Running out of attachment space, only fix was to delete old posts,:sigh: I started a flicker account.
Pasted the URL as the attachment (easy so far!) and get some cryptic error message. W T F?????
Being very IT-ignorant, I need help....:stupid:

Does anyone else have this difficulty?

Am I missing something obvious??

Is flickr one that does not work???

Is that why photobucket seems to be used by most VKers????

I know this will sound oxymoronic, but can you post a picture of the error message?

Flickr works fine. I think we need a sticky on how to post, as this comes up repeatedly.

The particulars for Flickr:

Navigate on Flickr to the photo you want to share.
Click the Share button above the picture.
Select the size you want below the window that says "Copy and past the code below."
Select the button for BBcode (not the one for HTML).
Copy the code in the window.
Paste the code in your videokarma message.

This code has all the tags for URL and IMG required by Videokarma to make the link.

Alternatively, you can "go advanced" in Videokarma and use the image insertion icon (looks like a picture of a mountain) to insert the URL of an image as an image link.

Thansk guys, I knew it had to be easy, I was pasting the browswer window link. It just gets worse for some of us.
