Backyard viewing


Recommended Posts

Living on the outskirts of NE Scottsdale, our south wall of glass gives us this view.

Some of the visitors to our water and bird feeders...

For some reason, my links aren't displaying images in my post.  Can anyone advise?

I don't need to upload the actual images to this site, as they are already hosted on Flicker. I just need my links to them in Flicker to display here.

When you have the image open in Flickr click on the share icon to the lower right of the image. A window opens up with three tabs, click the Share tab and then copy and paste the link directly into your post here. You don't need to use the Embed or BBCode tabs, just copy the Share link and paste it in your message. Hope that helps.

I guess the Share link doesn't display the image here in the post, but refers the reader to Flickr?

Hmm, when I click the share tab after clicking the share icon, I get a link like this, minus the quotes "..."https://flic.kr/p/xpQ7gB" ...and it shows in the post as an image, not a link. I'm not sure why your link is different than mine or why it doesn't show in your post.

Good to know that it can be done!  I will try changing permissions.

This time I dragged the image to upload to the forum.  Only problem is, the image quality got degraded and the fine detail is gone.

Yeah, the image quality can take a severe hit when uploading directly to Whatbird, size limits can compress the image and quite often ruin the photo. Posting from third party sites, like Flickr, doesn't compress the image because it's hosted elsewhere. While there is no link showing in the method that I use, clicking on my photo will take you directly to the photo on Flickr. Sorry I couldn't help more.
