Posting pictures

(1) Open flickr and go to the picture I want. Click on the thumbnail.
(2) Right click on the picture, one of the resulting options is a one-line menu. "Show all sizes" then a list of sizes. Click the one you want, probably the largest, usually.

(3) You should see the image appear. Somewhere above it you should see the link "Download the Large size of this photo", or "Download the Medium size of this photo", etc., depending on what you chose in (2).

(4) Right click on the link and from the resulting menu choose "Copy Link Location".

(5) Now when you're composing or editing your post and you click on the Insert Image link, what you copied in (4) is what you paste in the dialog pox.
