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