Picasaweb Blocked?

Please help. I cannot post images reliably.

I have searched google and this thread for possible glitch with picasaweb.com, but picasaweb pulls too many results from existing posts using picasaweb.

I have read the sticky and the very comprehensive offline manuals and ensured my images are the correct size and viewable from any browser. I have also ensured the images are public instead of private by link.

Picasaweb only allows https links. Is this a problem?
Has anyone successfully used picasaweb for sharing pictures?

Example attached:

Strange. Are you using the "Link to this photo" links to the right of the photo?
Is it an https address? If not, how did you get picasaweb to show you a plan http link (my album is public).

Proof I am not a total goof:

I had trouble with Picasa web before to. I solved it by using photobucket.

At work I cannot see photobucket pics. Our system blocks them. I can see those same pics at home.

italy4nra - This is the URL you used in post 5:
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/z1qNJnipEXX8pLBqjSgDX4cSX6npWbRDrNEpVZSkti4?feat=directlink

As you can see, that isn't an image link (images need to end in jpg/bmp/gif, etc.). At least it's not one that would be understood to be an image by our system.

I think bigfatdave just picked an image at random from the site. Have you uploaded some images to picasaweb? If so, where can I see them? IOW, what would I search on?
