You just did.  ;) (In the quote) In case you ever forget how to do it, just quote a post that has a renamed link and see how it's done.

I've updated the original post to reflect some things that have changed in the last two and a half years:

- Sizes now work differently
- Photobucket no longer works as a host
- Flickr screenshots are updated to the current interface
- The process of embedding a private photo is now (somewhat) simplified

I misread your first post.

That's what I ended up doing, but that's annoying when they are already hosted.
