    unless you pay nearly £400.00 subscription.

    I know a lot of the forums I'm on , most use this for uploading pictures, so can assume a lot of those will be lost forever....

    What alternatives are out there for free or a reasonable price?

    Imgur is free. Not sure it's very easy to use for albums though.

    I have Flickr app and can't seem to find his to share an image. No where to pick up the URL code and the automated share link never works when imbedded into a post on here. Maybe I'm being thick :lol:
     
  12. Used to just right click the thumbnail and copy address from there but I just tried and it doesn't work.
    You can upload pics to your own album on here and link from there.

    Others have had the same issue. Are your photos public?

    Yes, I've shared previously on here. It seems to be the case that the link function doesn't work and if I go in via chrome, it opens the app, so u can't even force it to open the image in a new tab so I can grab the URL.

    So the share arrow at the bottom right doesn't give you the option for BB code?

    In the Flickr app, Share button > Copy URL

    Then open the image function on here and I get this;

    Edit; yes it's not working. Here is the code without using the image function icon.

    Seems you're right.

    This seems to be a recurring issue with the Flickr app. The work around is to open the pic in your browser and share from there. Crazy.

    Is the URL the same for both? Can the surely. Is there any correlation in the code?

    * can't.
