    Call me stupid but since the site change, how do I embed a photo from Flickr please?

    I select the BCC code and paste it but that doesn't work.

    AFAIK photos auto embed ? If you link it should show

    Cheers, it'll link but can only seem to get it linking to staticflickr.

    It'll do for the moment.

    it appears it won't work for me either. i haven't used a forum in like 7 years & i guess the old way as you mentioned above doesn't work. i tried all the other share options as well & just kept getting errors! MEEP

    if someone could point me in the right direction, i'd appreciate it!

    You can’t embed Flickr any more, and the new platform doesn’t support BBCode.

    It does, however let you upload images direct from your phone or computer auto-embed them in the post. Which means that even there won’t be broken image links here in the future if people delete thinks from Flickr. So best bet is to hit the image icon, and upload your image from a local copy.

    If you paste a URL of an image hosted elsewhere and hit return after, it will embed the image too. But that won’t work for Flickr, as the images themselves don’t have a URL.

    Hi all, first time wandering in here I think. I did the NCFE level 1 in photography last year, just for something to do. Really got into photography over the course of the year when I had time for it. Upgraded my camera in June and spent the summer trying to focus on macro photography. Some of the earlier photos were bad, I’ve improved a lot over the summer but I still dont think I’m a great photographer, at least not yet anyway. I’m signed up to start level 2 next week. Can’t wait to get started again although photoshop is the Bain of my life. Some of the others in the class struggle with it too so I’m not on my own. I’ve just put a few of my photos from the summer up in the photo thread. I saved them on to my phone from Facebook and posted them here so the quality isn’t the best but constructive criticism is welcome. 😊
