Linking to pictures on Flickr

Postby Joanna Carter » Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:05 am UTC+00:00

Some of you have been having problems working out how to link to your pictures on Flickr.

Here is a step by step guide:


  1. Go to the Flickr page and find your picture
  2. Above the picture there is a "Share" drop-down menu item
  3. You will find the "Copy link" text but, at the bottom, you will see "Copy HTML/BBCode"
  4. Click on this item and you will see a text box with either HTML or BBCode
  5. Select the BBCode button at the bottom and select an appropriate picture size
  6. Copy all the code and paste it into your message
  7. Trim everything outside of the [img] tags

e.g.
Code: Select all
Before trimming
