*whimper* help me! Who uses flickr to add photos to their blog? I have the free version. lots of pics to share, but no idea how to do it simply. i know how to do it the looooooooong roundabout way, which i refuse to do. i do not have time. help me....bloglines is being a butt, meaning i cannot even look at fellow bloggers i know use flickr (like Laura and Cristi, but i bet they pay for flickr)

You > Your Account > Extending Flickr

Under "Your blogs" you should be able to add blogs by clicking an edit link or something. After you add it, you can post any picture to your blog by clicking the "Blog This" button on the picture's page and choosing the blog to which you wish to post.

If you have any questions, just email me or something.

I, of course, don't pay for my flikr account. But I insert them differently than aidje. Email me at rkbezzie at gmail dot com if it aidje's way doesn't work for ya!

I don't know if I do it the "long roundabout way" but it this works for me because I like to get the code and resize the photos on my blog myself:

1) go to photo that you want to blog
2) click on the "all sizes" button above the photo
3) you can choose from any of the available sizes (though I just pick one and resize later)
4) scroll down and find the box that's labeled "1. Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage"
5) copy the text, paste in blogger
6) tada!

(I once I paste it in, I usually do crap to the code that change the photo dimensions, make the photo open in a new window when it's clicked, align it with text if I want text to wrap around it, and so on. But you don't need to do any of that to make it work.)

Come to think of it, this probably is the roundabout way. There's also a "blog this" button that's probably faster. I've never used it.

This worked for me when I had free Flickr and now that I have not free Flickr.
