Having trouble posting pics (was using Imgur) so I opened a Flickr account, can anyone help me with how to post pictures from Flickr?
(sorry for the non-bird post).

I don't use Flickr, but I assume you can get a simple url for the page your picture's on? If so, just copy it, then click on the Image symbol in the posting window here (the little square with the littler square pic of a green tree in it--move your cursor over it and the screen tip will say "Image"). That will open a new window with a space for you to paste your url. Then click OK or whatever it says at the bottom of that window, and the picture should appear in your post.

The easiest way to share a photo from flickr, is to not use the "tree" icon at all. On your photo's page, click "Share", then click "Grab the HTML/BBCode". Make sure the button for BBCode is clicked, and look at the size it's set to. Usually medium works best. Then copy what's in the box, and paste it directly into your post. This is what it will look like when you have the share tab open:
