did you guys see that flickr has a new rule regarding hosted images?
they require that your image must be used in a way that it links it back to the flickr site containing the photo page.. what do you think of it?

So in this case, can we post the picture and also the link as well?

You mean this rule?

"Do link back to Flickr when you post your photos elsewhere.
The Flickr service makes it possible to post images hosted on Flickr to outside web sites. However, pages on other web sites that display images hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo back to its photo page on Flickr."

yes you can..

to steal cpuer's code

something like this
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/linuxera/2031137336/" title="Pavilion by the lake - Kaoshiong by Linuxera, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2398/2031137336_6d2249d81f.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="Pavilion by the lake - Kaoshiong" /></a>

is fine... but its a pain to do it in forums.. unless html codes is recognised

Replace {} with [ ].

{URL="the url address"}{IMG}the image link{/IMG}{/URL}

eg..
{URL="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lsisaxon/151970592/"}{IMG}http://farm1.static.flickr.com/54/151970592_e8abd6890c.jpg{/IMG}{/URL}

huh? sorry dun quite get wat you mean..

testing here
{URL="the url address"}{IMG}the image link{/IMG}{/URL}
I cannot use [ ] otherwise it will recognize as the codes. I just added an example in my previous post. When you click on the image you will be linked to my flickr page with that image.

Eh.. since they stated "Do link back to Flickr...", not "Must link back to Flickr..."

Will there be a problem if we don't? ;p:dunno:

oh i know u can put the tags like that..
but i am lazier than u think..
flickr supplies the html code as a block to insert in pages

but its not suited for forum posting.. have to change that.. so its more troublesome..


How would they check? ;p
its possible to trace from which page did they get the flickr image or they can have web bots that trawl the net for 'naked' image links
but if there's no code going back to the flickr photo page on the same page then they would know..

This is not a new rule. It has been there for quite some time.

Hahah... forget about flickr then.. I use Photobucket. They provide the img tags also.

U can try writing in to Flickr Admin to provide vBCode tags OR
U can oso try writing in to CS Admin to support html tags

A bit OT here, just to comment that to add [ ] in your posts, bracket the chunk with [plain] ... [/plain]. E.g.

[plain]
[b][url=blahblah]blehbleh[/url][/b]
[/plain]
