    Default Posting Pictures from Photo Sharing Sites (A visual guide)

    Flickr has been updated as of July 2010. Please use the guide here: Posting Photos from Flickr [July 2010 Update]

    Visual Guides now available for:
    Flickr (this post)
    Zooomr
    PicasaWeb
    Webshots

    In case you're new to the forums or new to Flickr and you want to see how to post pictures using Flickr, here's a visual tutorial to try to clear up the steps.

    1. Upload the photo that you want to use to Flickr and go to your Flickr page.



    2. Click on the photo that you want to post in the forums and click on the "All Sizes" button.



    3. Select either the small or medium size picture, then look for the text box that's under your picture. You see the text in box 1? Copy that text.



    4. Come back to the forum and start a new thread or go to the thread that you want to post in. Paste the text from your Flickr page into your post and then submit your post or preview it and then submit it (combined into 1 step here since I can only do 4 pictures per post).

    I didnt realise we could use HTML in posts. i have been using the good old (img) (url) tags,

    This is going to be making so much easier nicole, thanks! especially for the visual guide. So much easier to follow that words.

    lol yeah, I think we've finally got the html turned on in all the forums. It took a while since some of them slipped by . Glad the visual guide was helpful. I do know how text directions can be confusing... especially when trying to explain which one is the html if someone isn't familiar with it.
