    I notice that some people are still getting confused about displaying pictures that are stored on other servers (eg. Flickr). What you have to do is to give this site some instructions about what you want it to do. Speaking slower or speaking louder won't make any difference because it can't hear you; what you need is markup.

    That means that, in among all your text, you include some phrases that the DPS server can recognise as instructions. In long-hand that would sound like "when you get here, get this picture from Flickr and make sure it links back to the original"; the markup codes are actually simpler once you get used to them.

    There are two kinds you can use. One is called BBCode and it places its instructions in [square] brackets. Every instruction needs an opening part, like [this] (which may include extra information), and a closing part, like [/this] (note the forward slash). Anything between that pair will be affected by the markup.

    The other is HTML, which is allowed in some parts of the site. HTML commands are enclosed in <angle brackets>. When you look at your picture on Flickr, choose the "All Sizes" button, select the size you want (medium - 500px on the longest edge - is preferred for sharing here) and copy and paste the HTML code from the bottom of the page.

    Example:

    To get this:

    From a Moving Car #10

    you can either use BBCode (I have used {} brackets here instead of square brackets so you see the markup, not the results):

    {url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/wulf/398548252/}{img}http://farm1.static.flickr.com/138/
    398548252_ffdbe70dfc_m.jpg{/img}{/url}

    or HTML:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/wulf/398548252/" title="Photo Sharing"><img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/138/398548252_ffdbe70dfc_m.jpg" width="240" height="159" alt="From a Moving Car #10" /></a>

    Hope that helps.

    Default When you don't have a pro account

    Hi all,

    I have reached the limit of my non pro account at flickr and was wondering what other ways there are to post to the DPS forum without using flickr.

    Also is this the correct location to post this thread?

    Cheers,

    The Mighty2006

    Hi TheMighty2006

    Not sure if you mean that you've reached the monthly limit at Flickr or you've reached 200 photos. If you've reached 200 photos, you can continue to upload photos, you will just be able to see the latest 200 in your stream. They'll still appear everywhere else.

    Now, if you want other places to post photos:

    Try Zooomr (after the 15th, they're currently upgrading).
    Or Photobucket (please remember to only upload pictures that are less than 600px on the largest size though, since photobucket doesn't easily resize)
    Or DeviantArt
    Or Picasa Web Album
    Or you can just upload attachments on the forums.

    Hopefully that's enough possibilites for you

    What?

    Ok, so I am trying this out to see if I can make it work correctly. Really appreciate the step by step instructions. Photo is of my dog, Sasha - always puzzled when I talk to her with that goofy thing in front of my face (camera).
