I've been posting photos in posts for a very, very long time here with no issue. I'm talking Internet photos (copy image and paste into post) or using photo bucket if I ever want to post a personal one. I'm using the method everyone uses that should work.

Now as of two weeks ago, it doesn't seem to work. I can copy and paste and see the photo initially but then when I hit submit to post the post, it disappears once the post is posted. I've tried using the text buttons too, and it does the same thing.

Anyone have any idea what could be going on? I use a MacBook Pro laptop with Safari. Is there a setting on my computer that is causing this?

I know someone else who was having issues a couple weeks ago too but their problem has since resolved itself.

I know that photos on Pininterest just do not show up here for me. None. (Mac with Safari or Firefox, depending on machine.)

I have the same issue. For me, it's just been luck of the draw. Sometimes I can get them to work, and sometimes I can't. Sometimes it just disappears, or it'll say "Birthday image" in writing instead of the photo or something like that. I also have a Mac. It's frustrating. I'd love to know the answer too.

Thank you! At least I'm not the only one!
