    @Dean @useless toys @etc ---

    Two ways - click on the SHARE PHOTO icon and choose BBCode; cut n' paste the size of your choice here.
    [​IMG]
    OR, and this is handy, click on the DOWNLOAD PHOTO icon, choose View all sizes,
    [​IMG]
    pick one, and then either right click to copy the code and put that in brackets here - Example:
    Code:
    https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4332/36979769862_5a065f2832_c.jpg
    would go in the tag like so:
    [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4332/36979769862_5a065f2832_c.jpg[/img]
    or, from the same page, you can just right click on the pic, select COPY IMAGE, and then just paste that here; no code necessary!

    Quick IG tutorial to follow.

    Are the pictures set to Public on Flickr? It not you need to change that and then use the BBCode from Flickr itself not the image button here.

    Also, if you're Instagram account is set to private no one will be able to see your pics here.

    Ooh, I like this! Thanks @toothaction.

    ^^^ Good point, Mark!

    So...

    For Instagram ---
    Extract the pic ID itself and place just that between IG tags:
    Code:
    Not https://www.instagram.com/p/Ba9-2WPnwjs/
    but Ba9-2WPnwjs
    And not https://www.instagram.com/p/BbvYyzpnHGs/
    but BbvYyzpnHGs
    Then:
    [INSTA]Ba9-2WPnwjs[/INSTA]
    [INSTA]BbvYyzpnHGs[/INSTA]
    
    Presto!

    Flickr mobile site hides it. If your phone browser has a "view desktop site" option click that and the download image icon will be there.

    Switched from Xperia to iphone a few weeks back and can no longer post Instagram images on here. I would always do so same way @toothaction described above too.

    Instagram image ID, which is Bga3Hubls , placed between (INSTA) and (/INSTA) , but with brackets instead of parentheses, just gives me this -
    Bga3Hubls/" target="_blank">Bga3Hubls/media/?size=l" style="max-width: 600px;" class="bbcode-image-resize">

    Is there an iphone setting that I have set wrong? Anyone else having the same issue?

    Thank ya mod squad in advance.

    ^ an SB member just clued me in and it's remarkably easy.

    If using an iphone, just paste the entire Instagram image URL (do not attach it to any other code), and once posted, it will show the image instead of the link. The forum automatically translates it into a media file.

    BOOM Shaka Laka!
    Thanks Again :thumbsup:

    Thanks for sharing JP. Sorry, I don't know much about any cell phone accessibility from the website, as it isn't something I use, or I certainly would have chimed in here, but I am glad you figured it out. You'd think we were moving towards an era of more compatibility with different technologies, but unfortunately, it seems the more ubiquitous its use becomes, the more these companies want everything to be their own [or nothing].

    I am just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing the issue lately where, when you click on a thread with unread topics, it is not redirecting you to the first unread, but rather the first in the thread. This seems to have started for me sometime in the past couple weeks, and is consistent across a couple browsers. Interesting though, it doesn't seem to affect all threads; case in point, I opened this discussion, and it did end up bringing me right to the end.
