How to upload from Flickr to Eurobricks

Is there something I'm missing here? When I deeplink a picture from flickr, I click on the image, then click on the 'View all sizes' button in the upper right-hand corner, then copy the image location from the appropriate image size and put it into the 5179264406_b7f3f126e0_z.jpg

Though that doesn't seem to be how the rest of you are doing it...

Is there something I'm missing here? When I deeplink a picture from flickr, I click on the image, then click on the 'View all sizes' button in the upper right-hand corner, then copy the image location from the appropriate image size and put it into the <img src=""> tags. Using that process, I get this:

[img=http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1392/5179264406_b7f3f126e0_z.jpg]

Which displays as:

That is another way to deeplink images from flickr, and is my preferred method too rather than the 'Grab HTML/BBCode'.

If I correctly remember, flickr requires you to link back to their site everytime you deeplink a picture hosted there, which is achieved by flickr's BBcode.

And by required, what they really mean is suggest. I agree with KDman, I've been using flickr long before this new bb code, so I'm used to going into all sizes and grabbing the respective link.

I've merged this topic with the one that Rick posted. :thumbup: This was too in the first page of the forum, searching is useful sometimes. :wink:

Don't you get the same thing if you 'Grab BBCode' and then remove the links? I used to use 'View all Sizes', but 'Grab BBCode' is much faster.

You are correct, it's the same, but I am just so used to doing it the old way, I still do, plus it's nice to be able to select the size you want, not the default one.

But if you use the 'Grab BBCode' method, you can use the drop-down list to select the size.

Good to know.

Hi

I am having some trouble uploading images from flickr to Eurobricks.I cant seem to find a tutorial on how to do so either. :sceptic: When i copy the link at the top of the screen and paste it into the Insert image bar it just says it is not valid. :cry_sad: Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The browser address when you look at a picture on flickr isn't what you use.

When you're looking at the picture there's a bar above it and one of the buttons says "share". Click that and choose the HTML/BB code option. They even give you several options for size. Just copy/paste the code in the box, making sure you have a size chosen that's 800x600 or smaller and the the BB code bubble is chosen as well.

No idea where the tutorial is, but the way to do it is to click 'share' above the picture, then go to 'grab the html/bbcode' , set the tick box to BBCode (if it's not already set) and copy and paste the code from the window on flickr to the editing window here on EB. You don't need to use the 'insert image bar' here. That only works if the link has a valid extension (i.e. .jpg). You can get that link from flickr as well, but the way I described is the proper way to do it, in that clicking the picture will bring you to the flickr page where the picture is housed.

Cheers,

Ralph

edit: didn't realise that the question had already been answered when I submitted my post, but since I went to the trouble of typing the damn thing and can't delete a post, I'll leave it as is.

Thanks I will give that a shot. Here is a practice with a random picture. :classic:

No. You need to copy and paste the BBCode. Not the html.

Cheers,

I would suggest reading the tutorial I posted. You don't need all that fancy formatting, just the proper url.

You've got the wrong URL. Have you tried following the instructions here?

Thank-you!! Now one more question, When you go to post preview, do the images show or do they only show once you have posted?

Not sure if this is the wrong spot, but went to route some pics from Flicker to minifig customisation workshop

and it said that I was not '' Allowed to use that image extension on this board''. :sceptic:

You've probably got the wrong URL. Have you followed the instructions for embedding flickr photos on EB?

Hello!

For my third review in the RA, I have decided to start using flickr due to its resizing option during uploading in order to save time. However, I began to upload them, and I did not see a re-size 640x480 option. Is this for paid users only, or how do I find this. I am only given a default or small size option.

Thanks,

TrumpetKing67

Once your photo is uploaded, if you right-click on it you should be given a number of size options, including a 'Medium 640' which is what you need.
