    This subject arose recently, so don't worry, you're not the only one ......
    If you look for the post about photos on threads from 'Movan' on 12th January, you'll find it all explained there!


    ...... here's the link...

    the simplest way is to open an account at www.photobucket.com upload your pictures there then paste the link (IMG) into the post.

    I don't use Flikr (I hate it ) So I can't be sure but as far as I'm aware you cannot share Flikr posts without messing with your Flikr sharing settings.

    However a photobucket account makes it easy to share on a forum, it gives you code to paste right into your post:thumb:

    As jim says, Flikr is a nightmare.. Apart from anything else, I am constantly getting warnings about flikr hosting ( inadvertently of course ) all sorts of nastys such as trojans etc that people post up..

    I use photobucket ( as Jim recommended ) .. Very easy to use, no issues and the share is simple to say the least :thumb:
