I haven't found a one click IMG code yet. I click on the share link in the photostream, then click on the BB code. I extract the IMG code from the BB code. Delete characters before "https" and after "jpg". Maybe there is an easier way, but I haven't found it. You will need to paste the BB code as is before you can delete any part of it.

Re: testing flickr

Make sure you set privacy to public view for the photo(s) you want to post.

Is this on a smart phone or desktop? For desktop, pics have to be filed into an album first. Once they're in an album, click on them to open. In the bottom right you'll see an arrow. Click that to open and select "BBCode". Set the pic size at medium or less first.Highlight and copy the whole string. Post that in your thread.

Re: testing flickr

The Flickr image I posted was originally set to private (default setting). I was still able to post it on this website. I just changed it to public.


Here are the steps I made to upload the image on Team Camaro:

I created an album in Flickr and uploaded some photos in one session.

I closed Microsoft Edge. (This was not necessary.)

I restarted Microsoft Edge.
I went to my new Flickr account and opened the album I created earlier. The screen showed a grid of photos that I uploaded.
I right clicked on one of the photos. A drop down menu appeared.
I selected "copy link" from the menu.
I opened and instance of Team Camaro and pasted the link into the insert image pop up screen.


There is another way that is more round about.
Left click on the image that is in the album. The image will appear full screen.
Scroll down to an icon that looks like an arrow that points to the right. Left click on the arrow.
A pop up screen will appear that has a header that states "Share one photo to:"
Select BBCode
Optionally select the resolution of the photo
Cut the [url=https: ..........] line
Paste the [url.....] line in the Team Camaro insert image pop up screen.

Re: testing flickr

I am on a PC and this works for me.

On the opening screen, I have only two of the menu items that will show photos, Camera Roll and Photostream. Camera Roll will show all photos regardless of privacy settings. Photostream will only show photos ready to share. Make sure you are trying to post from the Photostream. When you click a photo in the Photostream, it will bring up a photo viewer. Click the arrow to the right of the photo to bring up the selection box.

When you first upload photos, make sure the privacy settings in the sub-menu to the left are set to "Visible to Everyone." This will place the photo in the Camera Roll and Photostream.

Hope this helps...

Mike.

When you get the "Share 1 photo to:" you should see:

Share Embed Email BBCode

Selecting "Share" shows icons for various social media and a short url
Selecting "Embed" shows html code and options
Selecting "Email" shows a type in box for your email addy and a message
Selecting "BBCode" shows the code and a size selector.

Sounds like you are on email but I have no explanation for not being able to type in the box.
