In the review template there is a space for the code for a photo from an online photo album, and also a pop up box which tells you that you can easily link from your PR photo album instead. How? I uploaded my photo to the album, chose the review to link to in the box provided, pressed the little chain link, got a message saying the photo was linked to the review. It wasn't. Tried this a few times, same result. Tried copying the code for the photo and putting that in the box, which has resulted in moving my thumbnail uploaded from the computer sideways and putting some odd letters near it, but nothing else. What's the technique please?

Sorry. Forget all that. I just did it one more time and it did link. Not deleting the above in case anyone else is tearing their hair out wondering why its not working. Gremlins about.

Hi petro,

Your browser was probably looking at the cached (saved) version of the page. To force it to look at the most recent page, do a SHIFT refresh (the curvy arrow on your browser).

For a great write-up on how to post pictures on PR, check out this link.

Happy sewing!

As a side note, I tend to open two browser tabs, and upload the photo in one, and write the review in the other. That way I can go back and forth and copy and paste the photo when necessary, and not worry about cached versions, or the PR pull-down menu of my photos updating.

Thank you Diane and Laura for those tips about the browser and windows, that may well save me some time on the next review I post. I have reason the be grateful to Nice Girl's excellent step by step instructions on how to get the code from flickr too. I used to know this, then they changed it all around and I no longer knew which bit of the very long code in the box would do the trick on PR. Her post has a screen capture with the right bit of code underlined. That really helped.
