Flickr changes
« on: April 05, 2014, 05:42:50 PM »
For those who might have noticed that flickr has made some changes (again...), but might not have found the best way to share your photos yet: I thought I would list the steps I found that works.  There are probably more ways to do this (and might even be better yet) but this works:

After uploading your photo and you click on it to view it, you will see their new options on the right hand side.  One of the icons has 3 dots on it.  Hovering over this brings up the words "More Actions".  Click on this. One option in here is a box-in-a-box icon that is for "Download/ All Sizes".  Click this.  By default, the "Download" option is highlighted blue.  Just click on "View All Sizes" and you will be back to your old way of viewing and getting the image location for our forums.
Hope this helps.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

If you want to share through the new style (at least the new style I'm seeing!)

1) Click on the box with the arrow coming out of it

2) Click on the drawing pin icon (the plain one on the right)

3) Select photo size

4) Copy link and go for it...

I try to use the same way zubbuz says, but in chrome it wont let me select any size other than the top one on the list. If I go to firefox, no problem. Not a fan so far.
C&C always welcome. If you want to try re-editing any of my shots, feel free.

Strange, Bish, because I also use Chrome and the above method works for me....  :-\
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

I did this in Firefox, but I haven't tried it in chrome in the new scheme...

Whilst on the subject not a fan of the latest chrome either. It is now giving me notifications on my task bar, and no longer a stand alone program (I refuse to call them apps on a laptop/desktop)

I'm confused. What do you mean?

Zubbuz's method does NOT work for me, hence my post for others to follow if they wish. I tried that and if you see what all is included, it actually interferes with posting photos to our forums. I could eventually get it to work if I removed a lot of the extra stuff in the link but that is just too confusing to jot down here.
The steps I provided actually get you back to the old screen selection of sizes like we were used to.

I'm glad his method is working for some, but I can safely say it is not working for either FireFox or Safari for me. (I haven't messed with Chrome or I.E. in years so I can't vouch for that)

The obvious answer is: use whichever one works best for you and your browser.

That's really interesting - you are having problems with FireFox but I'm not. Bish is having trouble in Chrome, but Snapper isn't...


Rather messed up - I wonder if someone technically minded like Andy has anything to say on the matter :P

I just thought of something and I have no clue if it's relevant or not but I am on a mac, not a Windows unit. Might that have something to do with all this?  OR...is it possible that the problem lies within flickr's site?? (you know how some sites can have parts that work flawlessly for a while and then those glitches come up randomly?)

I can use the method Zub described on my Mac using chrome.  Just to add to the confusion!

Actually, I'm wondering what it uses to construct its UI....

Ie flash is slowly dying and therefore if you no longer have flash installed you are unable to use flash-based websites... I'm wondering if it something like that...

Chrome is linked to my google account, and since the latest update I keep getting notifications on my task bar. Just gets me, if I wanted to know about google's latest attempt to by something, I would look it up myself.

They changed things again, at least on my account.  Where I used to have choices between a paper clip, </>, and a pin icon (step 2 as described by Zubbuz above), I now have choices between "Link", "HTML", "BBCode".  I like this better because I don't have to remember what the icons mean!

p.s. Suka, use the BBCode.   :)
