    So I suck at all things computing...let's just get that out of the way.

    I'm trying to post pictures from Flickr, with which I've done lots of before...but now nothing seems to be working for me. I'm trying all kinds of different links in the box that pops up when you click the image button. nothing seems to be working.


    I'm clicking the image button, then copy/paste the link that is provided on flickr. Nothing.
    I've also tried the right click, properties, copy link, paste link...like I normally do. Nothing.
    **EDIT: just tried the usual process I do, except with my tablet...and it worked fine. I blame the new technology & new windows**
    I am using a different computer with the newest version of Windows, since my usual desktop is not connected to the internet...would this have anything to do with it?
    I feel old...and like a noob...

    Flickr is a b-double-star-c-h about getting the original image files from their display controller. The best way is probably to click the "Share this photo" icon in flickr, then select the BBCode option, and paste an edited img portion of the result.

    Example of the original Flickr BBCode:
    Code:
    [url=https://flic.kr/p/6fefPu][img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3624/3442801090_bd1533120f_s.jpg[/img]04/14/2009[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/people/32001877@N03/]lawlnet[/url], on Flickr
    
    This will display:
    [​IMG]04/14/2009 by lawlnet, on Flickr


    What you want to nick from it:
    Code:
    [img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3624/3442801090_bd1533120f_s.jpg[/img]
    
    This will show just the tiny image:
    [​IMG]

    And how you want to edit it:
    Code:
    [img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3624/3442801090_bd1533120f_b.jpg[/img]
    
    Replace the _s in the end of the filename to _b - small becomes big:

    Yes, and I don't know if I'm more impressed or distressed that you recognized it.

    Awesome! LOVE that Ferrari 400! I know they aren't as popular with enthusiasts, but that shade of blue looks amazing! :)
