Getting more out of Flickr – Part III

SL Blogger Support

Flickr-time again! But, this will be the last blogpost in my series of ‘How to get more out of Flickr’, unless of course things change, questions arise and there is need to explain some more,  I may come back with another Flickr-related article. Which leads me to a different subject without trying to sound arrogant: thanks  for all the input and feedback I have received in private messages! It is of course always possible to directly comment to a post on a blogpost as this, but for all kinds of reasons people find it easier or more comfortable to do it out of the public. I will come back to ‘commenting on blogs and why it is not a bad thing’ in an article in the future, this post will cover  Flickr “groups” – or communities, captions/titles of your images and how to block unwanted individuals from your stream.

    hi! I’ve been reading this and the last two posts about Flickr on [SL Blogger Support] and I loved them! they opened up my eyes on many aspects I didn’t know about, since I’m quite a flickr noob lol I have a (hopefully) quck question for you to answer: how to share your flickr pics on your blog? just like you, I use wordpress, but it might be useful to know how that works in general, for other platforms as well :) take it as an idea for your next post maybe! :P thank you for everything and awesome job!

    1. Hi Sibyl, thank you for your comment and am happy you liked my posts :)
      About sharing/embedding a picture on your WordPress blog: when in the dashboard writing a post, open the post in ‘text’ (instead of ‘visual’, in the classis dashboard it is on top right of the blogpost editor) and it will show you your post in HTML. Then go to flickr in another tab, to the picture you need and in the share menu (as showed in screenshots in my blogpost) make sure you tick ‘HTML’ and then copy the code (it will be selected already). Then back to your post in WP and simply ‘paste’ the code where you want the image to appear.
      When you go back to ‘visual’ you will see the image in your blogpost :).

      As for other blog platforms, I am not sure how they work in their dashboards, but I assume quite similar.

      Hope this helped!
