How to post photos from a Flickr account

Postby mraichelson » Mon Feb 10, 2014 9:57 pm

Since this has come up a couple times for new members (and isn't made particularly apparent on Flickr's part either) here's where to find the code to post photos from Flickr on the Hangar.

Browse to the photo page for the picture you want to post. Then on the right side of the page there are some white icons. You want to click the "sharing" icon.

From the popup that comes up you want to the "Grab the HTML/BBCode" option.

Image

Make sure BBCode is selected from the radio buttons at the bottom.

Sometimes pictures will get cut off if they're too wide, so I tend to stick with the medium image sizes (people can click through if they want to see them larger anyway).

Click in the text area with the BBCode in it (it should automatically select all of it) and copy it (ctrl+c on windows, cmd+c on mac).

Then you just need to come back here and paste it into a post (ctrl+v on win, cmd+v on mac).

I have been having trouble with this. Once I paste the code, it just makes a link

Like this:

Younge's Raiders by RenagadeGinger, on Flickr[/img]

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I'm not really techno-savvy, so it could be something simple.

Delete the IMG tags.

Yeah, don't use the "img" button above the text field. Just paste the stuff from Flickr. (Only one, not both.)

Does that button only exist on computer because I don't see one on the app?

Yeah, the sharing tools on the app (iOS at least) aren't really aimed at sharing on another site, more for "send this via email" kind of things.
