Okay, I'm finally getting around to writing the Flickr tutorial I promised. This is for a PC running windows, but I think that pretty much any device will be similar.

Step 1: Go to www.flickr.com, and you will get this page. Select "sign up" and follow the instructions.

Step 2: Once you have your account set up, and are ready to upload, click on the icon at the top right of the page that looks like a cloud with an arrow in it. That will take you to this page. It is a box with an arrow in this picture, because I was uploading from my iPad.

Step 3: Click on where is says "Choose..." and that will open your library. Select the picture(s) you want to upload. If uploading more than one, simply hold down the ctrl button while you click all the pictures you want. After you've selected your picture(s), click "open", and you will get this page.

Step 4: when all your photos show up in the boxes, click on the box that says upload. That will take you to your photostream.

Step 5: To share a photo, click on it, and it will come up on a page by itself. In the lower right hand corner will be several icons. Select the arrow that swoops to the right.

Step 6: When the box of options comes up, select "BBCode". Select the size you want (generally the size that has 640 as the longest dimension is best for DT). Then, just copy the entire url code, and paste it into your DT post. You need to repeat that for each photo you want to share.

The final product.

Thanks to Rosemary for Tutorial above.
I have just a few important caveats to add.

FLICKR PIC POSTING- When on the Flickr Upload screen user has chance to change Privacy and Searchable settings for pictures, before upload.

I would recommend setting all still photos as "Only Visible to You" and "Hidden From Public Searches" This will permit only those pictures directly linked from Doberman Talk posts to be visible.

If listed as "Anyone (public)" (default) then once a viewer clicks on your posted photo, then your entire Flickr album(s) will opened and viewable to them. I have done this with several new members who have not only Doberman pictures, but family party & gathering pics in same Flickr albums. I promptly will send them a PM to warn about their privacy settings.

The "Hidden From Public Searches" setting prevents your pictures from coming up in a search which matches keywords from your picture titles. This is not as important as the Visibility setting, especially if you don't title your pictures on Flickr, but just use camera assigned index numbers.


FLICKR Upload User Privacy Settings on Left Side of Screenshot



One final note on EMBEDDING FLICKR pictures on DobermanTalk:

After pasting picture (or video link) into post window, you can crop all information outside the [img] and [/IMG ] brackets, leaving picture link only. This will result in picture itself being posted and not picture title, location and Flicker account holder's name along with picture. Always use "Preview Post" before submitting to make sure everything appears as you intended.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

FLICKR VIDEO EMBEDDING- Videos posted from Flicker, however MUST be set as "Anyone (public)" or the video will not be viewable when embedded in Doberman Talk as an [img], just video screenshot. This is NOT TRUE with videos links on YouTube, which can be set as "Unlisted" and still be viewable by forum readers, when embedded using [youtube] [/youtube ] feature. I prefer storing videos on YouTube because of this.

For YouTube video embedding, go to this DT thread link:

A test. This photo is set to Private (only me), and not publicly searchable. I just want to make sure it will show up here. Also, if any of you know anyone with autistic kids, who keep losing their toys, and then can't tell you which one is missing this was THE BEST parenting decision I ever made. I took a picture of each and every one of his "most played with" toys, and all he had to do was point to the one missing.

Just wanted to add an update.

Since I originally posted this tutorial, Flickr has changed their terms. If you want a free account, you are limited to a total of 1,000 photos and/or videos. If you go over that amount, you will either need to delete some of your photos and videos or else upgrade to a Pro account with unlimited storage for about $50 a year. With nearly 4,000 pictures and videos, and not feeling like going through and deleting most of them, I went with a Pro account.
