Linking to Flickr

Awhile back I mentioned to some of my photographer friends that I was dissatisfied with the appearance of some of my pictures on my blog. I said that they didn't look as good in my blog as they did in Photoshop. Yosh's friend Tyson explained to me that it probably was due to Blogger's compression of my pictures when uploading. He recommended that I upload my photos into Flickr and provide a link to them instead.

I finally figured out how to do it. I'm hoping that this might increase my longevity here because I'll be uploading into Flickr instead of Blogger. Couple drawbacks . . . there's a 100 MB photo upload limit a month (for free). I figured that would be about 200 pictures for me. I usually post more pictures than that. Also, I'm not sure if I can make my pictures BIG like how a like um. Anyway, we'll see how this goes.

Did you upload these pictures to Flickr first? I wondered if there was a limit as to how many pictures could be uploaded to Blogger.

Betty, I had trouble publishing your comment. I already e-mailed you a response, but yes I uploaded to Flickr only and not Blogger.
