I'm debating uploading some of family tree pictures to Google Photos.  It gives you the ability to share albums, provide links to individual photos, and other options.

Is there a way I can link the photos from Google Photos into my GenoPro file?  Or do they all have to be on my computer?

I tried pasting the link Google Photos gave me into the Picture Location field.  Do I need to change it somehow so it knows to look on the Internet vs my hard drive?

Pictures can be hosted on the web and and accessed via http/https.  Unfortunately the link provided by Google Photos results in a web page in which the image is displayed and not a link to the image itself.

There are work-arounds for this, see for example https://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/92777/how-to-get-the-direct-link-to-an-image-in-my-google-photos/137631#137631

The Chrome Extension mentioned there Google Photos Direct Link also seems to work.

Can I use the direct links provided by Google Photos, or do I need to make any changes to the links for them to work properly in GenoPro?
Thanks in advance!

To create a hyerlink on an indivdual, right-click on the indivdual, and select New Hyprlink. You can choose to hyprlink the indivdual to an existing Genopro.

In this example, we used a hyprlink on Jana so that she would be "copied" to the  Genopro in which we can develop.
