Flickr recently implemented a change in the way we connect our photos there with other services. This article in their forum discusses it. They’re adding some functions to enhance photo sharing to the more popular services like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Pinterest. But that’s coming at the expense of sharing with blog services LJ, Blogspot, and WordPress. There has been a way to start at Flickr and share your photo directly to LJ; that will end on March 25.
BUT… it will be possible to capture some HTML code from Flickr to paste into an LJ post. That’s how I’ve been doing it for the most part for quite a while. So I don’t expect there will be holes in my entries here. Fingers are crossed.
The Flickr forum post states that LJ, WordPress, and Blogger/Blogspot (the three biggest blog services, I think) account for only 1 percent of shared photos. I guess they’re just putting their resources where it makes more sense for them.
