As you can see bellow I am using FlickR for photo storage and uploaded the resized photos exclusively for entry. I can only see the BBC Code and not the photo but the link works. What am I doing wrong? Bellow is a sample of what I am talking about.

Go to the share menu (the swooping arrow) and there is a BBCode option. This will give you a few lines of tags (see below)

I'm not sure if you want to use all of this or just snag the image URL(it's pretty small) as I'm not that familiar with Flickr, personally I just use photobucket. (BBCode is turned off in this post so you can see what the share option gives you)

I just noticed that there are different image sizes for the BBCode share. I linked the 75x75 option's code, the full size URL is https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7477/15150058523_b1a0cccc48.jpg

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! That worked! I had already resized it to the appropriate size and uploaded them so I do have to select the proper size. Thanks again for you help.
