I am using Flickr to host my photos. I also uploaded a thumbnail JPG directly from my computer. My picture shows up in the Review Gallery, but doesn't magnify/shrink. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've read over several threads and still can't figure it out.

I could be wrong, but personal experience tells me that only photos used from your personal PR Photo Album will shrink/magnify.

You are likely copying the URL of the page where the photo is displayed, rather than the photo's URL (ends in .jpg). Flickr has changed the look of their page slightly since I took this screencap. The code is still in the same place but there are now email, facebook, and twitter icons rather than "share this." They have also made it so you can't copy just the .jpg URL from the box. You have to copy all the text in the box, paste it into another document, and then extract the .jpg address

Thanks nicegirl! I was just hunting for an old post of yours to explain this...I think you must be the resident PR computer guru on this topic!

I find it much easier to locate the URL (what DOES that stand for anyway?) on Picasa as you don't have to hunt through and select only part of the code.

You're welcome!

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. Tech terms are not very sexy!
