Interesting but it looks like you have to do it pic by pic, like I had to manually delete 800 pics by seeing which ones never made it into a TR. :'(

Not sure what you mean by that. I'm assuming you mean adding a link? Just link the TR to the wiki.

If you're not sure how you can ask something fishy to do it for you.

You have to go to the master thread of trip reports. The open the wiki, on the top left there's a link that says "edit wiki".

Find the location that you want to add to (if your trip report is in a new location not listed it's a different process) in the editor (it will take a few minutes to get used to, have a separate tab open to compare what the wiki looks like to the code).

Then just add in next to the other similar formatted links
Code: [Select]
[url=your trip reports link goes here]username goes here[/url],

Any edits can only be done by a mod once the time frame expires.

I just figured out a way how to post photos from Google Photos. I'm not endorsing the site mentioned below. It's just what I found helpful...

1) Create a link to your photo
2) paste the link onto https://ctrlq.org/google/photos/ as instructed
3) copy and paste the "Direct Link (URL)" that is generated from the website into your post
4) type after the link

#4 was supposed to say
4) type (img) before the link and (/img) after the link- replace the () with []

I posted pics to my TR with Flickr, how do I make it that the link is not included with the picture and that the picture is not clickable?

Just saw you post now. That's what I did for my trip report.
All my pictures are automatically uploaded to my (unlimited) Google photos account with the original size, so that's the best option for me.

You can also change the size of the picture by changing at the end of the link the width (W) and height (H), like "w1415-h944" replacing the "w2400" that come by default.

If I delete a picture from Flickr will it get removed from my trip report?
