Hmm, you cannot take html-pages as pics.
But as hard as I tried, I also could not get the pics address-path from fotopic. They seem to have some Java-script running that prevents that.

Thomas,

Not sure if I understand the issue. Do you need to know the raw URL of the image?

If so, for instance, on page http://roy-matthews.fotopic.net/p41915370.html if you right-click on the page (but not on the photo) and with Firefox select "View Page Source" (or "View Source" in IE) and examine the HTML you can quickly see that the image path is http://images1.fotopic.net/?iid=yn0e36&outx=800&quality=70.

As set up here using the advanced JavaScript settings to retain the normal context menus, Firefox offers an even easier way to find this. Just right-click on the image and select "Copy Image Location".

That said, then as you know unless the copyright holder has specifically granted the right to download and save an image or to use its URL to incorporate an image into your own web pages then doing so probably constitutes an offence in law.

Bob

Hi Roy, I can't speak for the actual flickr address part, but any image you'd like to post must have [img]at%20the%20front%20and[/img] at the end. So your first link is correct in that respect, but the other two aren't...

Hopefully Thomas can resolve the actual flickr address bit. Maybe there's only some flickr image sizes you can do this with...

Yup, you have again used a url that links to the page with picture, not directly to the pic - that would be an adress with .jpg at its end!
It seems that I cannot find out about the direct link, but you as an owner can:
- just click on "all sizes" on your picture page
- under "available sizes" click on the size you want to show in this forum, e.g. the 75x100 thumbnail
- below the picture you'll see a line "2. Grab the photo's URL:"
- copy this line (should start with "farm2.static.flickr...")
- NOW you can use the [img]...farm2.static.flickr...[/img] markers to make the thumbnail show in your articel.

As an example here is the flickr-adress of one of my photos: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1158/525 ... 50c7_t.jpg
Just include this in and you're done...

This works with every size of flickr images, but you can do it only with your own photos. With the photos of other people you have to link to the respective url with [url]...[/url].
Just be careful not to use the original size here in the forum, because that would annoy visitors that don't have the fastest connection. What I do is show the thumbnail, like the 75x100 so that people know what to expect and than add a link to the larger sized variants.

Oh, and b.t.w.: the variant with "1. Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage:" doesn't work in the context of this forum. Must be too much html-code...

Hi Roy, it'd be great to read your views of the 70-300mm DO in a new posting in our User Review section if you have time!
