Can't add image URLs. I get a dialog that says "Something went wrong. Please try again or contact your administrator". I tried again. Now I am contacting my @admin

It is working for me @stunta. I checked and there is no server errors either. That message can come up if the page is very old, you lose your internet connection, etc. Can you please try again?

That is not an image link. It is a redirect.

And indeed generates the error you mention. A while back Google took away the ability to grab links from its image search due to a settlement with another company. So what used to work there, no longer does.

This is what the link goes to:

If you want to grab image URLs in google search, grab the link out of the preview pane that Google opens. Just right click and save the image link there.
