Evidently I am to dense to figure it out. In photobuck all I had to do was take the url and add the img tags but that doesn't seem to work in flickr. What am I missing?

Why must you hotlink? Flickr may have measures in place specifically to prevent that.
Host it on your own server and it won't be a problem.

Flickr puts an image over all of their images called "spaceball.gif" If you have adblock plus, you need to block this gif file, then right clicking and "View Image" will give you the direct link to the picture. Take this link and use it with the img tags as normal.

That worked. I had to use IE to do it, Chrome wouldn't give me the option.
