Think I got my shot for Transport this afternoon - and it isn’t a train! It does, however, run on rails :)

Can`t say in the virus thread as it`s locked, mums doctor phoned to tell me she has been taken to hospital very poorly and someone will come out to see me. So all my photography is now on hold.
I do hope your Mum is OK, Dave, Like @-Oy- says, I am concerned and very protective of mine too.

I've never tried, but I seem to remember something about this going back some while,
iirc. Ditch the App and just go straight to flicker via the web.

These days I always attach the photo directly rather than embedding it from Flickr. You might have to downsize it first though I guess?

...or perhaps you don’t have the image on your phone? In which case you could try screenshotting your Flickr pic and attach that for now?

Edit: Just tried google. As @Cobra suggested I think you have to go to desktop version .. see end of this post https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157680949394506/

Sorry to hear about your mum @Dave70D

Here in BCN we are on lockdown, so in theory people are confined to their homes. Yesterday Sanchez spoke to the nation. He explained that we could still go out (to work, to buy food and medication) but that everything "non-essential" would be closed. Then he went on to say that petrol stations, tobacconists, newsagents, hairdressers and even dry-cleaners could stay open.
Very strange! I think we are heading in the same direction as Italy.

Thanks Bob, a friend is going to stay with Mum till Wednesday as I`m going over then to do a shop for her. So I`m just twiddling my fingers at the moment while testing out my V.

But in London the No.9 bus is an old Routemaster not just any new bus
Last time I was in London it was a NEW bus :D

There is a 500 Kb limit on attaching images but the size remains at 1024px on the longest side.
With linking from flicker there is no Kb limit. but the size remains at 1024px on the longest side.

I am on 7 day isolation as per doc's instructions so I think my transport shot will be a bit creative! Just warning you all now!

If you're using the app on android.
1. Open the picture
2. You should get 4 options at the bottom, edit, comment, share, info.
3. Select Share
4. Select "Copy URL" (should be the top option)
5. Paste the URL into your thread.

It's not as nice as using a pc, but it will work, I just tested it for you. Example:
https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/link-test.708411/post-8651326
Better than nothing

Hope you're OK, Joan. Plenty of thinking time there for your Transport shot.

It is indeed:

@minx the only route you can catch an old Routemaster is the 15, but only in summer on weekends and bank holidays. And probably not during corona virus time.

@Cobra this snap of the number 9 bus is not acceptable then?

I hope you're ok! Walking is a means of transportation that can be used in all but the smallest confinements... :)

So oddly. @minx was half right. The No.9 was a heritage route until 25th July 2014, when it lost it's RMs.
