A few years ago I created a tutorial on how to make an image gallery. Lately, I have been receiving a lot of questions about how to create an image gallery on your blog using images from Flickr.com. The process is a little different since you can’t just right-click on the image like you can on many other sites.
Today, I will walk you step by step on how to get your image links, so you can copy and paste them into the table you create for your image gallery (or really any time you need this url).
Step One: Open your Flickr.com account. (I don’t really use Flickr much myself, so my Photostream is bare.)
Step Two: Click on the image you want to add to your gallery.
For those of you following my image gallery tutorial, you want to copy and paste the link at the top of the page into the table where it says “https://yourprojecturl.com”.
Step Three: Click on the three little dots in the corner. A large menu will pop up.
Step Four: Click on ‘view all sizes’.
Step Five: Choose the size you want to have displayed in your image gallery. For a uniform look you can click on ‘square 75’ so all your images will be exactly the same size. You can also choose ‘thumbnail’. (This second option will make your gallery look similar to mine with each image being a different size.)
Step Six: Right click on your image. Select ‘copy image URL’. Paste the code you copied into the table where it says https://yourimageurl.jpg.
Following is how my code would look for my particular image to give you an example:
<td align=”center” width=”25%”><a href=“https://www.flickr.com/photos/87452534@N04/11947579823/” target=”_blank”> <img src=“https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3679/11947579823_954dc00803_t.jpg” /><br>How to Make Easy Paper Snowflakes</a></td>
And here is how it would look in the gallery for that one image:
