    There's another way to post images from Flickr that lets other Flickr users favorite your images or view them full size without leaving the forum to go to Flickr. This image shows how to get the code:

    13612463923_17048ebefa_o.

    The result looks like this (hover over the image, and if you're a logged in Flickr user you'll see options to view full screen, etc):

    <iframe src="https://www.flickr.com/photos/asabet/13037856123/player/" width="1024" height="768" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" oallowfullscreen="" msallowfullscreen=""></iframe>

    I just realized that this method makes the image completely unviewable in our forum app :(.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    We've been sort of discussing this in another thread too. If you post a photo like this from within a set, the little scroll arrows on either side will only scroll through THAT set. So it's a nice way to show a series of photos without taking up a lot of room in the forum. Post a photo from a small set that way and the viewer can scroll through the images in that set...

    Of course, the tapatalk problem keeps it from being useful to a number of forumites...

    however you share the images, when the image is that great.....it makes all the difference. It's not just a family snapshot. You've captured the moment, the joy...it's a marvelous photo.
