The code from Flickr that you need to cut and paste into you VTT post would look something like this
I use an Ipad and just confirmed that it works fine with Flickr. As the tutorial shows you need to import the image into your "photostream" in Flickr - then follow the steps to the point where the BBcode is generated for the image and then cut and paste that code into your VTT post.
Once you upload the photo, click to view the photo. Click the curved arrow at the bottom right. A box will pop up. Click EMBED and then RIGHT click on the link in the long narrow section, choose COPY. Come back to VTT, right click and PASTE into your post.
I don't know a thing about iPads; surely it's possible to perform a right click maneuver?
I have had issues with posting images that would swamp the thread because they were too large. The photo size setting on my camera is set to extra large. When you go into Flickr to copy the BB Code, make sure you change the setting to a medium photo size of 800 x 450. This seems to work well to stop extra large photos from posting and makes for a more pleasant experience for the viewer.

I’m at my wits end. I’ve been working on my trailer again. In fact I’m finishing it up. I’d love to post pictures of the build for where I left off but flicker and I don’t seem to be getting along. I can open my album I created ,I can click edit. It doesn’t give ma the option to add to the album. I’m using my iPad. Does anyone have an idea what’s wrong. Thank you Gary

Here’s how I do it on my iPad.
Once you upload the photo, click to view the photo. Click the curved arrow at the bottom right. A box will pop up. Click BBC code tab then push an hold until you can select the link, select copy. Come back to VTT, go to the advanced tab, then select the bbc tab. Push and hold and select PASTE into your post. (I usually use the medium resolution on the bbc code)
