Flickr
 
Is there a way to embed photos for the forum from a mini iPad/iPhone using the app? I am on a tour of Kenya for the next 2-3 weeks and can’t seem to get the bb code for those devices to use in Flickr. Am I missing something?

I took this grab shot yesterday in RAW, out in the bush and it is on display using photo bucket. I find that photobucket doesn’t give the Exif settings. Edited in Olympus Palette.

Any suggestions please?

I have found there is a bit of a gap between Flickr and Apple Ipad.

In theory, you can upload to your Flickr page, but Apple Ipad is barely a computer, and only allows you do what it wants to let you.

But no doubt an Ipad expert will be able to tell you...…………..:(

Thanks for that Mark, I will have a look at the Apple community.

The only way Flickr presents you with a BBCode link is via the desktop site. Neither the mobile site nor the apps available for iOS or Android support BBCode. It's just the way it is. Use a regular browser (Safari for iOS) and go to your Flickr page then choose the option to "request desktop version" - or whatever it's called on Safari.

Thank you Paul for coming to my aid. I have been tinkering with your suggestion and so far no luck. I read on the Flickr help page, if I kept my finger on the browser at log in, I can go onto a new tab. When I tried this, yahoo threw up security blocks asking if I was signing in using a new device and it asked me to enter an account key. I guess they have had a few scares and want to protect my account.

I am going to keep plodding on, or make do with photo bucket for the forum.

Thanks for helping. Have a great day.
