    I've noticed on this forum that sometimes when I click someone's photo, it takes me directly to their Flickr page. How is this done?

    Using the BBCode link function in flickr, this will happen automatically.

    If you have the desired flickr image on the screen, you'll see a right arrow like this, click on it: Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 9.22.41 PM.png

    A popup window will appear, click on BBCode.

    Choose the image size (1200 pixels or less on the longest side works best in the forum)

    Copy the link text

    Paste into a forum thread
