    Hey djguk,
    Thanks for these instructions; worked for me first time.
    One minor little piece of pedantry to help improve them: on my Flickr page the down arrow you want is actually marked 'Share'. Might be worth mentioning this (particularly as 'Actions' has its own down arrow).
    Cheers,

        In flickr make sure that it's the bbcode that you are copying and pasting into your post

          Same prob. Having grabbed the BB code in Flicker this is what it lets me copy :

          Man and Dog by timandlucy, on Flickr

          and that does not seem to produce an image in the post. Help needed please. Perhaps it is a sizing issue?

                    I've been having some problems with FF and Flickr too recently, unable to add tags, not all photos loading on my photostream. Works fine with Chrome though.

                            For those who have accepted the Try our new photo experience option and then discover that flickr haven't yet implemented the ability to grab the BB code, you can opt out via a <sarcasm>completely obvious button click</sarcasm>.

                            There is a post on flickr's help form that describes the procedure.

                            Basically when viewing an image in the new "experience" (which I have to say does look pretty good) you will see a blue Help & Feedback button bottom left. There is a down-arrow on this which when clicked displays an Opt Out link. Click that and all should be well again.

                            Please note that this behaviour is liable to change as flickr get around to reimplementing the grab BB code in the new format.

                                Well I for one would rather see a link than no image at all, and if you don't mind if someone else posting your image by following the link later it might be worth a try.
