So here it is! You'll need a Flickr account of course. You can blog other people's photos this way too, but it's best to ask for permission first. :-) I'll be using this photo of wrapping paper.
By the way, last year I wrote a tutorial for blogging photos directly from Flickr, but you can only blog one photo at a time that way. Using the method below you can add as many photos as you fancy.
Make sure the "HTML" button is ticked for use in your blog posts. "BBCode" is used on forums and stuff.
The number in the name refers to the width of the image in pixels. You can see the width and hight for each size in the brackets next to each size. It doesn't mean that if you pick the 'Small' size your image will show up as exactly 240 x 159 pixels. The Flickr image code will always reduce or enlarge keeping the same ratio relationship between width and height. So if for example your image is 240 x 400 pixels, it will not suddenly be squashed down to 159 pixels!
Unless you really want it to, but then you have to do it manually! ;-)
Then paste the code from Flickr into the post. If none of the size options from Flickr fit the width of your content column, don't worry, you can set the width of the photo manually.
In the code you pasted find the width="500" (or whatever number it is) and change it to a larger or smaller number as required. When you change the width manually, the height will not be reset automatically. But don't worry, you won't need to get out the calculator to find out what size to set it to. Simply delete the height="whatevernumber" and it will be fine. As long as the width is set it's all good.
And that is about it - there is one more thing you can do with the photo-
First, though, I just thought I should mention that it is always best to use the whole HTML code that Flickr generates for our pictures and not just the img bit with the actual photo link. It is a free hosting service, basically (unless you go pro of course, but it's still quite cheap, yo) and it also makes it easy for people who see your photos, to visit your Flickr stream and see more of your creations.
From the Flickr Community Guidelines: "Do link back to Flickr when you post your Flickr content elsewhere.
Flickr makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to other web sites. However, pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr. This provides a way to get more information about the content and the photographer."
