Unfortunately, it seems that if I simply post the picture to my own ISP-hosted web space, I can link to it, but I can't embed it. (See my post at viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31980)

I see your embedded picture just fine in that post.
(and I see the link to it after the picture)

Note to Flickr users. Use the embed, copy the link, paste on the page, find the part that starts with "https://live.staticflickr.com" and ends with ".jpg" and copy/cut that, paste that on a blank line and add [ IMG] before the https and [ /IMG] after the .jpg NOTE: remove space after left bracket [. I had to add it to keep it from going into image mode.

Example
<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/123456777@N02" title=""><img src="https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg" width="1600" height="1200" alt=""></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg

[ IMG]https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg

[ IMG]https://live.staticflickr.com/61111/523 ... 34sa_h.jpg[ /IMG]

Now the image should appear when you preview

Note to Flickr users.
It might be better if your examples use a valid image - that URL doesn't work.

But I'm able to see the flickr image you included in your post at viewtopic.php?p=605648#p605661
which goes to https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/512 ... 858a_h.jpg

It’s amazing this forum is stuck in 1995

Being able to attach a small image was invented in the late 90’s and is a common function on all other forums.
