It seems Picasa no longer provides image links for use in forums boards. Is there some other way to do this, possibly through Google+? It would be pretty surprising if they just removed the functionality entirely. (Also, it's preventing me from participating in this month's assignment, since I use Picasa for my online photo hosting.)

EDIT: If you create an album in Picasa (or directly in Google+), it is not shared by default to "Anyone with a link". Only albums shared to "Anyone with a link" will have "Link to this album" links, and "Link to this photo" links for the individual photos. Source.

Still working for me, that's one I uploaded to Picasa for use on another forum moments ago.

Right click on the uploaded image and select "copy image URL"

jkstacey, there used to be more advanced options to the right of the photo that let you choose the size of the embedded image. The "copy image URL" will only let me use the small image that Picasa shows before you zoom in.

popo, I've looked through some of my old albums, and they still have the "Link to this photo" link. It's just the last few that I've uploaded that don't have it, and those are precisely the ones that I've shared via Google+ with other people. Do you have the "Link to this photo" link available on any album that you've shared in Google+? Or in an album that you uploaded in Google+ (rather than directly in Picasa)?

EDIT: Solved. I'll put the solution in the initial post for anyone else who gets confused about this.
