Flickr is Getting a Major Makeover

    Here's the equivalent in Firefox. There's no shortcut to copy the image URL. You just have to highlight the text and do Ctrl+C to copy it.

    And here it is working.

    Roy that is so frustrating because I can't see how you get that text beneath the picture to copy. I have just got to work it out for myself. I tried using Chrome but could not do it there either. It is obviously me being dumb.

    Aah, I have found a workaround at last. :thumbs:

    And again here! I found that a right click on the picture brings up an options list, one of which is View Image Info. From that you can copy the one that looks like a url using straight Copy and then you have it. I use Ditto as my extended copy gizmo and it gives a loud ring when it picks up a copy. From there you can insert it into the Urban forum in the usual way. Thanks Roy Read for your help.

    Oh dear, I have decided to revive my old Flickr account which had less than a dozen pictures on it. I found my password and signed in.

    Then I thought I would link to one of my pictures, which I had been able to do before. Now it doesn't work. An internet search for how to do this revealed lots of others asking the same question, with no satisfactory reply. I understand that Flickr doesn't want to allow linking to pictures without a link back to the Flickr site. I would love to comply with their rules, but they omit to say how to do this. No wonder there are hordes of people transferring to Ipernity.

    That's been mentioned - just copy the normal link and remove the link bit. It's apparently harder to do that on ipernity from what people are saying here.

    Something I need to know still. :confused::hmm:

    I solved the problem on Ipernity but not yet on Flickr.

    You're copying the Iframe code for an embedded player for your stream (which this forum doesn't support) - try BB code instead (it has a pin icon)

    I couldn't find a pin icon but the BBcode was there for the taking. I had a few problems getting to scroll down to choose the size I wanted but thanks Cybertect for your help.

    VP - sorry I edited my post after you liked it. That image of the fat man is now in my competition entry. Or maybe you liked the big bird image.

    Here's how to post an image from Flickr.

    Here's what you need to do if you want to remove the links from the Flickr BB code (probably breaking their terms). I've had to replace the square brackets with curly brackets otherwise this code would show the image above.

    {url=https://flic.kr/p/nfGH5m}
    {img}https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2927/13949865728_dbc54482ce_z.jpg{/img}

    {url=https://flic.kr/p/nfGH5m}St Newlyn East Church{/url} by{url=https://www.flickr.com/people/64639998@N00/}RoyReed
    {/url}, on Flickr


    If you remove everything in italic you'll remove the links. The bit that displays the image is the bit in bold: this bit {img}url{/img}.

    Cheers Roy, I am glad to be able to post the pictures so am quite happy to let Flickr have their way with their rules.

    I quite like the new flickr layout but if it is making it hard to share photographs perhaps I will look again at www.pbase.com again.

    Once you know what to do (they do seem to have hidden it quite well - until you've worked out what the icons mean) it's actually very easy.

    Yes of course it is, especially when you know the answer. That example from Roy Read is very clear, but if you have previously been finding out how Ipernity does the same thing then it is not so simple because you expect some similarities. People talking about "the pin icon" did not not help and that particular phrase still baffles me even though I have worked out the answer.

    Weltweit I have accounts with pbase, photobucket, ipernity and flickr. My favourite is pbase, but they are quite expensive especially if you have a lot of photos on their site. Photobucket I think is a bit cheaper but they seem to have problems with rotated images. if you have vertical images they sometimes orientate themselves the wrong way. You can rotate them but sometimes they revert to the original when posted on a bulletin board. Perhaps I should delete a lot of my old pbase photos and save some money.

    Can people not look back 1 or 2 pages? There's at least 2 different ways of putting pictures up without linking back on the last few pages.

    mwgdrwg THIS IS WHAT WE DO IN THE F.B.I.!

    My way is simpler, with less clicks.

    01) Click "More Actions" (the three dots next to share)
    02) Click "Download / All Sizes"
    03) Right-click, copy shortcut on the size you want.

    For me it's one click plus ctrl+v to get a BB code link from a photo page

    I don't want the bb code, I want the image's plain URL.

    Ignore me, you can still do it in 3 clicks :)

    01) Click "Download this photo" (arrow pointing down)
    02) Click "View all sizes"
    03) Right-click, copy shortcut on the size you want.
