    uploading pictures

    I am trying to upload pics from flickr. I think I am following the instructions but this is what I get.



    What am I doing wrong?

    hi jannilee!

    it appears that the link that flickr provides is a link to a page, not the picture itself. there is an option on flickr to "Grab the HTML" which provides the following, out of which you can extract the image url:

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/53787951@N04/5405506201/" title="DSCF1129 by jannilee, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5259/5405506201_31b04074fd.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="DSCF1129" /></a>

    Thanks, Maverick! It worked like a charm. I LOVE learning new things - especially techie things. As a 63 yr old I am not a digital native but have always loved tech starting with a machine basic and fortran in 1964.
