i'm looking for somewhere else to host images. picasa just doesn't do it. i'm using photobucket right now for linking to in the forums.
is flickr a good choice? can i link directly to the image and not a thumbnail??
isn't flickr associated with yahoo now??

other suggestions??

i thought that google/picassa would make this available but it appears that they will not..

how do you do a direct link in html.. i have images online but i can't figure out how to do it.
for instance,, this is a shot on our website
http://www.texasbostons.com/rainbow.jpg
how do i make the image show up instead of the link.

TIA'
roy

Try enclosing your link to the image between the image tags [img][/img] with no spaces.


Otherwise you can upload them as attachments.

I am currently linking images from Flickr, I just choose "all sizes" and then the size I want to display and copy the link given. Here is an example:

Small :


Medium:


Large:

Roy - I just copied the link into the boxafter clickingthe image tag (the one with the 3 balls). I do have to allow scripts to make it work. Is this what you were trying to do?- Bruce

Roy - I think the problem may be you're trying to input the image tags. Just click on the image box (the one with three balls) and paste the link into the box at the top of the page. You shouldn't need anything with it just the link - Bruce
