Image hosting with Google Photos (

i recently saw a lot of objects, which have a Google Photos URL, starting with, in their image tag.

The changesets all mention an OpenPoiMap link in the comment. Is OpenPoiMap preferring to add Google-hosted images?

Another problem which arises while using URLs with is that this a shorturl. And shorturls shall not be used in OSM: Key:website - OpenStreetMap Wiki. The page explictely lists as bad example.

If hosting images with Google Photos and linking from OSM to it is okay, shall we at least remove the shorturl and save the full URL?
