If you have a Flickr account and want to display an image from there here in the community, Flickr provides the code for you.

Simply go to the image on Flickr that you want to share.

Depending on your version, you will either see a curved arrow to the side of the image or below it. When you click on it, a new window will open.

There will be an option to choose BB Code. Click on that. It will then offer you size options and will give you the code to add to your post.

The image will be displayed at the maximum size allowed in this community.

If the image you choose using this method is too large, it will automatically resize it for you with an option for the viewers to see it larger like in the example below.
