Updated instructions for deep-linking Flickr pictures


I didn't want to bump the old topic by asking this, so I started a new one.

So, I know how to put photos from Brickshelf to Eurobricks. However, my photos from Brickshelf are all grainy. So I made a Flickr account. I uploaded a new photo to Flickr, and an old one from Brickshelf to Flickr. The one on Flickr was much larger and better quality.

However, when I tried to upload it to Eurobricks, it came up with "You are not allowed to use this image extension on this board." Could someone please explain to me the correct way to upload from Flickr?

Thanks in advance :sweet: .

Right-click on the picture, you'll get a little pop up box listing all the sizes. Click one of the sizes. You're taken to the page with one pic in the size you clicked and links to other sizes. Click the links until you find the size you want. Right-click on that picture, open the picture in a new tab or window, and deeplink the URL of said new tab or window.

Thanks, but I forgot to mention I'm on an iPod Touch :blush: . Is it possible to upload from these?

I believe you'd be limited to the medium size of the pic, but I believe you can hold your finger down on the photo, wait for the options to come up, and tap 'Copy'. Then deeplink the copied URL.

I'll put up a picture tutorial later today, but for now:

1. On your flickr home page, click "flickr.com" at the bottom, to get to the full site.
2. Locate your photo.
3. In the upper left corner, right above your photo, you'll see a drop down menu with email, Facebook and Twitter symbols. Click the arrow to get the drop down menu.
4. Go to where it says "Grab the HTML/BBCode" and make sure it's set to BBCode, and a size format suitable for Eurobricks.  
5. Press on the code until the magnifying glass shows up, let go and click "Select All", then select "Copy".
6. Paste that here directly, not into the image inserter.

That will not work, as it's just a link to the page, not to the photo itself.

Even if you're holding down on the photo?

EDIT: ...and it doesn't work. :blush: I forgot about flickr's 'do everything to make it hard to deeplink photo without link to flickr' thing.

Thanks very much, Ricecracker and Brickdoctor! This is a lot easier, as it means I can do it all on one thing.

EDIT: it's not working :wacko: . When I post it here, it just comes up with the BBCode I copied from Flickr but with [img] tags at the end and after the first line.

Here's what I do (computer):

1. Copy the entire BBCode for the picture into your post:

<a href="http://www.flickr.co...8r/5679646276/" title="rango by vmln8r, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static....77286249d8.jpg" width="500" height="353" alt="rango"></a>

2. In the above, delete everything except the second URL, so you're left with:

http://farm6.static...._77286249d8.jpg

3. Highlight the URL and click insert image:

Posted Image

Here's an alternative way, where the image is a link to the relevant flickr page (or wherever).

4. Copy the URL for your photo page (not the image itself), ie http://www.flickr.co.../in/photostream

5. In EB, highlight the URL including img tags and click insert link.

6. Paste the URL into the URL box.

You actually don't need to post it into the image inserter, since it's already in BBCode. :blush:

Yeah... no need to complicate it.  The BBCode links back to your flickr stream, too, which is nice.... just cut and paste into your post.

I'm not sure if you ever figured this out using only your ipod, but I recently spent about 10 minutes posting one picture on the forum from my flickr account all on my android phone, an ipod touch should work the same.

1. Go to flickr and find the photo you want. While using your ipod touch the UAstring should be set to mobile so the flickr site you will be at should be the mobile one.  I'll use my most recent photo as an example, here is the link I see on my mobile device.
http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/bigcamphotography/5707608290/sizes/m/

2. Once you are at the picture you want, scroll to the bottom of the webpage and click the blue link that says flickr.com, this is underneath the copyright info.

3. This brings you to the same picture but at the normal www.flickr.com, here is the url I am at after clicking flickr.com
http://www.flickr.com/photos/bigcamphotography/5707608290/sizes/m/
Note: this still isn't the url you want.

4. From here I hold down on the picture and a few options come up, one is to view image.  When I choose that it brings my picture up in a new window and the only thing displayed is the image.  THIS is the url you want.  I don't have an ipod touch, so I hope you have a similar option, here is the url I'm at now.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3588/5707608290_83525946bf.jpg

5. Once you have the correct url just add image tags to it and your set
[img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3588/5707608290_83525946bf.jpg[/img]

Which yields us this
Posted Image



I hope this helps, it took me about 15 minutes to write up using my android phone, I only say that to remind you everything is slower when working on a small mobile device.

Thanks, Big Cam! Although I've already been told how to do it all on an iPod, I'm sure that information will be very useful for Android users.

Read my tutorial a few posts up, I made it for mobile devices, but the concept is the same, you can just skip the part about going to the full site, since you'll already be there.

And I assume you meant brickshelf is down, not bricklink, and just like a year ago, when it went down, I urge everyone to find an alternate hosting option, flickr being a good one.

Hello, I'm wondering how I deeplink pictures from flickr?  I've found out how to get the link for the image, but when I put them in the deeplink box and I select preview post it just shows me the addresses.  The flickr links look a lot different from the ones on brickshelf.  Does anyone know what I'm missing?  Thanks In advanced!

On the page for a picture, click on the dropdown arrow next to the facebook icon, and select 'Grab HTML/BBCode', select size (preferably 500px) and tick 'BBCode'. Copy/past what you get and you're done.

But that's basically what Ricey explained here.
