      All I do is copy the url from my flickr pic and paste it in my post here.

        I do the same thing as John and it works every time. The only time there is a problem is when you edit the photo on Flickr AFTER it’s been posted on LightStalking.

      I have not done any coding for almost 15 years but computers used to be my life starting in 1983 on. I tought myself assembly language programming using the “debug” program that was shipped with the first versions of DOS. My first programming job was in ’85 as an assembly language programmer and then went to C. The last system I worked on was IBM RISC 6 machines running AIX 3.3. Now I just try to figure out how to get stuff off and onto my kindel!! LOL.

      It used to be that if you copied the URL from flickr you got a link pasted in to whatever site you wore using, whilst using the flickr share function as demo’d by @lunac73 you got a small sized copy of the image as the link. Does this still work the same? Below, the first posting is the URL, the second the share…

      Okay, my question is, how do you paste a comment or the EXIF info when you post an image? Can you add text after you paste in the HTML code?

    • #154664

      @shammy – Yes, you can post both the code and some comments after or before it. 🙂

      This only works for flickr, or for other links as well?

    • #199318

      @snap812 – It will work for any service that offers a html embed option. (Flickr, Instagram and 500px) but I think Flickr is the only one where pasting the flat url will work.

      This topic should be updated as flickr (as far as I can see) no longer offers the “HTML” option you use above.

        Well, if you only wanted a link in your post, yes, it worked. But if you wanted to embed the image, no, it did not work.

    • #210843

      The image is set to ‘Private’ on flickr, which is probably why it didn’t embed.

      • #210844
        Anonymous

        Ah, I’d not noticed that. So which of the flickr options would you copy and paste to have the image embed?
        The “grab link” or “html embed” or “BBCode”? Thanks, i want to post soon, but don’t just want to have a link show up.

        Hi, Rob, @balcer17, cool shot ….. were you just practicing here, ‘cos it worked fine. If you meant for it to be in a general forum, try reposting into ‘General Photo Chitchat’, and you’ll get a better response. Unless you want some critique, in that case repost into the ‘Shark Tank’. 🙂

      This is a test to see if I can embed from dpreview. If not, I’ll delete it–assuming I can edit my posts. Can one edit posts here?

      Say, what is the img tag in the list above the reply box for? Testing it here.

        Replying to myself–looks like the image tag will allow you to “add” the url for a photo and display it in your messages on the list. So….

        Does the picture show for others?

    • #212927
      SnowQueen
      Participant

      Guess the title should be “Sharing form some site other than Flickr.”

      If the img tag from the bar above the reply box allows us to place an image into our posts, why would we need to use an embed html code from Flickr or elsewhere? I guess what I am asking is–is it OK to post photos this way–using the img tag.

      Testing from another source.

      Edit: Nope–doesn’t always work. Strange.

      Hi, I’m very new here. Is it imperative to have a Flickr or Imgur account to upload a photo? Can I just upload from my computer? I can’t seem to find the answer to this very basic question, sorry.

    • #220021

      Yes @yemmy you need to upload to a 3rd party site offering you share script which you can then embed in your post here. flickr and imgur are the most used sites used by us for that purpose (you don’t have to be a subscribed member in case of imgur – you can just upload and share).

      <script async src=”//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>
      I see this after a lot of posts. When you copy the link from the flickr share routine depending on what browser you are using this script can appear at the end of the link information, Light Stalkings forum does not recognize this as valid code when posting photos, and this code in fact is not needed. it will always start with <script and end with script> so go ahead and delete this line of code as seen at the top of this post and all will be fine.

    • #220074

      Just an update to the current situation: the Share script rarely works for displaying your image. Rather click on Embed and copy the relevant script into your post.

      It’s already included on flickr but not everyone necessarily wants to go flickr. So, for the Shark Tank specifically this is my version: you could be a gentleman and repeat the EXIF data in your post – or you can force your viewer to look it up in flickr.

      For all non-shark-tank posts you could add it if you feel like it but since you’re not expecting your viewer to crit your shot, it’s quite acceptable not to add it. Nice shot, by the way…

        The Share script does not always work (it does in this case). The Embed script never fails to the best of my knowledge.

      Thanks Rob, Ideally I would have liked to have the photos show right away, however I am happy just for the link to the album to work. However when I tried for my Orakei Karako album, see separate thread, pasting the link above the Flickr album didn’t work. Had to do a workaround whereby I showed all my albums, only 3 in Flickr, and asked viewers to choose the left of these.

      When Judy and I go on holiday then I post my photos to Google Photos and invite various people to view them. However, as I understand it, photos from Google Photos will not embed in other sites. I will need to have some think about whether I continue to use both Google and Flickr, and if so, which images to put on each. Life is complicated !! 🙁

      Can you put up a link from your website instead of signing up for a Flickr account ? Yesterday I uploaded my photo from my computer. Sorry

      No worry Sue. This thread goes back in time and things at Lightstalking have changed as admin has improved the site. As it is right now you can load an image directly from you computer.

      However Flickr is free and a link to an image there allows others to see your camera settings etc. What ever works for you is fine. The main thing is that you are able to post your images here somehow.
