How do you post images without running out of space?

Recommended Posts

Silly question, I'm sure. I see that many people post actual images in this forum. I ran out of the space allocated to me after about 3 photos, so now I only post links to Flickr. How do you do it? Thanks!

Hi Mark.  Not a silly question.  I see you already have a Flickr account.  So, here are a few steps to follow:

1.  While on Flickr, click on the image you want to post
2.  When the single image appears, look just below it to the bottom right of the image for the "ARROW" symbol (Share Photo)
3.  Click on the "ARROW" symbol and a new window opens called:  Share 1 Photo to:
4.  Click on BBCode
5.  Select the size of the image from the lowest drop down window. For example: Medium 800 x 550
6.  Then right click and then copy the already highlighted code that appears in the box above image size

7.  Lastly, paste the above code into the body of your Whatbird post.
