    Right... this is harder than I thought.

    Anyone know how to link a picture from Flickr into a post via a phone?

    It's not just you, I didn't get on with Flickr at all. Mind you my personal views on Photobucket can't even be posted in public. Rather than store my images on a host site, I find Postimage handy as it allows you to access your photo library and choose, upload, and post it for you.

    Goodwood today.

    Ok, how do you select photostream. I've looked for it everywhere and I'm damned if I can find it.

    I used to use photobucket also until they shafted their users.

    I get on fine with Flickr when I'm using it from my PC and have done for some time but I wanted to try the mobile app rather than faff about with yet another hosting site

    No probs. The thing I really like about Postimage is it hosts pics, but you just upload direct from your pic library without needing to create an album or store uploaded pics in a second party site.

    Try it, it's only accessing the pic you want from your own storage system.

    https://postimages.org/

    Photobucket shafting people and limiting accounts until the ransom is paid is criminal, the blogs and forums that have been damaged are innumerable. The fact I see some of my same forum pictures still held in Google Images is just rubbing my nose in their 3rd party hosting rule.

    When you upload to flickr you pic appears on your camera roll and photostream.
