    Default Flickr cannot link direct to photo anymore?

    Flickr apparently has disabled direct link to photos. Say bye bye to Flickr.

    "The direct link to a photo file is no longer shown on the page. Per the Flickr Community Guidelines "pages on other websites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr." Linking directly to the photo file doesn't do this. "

    Any other photo hosting sites allow you to do direct link to photos, at least for sharing on CS? Anyone tried Smugmug, Behance, etc ?

    oh yea:

    The HTML code to embed a photo in a web page that you used to find on the All Sizes page is now only in the Share menu on the photo, to the left of the More menu. We now also include BBCode! (standard message board code)

    There are a few cases where the code may not be available: 1) If the photo is restricted. 2) If that person has turned off "Share this" or access to original files.

    The direct link to a photo file is no longer shown on the page. Per the Flickr Community Guidelines "pages on other websites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr." Linking directly to the photo file doesn't do this.

    My flickr is free version as well.
    What I did, just open up the image then right click on the image view the photo, and copy the link.
    Not sure if there is shorter way to do.

    I thought we couldn't get the direct link from Flickr since ages ago.

    You just have to go to the images page and grab.

    Even if you can't see that page for whatever reason, you can always hunt for the JPG link in their BB code/HTML code, etc and extract it out..

    Seems like a browser issue. When I use IE10 , the direct link shows as

    "http://www.flickr.com/photos/9729818104/sizes/c/in/photostream/"

    On Chrome, it is fine to copy url.

    I use IE is only when need to go to Gov sites, because they don't know anything other than IE..., most of the things won't work if you use Chrome or Firefox.

    i questioned a civil servant over the hotline before. he said that it's because Chrome's and Firefox's security for online payment isn't that secure.
