Is anybody here familiar with Flickr? I have some photos posted from like 6 months ago that I was going to post here, but I can't seem to get a raw URL  :(

If I right-click the photo, I don't get my usual list of options because it's copyrighted or something.

If any of you can guide me through this, I'd be extremely grateful, and happy to share my museum photos with you all  :) And I'm using Firefox, if that makes a difference.

There are two ways:

1) Click the 'Share' button above your image. Choose the 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' option from the drop down menu, select the size at which you'd like your image displayed, then tick the 'BBCode' (Bulletin board) box. The right code will appear which you can copy and paste.

This option will link you directly back to your Flickr album once you click on the image, as in the example above. It's quite a good way of sourcing images back to their owners and helps promote Flickr as a community, etc.


2) Click the 'Actions' button above your image, then select 'View all sizes' from the drop down menu. Select the size at which you'd like to post you image, then simply right click for the image URL as standard. It should appear in this case. Enclose it within the image code as usual. This option of course does not link back to the album but posts the image in the usual manner.



ETA: I've just realised that you can also choose to 'view all sizes' from right-clicking your image without choosing from the 'Actions' button if you prefer.

Urgh, as some of you know all photos I post here are on facebook. I remember that every now and then I suggested using fb as an image hoster just like e.g. photobucket because it was always fine and you'll never get any bandwidth problems there. I think I will refrain from suggesting it any further without reservations because yesterday fb made some changes to the way albums are displayed...
And while I'm glad that my individually posted pictures are still visible here, apparently, my links for the external view of entire albums don't work anymore (links like I've posted e.g. here on DTF v.1). :'( There used to be a url to be used as an external link for non-fb members at the bottom of each album but this doesn't appear anymore. I hope things like this won't happen to the individual photos I've posted or all of them will disappear here (gosh, I've uploaded more than 9600 photos there... :o ). If the photos disappear, eventually, I'll find another way but for the moment I'd like to suggest being cautious with fb as an image host... :-\

Edit: The links to the albums do work when I'm logged in at fb (and don't work anymore as soon as I log off) but that's definitely not what I wanted, make my albums only available to fb members. Grrr.

Edit again 2012-10-08: For the moment, I take everything back... it all seems to work again. :) Well, let's see for how long. ???

Hi! On this forum, the process of posting images is the latter. You can upload your images someplace - Photobucket, Imageshack, Facebook, etc. Once it's uploaded, all you have to do is copy its address, which is generally done by right-clicking it and selecting "Copy Image Location", and then paste it into your post. Then, highlight the entire address and click the "Insert Image" button, which resembles a small portrait. This will add image tags to the address - "[img]" before and "[/img"] after. Alternatively, you can type the tags yourself, but that generally takes longer. Hope that clears things up!

Welcome Styracosaur, all is explained in our FAQ section, so I've merged your topic with our existing 'posting images' thread.   C:-)

Could you be a little more specific? What sort of error message are you getting?

When it comes to the internet, ipads are useful for browsing, but not much else. When it comes to posting, I might use a tablet for something short, but when it comes to longer posts, and especially when posting images, I always open up my laptop. It will save you a lot of bother if you log onto a proper computer.

Alternatively, you could upload pictures to a public facebook album with the facebook app.

I am not getting an error message. I just got an ImageShack account, so this problem May or may not be solved. I still need to upload the images to ImageShack and then to here in my post.

The forum has a thread that you can read as a tutorial for posting images, but basically you need a host site to place your images on and then link to.


Here is the tutorial link

Sounds like it might be an issue with the image hosting site. What are you using to host the files?

Try to post an image in this thread and one of the moderators will try to work out what the problem is :)

That's an animated gif image, not a video. I don't think the forum software allows videos in signatures.
