How to add photos from Flickr into a post
« on: August 30, 2013, 09:31:18 PM »
I am having an issue uploading photos to the website. Are there any tech savvy folks out there who can give easy to follow directions on how to do this. I have created a Flick'r account on Yahoo and upload a couple photos there. Eventually, I would like to be able to see the actual photo in a post on the site, and not a link to my photo. I find the "share" button on my Flick'r photo but cannot get it to appear when I select the 'Insert Image' option. I'm sure I'm making a simple mistake but I can't identify it.

Get to the actual picture in Flickr.
Click that Share button at the bottom, and switch it to Grab the HTML/BBCode
Copy that
Paste in your topic
It will look something like this:
Code: [Select]

[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/62083896@N00/9623222573/]shirt1a-front[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/62083896@N00/]mindiemo[/url], on Flickr
The only part you NEED is the img tags and what's in between them
Code: [Select]
[img]http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5323/9623222573_215e3bf2ec.jpg[/img]So you can strip out the other stuff if you want, or leave it if you want it to link back to your Flickr account

Make sure your pictures are public on Flickr or they won't appear for us. :)

Hope this helps!
