    I've always used Photobucket to post pictures on forums, but I've realized that they come out in much higher quality on Flickr.

    I tried inserting the tags around the link on my Flickr photos, but it didn't work.

    Can someone please help me?

    There's no reason why it shouldn't work. Just copy the location of your image (right-click on your image in flickr and use the "copy image location", at least that's what firefox uses as a menu option) and insert it between the img tags

    Example:
    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2594/3974444119_f824d23ff7.jpg

    inserted between img tags is

    Also with flickr you can click the "All sizes" option just above your photo. Go to that and you get a series of different size options for your images (resized automatically by flickr and it does a good job of it as well). You can select one of those sizes and then scroll down the page a little and copy the URL of the image. Put that between the tags and your away

    ps - loving that snakeshot snakekeeper!
