Posting and Linking Images using Flickr

Images uploaded to NRM and attached to your posts use server space paid for by our sponsor "New Modellers Shop". To avoid undue costs for them we would prefer you to link to the images stored in an account with a hosting site. Alex3410 one of our Admins has created a "how to" Youtube video.
How to store and link to images stored on flickr
the first thing you will need to do is open a flickr account.

Difficulties setting up a flicker account
I just wanted to share some information on setting up a flicker account, they do seem to be a tad troublesome for some reason. With mine that I set up years ago, using a BT email originally, they forced me to change it to a yahoo address a year or so ago which was a right pain but this is how I manage it:

Set up
I have set up a new yahoo account, I then used this to sign up for flicker. This is the only service I use this account for and have to note down the logins because I never remember them! its a good job Chrome does for me!

anyway once it's all set up go to the settings -> email & notifications

you can then add additional email addresses here for notifications as well as set a 'primary' email address - once you have done this you will get all of the usual email alerts to your normal email account.

it's just a case of remembering your new yahoo login when signing into flicker.


note: you can also set your screen name via settings ->personal information
This is then used by others to find you via flicker, i have set mine to alex3410 to match forum usernames - eg https://www.flickr.com/photos/alex3410/

Hi Alex, just for the fun of it, I have opened a flickr account. When I try to share a pic (whether private or public) the options share or email come up.
In share, facebook, twitter, etc are there and the https://www.flickr.com/photos/156877527 ... res/6BCMxP text, but there is no option for BBCode?
It is not a pro account, so is that the reason?

Thanks Alex
I was trying to do it from photostream, but it has to be done when viewing just the one photo
