Yeah it had me flummoxed for ten minutes last night until I found the "Download/All Sizes." trick posted by wilsonstott above.

Lets see if it works the new way:

<iframe src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/zorki_2007/12412176313/player/" width="640" height="427" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

[IMG]<iframe src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/zorki_2007/12412176313/player/" width="640" height="427" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>[/IMG]

nope it doesn't


again trying:

I can't select any BBcode anymore and the iframe code doesn't work
selecting doesn't give you any ...jpg source either....

lets try this

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3711/...29b67515_c.jpg

each time they change something at flickr they get things working worse and looking more and more ugly

Okay, I found out how

Went to the Help Forum on Flickr to find out *** happened, and found out about the push pin. It's supposed to bring up a box that says something about the BB Code when you hover over it, but on my browser (Google Chrome) it doesn't. So I wasn't going to start pushing things that I had no idea what they were going to do.

I'm about to order a new computer system anyway, so maybe Flickr will make more sense running the latest version of Explorer. I saw some screens with all kinds of information while looking for other issues last night, and have no idea of where they are on the latest Flickr update. I did read how it's all supposed to run so much faster now, but I'm having issues with slow page loads, and some photos that never finish loading.

And I'm paying for this kind of service?

Posting Image from Flickr Using a Mac

Finally figured this out using current Flickr interface as of today:

1. Go into Flickr and open your photostream.
2. Select desired image.
3. On far lower right click on the three dots in a line (...) and select "View all sizes" from the drop down.
4. New screen opens, pick the size you want (1024 x 680 works well, 640 x 425 shown).
5. On Mac, hold down the control key and click on image. Select "Copy Image Address."
6. Go to RFF and open a new reply.
7. Place cursor at desired location
8. Click on color "Insert Image" icon in second row above. New dialog box pops up.
9. Copy the URL using command-v. The URL will be inserted and MUST end with ".jpg" at the end (no quotes). Click OK. Image URL is inserted at the cursor location between the tags.
10. When done writing reply, click on the Submit Reply button at bottom.
11. Thread should open with your post at the top and your image clearly visible according to the size you picked.

Hope this helps. I imagine this translates to a PC using the analogous mouse and keyboard operations.

Slightly different
This with a Mac and Safari, so may not be universal.

Right click on photo in your photostream,
that opens it in that view stream thingy, (not too technical I hope)
Right click and choose size from the list that opens,
the photo opens in a new window at that size so useful preview,
right click again, copy image address,
paste that in the box that opens when you click on the "mountain" yellow box in the reply window on RFF after deleting the http:// that appears in the box, otherwise you get that twice.

As every post in which I place a picture contains a link to my Flickr account does that not count ?
I had no idea I was so techy nor have I, and I suspect I may not be alone, noted that in the terms of use, can I expect a knock on the door?

I unreservedly withdraw any instructions I may have posted that may lead to a breach of terms of service.

BTW where did I read that a software vendor attached a line in the click to accept section, that almost no one reads, saying you accepted that you had sold your immortal soul to the company? No one complained.

Yes... when the "insert image icon" is there. These days quite often it's not.

This will happen when you don't specify the file to be uploaded.

@ Walter: I usually go to the gallery, select "my photos", right click on the photo which interest me, select the options copy photo address, than go to the thread where I want to post the photo and click the small icon with a mountain in it (7th from the left side) and when the window opens I past the adress right clicking again, finally click ok and it is done.

Hope it helps you, ciao

Problems posting pictures from Flickr on RFF

For many moons I've been posting pictures from Flickr to RFF using the Flickr BBCode. Since a few weeks, however, this method results in a string of unwanted code appearing underneath my pictures. Inside RFF you can't get rid of this string. Grateful for any advice how to avoid this problem. Many thanks, P

in flickr click on "view all sizes" of the photo, chose the size you want, right click on the image, choose "copy image URL", click on the "insert image" tab when posting, paste the copied URL, works for me.

You can get rid of it. Just delete it from the HTML. Quote my post so you can see what I did.

First, paste your BBCode into something like Notepad, or a word processor. On the first line, get rid of the first bits of info within the brackets (including the brackets), so that the code starts with [/img]https:..., which is the second set of brackets.

After the ending [/img], delete the code between it and the title.

After the title, delete the code until you reach the word "by".

This should clean up the extraneous code appearing with your photos. Copy this shortened version, then paste into RFF. This method is especially useful when doing multiple photos.

Doing it this way won't let you link back to your image on flickr. Its a violation of their terms of use. But more importantly it won't get you all those views and faves that people go nuts for

If you click on the photo it takes you right to the photo on flickr.

views & faves ... we want more, More, MORE ...

I also just paste the BBC code to the reply and then just delete the unnecessary part. It is relatively fast with rather few clicks.

Sure you can. Just edit your post and delete it after the fact. It's a kludge, but it works.

you are right. Actually I like views and favs, don't want to violate terms and clicking on the image does not lead me to flickr as John says, at least it doesn't for me.
It's just that, when I tried, the BCode hadn't worked for me and this is the only work around, and an easy one, that I had found and incidentally it does what the OP asked for

let me try now if the BBCode works:

oh, it works, and as mentioned, I don't mind the links provided, on the contrary

Hello
After much research I still can't find a way to upload images from my iphone photo library.
My files are too big so I use a resizer app which lowers quality drastically at the required 500x500. Plus i'm not very computer literate.
Any advice most welcome!

Here's a visual guide:

1. select the image in Flickr and click on the "Share Photo" icon at lower right (the curved arrow icon)

2. Select HTML and Flickr image size as shown, then copy all of the highlighted code
https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/302/18...7deddc04_o.jpg

3. Paste the code into a text editor then select the image address which appears after the src=" (you can see it highlighted here in blue) and copy it.
https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/395/18...17e711b3_o.jpg


4. Paste this into the "add image" dialog box in the RFF thread
https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/357/18...46281329_o.jpg and click OK


5. It should look like this:
https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/328/18...bf5d3464_o.jpg
then post quick reply

Cheers,

Cheers,
There is a less convoluted way of doing this, depending on your browser. Go to "view all sizes". Choose the image size that you want. Right click on the image. In Google chrome, select "copy image url". In IE, select "copy". This will copy the image url. I think that Firefox works the same as Chrome. Then follow the rest of the instructions above.

For those of you trying to do this on an iPad, you may have noticed since the last Flickr change that you can't easily copy the highlighted BBCode using Safari or Chrome browsers. What works for me was to get the Puffin browser, which runs a virtualized desktop browser via a remote server, giving me now the ability to navigate these embedded screens much easier. I still browse using Safari, but switch to Puffin when needing to copy or paste some code.

On my iphone (which is my only device) I'm getting this page. ( see attachment)
The 'copy link' button seems to activate when pressed but will not paste onto the message.
Am I going the right way about this?
Thank you

Uploading images to post's.

It has been a while since I've included an image on a thread and the Flickr account has long gone.
What is there best way to insert an image into a thread?

Thanks,

Steve.

If itis on your website, right click the photo on your site, choose "Copy Image Location" and then paste it into RFF's image dialogue box that comes up when you push the image button when writing a post.

You need a place to host the images. Can then grab the URL code of the image and click on the forum image insert link to insert the URL code.

Homestead has a free site if you stick with 3 pages and don't mind the ad's. More than 3 and it's $99.00 a year.

Create two images. Small one on your website page and larger one to link to for viewing and for posting.
