My photos are not showing up when I put them elsewhere like in my forum groups
1
I copy the image link from photo and then put that in group and although I can see pics others cannot.
This has not always happened so I do not understand why it is now.
Also I saw somewhere that my storage seems empty and I should think something should be there considering how many albums I have.

Sheba, 
 
Good afternoon. You cannot use the URL to hotlink to one of your uploaded pictures in Google Photos. The service is not intended to be used in that way. Any links you copy/paste to your pictures are not guaranteed to remain static, and will most likely not work for other people. 
 
If you want to share your pictures or embed them elsewhere, you will have to use Google Drive or some other service. 
 
Regards, 
~ Greg

Hi thanks for reply
I have been using that for some time without problems until recently.
What is the point of having albums then .
I have so many there now and if I just wanted to view them myself I could have kept them in my photo file.
So now I don'''t know what to do as I can only move one pic at any time with my laptop.

You wrote: "What is the point of having albums then?"
Albums (with one or more photos) can be shared by using their shareable link. 
For example https://photos.app.goo.gl/ayykqY1U3Yk9qHRB7 is the short link to an album I made and shared some time ago. Anyone with the link can see the photos in the album, and I think that the link is (intended to be) stable. 

In your original post I thought (and maybe Greg did too) that you were talking about "embedded" links to see the photo on a site, which is a different use, and I understand is not supported by Google Photos.

was talking about embedded ones then as I used url to put them on sites which you say is not permitted
I do not need links the other way

I have a workaround that involves using Blogger.com. 
As Greg said, Google Photos is simply not intended as a photo hosting site ... except for Blogger! Blogger is Google's blogging site and you can embed Google Photos by simply clicking on Insert photo and From Google Album Archive (this gets photos from Google Photos albums) Any picture you choose will be embedded into that blog post for all to see once it is published.
Now ... when you view that blog post, you can right-click the image and copy image address, and that URL can be used to embed elsewhere. 
Not something I'd recommend if you need to do this a lot, but it works in a pinch.

I found this solution somewhere else, it seems that the pictures from the gallery can be used for astronomy.

When we create a shared album and photos from it, they are displayed on the page.

Here in this topic, I used the picture from Google Photos https://infomiasto.eu/forum/topic/zyciorys-cv-wymagany-w-rekrutacji-na-studia-po-co/ - if it is displayed it means that it is displayed and you need to choose a shared photo album from it.
