Really big images

Warning to phone users: Clicking the image below will download a 23MB file.


Can I link directly to an extra large image on Flickr?

Hey Kalt,

Can you explain what you did there. I use flickr's BBC option, which allows clicking on the image to see a larger version--but that version isn't that much larger.

TIA
I keep making protein shakes but they always turn out like margaritas.

Apparently so, but you might want to warn people that they're clicking through to a 23MB file!

From Flickr's single image view, click the 'Download this photo' icon in the lower right then select 'View all sizes'.

Click on 'Original' then right click the image that loads and select 'Copy image URL'.

Paste URL into your editor window on OH.org.

Go back to Flickr and select the image size that you want to use for the inline preview, I used Medium800. Right click that image and 'Copy image URL' again.

Paste that URL into your editor window too.

The bbcode format for getting it to work is:

Code: Select all

[url=PASTE URL OF LARGE IMAGE HERE][img]PASTE URL OF SMALL IMAGE HERE[/img][/url]
For bonus points try to find the tent.
