How to Post Photos from your Flickr on Civilian Aviation

Postby GOOSE » Wed Oct 27, 2010 2:57 pm

Following on from the 'How To Post' thread here http://www.civilianaviation.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=39 This is a step by step guide on how to post a photo on the forums using Flickr:

On your Flickr photostream
Click on the picture of your choice to open it
At the top left of the photo are two boxes; one has 'Actions' with a drop down arrow and the other includes the symbols for Email, Facebook & Twitter with a drop down arrow. Click on the later arrow and a drop down box will appear
Click on 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' option
Select the image size that you want to post your images in from the drop down menu below the text box (Eg 'Large 1024 x 683')
Select the BBCode option next to the image size selection box
Now click on the text in the above box and it will turn blue
Right click and select Copy
Finally, paste the link into your post

Sorry, knew I'd forgotten to post it somewhere! (Stuck it on about 8 different places!)

1) Click the square with an arrow in it.
2) Click the pin.
3) Choose the size of image you want.
4) Copy the code displayed.

For me at least, the FlickR layout appears to have changed since Chris did his excellent instructions and as we have received a help request I have done this based on how flickR now appears to me. I hope it helps to understand how to post photos on here:

Stages 1 to 4:
1: click the little arrow (same as Chris's method)

2: click on BBCode if it is not already the highlighted option and then select the image size you want, note the largest options bay require you scrolling the screen down to see them ( again, same as Chris's)

3: the pin that Chris refers to is no longer there for me so ingore that stage and right click on the code to copy it

ImageflickR1 by sickbag_andy, on Flickr

4: when you right click on it the drop down appears with copy (I expect most if not all computer users know that by now but I will state the obvious just in case), then select copy

5: that generates the full code which when you paste it anywhere appears as I have copied it here. A tip - I usually copy it to a word document first to save the code in case I lose my internet connection or the forum fails before I have finished, particularly if I am uploading a lot of photos.

6: go to our beloved forum and open / start the topic you wish to post to (I usually work with multiple windows open so that I can go back and forth between FlickR and the forum in case I forget to paste before I copy the next code) and paste the code into your topic

ImageflickR3 by sickbag_andy, on Flickr

and that is that, just add any accompanying text and then either choose 'submit' to post it or if you're like me and worry you might have made a mistake select 'preview' first and check that it looks right, then select 'submit'

Hope that helps but can anybody now help me - I find I have to copy each photo code individually, is there a way to copy all the codes from an album at once or several codes from different photos all at once please? - that would save loads of time every time. I know you can do it on Photobucket but it has eluded me on here. MTIA

You were lucky. We lived for three months in a rolled-up newspaper in a septic tank.
We used to have to get up every morning at 6 o’clock and clean the newspaper, go to
work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and
when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt.

radiostationX (Mike) saw this topic and sent me the following links to a forum which he frequents and some details of handy hints for flickR and Google photo users, these might be handy to members of our forum so Mike has suggested that I post links here :

There are a few additional tricks you can do with flickr.
I made up a quick guide on flickr and google uploading for my local group here

http://derbosoft.proboards.com/thread/2 ... ading-tips

and even more tricks with googles services,

many thanks again to radiostationx (who posts superb OTT photos on here) for sending me the links and for the work that went into the original posts

Thanks for all the help, I've now got Flickr and have used it for my July SPOTM entry - and it works! :clap: :thumbs:

Just means I've got a lot of work to redo everything I've used PB for :roll: (expletives deleted)
