Tutorial on how to post pictures from Flickr into the Cricut message board

Ok, at Sir_Craftalot (aka Ted)'s suggestion I am going to post how to get the link code from photos on your Flickr account to be able to post multiple photos into your post on the messageboard... (does that make sense?? eek...i'm terrible at explaining things...) I am a nerd and actually took photos of my computer screen to show you the places to click... here goes

How to upload the code/link from Flickr:

1. when you are on a single photo in your photo stream, look right above it and click on the "all sizes" button

2. reset the size to a smaller size if your photo is really large (i had to reset to medium for these)

3. scroll down beneath the photo and click the link in the "Grab the photo's URL" box
4. Follow the same instructions Ted gave for posting once you get the link!! (at about 1:15 into his tutorial is where you would fall in with this link if that helps)
Hope that helps!! Feel free to message me on here or the messageboard or pm me with any questions!!
