instructions for deep-linking Flickr pictures -- thanks go to Clone O'Patra, Artanis I, Big Cam and Darkdragon!

When you're viewing an image (now surrounded by those dumb black bars), there are numerous icons beneath it. The one at the far right looks like three dots in a row. Click on that - it pops up a menu. One of the choices is 'view all sizes,' which gets you to the same old type of page with numerous size choices.

New way. Click on the image until you find a button that says "More ways to share" (it looks like a box with a curved arrow coming out of it), click on "Grab the HTML/BBCode" then select the size you want from the menu. Copy the appropriate text. (If you don't want to copy the entire box then delete it later, just use the cursor keys + shift key to select the URL for the photo.)
You can either copy the URL as in the first part of my post, or if you follow CloneOP's direction you can use whatever method your browser has to identify the URL. In Chrome, you can just right-click and select "Copy Image URL". In Firefox I think you had to go to Tools->Page Info then look for the image you want under "Media".
All you need to do to post any Flickr photo on EB is click on the share box, select the BBCode option, select the size from the drop-down menu, then copy & paste the text directly into your post. This is the result:

I've whipped up some quick and poorly edited pictures visually showing what Clone O'Patra is talking about.
Find the image you want, and when you click on it, you should see something similar to this.
Once you've clicked those 3 little dots, you will see this menu. Select "View all Sizes"
Once at the select a size page, select the size you want, and once the image has loaded, right click anywhere on the image and copy the link URL.
If you are using Chrome, it's an option right when you right click (awesome, use Chrome).
If you are using IE, you will have to right click, go to properties and then manually copy the URL address.
If you are using Firefox, right click the image and select "Copy image location"
If you are using Safari(apple/Mac), Ctrl+Click, or Right Click, then "Copy Image address"

An easier way is if you are viewing the image normally, right-click it and you will see the "800px" etc links that you see above the image on the "all sizes" page. That will take you directly the size you want where you can right-click and grab the deeplink url like normal.
