Wow, it looks like I shouldn't've gone to the library! :D

Ann, you've obviously gotten a clue (thanks, Brat). Here's some more stuff:

On Flickr (grr). If I bring up a pic of the Drugit, right-click and choose "Copy Image" and hit paste here:
(nothing happens)
If I choose "Copy Image Location" and hit paste:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2118/2142029936_8d9d22b021.jpg?v=0 (which you can click and be taken to the pic)

In order to make it something other than a random address, I should be able to just add around it:

...but obviously that doesn't work.

If I click on the LITTLE "all sizes" button above Drugit's picture on my Flickr page (which we still haven't gotten to), I can scroll down and get a different address:
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2118/2142029936_c91923eee2_o.jpg

Oh, but look. At the bottom of the page it says, Remember! Flickr Community Guidelines specify that if you post a Flickr photo on an external website, the photo must link back to its photo page. (So, use Option 1.) <-Which is cutting and pasting html code, which doesn't do a rat's fart's worth of good here.

The web address of Drugit is in the address bar of my browser (the http:// thing). Drugit's at http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiberbabble/2142029936/ , which has all of the other Flickr sh.tuff on it (but it's a direct link to the picture). Can we [img ] it?

Nope.

:star: Are you beginning to see why I'm not a fan of Flickr?

Here's what you need to do to be "legal" with Flickr AND be able to post pictures - BUT ONLY if your picture is small enough to fit in the post box (whatever it is that I'm typing in right now):
Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiberbabble/2142029936/][img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2118/2142029936_c91923eee2_o.jpg[/img][/url]

To get this - a clickable pic that takes you to the same and same-sized pic at the Flickr site:


Woo, huh?

To get that I had to know how to translate the html ('a href' stuff), click on Drugit to get the picture-only address, then go back to my original page to get the web address and oh, yeah - type all of that stuff in.

And we ALL will remember how to do that every time, won't we?

(Uh-oh... my opinion's showing)

You know, millions of people all over the world use Flickr. Obviously it's not the worse thing in the world (heh). I've never considered it to be user friendly (oh! an old blog post about it! ), but truly, truly, truly, it might just be me.

(More in a minute)

Okay, here's what I see on my Photobucket screen:

(that's clickable)

To zoom in, here's what I see:


So far what I did was open the page that had my knitting stuff on it (one of the pages!) and found Drugit's little brother, Lambchop. Clicked on the IMG box below the picture I wanted to share, and got this:
Code:
[IMG]http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e268/fiberbabble/Knitting/lambchopface.jpg[/IMG]

Since I don't have a "large size" and a "small size" for the clickability, you get the full-on pic:


That seems to me like
1. Find the picture in my online photo album (photobucket).
2. Click on the IMG code below the picture.
3. Paste the IMG code into this post.
4. Blow a raspberry at Flickr.
(oh, wait... you can skip that last part, if you want) :P

You won't lose the pictures! Gimme a minute or two, I'll go see how Webshots works....
(I was looking to see if there was an import/export feature. Couldn't find one)

Okay. You will have to save every one of your Flickr pictures to your hard drive if you want to go with Webshots unfortunately, as far as I can tell. Flickr isn't going to make it easy to export your pictures. I don't know, I would imagine that most places don't want to make it easy to leave their service.

Both Photobucket and Webshots, however, make it easy to UPLOAD a whole mess of files at once.

To copy FROM Flickr:
1. Find the picture and click on "All Sizes"


2. Click on "Download the Large Size"


3. Save the photo/scan/whatever SOMEWHERE THAT YOU CAN FIND IT and with a name that makes sense to you.


Again, there are millions of people out there who use and love Flickr. There may be an easier way to do what I just described, but since I consider it to be so user-UNfriendly (yes, my opinion again), this is what I could come up with.
;)

(Oy, there's more... just trying to break it up into smaller bits!)

Okay, I'm using Webshots for this presentation. I have to tell you, it's got some good points - you can link a small pic to a larger pic very easily without actually uploading two sizes of the same picture. On the flip side, it's not as easy to just plop a picture in (without resizing it or linking it to your webshots album).

But I digress...

And, yes, I fully expect/assume (!) that this discussion will get it's own home :)

...Now, where was I? Oh, yeah:

On that Flickr page that you could download from? If you scroll down and find the actual photo address (the one that's not supposed to be used according to their fine print) and copy that:


Go over to Photobucket and click on "from URL" in the Upload Images box:


Paste in what you copied from Flickr, and voila - You've uploaded your Flickr pic to Photobucket.

If you have a bunch, this is a pretty big undertaking, but it might be preferable to saving stuff to your hard drive and then re-uploading them.

Phew! I hope I'm done for a bit, my backside's getting numb (and Mr. W. might be wanting some grub this evening!). :heart:

(Oh, and you know what? I think I'm gonna download these instructions so that I don't have to reinvent the wheel next time someone is in the path of my opinion!)
