I am using CodePen.IO, and the images not loading

I am using the Mac photos app. I have to download them to google photos to get the image address, and when I paste the address down into Codepen, the image does not load.

You can’t hotlink images from Google Photos - you can get a sharing link, but that is not a direct link to an image. It’s not an image hosting service, it’s an application to organise your photos, same as the Mac photos app. If you need to host your images somewhere they’re available publicly, you need to use an image hosting service. Google Drive does allow this iirc - you can make a publicly accessible folder
