Help a newbie out?

Post by MarriedHerper » September 6th, 2010, 1:31 pm

Hi, I'm fairly new to this forum, and I am trying to upload pictures from my Flickr account, but whenever I use the Img button on the posting page, it just posts the little jpg icon with the shapes inside it. Does anyone have a more reliable way of posting? Or maybe step-by-step instructions that even I can't mess up?

Thanks,

Flickr can be a little more tricky than Photobucket. Here are the steps I just went through to post a pic below:

1. Right-click on the picture in Flickr that you are trying to post, and select "Copy Image Location"
2. On your forum post, click on the "Img" tag
3. Your cursor will automatically be placed in between the image command, so just paste the image location right where the cursor is.
4. Voila, a kung-fu gray treefrog. I always preview the post before submitting, just to make sure everything is correct.
