    Thanks so much! How did you do that?

    If you right click on the picture (or click holding down the control key if you are using a mac) you can select, “open picture in new window.” When the picture opens in the new window you can copy the url from the address bar.

    That’s not exactly how I did it, but it would have been if I would have had my thinkin’ cap on.

    Actually, at this point I can only confirm that this way works with a mac using safari, so just in case, another way to do it is to go to the flickr page for the photo, select the “all sizes” option, pick your preferred size and when it gives you the download link, you just copy the url that link points to. That method should work no matter what you are using.
