Isn't Flickr free if you allow creative commons?

Flickr is free for the first 1,000 photos. New accounts after that.

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],
Jack of all trades, master of none.
