ok, testing, testing...

This is from my new computer. Nothing seems the same on flickr from here.
Does this work for everyone? it seems like in one click you see the original flickr page and with one or two more you get the full size.
Feedback please?... This is from a new mac with Mavericks.

wren, what I get is first click, the flickr image; second click, full size; third click, auto slide show except that it's zoomed in so I don't see the full images. (but that could be MY computer!) Lovely photos - I feel so lucky to see these beautiful birds, many of whom don't live in my neighborhood.

Thanks Gzebear!
Mine shows the flickr image and then a large size but not necessarily the original size I'd requested, and then back to the flickr image.
It's less than satisfactory but maybe it'll have to do.

I'll hold off a bit before posting "for real" just in case someone knows of a work-around.

I thank you very much for your kind comments.

wren, when i click your foto, it takes me to your flickr page with that foto with all the info at the bottom such as your label etc.

Click the down-pointing arrow in the lower right corner & click View all sizes.
Then you can choose your sizes like you used to.

wooohoooo!

I like it when the picture clicks through to the poster's account - that way I can look at the other photos they have (assuming they want me to see them).

Thank you all for your comments. Booni, thank you for keeping me looking! The "view all sizes" option is now hidden in a "download" menu at the bottom right of the photo. Sheesh!

What I like of this method is that it keeps the reader's attention on the subject at hand. Nancy's kindness notwithstanding, I prefer the attention to stay on the birds, not on me or on flickr. :)




Yay, it works!
