I just read an article on CNET about changes being made to the popular photo hosting website, www.Flickr.com. That article is linked here: http://www.cnet.com/news/yahoos-faster-flickr-photo-page-now-out-of-beta-testing/

I have frequently used Flickr to embed photos into my posts on Pacific Northwest Flying, but now with the overhaul of the site, it appears that we may not be able to do this any more. Under the new site format - as far as I can tell - we are no longer given access to photo links nor are we able to choose the size of an uploaded photo.

If anyone with more information can show me how to get embedable photo links off of the redesigned site, I would appreciate it.

In the meantime, I am exploring another free photo hosting to use so I can still post photos in my on this forum.

Okay, I'm going to make the switch because there are other things new with the Flickr site which are not very helpful.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Looks like a C170/O-300 installation, maybe even on a ragwing (I think I see a fuel pump). When did you get one of those, Jeff?

Good eye Eric. But that's not mine. Rather, it's the engine belonging to none other than Mr. Tom-D. I saw it last weekend and I just had to preserve the pretty view. Isn't it an absolute beauty?
