Linking images on Flickr to BM

Recommended Posts

Recently switched to Flickr having lost patience with Photobucket but I can't seem to post images, just links to those images.  See what I mean below.  Any help out there?

It's easier than that.

 

Find the photo you wish to post in your Flickr Photostream then copy/paste the URL from the address bar of the browser.

No problems here - I just followed the link from your first post, copied the URL from the resulting address bar, pasted it into my post, and it turned into a picture, as if by magic! ^_^  Give it a go :)

Tried this and all I get is that there is no image at the requested location, any ideas?

 

Neil,

 

I just went to my 'new' Flickr account and copied my image just by using the 'right click - copy' function on my mouse.

Then I went back to BM, 'right clicked - paste' and presto - another larger image appeared as per my post above.

 

I'm still not convinced I know what I'm doing, however this seemed to work for me.

Cheers... Dave.

Hi all,

I'm looking your specific  blow by blow instructions for inserting images from Flickr. I am getting out of the PB farcical world! I have tried the various instructions above all I can do is paste a link and not embed an image :(. RabbitLeader and Intruder503's process allows access to all to all your Flickr albums :(.

 

Thanks!

 

Martin

Get a Flickr account. Use the cloud with a up-pointing arrow icon to download pictures.

When downloaded, go to Photostream and pick a picture that you want to post.

Left click on the picture, then click on the little right-pointing arrow icon.

In the pop-up window, choose " EMBED ". Then choose a size, if needed.

Copy the blue highlighted line of code.

Go back to Britmodeller and paste it in the Reply box.

Yer done!

All done but ...... if you then click on the image you can access my photos. How do you stop that?  See

There are a couple of ways to do that.

 

When you past in the URL from the 'share' and then 'BBcode' option and then past that in to the forum you can edit it and remove the bits of BBCode to the left and right of the IMG and /IMG  tags.

 

Alternatively, you can go back in to your post after you have created it, edit it, and hover over the picture then press 'CTRL' on the keyboard and right click on the mouse and select 'remove link' from the menu.

 

Hope this helps

 

Karl

BTW Flickr requires the images to link back to them: https://www.flickr.com/help/guidelines

 

Link back to Flickr when you post your Flickr content elsewhere.

Flickr makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to other web sites. Pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr. This provides a way to get more information about the content and the photographer.

What they really mean is "to get more page impressions to convince our advertisers we're worth paying lots of money to" :innocent:

A quick question about Flickr.

This is probably a stupid question..my apologies if I've posted it in the wrong place; mods please feel free to move/ delete it if I have, or I'll hide it and post in the right place.

 

Privacy setttings: 

All of my photographs are set to 'private'. In e.g. the app they have the 'padlock' symbol on them in the Photostream.

 

If I make just one photo 'Public', so that I can have it in a thread; if people click on that photo,  can they then go and look at all the photographs in my Photostream?

 

Even I've set them all as private? Is the one I made 'public' kind of a 'door in'?

 

I prefer to upload all I take at a certain time in batches, then edit them, keeping them marked  'private' until I'm happy that they're ready for the thread.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice

Having had a quick play with changing some of my pics from Photo-kicked the-bucket, I have discovered that the photo's have to be Public, or they won't show.

There is also a safety level- safe, moderate, or restricted (something to do with how "naughty" the pics are I presume) - so I changed mine to safe.

 

Tony, I wouldn't have thought anyone would be able to click-through from a "public" pic to see any "private" pics - defeats the point otherwise.

 

Edit: Just found that if you click "You" and select Organize in Flickr you can select what photo's you want to change privacy settings for in bulk, rather than one at a time. You can also change other settings as well.

Just testing my photo post from Flickr. Just discovered how easy it is to copy and paste from the address bar above the picture in Flickr.  I think the image size is too big.

It looks OK to me, I don't think you can alter the image size when you use that method to download..

I've just downloaded the Flickr app onto my IPad and tried to post an image onto BM, using said IPad. No joy! anyone here got any how-to hints?

 

I need this in case I'm stuck somewhere with just my IPad, like I was last year during the evac.

I gave up trying to embed photos from Flickr using an ipad or similar.  Can't grab the code properly.  The app is usefull fro uploading my photos from my phone but I have to use a PC or laptop when embedding to a site like this.

 

size wise i've always found 1024 width is a good size for pictures and Flickr gives you that option if you use the share / embed function.  I don't know if you can change the size if you copy from the address bar.
