First off, excuse me if this has been covered here before - I just did a search but couldn't find the info I need.

I have both a Fotki and a Flickr account, and most of the time I use Fotki for pics I post here, but once in a while I have a pic on Flickr that I'd like to post. When I bring up the pic on Flickr, there's a "share" box that has a link, a BB code, and an HTML code. I've tried each of those - both in the icon from the toolbar above and in the body of the message - without apparent success.

Thanks for any help.

looking at flickr, you can only hotlink photos of those that offer 'Original' as the size

in Firefox, right-click and choose 'copy image location', then here press IMAGE box and paste (ctrl and v key (ctrl-v))

of course, you might want to resize to 800x600 BEFORE you upload to flickr.
if you use, bleah, Internet Explorer, right-click the image and choose 'original', then right-click image and choose 'properties', in the URL tag, right-click and choose 'select all', right-click again and choose copy. then here press the image button and paste (ctrl-v). (ugh, ie is so messy).
