assume is generated by Google as a share link, a browser akes you straight there

          However the content entry box does not like this URL at all

                Look at the source for that page, it is a mass of compressed javascript code. Probably why it can't pull the image with the link tag. If this is important, you can create an improvement request in the bug tracker.
