Embed Photos?
Join to comment
With all the problems going on with the uploader, I've been researching how to embed photos from Flickr and other sites in a page, and I found nothing. Does anyone know how to do that? Thanks.

Click Share on the page with the picture, and you can just copy and paste the HTML. I've thought about doing that too, but I like the idea of my pictures not doing that. Not that I have a problem with a blue outlining on pictures, but it just looks a little better to me without it.

Is it possible to embed from Brickshelf?

What blue outline? All pictures in my last three or four MOCs are flickr embeds, and there isn't any border around those.

Yes. Right click on the picture and copy its URL, then type on your page <img src=URL here>.

They may be purple for you because you have been to the URLs recently. But there is most assuredly a blue outline that turns purple if you click on it. Kind of like Google when you click on a link and go back to the same search page.

I assume that this outline varies, be it by browser or OS, because I am 100% certain that I have no line at all. Running Chrome on a MacBook. :P

Interesting. I use a PC, and because I'm oldschool, I use AOL (STOP LAUGHING!) and I just checked Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome, and it does not appear on Firefox or Google Chrome, so now it all makes sense. Happy Day.

Is there a way to make the pics smaller? When I embed them they end up being massive. Or do they have to small to begin with?

Flickr gives you a choice of sizes to embed.

<img src="http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/azazaza/TBFCC/Ambush2/1.png"; border="4" width="700" height="525" alt=""></a>

My images, for some bizarre reason I've long since forgotten, are sized at 700x525. If you used those size settings with an image that isn't, it'd be resized automatically, but probably come out blurry.

If you want it so they look small but have a link to the full image, I suppose you could try reverse-engineering MOCpages' default image links.

<a href="/image_zoom.php?id=(BIG PIC URL GOES HERE?)"><img src="(LITTLE PIC URL GOES HERE)" border="0" width="(LITTLE PIC WIDTH)" height="(LITTLE PIC HEIGHT)" alt=""></a>

I've never seen the need myself, but it should work.

Very simple really, above each of your pictures on flickr is a button called "share" click that and select the "Grab the HTML/BBCode". Check the radial button marked HTML and then select the size you want from the drop down box.

A list of code should be visible, cut and paste ALL that code into your MOC here on MOCpages via the editing screen.

Job done.

The code should look something like this

< a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ " title="name by you, on Flickr" >< img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/ _ _z.jpg" width="610" height="312" alt="name" >< /a >

(Note I've added extra spaces so that the code is visible).
