    It's a hobby for me, I'm just using it to store my photos.

    a normal desktop ,......
    Select "Copy URL" and paste into the above web app in your favourite browser.
    This will generate the relevant BB code, which you can copy and paste directly into your thread on here.
    N.B. since it's already in BB code, just paste directly in to your new post,
    [/I][/QUOTE]

    Keyword, normal desktop that's a selection to get that BBcode.



    Thank you. It's finally sorted out.

    The reason I ask, is that on my phone, I do have the app. When I enter flickr web site via chrome, rather than seeing the site in a browser window, it opens the app, where there is no option to generate the BB code.
    Hi Bill
    Yes, my tablet seems to let me use either and doesn't force me into the app. I have just used the 'Copy URL' option in the app to create the following link:
    https://flic.kr/p/2fkvv5s

    As you can see it doesn't embed the image?

    Maybe if you can force the phone to use the desktop site then it will work. FB seems to do something similar and if you have the app installed it desperately tries to keep changing to the mobile site. As I hate the way the mobile site looks on my tablet I always go into FB via Chrome and force it to use the desktop site. I do use the mobile site on my phone though as it's just too small for the desktop layout.

    ... don't know why nothing works. Chrome & Firefox don't give that BB code

    Sorry - it's not for Android.

    Android's 'ES File Explorer' can access a Flickr account:

    Would it be possible for Ian to create a closed group for the forum members to post images to on Flickr?

    There's a Android Flikr app, Henry:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.flickr
    https://help.flickr.com/en_us/get-st...app-rJxw53XjJ7

    Whilst searching I came across this app, which looks quite promising:

    I can't see it in the Android Play Store, which would make me wary!

    Just testing at the moment, take 2


    Generated from my Google Nexus 5 using tools.sportscard.trade

    That seemed to work OK, and adds the self publicity link for the web app below the photo.
    I'm typing this part of the reply, in italics, from a normal desktop as it's easier than fiddling with a phone, but the initial reply and embedded photo link are from an Android mobile, as the link below the photo shows.

    Log into your flickr account on android, select the relevant photo and touch the "sharing" icon; three little circles joined by a couple of lines just below the photo.
    Select "Copy URL" and paste into the above web app in your favourite browser.
    This will generate the relevant BB code, which you can copy and paste directly into your thread on here.
    N.B. since it's already in BB code, just paste directly in to your new post, rather than using any of the photo icons.

    As far as I can see, the problem arises because the option to generate BB code directly from Flickr works fine from the full desktop access, but is absent from the Flickr phone app.

    I tried using the full access from within a mobile browser but it just opens the Flickr app on my phone.
    This approach may work if one doesn't have the app on the phone/tablet, or if you can force your browser to the main, rather than the mobile flickr site.

    I've shared from Flickr to another forum, on my phone using another website, it's a bit of a faff and puts a bit if extra text in the description along the lines of "shared via ......" Which is easy to edit out though
