    Default How to get the static Flickr URL

    Hi team

    I hope I'm not the only one having this pain.
    I always share my pictures in this forum by pasting the static Flickr pointers (for example http://farmX.staticflickr.com/2918/1...25d21b3d_o.jpg).
    Flickr recently changed their site format and I find it very difficult to find a pointer to this. I actually had to open the HTML source file to get this information.
    If this is not your case, do you mind sharing the steps you follow in your browser to get this? (IE or Firefox).

    Regards and Thanks!

    Enrique

    I struggled with linking to the new Flickr too. I am not sure if you specifically want a "static" link, but this is what I did to post my last image:

    1 - clicked on the "share" icon,
    2 - then the "pin" icon
    3 - selected size and then
    4 - selected & copied the code.
    5- Posted the code directly in the body of my forum post.

    Only think that sucks is that there is no more direct link to image on Flickr or the poster's Flickr page

    Wow. Perfect. Works like a charm.
    Just tested this in with a new post today.

    Very much appreciated Mr D Runmonty for taking the time to document this for me and the rest of us here!

    One question Run, can I still view my "Original Size" image on Flickr? I cannot figure out how to do it.

    I don't know how to view, but to download - you click on the "..." (3 dots) icon on the right and then choose "download / all sizes" choose the size and then "download"

    Just had another look. After doing the steps above, instead of choosing download, click on "view all sizes" and it will take you to the old view all sizes page
