Updated browser on work laptop so can now do this from it as well. But, when I preview, the image looks huge in the screen. Do I need to size images before posting this way?

I am not sure how it works these days as I haven't used Flickr for posting for a long time. You might shoot Nicole a PM and ask her as she uses Flickr for most of her posts.

For web display on any social media, I always resize my photos. I set the dpi at 72 and then set the long side at 1600 pixels. It's random--no reason for it really, and there are probably better sizes (especially for Facebook). But these numbers seem to keep file sizes well under 1MB.

 

When you choose to share via the BB code on Flickr, Flickr should give you several size options in a dropdown menu--just choose the size you want. I like to see photos large, so I usually choose "Large" with the long side at 1024 pixels, which seems to display nicely in our threads.

No problem--I hope this answers your question adequately. It's what I do, but someone else may have a better method or better explanations for why doing it a certain way is more effective. Lots of different ways to get to the same place!

Well, let's just test your theory. This was a test shot when I bought my flash, so seems appropriate for a test post ha ha.

Looks pretty good, I'd say. What do you think?

I think that did the trick, thanks. Was just tired of soft images when I posted. And am now remembering how amazed I am at the modern flashes! Off to do site visit and take some photos. For work dangit, not sure I'll have time for any fun.

Here's a weird one. Using my iPad Air tonight. iOS 10.3.2. Posting images using Flickr BBCode. Normally when I want to copy a URL I press on the screen until I get a pop up with options including select, select all. Choose select all, then copy and I'm good to go. But with the Flickr BBCode I don't get the options. I get lookup, copy, and share, and I have to manually drag the cursor to copy the entire URL. And that is a PITA. Anyone know of a workaround? Tried using my folio keyboard, no bueno. Tried URLs from other sites and got the options I usually get. At a loss.
