    Default How to post images from Flickr

    Posting pic's using Flickr.

    To get a pic to show in a post you need to be signed into Flickr, then go to the picture you want to post.

    - Above that pic should be a button called "Share"

    - Click on "Grab the HTML/BBCode"

    - Select what size you want. (Hint do not use "original")

    - Select BBCode

    - Then you will see the code change similar to this

    {url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/drjekellsmadhouse/6028536517/}{img}http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6085/6028536517_65d3e7217e.jpg{/img}{/url}{url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/drjekellsmadhouse/6028536517/}Photo 00000031{/url} by {url=http://www.flickr.com/people/drjekellsmadhouse/}Dr Jekell{/url}, on Flickr
    - Select the block of code (when you click on it, it should automatically select it all for you)

    - Copy this into your post

    - Enjoy

    - Here is a photo for reference:

    It is important to resize your images, resize the image to no larger than 800 x 800 pixels.

    Due to Flickr changing how images are posted to forums on a regular basis I have posted the tutorial here & will change any other posts with it in them to link to here.

    I will do my best to keep it up to date.

    Default How to post images from Flickr

    Hi sorry to bother you but I can not seem to get the image to show, only a link to the image. Please could you point me in the right direction?

    Sorry to have troubled you but archimedes has been kind enough to sort this out.

    yesssss.. finally!

    Mods, please delete this pathetic attempt at posting pics if it clogs up the thread.
    I think I can just use this Imgur deal for now and post links.
    Thank you

    I tried Arch and to no avail. I think itís because Iím using this dang iPad and the apps of these photo sharing sites. S
    eems like thereís more options when using a Mac, or PC. Time to dust mine off I guess. Lol
    Thank you for your help Sir.

    Maybe try using a browser instead of the app.

    Even most mobile browsers will let you request the "desktop" site ....
