How to post photos using Flickr

Post by duggi »

Since there's been a lot of conversation surrounding photos since that horrible service got more horrible, I decided to make a post on how I post photos to mye28 using Flickr. It works very well...see the series of images below (which I used this method to post).

Thank you.

I prefer to leave the [url] tag in place though, so peeps can click through for a full resolution image.

Nice writeup! Might also be worth mentioning that the image sizes in the Medium range work best; gives good detail, but not so big that it causes viewing problems for people on on slower connections.

This is great documentation, but unfortunately, Flickr doesn't give the same options regarding URL name/type - it just gives you this:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/195464943 ... res/0R67P1

This of course doesn't work, as I have read the FAQ and the file name has to end with *.jpg or *.gif or some other picture file format - perhaps there is a permissions thing I am missing on either forum or Flickr, but I can't find it.

Would love to contribute photos

You must be clicking on the wrong choice in Flickr. This method has always worked for me:

OK - so here is the distinction - MUST be on Photostream tab NOT Camera Roll.
Camera Roll does NOT give BBCode option - Photostream DOES

HTH others
