Adding Flickr images to your blog post

Tom Raftery wrote a quick-and-easy guide on how to insert images in his blog posts. In this case, he uses Flickr. (I do, too.)

When I want to use an image in a blog post I use the copy of the image which is stored on Flickr. This has the advantages that:

  1. it saves me diskspace from my hosting account,
  2. it saves me bandwidth from my hosting account and
  3. it is easy because Flickr provides the code to use the image from their site!

Tip: You might like the Flickr Photo Album plugin (related post), but only if you’re running your own install of WordPress. (That means you’re not using WordPress.com.)
