Now that I've been usig Flickr for a little time, I can report how to avoid the headache I suffered. The http code won't work if you copy and paste from the top left corner. The way it worked for me was to upload the pic to Flickr from wherever you saved it, and then left click the photo. Let that pic load and then right click on the image and select the size you want. Once that image loads, you'll see a choice above the image that says "Download xxx size image"(xxx meaning the size you selected earlier). Now, put your cursor on that selection and left click to download that size image and wait til a small window appears at the very bottom of your screen that allows you to either 'open', 'save', or 'cancel'. I save and then open. A new window appears that's a preview of your image. Close that window. You now have your image ready to share. Now, here's how you locate the http code to upload it to Stromtrooper. Simply move your cursor over the "Download the xxx size image" , keep it on that selection (I like the medium 800 size)that will be just above the image. This will cause a small popup window at the bottom left of your acreen with the http code. It should show something like this; All those dots are info specificily associated with the pic. Write this code down so that you can enter it into the Stromtrooper download window. Sorry, I haven't found a way to copy and paste that info yet. Once you have this code written down, you go to Stromtrooper and and click on that little yellow pad that Graywolf described. You don't have to put in [IMG ] at either end of your code....Stromtrooper does that for you. [IMG] means image. What works easy for me is to simply left click in the box where http:// appears and then type in farm9.staticflickr.........jpg. BTW...if you get "image not available", you've made a mistake. It's very easy to miss a dot....a number....letter...etc. Go back over your code piece by piece....byte by byte. Good luck and I hope you have patience with this. I think I've lost another chunk of hair over this with my frustration. I stuck with it and got'er done.

Pasted image doesn't show

I set up a PhotoBucket account, then pasted this in the post, but it doesn't show up.


I'm doing something wrong.

The item between the image tags is not a picture. There isn't a jpg or png suffix in there that you'll typically find. Did you copy the page url or something? You need the location of a picture, not a page.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Does Dropbox work? I've been around here a couple years now, never posted a pic yet.

I don't know why this is happening. Every time I try to add a picture I'm hitting the mountain scene. Right after I do that it kicks me off the internet and takes me to my home screen on my iPad..I'm thinking it's the iPad as I recently downloaded the new iOS 8.3.. You think? Any suggestions?
