Flickr is no good, tried that because it gives you a link to a page not to an image file, so the forum img tag enclosing wonít work - it wonít find an image embedded inside a simple html doc and display just the image. You canít do that which roseway and jelv have achieved.

Yes it can, and gives about a dozen size options, it's very easy to, you're just not doing it correctly.







All done on my tablet  ;D

I just tried the Android Flickr app, and it doesn't have a suitable share option for forums, so I doubt the Apple app will so this needs to be done from a browser.

Log in to Flickr
Find the picture you wish to share and click it, so its the only picture displayed
Down the bottom right you have 4 icons, edit, share, download, and buy.
Click the share button
Click BBCode (See attached)
From the drop down select the size (See attached)
Finally copy the code from the box.
Paste it directly in to your forum post, it is already formatted with IMG tags, I just remove the last URL as it makes things untidy.

I can confirm that the Flickr app on iOS 10 doesn't have a share option suitable for forums, but when logging on to Flickr with the Safari browser it does behave as Ronski says.

I have tried the Google Photos iOS app on my iPad, but I canít find a url pointing to the image file itself, usual problem of only getting urls for pages that contain the image, so when I try to put an img link in a forum post it just fails.

Try using a browser to look at Google Photos!

This is what I HATE about apps, so often its ten times harder or even impossible to do the same thing that the website does.

Facebook messenger is one I particularly hate.  I once spent half an hour trying to figure out how to send an image to a friend, got fed up and did it on the PC with a simple drag and drop.

It baffles me that so many people every day are fighting with apps when they could do the same things ten times faster just using a very basic PC. 

Then you have the people who buy Macs to do something a Chromebook could do just as easily for a fraction of the price.

When you're so deep in the tech community, its easy to forget that most people not only do not know better, but also don't WANT to know.  But I've gotten awfully off topic now.

Perhaps Iíve got things wrong with Flickr or perhaps it has changed but all I could find when I looked into it was a link to a page not to an image.

I donít have iCloud photo storage but Janet does, but the time limit rules it out for this application.

Weaver, you've got things wrong, Flickr is exactly the same as it was six months ago when I started using it.

Click a photo, look for the little arrow pointing right near to the basket and download icons in the bottom right, click it, click BBCode tab, copy the text.

Actually, having played around a bit more,  even aside from the expiry date, Iím not sure iCloud would have worked for you.   It generates a link OK, but I donít think itís compatible with [IMG][/IMG] formatting, so not much use for posting on forums.

[Moderator edited to fix what is shown for the "img" tags.]

Use the Safari browser to log into your Flickr account, and select the photo you want to refer to. Then you can click on the "share" icon, and BBcode should be one of the options offered - at least it is on my iPad running iOS 10.

It took several attempts to select the BBcode (probably because my iPad is horrendously slow), but here it is:

I found a curving arrow, with help from her indoors. Like the forward arrow in email. I trimmed off the junk not needed. Leaving just the IMG part.

You didn't post a picture of a cat, is that not a bannable offence on this forum?  ;D
