How do you embed images from the new Flickr into a post on DPR?
Oct 3, 2013

I can't seem to figure it out, and a search turned up some old ways, but I don't see how they map to the latest Flickr release.

Once you have the size image that you want to post from Flickr on your screen, just right-click on it and choose "Copy Image Address." Then on the DPR editor select "Insert Image from web," and paste the URL from Flickr into the URL field.

Yeah flickr tries to stop you doing this, but you can by right clicking on an image in your stream and picking one of the sizes. You can then right-click on the image displayed and use our 'insert image from web' tool. You can also extract the URL from the 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' option in the share menu. It's a pain (and, apparently, against their user agreement rules).

Here's How
In reply to WT21, Oct 3, 2013

In Flickr, click on the picture you want to upload/display in DPR.

Pause for a minute to make sure it's fully loaded on your screen.

Now right click the picture and choose the size you want to display. (If you aren't shown the size options on a right click, then you haven't waited long enough.)

When the picture size you've chosen displays, right click again and choose Copy Image Address.

Now when you're posting in DPR and want to insert the picture, look up at the Task Bar and the last thing over on the right is a mountain scenery icon with a down arrow. Click on it and choose the first option, Insert Image From Web.

When that window opens, paste the image address you copied earlier.

It is not against their rules per se, but they require you to provide a link back to the original image on Flickr.
