    Hi All,

    Not sure where to ask this question but here seemed to make sense! I can't work out how to post photos on forums here - I've tried both linking to flickr as well as 'upload a file' at the bottom but neither seems to work. Help please!

    Thanks
    Tom

    If using Flickr you need to use the Flickr BBcode, found in the share option.

    P. S. You can't post photos from the Flickr app

    The gallery/image posting system is being revamped here on TP....see the notice at the top of the page - so you can't upload/post images from the site gallery for a while unfortunately.

    I found this guide useful for linking to Flickr:

    https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/tutorials/inserting-images-from-flickr-updated-22-08-15.7/

    Not sure if it's bang up to date, but I managed to cobble something together....basically you need to select the image you want to share from Flickr, hit the share icon, select BBcode, select the size - 1024 on the long side is best - copy that link and paste it into your post here. Done!

    :)

    Yep that's the current method.

    Plus images can be attached by using the "up load a file" button bottom right.
    Files must be no bigger than 1024 px on the longest side nor larger than 500kb or you will get an error message.

    Thanks for the replies folks. Still doesn't seem to work - can't work out what I'm doing wrong

    You are not the first person to do this, ( or not do it as the case may be) and I'm sure you won't be the last :D

    Glad you got there in the end (y)
