Flickr picture display tool now integrated into Enfeedia 
enfeedia RSS feed publisher FeedBack ( 0) Enfeedia now integrates a tool that makes it simple to display a picture from your Flickr gallery as your item image. Simple copy the HTML code provided by Flickr for the picture of your choice and paste the code into the appropriate box on the entry form. Online instructions are provided where you post the item.

Enfeedia extracts from the Flickr provided code (1) the URL (address) for the image and (2) the URL for Flickr webpage where that image is displayed; that URL becomes the link for your image. Thus, using this tool, you comply with this Flickr Community Guidelines condition: "pages on other websites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr."

As background, any image you wish to include with a feed item must be online somewhere. At Enfeedia, we have chosen not to be a photo storage/sharing site but instead recommend you use one of the many fine photo sharing sites that already exist. Flickr is an excellent choice as it is well know that, among photo sharing sites, it is far ahead of others in driving traffic to websites, just as YouTube is far ahead of other video sharing sites in driving traffic to websites.
