Hi
I don't know if this has been asked before on here,but I'm hoping someone can help.
I am new to Flickr & want to use it for posting my photos, but I don't know how to post the photo(s) so they can be visibly seen without clicking on the link I have included below.

https://www.flickr.com/gp/153428286@N06/D90W52

Thanks for any help & advise

Regards
Rich

  1. 1 On Flickr go to "Share Photo" - the curved arrow at the bottom RHS of the screen 
  2. 2 On the Pop-Up box - Share 1 photo to: ~ select the BBCode tab
  3. 3 In the dropdown for picture size ~ select Medium 800x465 
  4. 4 Now highlight and select the code ~ e.g. 
    [url=https://flic.kr/p/txMt3U][img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7779/18081315148_d560654529_c.jpg[/img][/url]https://flic.kr/p/txMt3U">kinneil_01 by https://www.flickr.com/photos/neroz3/">Neil, on Flickr
  5. 5 On the forum, paste this code into your reply 
  6. 6 Between the 2nd and 3rd lines type Enter twice to split the code  e.g. 
    [url=https://flic.kr/p/txMt3U][img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7779/18081315148_d560654529_c.jpg[/img][/url]

    https://flic.kr/p/txMt3U">kinneil_01 by https://www.flickr.com/photos/neroz3/">Neil, on Flickr
  7. 7 Repeat steps 1 - 6 to add further photos ~ personally, I would only post 6 photos max per post

You need to add the 2 Enters - as in step 6 to format the post correctly

Without Enters

With Enters

Thanks neil.
I will give it a go from my laptop/pc when I have more photos as the photo I posted was from my iPad & It didn't give me a drop down box to select the photo size.

If you're using the app, there is no option to use the BB Code.  You have to use the webpage version.

Hi mjn
Thanks for the info. I did wonder if that was the case,that the mobile version would have its limitations compared to the web version.
