Thanks Annie,

I have been wondering about the value and ease of use of Flickr for my photos as I tend to share a lot of photos on a lot of different sites.

I spent yesterday setting up my Flickr account, uploading photos and sorting them into albums and this morning it took a couple of tries but yes I did succeed in using Flickr on a post, once I actually read the instructions properly, and have done my first post using this. Yes, it is easy and thank you again Annie!

Does it make any difference if you use an iPad? If it does can you please explain?
