Luv, thanks for letting us know about this.  I was wondering why I can't post a photo that I have on flickr.   :ecrolleyes

there were questions about uploading pix to flickr - you can download a flickr uploader and drag photos from iphoto right to it and click upload

still haven't figured out how to post an image either from iphoto or from flickr - can only post the link it seems

Nan, if you can post a link, you can make it an image by surrounding the link with the second from left icon to show the image, or third from left, for clickable image.

Above posting box, are icons:
You tube, show image, clickable image --- in that order. You can click on the icon first, then insert the link in between; or post link, highlight it, then click on the icon.

Hope that helps, let us know.  :ecsmile

Ok, I missed the beginning of this discussion, but here's how I post photos directly from flickr to the chat from my Mac laptop:

Go to your photo's LARGE size, but the smallest of the large sizes. If the photo is bigger than the screen, it will not post (if you see some blue sliders on the side or bottom, go to a smaller size).

(If you don't know how to access the bigger sizes, let me know.)

Control-click on the photo (is that a right-click on a mouse? I just use the touch pad).
Select "Copy image address"

Go back to Chatango. Paste (apple key + v) the link into the chat.
That's it.
I prefer flickr to Photobucket because you can post the photos in original size on the forum. But the originals will not post directly on the chat.

After much trial and error, and much gnashing of teeth, I finally found a good way to be able to post photos and word games on the ONZ forum, using a Mac, is to do the following:

1.  Use Preview in iPhoto to create a jpg image.

2.  Upload it to flickr.

3.  Access and Copy the BBC code.

4.  Paste the BBC code into the appropriate forum thread

Looks like the BBCode is what works for me as well in the new incarnation of flickr as is shows on my new mac (OS X Mavericks)
click here for my practice post...

Is there a better way to do this?

I'm currently on a macbook pro, using firefox.  I have updated my add-ons, as well as my FF.  I can get the cam, but cannot see or load the chat at all.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Hi Gasp.  I use Google Chrome on my Macbook Pro, if that helps.  Please let us know if it works for you.   :eclove

Thank you Tigerlady!  after i downloaded google chrome, i had the same results.  Looks like updating my iOS software did the job.  I can now see the chat on FF and Chrome.  thank you
