    I am not sure this is the right place for this post, but I have been unable to find anything, anywhere else in this forum, at least that was obvious to me, and since I wish to post to this forum, I thought I should start by asking here...:confused:

    Is there somewhere that the rules, process, etc., are posted so that I can find out how to do this and what the size limitations, and other restrictions might be, e.g., no. of images one can post at a time, etc. ...I would like to post up one of my first attempts at an HDR sunset - it is already available for viewing on flickr, so I would also like to know how to get it from flickr to this forum (do I just copy and paste it into a new thread on this forum, or what?), so I can get a bit of feedback on it. Thanks.

    Cheers,

    WesternGuy

    Well guys, I tried and it did not work, so I will try it again and check out things - maybe the image is too big. I will try making it smaller and reposting it to both flickr and Photobucket and see if it is workable. If at first...and all that...;)

    With flickr goto sharethis tab in the pics page. Select "grab the HTML/BBCode"

    The code will appear and you copy the SECOND webaddress in the code.

    there is a dropdown box where you pick size. Pick this first as the code changes depending on the size

    Once you have the code copied come back to message window and select the add pic icon. paste code and hit OK

    Thanks Myshkin for the added info...when I click on "grab the HTML/BBCode", I get a bunch of stuff in the "code box" and then I set the size and then I noticed that there are two radio buttons below where the code is displayed. Do I select the HTML button, or the BBCode button as they give different results to copy and paste from? Also, does the copied address have to be bracketed by the IMG.../IMG tags in the HDR post?

    I am sorry that I am so slow to get this, but this posting of stuff is all new to me. I have used Photobucket, once or twice, but Lightroom makes it a lot easier to upload to a flickr account directly, so I need to understand how to do this. Lightroom does not have a preset for Photobucket, although I understand that there is one (a preset) out there somewhere.


    Regards,

    Thanks Georgie Girl, but don't forget this is my first attempt ever. We are starting our annual January thaw where the daytime temperature actually climbs above 0°C (about 18°F) and things get a little more conducive to outdoor photography. In the meantime, I have been reading up on the subject and making a list of landscapes I want to try whenever Spring gets here, which in Southern Alberta is anytime after the middle of February or March :lol:...now if I can just get this upload figured out and working, then everything will be hitting paydirt again.

    Cheers,

    you leave that switch on html.

    You do not need to put the tags the forum does it for you. just select the icon for adding pics. It is the second icon to the left of the smiley face icon when you are in the message box.
    When you click that icon a box pops open where you will paste the address

    In flickr you don't need the whole code just copy the second HTML in the code. Start at http and it ends at JPG

    Many thanks myshkin for all your help with this process - it is all new to me. Hopefully I can follow those instructions together with the previous ones and finally figure this out...:confused:

    Will try it tonight when I have more time.

    NO. You need to select the BBCode radio button for posting here.

    Select BBCode, the size you want, then hi-light the text, copy and paste. That's it.

    And yes - you do want to copy the whole code.
    Copying the whole code will make the picture a clickable link, and also put a link to both that picture and your photostream under the picture.
