Hi everyone, this is Mitch, and I'll be your host for this week. It seems Flickr have changed everything yet again!! Can't those bozos leave well enough alone?? See below my photos for an update on HTML code.
This week's theme is:
There are so many different types of bird, small birds, large birds, water birds, flightless birds, singing birds, plain birds, colourful birds. I'm sure you all have some birds shots, so let's see your best ones!! Here are mine:
1) Sid The Seagull. Probably my most well-known bird shot, it was one of the first good bird shots I took with my first digital camera.
2) Male Chaffinch
3) Rhea. A flightless South American bird similar to an Emu or Ostrich. This one was having a nap when I photographed it.
4) Ringed Teal. A mating pair at the water's edge.
IMPORTANT INFO RE FLICKR & HTML CODES
It seems that once again Flickr have changed everything, and not for the better. When you now select a photo you want to use and click on it, it opens in it's own window, as always, but everything in the window looks different. You will see an area to the right of the photo with lots of little symbols. The symbol for the sharing codes is still the little box with an arrow coming out of it, but when you click it, you'll see some differences. First of all, it looks like the default size of the photo (as least on mine) has been set to 500 x 375, so you'll have to change it to 640 x 480 EVERY TIME!! (it defaults back to the smaller size as soon as you close the box). ALSO, the codes are defaulted to I-Frames, so you will also need to look at the two little buttons marked 'EMBED' and 'HTML'. Flickr have set the default to 'EMBED', you will have to change it to 'HTML' to get the correct code. And you will have to do it EVERY SINGLE FRIGGIN' TIME!! Because as soon as you close the box, it defaults back to 'EMBED'. I hope this helps!!Any problems, msg me on FB or e-mail me and I'll try to help. Good luck!!
