Trying different formats for embedding photos.....

"embed" code:
<a data-flickr-embed="true"  href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/153331443@N04/35570992733/in/album-72157684621839693/" title="IMG_1776.JPG"><img src="https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4348/35570992733_2c12a83a65_c.jpg" width="800" height="600" alt="IMG_1776.JPG"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Old Philosopher:
The Windows App doesn't let you organize your pix. You must do that on the Flickr site. But the link codes generated by the App are clean. The codes generated by Flickr carry a lot of extraneous stuff that must be manually edited in a post. A real PITA.  But for quick uploads from a camera or HD and sharing, the Win app is seamless.

Flickr has complex organizational tools, and lot of editing capability. Creating Albums, Collections (of photos/albums) is pretty simple, allowing drag-n-drop moving of photos and albums into collections, as well as sorting features.

A free account is 1 Gb storage.The space used is dependent upon the size of the photos uploaded. The system also automatically flags your photos with copyright protection.

Going to try my flickr experiment here.



Ok, it looks like it works but you have to strip a lot of crap off the URL to just get the stuff between the IMG tags.

I ran into the same thing, PW. If you are running Windows (8, 8.1 or 10) try using the Flickr App from the Windows Store. Works the dream, and doesn't pick up all that extra code. The only down side is you need to get into your Flickr account to move stuff around into albums or collections.
