Kathy Clulow has written an excellent follow-up article to my Activerain and Google+: Posting Tips  If you're on Google+ (and if you're not, why not?) photos are very important as G+ is a visual platform.  Now, not only do you know how to get the best photo to match your post, you can go back and edit past Google+ posts to get the right photo in place.

Google Plus Tip - Changing The Photos In The Links On Your Old Posts

 Previously I mentioned that you could change the photo it the link of a G+ post to one of yours instead of the AR Logo by hovering over the logo and using the arrow keys that show up to select the picture you want.

But What About Your old Posts

I was asked if you could change the picture in the link section at the bottom of a Google Plus Post after you had posted it so I asked Barrie to test it for me and he said Yes You Can but he added a word of caution which you will find at the end of this post




Well It turns out you can edit the picture out by editing the post. Click on the arrow key (highlighted in yellow) in the upper right hand corner of the post and then the edit link in the drop down.


This will open the edit screen for the post. By placing your cursor over the yellow highlighted area you can delete all the information related to the link. In this case the logo and the description.


 After removing the Logo etc a link button appears that allows you to add the link back into the post


You can then add your link back in by clicking on the link button and posting the link again.

Just remember to use the arrow keys at the top of the picture to
select the picture you want before resaving the post.



While the comments to the original post remain your post will be marked as edited and will appear at the top of your stream so you might not want to do them all at once or even do them at all
