    Now, you have to do all those steps MANUALLY... isn't that so much more inconvenient? THIS is what we're griping about.
    Maybe they are tired of people linking directly to photos and not to the Flickr page... haha, nah. Can still click on ShareThis->GrabTheLink leh. Actually they were offering the new format for a while, and I think we were given an option whether to move or not. I moved, didn't like it, and moved back.

    I guess they're not giving that option anymore

    Hi, iirc, when i was updating my APAD yesterday and tried to "GrabTheLink", found out that it's the link to the flickr page (.html). not to the image itself (.jpg)

    Do correct me if i'm mistaken. Thanks!

    Hi,

    this is what i did yesterday:

    when you're viewing your image, 1) right click the image and you'll be presented with options for image size. click on the selected option and you'll be presented with the large, small or medium image.

    2)Right click again on the photo and click on "Copy shortcut" and paste the input in btw you [img] tags or "properties" if the former is unavailable, there should be a url for the image, without all the unnecessary html.

    that's for IE. When i'm using Opera, when i right click the second time, there'll be an option "Copy the Shortcut" or something along that lines which is faster.

    Both are along the lines of NM's guidelines. Thanks!

    We're all creatures of habit... Change one thing, feels like the end of the world... And that includes me by the way... It takes time to adapt, now I'm pretty used to Flickr's cumbersome setup... sometimes I forgot to reset the size and ended up copying the wrong link - place on CS, oops - go back and reset the size... *growls*...

    actually I find it pretty similar to the older format, where we go to all sizes, choose the size and then copy the url and insert into the image tags in CS. Now instead of copying the url text, we right click on the image and copy the image location and then paste it in the CS image tags. Isn't it very similar?
