    Default Flickr link back

    I know how to post an image from Flickr but how do you post it in such a way that it links back to the orginal photo in the Flickr account

    I understand the [img]xxx[/img] portion.

    For the front part [url=XXX], where is this XXX?

    Is this the URL when you view the photos on flickr (the one which show diff sizes)? I tried but don't get link back result.

    Just want to link back to acknowledge Flickr site for their credit in hosting the photos foc.

    Found it by trial and error.

    The URL will be your Flickr photo shared to public.

    example:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/41318009@N04/3923234690

    Add the following to URL /sizes/l

    The whole thing would be:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/4131800...234690/sizes/l - this should display the large size photo

    Put this into the [URL=XXX] above will work.

    For the [img]xxx[/img] -- use the small or medium size url in flickr.
