To do this from Flickr is a PITA as they don’t (so far as I recall) provide a direct link to the file. I hunted around in the source code to find the address to that small version of the pic itself.


I prefer Postimage as they give a bunch of links to suit various purposes when you upload a pic. Just copy the “direct” link







... and paste that in the window when you click on the foc-u “Insert image” button.

I could change my opinion, but then we'd both be wrong.

On FLICKR you need to click on the share button. A box should pop up. Select BBCODE and then select the size - for posting on forums I use the medium size as large is too large.

Yes, me too. The second of those two pictures was posted with Postimage and it was a lot easier than Flickr.

Well now Postimage has made a nuisance of themselves: they changed the address slightly in April so all earlier links are now pointing to the wrong place. Bastards!
(Shouldn’t moan really since it’s a free service, but even so…)
Anyway .org in any old link should now be .cc and it’ll work again.

Why do they have to keep foccing around with things, don't they realise how bloody annoying it is?
