PostSubject: HOW TO post a picture from *NEW* Flickr   Sat Feb 04, 2012 8:23 pm

Remember when posting a picture hosted on Flickr, it says in their policy that you MUST link back to the flickr page when you post pictures elsewhere. While it is possible to post a picture without linking it back to the flickr page, doing it that way can get your flickr account closed. Flickr gets their revenue from traffic on their pages. This allows them to offer free hosting services to their members. So make sure to post your pictures correctly.


Here are the steps to show flickr pictures on forums easily. This works for all BBC based sites.

.click on the 'square with the arrow out' button below and to the right of the picture,


.click on 'grab the html/BBC code'


.check the BBC circle.


.click on the drop tab


.chose a size, 640 is a good size for posting on forums.


.click on text box, highlight and copy all the text in the box.


.paste the text into your message as is, do not use the Insert image or Insert Link buttons.
.post or send!



The code should look like this:
Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leopardessmoon/6794350321/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7023/6794350321_2edb885bff_z.jpg[/img][/url]
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leopardessmoon/6794350321/]Capt Goldhorn003[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/leopardessmoon/]leopardessmoon[/url], on Flickr
and this is the result;  if you left-click the picture it will take you to the flickr page so you can see more pictures. the links below the picture will also take you to the picture and to the persons main page!

The second url= line is the title and user name, you don't have to have that one. You can use just the first half if you like; it will look like this,

Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leopardessmoon/6794350321/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7023/6794350321_2edb885bff_z.jpg[/img][/url]


and this is the result; if you left-click the picture it will take you to the flickr page so you can see more pictures.




This is an example of the picture posted INCORRECTLY with out the link, notice that it doesn't have the URL part of the code;

Code:
[img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7023/6794350321_2edb885bff_z.jpg[/img]
and this is the result; notice that you can't click on it. It does not link back to the flickr page.
