[Official Thread] New version of Flickr's embed code

Flickr Staff

cjmartin PRO says:

Hi, I’m Chris, an engineer here at Flickr.

Today we’re excited to start rolling out a new version of our HTML embed code, with more visible attribution of the photo owner and enhanced features.

This new code brings the features of the “iframe” web embeds and the compatibility of standard HTML image embeds together into a single code.

The way we’re accomplishing this is through “progressive enhancement.” This means that at the core of the new embed, we start with the same HTML image tag that has always been on Flickr, and if supported, we load the more sophisticated, enhanced embed. If the “fancy” embed isn’t supported or something goes wrong, the standard image will still load.

We’ve already been using the new embed code for months on the Flickr Blog... maybe you’ve noticed? Now we're ready to roll this feature out to everyone, and we'd love your feedback.

When the new embed code is activated for your account, you will see only one option in the HTML embed sharing section:



The new embed code is exactly the same as the “old” HTML code, with a few new additions to permit dynamically loading the full embed if supported.

If the code is used somewhere that supports the “fancy” embed, it will load automatically and look like this:



If the “fancy” embed is not supported, it will always fall back to the standard image. This might be the case in RSS readers, message boards, and some blogging platforms that don’t support the Flickr javascript/iframe (yet!).

We’re really excited about this new embed code. As Flickr users ourselves, we love the attribution, title, and license information shown automatically on our photos, and we hope you will too.

Please share any issues and comments!

Thanks,
Chris

A CL discussion forum is not a for sale site.

Images on their for sale site are directly uploaded from my hard drive.

Sharing in a discussion forum is no different than sharing on facebook, or any other social site.

I use my iPhone 5 for posting on forums far more than my PC, and up until this latest update I could embed images via flickr no bother. Now I cannot select or copy the BBcode and it's really getting me down. The site also seems to be defaulting to the mobile view on the photo pages but the desktop view on every other page and I'd really appreciate a workaround as I find the mobile version utterly useless. :/

The Searcher PRO says:

cjmartin: Is there a reason the embed and other codes via the Share menu use an entirely different image URL than what we see from the "All Sizes" pages? Example this is from the Share menu:

c1.staticflickr.com/1/490/18854106803_5468755488_b.jpg

And this is from the "All Sizes" page:

farm1.staticflickr.com/490/18854106803_5468755488_b.jpg

Is one a redirect, or are you storing additional versions of each file? I ask because some weeks ago there was an issue of someone deleting images and the external links still showed them. I did a test and the classic "farm" URL showed the "missing image" file instantly, but the newer "c1" URL showed the now DELETED image for several hours before finally catching up.

So why the two URLs?

Please support embed codes for albums! Using the first photo in an album is a workaround for displaying an album but it has too many bugs, often photos outside of albums are displayed in the slideshow. Please please please make the new embed code available for albums as well!

Scarlet Pimpernel: Flickr's comment boxes allow for basic html, so the code is likely doing as they described, and switching to the straight html simple embed in those cases. Not much reason to brand an image with a Flickr logo and username when already on the site anyway.

Thanks.. I agree about the flickr logo as you say that is not needed on flickr itself .. Though I don't quite agree about it not being needed showing the username on flickr . I often add HTML code to comment threads where members get confused about who's HTML was added. Members often give me the credit for the photo if I add someone else's HTML photo. That can't be right !

I have asked this before. Why does it say Square when it's a Portrait or Landscape? Did it used to be this way before, I can't remember?

What i've noticed though where groups asked for Small (240 x 180) members are now posting Small 320 x 240 and Square 240 x 180. This is upsetting admins that have asked for Small (240 x 180) . I can see why group threats now look a bit Hickle-Dee-Pickle-Dee, and admins are a bit confused as to why members are now posting all different sizes instead of the size they asked for.

Untitled45 - Copy


Untitledbuks - Copy



I remember one member of staff say only a few months ago that they were making things across flickr consistent over the site..

Square 180x180
?


Square 184x240 "Square" ?????????
?

Small 245x 320

?

Untitled36 - Copy


Untitled380 - Copy


Edit .. I just found this screenshot . Members got used to Small that has changed to Square that is causing members to post the wrong sizes in threads .. I've done it myself ..

Vidterry PRO says:

The simplest solution -- for those of us who use actual computers -- is to upload to everywhere directly from the computer...rather than the image from Flickr. Every photo SHOULD be sitting on one's own system anyway (multiple back-ups must exist). Use those files, and not the one's uploaded to Flickr. Keep complete control of your images on other sites.

For those who use mobile devices which only upload to Flickr, and don't make user-sited backups...oops, sorry about that.

Yabbut you need an online location to host the photos. That's what Flickr provides.

No, the simpler solution is to learn just a teen tiny bit of HTML, enough that the offending tags can be deleted from the default embed code.

jimwhimpey PRO says:

We're going to be exposing options to remove the header and footer in the share dialog soon. In the mean time you can manually change the data-header and data-footer attributes in your embed code to "false". Eg.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" data-header="true" data-footer="true" data-truncate="80" data-context="false" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/jimwhimpey/17301499035/" title="Ride time"><img src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8749/17301499035_919959bc1e_z.jpg" width="640" height="427" alt="Ride time"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

would become:

<a data-flickr-embed="true" data-header="false" data-footer="false" data-truncate="80" data-context="false" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/jimwhimpey/17301499035/" title="Ride time"><img src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8749/17301499035_919959bc1e_z.jpg" width="640" height="427" alt="Ride time"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

If You change it to the following code it should work as before:

<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/guidosfotos/17643353040/in/datetaken/" title="Niederlande - Bergen DSC09683"><img src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8805/17643353040_b1b3c6bf5a_b.jpg" width="1024" height="682" alt="Niederlande - Bergen DSC09683"></a>

I have removed the script-part at the end and the data-flickr-embed="true" at the beginning. At the moment I can't test it but that should work.

You're right, that was hyperbole. I blog at night, after I finish my day job and tending my farm... and that's purely my choice. I've used flickr for a decade because it's easy and provides what I need, but also, every minute counts around here. If I put a dozen images in my posts and have to screw with this every time, it's meaningful time to me. I could be sleeping, or renovating houses, or hugging chickens, or some other thing that is far more worth my time than removing the last half of the goddamn embed code because flickr wants their logo on all my pictures... so you'll have to excuse the exaggeration. I do pay for this service, after all. And those minutes are worth enough to me that I'd be happy to pay twice the yearly fee on a monthly basis, just to not have to fuck with this anymore.

I feel the same way-- I do not like having my comments appear under the photo when I copy to the blog-- please allow the "old" html version.

Also-- these take much longer to load, so I must limit the number of photos I display as readers with slow computerers complain that my photos do not load.

Please keep the option to load the old way, or show how to eliminate the captions (I don't mind the flickr banner but it may also contribute to slow loading of the blog.

I really really *really* preferred the old version. Could this be made optional? Please, consider those of us who don't *want* attribution on every single darn photo we upload to a photo-heavy blog post.

And for those who want us to kiss someone's feet because we're all supposedly taking advantage of a free service-- no, some of us are still paying members. (Not for much longer, though, if this is the attitude we're supposed to expect...)

ETA:
Ok, now I see that there's supposed to be an option to turn this "feature" off, at some point in the future (in the "share" dialog box). That's good to know. I can only hope it won't be too long in coming and that when it arrives, it will be easy to select/deselect/whatever.

Unfortunately, the features you're talking about are not part of what you pay for. Everyone, subscriber or not, gets those features for free. If you stop paying, that will still be a feature you have access to. So, whatever payments you're making aren't going to support that feature.

I am not opposed to positive change but I use the HTML to my blog and with the changes I have HUGE white bars on both top and bottom of each photo which is greatly distracting and UGLY. Please please if you are doing this in order to get the Flickr name onto each photos remove at least one of the white bars and make the other smaller with the Flickr and pic name together or preferably back to the way it was with no edit to our pictures at all. This is NOT representative of the photos I took. I don't know if you are doing this to get more free PR for Flickr as I note your name is on it but if so .. please consider a different option. Already I have a Flickr box right at the front of my blog giving Flickr credit and if anyone clicks that OR any one of my photos they will come directly to Flickr thus providing Flickr free PR that way. Please please make some changes so these ugly huge white bars are not edited onto our photos as it is distracting to the blog post. Thanks for considering.

Prob with direct uploads is you do run out of space then have to pay there too (now both places if you use some from each way) .. more and more cost all the time. (for a hobby) PLUS Flickr or other host sights costs if paying. I don't mind paying and have for years but I don't want my pictures distorted with huge white frames. I put a Flickr box right up front on my blog so Flickr gets free PR that way plus if anyone clicks that OR any one of my photos it takes them right to Flick and again free PR for them so they should be very happy with that.

And the smaller the pic size the larger the white frame looks-- totally ruining a smaller size picture. I feel my Flickr slide show right up front is free PR for Flickr and should be good enough for that.

This is very ugly on my food blog. I also imagine anyone with an art blog will be very disappointed in the new change! It looks cheap and tacky. Is there any way to change it back or I will have to find another photo host. Very disappointing. :(

I posted to FB- ,
no author or license but a fat www.flickr.com ON my pic.

IF there are going to be changes I would prefer to see my name rather than Flickrs. I like the idea of the author's name, when posting to FB, so people know it is MY pic-
buy why the large Flickr logo over top of the pic?

Ok... turns out switching true to false was quick and painless, and things look as they always have.

agreed! I'm feeling like they need to get their advertising on my own personal site. I want my picture...not a picture with a Flickr box around it.

You're right, thanks for pointing it out Colleen! There is an option and I seem to be delete all if I have the pics on Flickr. Now I should save them on com so I don't have to have the embedded thing on Flickr.

Please put back the option where that frame and all extra info is not included!! I use flickr to easily share pictures on my blog, and now my blog looks really ugly if I upload any new pictures! I don't want this feature, please give me the option not to use it!

This is pretty vile.

Plus it doesn't seem to work at all when posting to some forums (just raw HMTL is displayed in the posts)

No doubt one can tweak the code oneself to make it work the way one wants, but why force many users into a situation where in order to get what they want they have to resort to this?

Why add layers of complexity when none was requested ?

Flickr really do need to learn the importance of offering users choice rather than just imposing their whims on millions of people.

They have barely started to correct the horrible mess that is camera roll and autotagging and yet introduce another partially tested, barely thought out change with inherent problems.

But I suppose I shouldn't be surprised after the serial cockups and technical disasters of the past two or three years ...

I've just seen the new look on my blog and urgh, I loathe it. Please give us the OPTION to switch this feature off - our images link back to flickr already, we don't need massive white bars or logos to tell people that!

Oh this looks awful and cheap, please give us the option to not include it, I pay for my account, i don't want to advertise for a service I'm paying to use... now if you want to pay me to put your logo on my blog thats another story, (i would say no thank you, as my blog is personal not commercial)but these are my photos, my memories, perhaps i should go back to google hosting, they don't pull this crap... I'm disappointed in your lack of forethought.

For the easily distracted... says:

I pay for my Flickr account too and would prefer to have the option to turn this off for my blog - I've always preferred using Flickr as a way to host my images as it keeps everything together and organised in a way I like but this has completely turned me off using Flickr. I will be hosting my own images until this has changed (if it does) which is a shame as I've always been happy to pay for their services and be part of a community that loves photos. However now I don't really see what I am paying for or what benefits I get as a paying costumer.
