I have given up writing reviews because I cannot get my pics from a host site into my reviews. I know that everyone else seems to be able to do it. I know that I should be able to do it, too. I know that someone has given the directions at least one hundred times but it just is a true frustration for me. When I go to Flickr and right click on my photo I only get the option of "Copy Link Location" and PR doesn't like that. So there I sit. No one reads a review without a pic and I'm not going through that much time and effort for nothing. I'd rather be sewing.

I make one or two items a week but have not reviewed anything for over a year until the Fabric Stash contest came along. I thought I'd try again for that, but the frustration has gotten the best of me again. Anyone else have these troubles? Anyone else figured this out?

Thanks for listening. Guess I'll go eat worms.

I clicked on the "you" tab at the top and then on photostream. Then I clicked or doubleclicked on the photo to get in on the black screen then clicked on the |_ with the arrow at the bottom right. From there I ran into problems and I am not sure why. I copied and pasted the link that came up and it worked fine as the pattern URL but did not work (same URL) for the picture. So, I would suggest that if it will not work that you do it the long way that I usually do -- Click on HTML and BB Code and copy and paste the entire thing into the place where it asks for the picture. Then delete everything, including quotes up to where it says:

http://farm. . . . . . . . . . . .jpg then everything after jpg, including quotes. This is the way I usually do my reviews so that I do not have to show my entire photostream. Won't know until I try it with the new Flickr if it shows it or just the one photo. Let me know if this does not work and I will try it later after I take my pictures and upload to Flickr. Usually I then click on preview but for some reason my computer takes me to a window that uses "about.com" so I had to click on Save as a WIP and not show then go back into My Reviews on the left side of the page in the red section to see if my link works. Could be because I did not fill in the required info as I was just doing a test.

Went in and started a review but couldn't finish because we have to leave. In "My Reviews" it showed a camera instead of the picture but when I pulled up the WIP, it showed where the thumbnail appears on the review and when I clicked on it, it came up as a single picture. I'll do some checking later when we get back, but this should help you enough to get your review done. Just remember to delete everything, including the quotes, up to the second http (farm) and after jpg, including quotes.

Hi Lizz,

I have a Mac notebook and here's what I did to open a photo from Flickr in a separate browser window, which is what may be copied and pasted to add a photo to a review:

1. Selected the photo
2. Held down the Control key while selecting the touch pad, then selected Open Image in New Tab from the pop-up window. The new window will have it's own URL to copy and paste.

Maybe on a PC, is it click on the photo, then right mouse click to get a full pop-up menu?

I feel your frustration. I am fairly new to Flickr and have done only one review so far, ready to do more. My review showed up with the whole set, not photostream, but I only wanted one photo. I researched and made notes, and I believe this will work to post one photo:

1. Click on the photo from the photostream and you will get the slideshow.

2. Click on Actions, which are the 3 dots on the bottom right.

3. Choose View All Sizes.

4. Right click on the photo and choose Properties.

5. A box will come up with the jpg. URL which you copy and paste into your review.

Good luck to us both!

I am so excited about your new site! I am sure it must be full of goodies suggested over the long haul.
I have a Mac, itouch and Mac Mini. If you need any testing on those devices let me know. I use iOS 10.6x but just ordered a new MBA yesterday. Also have a Win 7 laptop and Win XP. Barely used but they sometimes can lend insight if a problem surfaces.
If you need more help testing let me know.
I'll see if I can find your original message.

sorry to ask here, but how do I post a review?
I am a member and still am confused about this, I have only posted one review and now can't remember how.
Thanks,
