Ok guys, I'm just copy-pasting this from another thread as per Bob's recommendation.

Of course you can show your picasa images in the forum. But I think google prefers to allow only the resized thumbnails to be displayed in forums, with the image linking to the page where it is supposed to be viewed in picasa web albums. There you can view bigger versions if you so prefer and also any EXIF, if available. I tried to display the original large pics too, by downloading them and getting the url from there. But it appears that google is smart enough to detect and tackle that trick. So, if the intension is to show the uber large pics with all EXIF, then picasa may not be the way to go. There are lots of free hosts like imageshack.us, radikal.ru, photobucket, flickr... ... But if you can live with uploading comparatively smaller ones which link to the bigger ones, then picasa offers a really addictive set of features including but not limited to organizing your pics offline and online, quick-retouching the pics before upload, and lightening fast uploading (with automatic resizing or full size - whichever you prefer). So, it depends on exactly what you want. I personally have accounts in picasa, flickr and photobucket, with flickr proving to be the most weird. When I want to show large pics with EXIF, I use photobucket. In every other occation I worship picasa.

Here's an example of displaying images here and linking to bigger version in picasa. The picture is clickable, and will take you to the address where you can verify if this really is a crop from a 200 ISO non-macro shot with one point-and-shoot SX10 ;)

Code:
[url=http://picasaweb.google.com/ROY2K8.1/2009_03_06#5312438099409586002][img]http://lh3.ggpht.com/_ZDUzKshqlOc/SbmSTg6PR1I/AAAAAAAABVA/YQXi7TDtXMI/s640/cropped.butterfly-200.ISO.jpg[/img][/url]

This is what the above code does:

Thomas, could you add to your initial post that all pictures posted on the forum via Flickr need to link back to the original on Flickr's website. I see lots of users using just the [img]-tags and not including a link back to Flickr. Flickr policy states:

Do link back to Flickr when you post your Flickr content elsewhere.
The Flickr service makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to outside web sites. However, pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr.


If users don't include a link, the webaddress of the photo is changed, so it will no longer be visible (unless Flickr doesn't find out, of course).

thank you Bob for linking me to this thread... still having no luck...

here are the 2 options flickr are giving me as links...

1)

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/wolfsong2009/3540321332/" title="8 by Wolfsong2009, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2280/3540321332_b1655b4fb7_o.jpg" width="800" height="577" alt="8" /></a>

2)

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2280/354 ... 4fb7_o.jpg

number 2 works fine but doesnt create a link back to flickr which I understand I need to do which means I should be using number 1 ... Number 1 does nothing no matter what I do..

any help would be appreciated :(

I followed that as best I could Thomas... more than once... maybe I'm missing something or doing it wrong but it just doesnt seem to want to work for me. Like I mentioned.. when it comes to online stuff I am as illiterate as can be.


FINALLY!!!

Thanks Thomas :oops:

Almost, Wolfsong:

Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/wolfsong2009/3540321332/][img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2280/3540321332_b1655b4fb7_o.jpg[/img][/url]


If you forget how to link when posting a new message there's actually a hidden help page I find very useful. Just underneath the edit window and to the left there is a link that says BBCode. If you open this in a new tab/window you get instructions for how the tags can be used. (I've linked to the image section).

Hope this helps.
Jamie

edit: seems you fixed it!

TZ2, you forgot the [url=...]...[/url] part and messed up the image adress :(

Try this:

[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/httpwwwflickrcomphotos_caladanbrood/3562892728][img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3335/3562892728_744a3cb2a1.jpg[/img][/url]
