    What I am saying is, you're close but there is too much information with the process you used.

    While we are here...

    Go to the rock photo that I posted and touch it, then touch it again and tell me what you see.

    Well, I excell at idiocy, sir, so this may indeed be doable. No "copy" option appears. When touched to be isolated from main flickr gallery, there are the five icons below. The only one allowing any of these actions is the right arrow looking thingie.

    Sorry, I just don't know how your system works.

    This is what I was hoping you would see.

    There are several ongoing threads about how to post pix. You could start by reading them.

    Learn to make your pictures smaller.
    About 900-1100 pixels wide.

    There are free downloadable Photoshop alternatives that do this.

    Then you can upload a couple at a time and they wont totally plaster someone's screen in over-size fashion.

    Flickr offers photo resizing. When you click on the "Share" arrow, there's a menu to choose the size, and tabs to select the format of the link.
