It makes everything really easy, you don't have to go searching for file names, or install "third-party" software. You start off with 1GB of space (they claim it's 4000 photos), and you can upload videos too! And (so far) there isn't any limit on how much you can upload in a week/month/whatever

I've also used Flickr, and it's good because I have a Yahoo account, but I didn't like it all that much. I uploaded 5 pictures, then they were all "Buy a premium account if you want to do any more this month!" No thanks!


NOTE: I am a total google fangirl.

ETA: Web Albums also lets you download your photos as an album. I can't find any way to do that on Flickr.

Oh dear, I didn't realise Flicker is so weird about linking... I've only ever used trusty Right click - Copy Image Location - Place in img tags method for posting pictures on my account.

Yeah, that's something I get confused about...
Flickr makes it easy to post a picture, you choose a size and then there are little boxes underneath the image and you just copy and paste the code.
The strange thing is... is that they offer two versions of the code, one makes the picture a link back to where it is on your flickr (which is the way they request it to be), and the other is just the plain location that you would have to manually enter into img tags.


I've done the manual way many times without any problems or repercussions, but, I've recently started using the linked code 'cause it raises my images' popularity and interestingness.

Ravelry and Photos

Hi! - it's Casey from Ravelry.

We'll be providing other ways for people to add photos when we open to the public. We know that some of you use Photobucket and we want you to be happy. We chose to start with Flickr for two reasons:

1) It's the best photo service from an integration point of view - the way we tie in with Flickr is nice (in my opinion ) and we wish that all services were as open and flexible as Flickr. This why there are all sorts of great tools and applications for Flickr users.

2) It's the most popular among our users. At least so far. We had to pick one for starters and about 2/3 of users would prefer to use Flickr over anything else.

I recently set up an account with Flickr, and when I copy and paste the code here, it doesn't show an image, just the code with a few wonky links. I found out that I actually prefer Flickr, but I can't really use it.

I had that happening too. I figured it out! (well my super smart computer lovin hubby figured it out for me) When you copy the picture location from flickr there is something added at the end here is the location of one of my pictures:

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/187/4...37deee.jpg?v=0

The ?v=0 shouldn't be there on the end. Our forum needs the picture to stop at .jpg. If you insert the picture and before you close the box delete the ?v=0, your picture will show up in the post just like this:

Yeah - Flickr doesn't provide easy access to pasteable links like Photobucket. This bookmarklet is pretty cool, you just drag it to your bookmark bar, click it when you are on a Flickr page, and it displays image links for each photo on the page. It's also got a few tricks and can display bbcode and other things...

Okay, let me try now:



Okay, it works, but doesn't Flickr require that you make the photos link back to their site?

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/conti_knits/563347085/" title="Photo Sharing"><img src="http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1438/...f008c61b_o.jpg" width="350" height="262" alt="Lace Scarf Detail" /></a>

That's what I get when I just copy and paste the Option 1 code from Flickr. I wonder why?
