    Hi, I tried this but it keeps telling me the file is too large. Am I doing something wrong? Trying to initially upload for my profile pic.
    Many thanks

    I’ve set up a Flickr account, taken a photo, uploaded to Flickr app on iPhone, taken the URL and appended the opening and closing IMG tags, but the image is not displaying at all.

    Any idea where I could be going wrong?

    Flickr can’t be linked like that sadly. If you want to use Flickr from an iPhone or iPad, you can upload images, but it’s a little long winded...

    Here is my guide...

    1. Open the photo you want to upload on your iphone/ipad in Flickr
    2. Press the share button for the image
    3. Press "COPY URL"
    4. Open internet browser page, type tools.rackonly.com
    5. Go to the box that says "get code" and paste your URL into that box
    6. Press "GET CODE"
    7. TAAAAADAAAAAA... forum code presented
    8. Press copy
    9. Go to forum, press Paste to post.

    I'd like to know this as well. I've tried Google Photos, then tried Imgur as that looks like its explained well in post #13 but all of this info is way out of date.

    When photobucket pulled the plug I moved to Postimage.
    Images can be resized as they are uploaded there (1024 x 768 works well for forum pics) then they can be shared and linked to the forum via the direct link using the image tag or alternatively the hotlink for forums can be used without using the image tag (though this can be borked on occasions).

    Postimage was straightforward and worked first time. Thanks GolfDuck!! I was so annoyed about this I was about to leave the forum!
