However using the Android Forum app on my Galaxy S4, I can upload a photo from my Google photos account and post it to that forum.
It has the same looking interface that Tapatalk shows, but Tapatalk says 'can not open image'
So can you fix Tapatalk?

Tapatalk can download and work with Amazon Photos.

Hi
The issue is caused by Android Forum disabling Tapatalk plugin.
Unless they re-install Tapatalk plugin, this issue can not be resolved on our end.
Would you pls. contact the AF forum admin to let them know that you still want to access the forum on Tapatalk? Requests from members are often attended to more quickly.

Hi, let me restate more clearly.
I want to post an image to the wooden boat forum using tapatalk and my google photos account.
I can use Amazon photos and it works.
I can not use Google Photos, I get an error that says 'cannot open image', meaning it errors very quickly in the process of obtaining the image.

So I went looking and found by chance the Android forum app they wrote. Using that app, I can post a google photo into their forum, it works fine.
So I have proof google photos can be posted into a web forum.
So I want to have Tapatalk fixed so it can post google photos to wooden boat forum.

Aha...Sorry I didn't know you meant for a different forum as there was no mentioning of wooden boat forum in the first post.
You see the cause of an issue may be different from forum to forum due to the different Tapatalk plugin status on forums.
In the wooden boat forum's case, the cause of the issue is similar to Android Forum. Wooden Boat forum has an extremely outdated Tapatalk vbulletin plugin. We are at vb40_5.6.14, but the froum runs on vb40_3.1.4. It's more than 5 years old.
Try using Tapatalk to post on any of the following forums, they are all on the latest Tapatalk vbulletin plugin, you should be able to make the google account image post there.

2. imore
3. android central

I just used my phone, and tapatalk had an update, so I updated.
Went to post a test image, and the option to choose Amazon prime photos and Google Photos is gone?
No, I found, click the 3 dots in corner, then click system gallery and the selection for google and amazon appear

Another very useful feature, if I can ever get to use those photo services again, would be to use folders in Amazon or google photos, rather than scrolling a huge photo list.
Amazon prime photos shows 2 choices, photos or family vault. But neither Amazon or google in tapatalk ever show album lists I have made.

Will add this to the feature request list.

I will like that a lot, how much easier it will make it to use tapatalk for posting images. Consider now that in every post, if you post multiple images and have a few thousand photos to scroll through, it just makes the effort logarithmic in scale. Plus finding the desired image is just too hard.
