Having read the instructions of how to put images from ones Flickr page into a post on this forum, i discovered it doesn't work like that anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions on how i might be able to do this?

Thank

Yes, it seems that you can now only post a link which takes you to the image on the Flickr page itself. The beauty of the system, as it was, is that you could show forum members various photos in your Flickr account which were not shared with the public.

If you do that now, all of your non-public photos become available.

If, on the other hand, you link to a public photo, then all of your public photos become available.

Speaking for myself, I won't be linking to Flickr anymore.

Existing links, such as mine in the Fred Fowle topic, are not affected.

Good info John, sounds dodgy, just deleted my Flckr account, thanks for the heads up.

I decided to go back to Flickr and take another look. The way we were able to link to Flickr images can still be done, but only by Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. It's possible, however, to show particular Flickr images, but only by posting links like those below:

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7714/17252246162_3277cde41f_c.jpg

Obviously, you have to click on each link, so it's not particularly useful. Therefore, I think it's probably time to edit or remove reference to Flickr in the Photo Forum.

John, if you surround those links with [ img][/ img] tags (remove the spaces) it would embed the image into the post, its how I've always posted images from Flickr and never had any problems.

For example:

Posted as

[img]https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5610/15479854606_db487d81a1_o.jpg[/img]

I use Flickr for everything, as you can see, I've got well over 1500 photos on there and over 350,000 views, https://www.flickr.com/photos/jpeters8889/sets and I've never had any problems with it, and for me, it really is the best way for sharing my photos for the world to see.

Thanks, Jamie. I was hoping to be contradicted. :)
