    I have set up a flickr account and activated the plug-in.

    How do I insert pics from flickr into my blog and are they capable of doing text wraps?

    Thank you.

    I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but I don't use a plugin. I just customized the "blog this" template in my flickr account so the text would wrap around the image with some nice CSS padding. Then I click the "blog this" button/link above the photo I want to add to a post. A drop down menu asks me which blog, and I select my blog, then type my entry and submit.

    I do have to go into wordpress admin and assign the post to the right category and remove extra line breaks if any, but it's quick and easy.

    Here's an example entry of what it looks like: http://kerflop.com/2006/10/16/flickrness/

    How do you normally just insert an image from flickr? Do they work together easily? For some reason I am having trouble figuring this out.

    Also is that the easiest way to achieve text wrapping?

    Thank you guys!

    They work together easily.

    I've had a Pro Flickr account forever, so I'm not sure if this is all available on the free version. I think it is.

    Go here: http://www.flickr.com/blogs.gne and add/configure your blog.

    When that's done, you can blog any public photo you see on Flickr. When you're looking at a single photo, for example, http://www.flickr.com/photo.gne?id=23754, you'll see a "Blog This" button above it.

    Note: If you don't see the "Blog This" button, you probably need to make the photo public (click "edit" next to the privacy indicator under "Additional Information" on the photo's page).

    Click the "Blog This" button for the photo you want to post. If you've set up your blog, you can post immediately by adding a title and body for the post. There's a link to your blog as well so you can check that the entry looks OK.

    You can set up as many blogs as you like. :)
