I know some put the links in the description, but I did mine as Notes...

Good idea! But I think it looks better if you resize the notes to fit each image like so :-) www.flickr.com/photos/mlee/82203527/

I've done that for other images that I added notes to, but I thought when the note was close to the thumbnail size people might not notice the notes... To each his own I guess. :)

Minmax, doesn't this make it hard to click on the link?

Argh, it's impossible to click the links! Guess I'll have to try resizing...

Notes are good, but if you make them the same size as the square you can't click them -- try it.

Man thats right - U cant clickem!
If you make them slightly smaller (about 3px) it works...

In the corner, very small is the best, I think, but what a work!

I admire the Labor, it is very cool, I do prefer the urls, its simple, the note representing a link is simple too, but the note thing for me is too much work and very distracting when viewing a mosaic. I admire how nikographer put it together.

now i think the notes are kinda distracting, but still a good way to see the larger photo.

I wish you could make the notes themselves links... hmm... I think I'll ramble over to Flickr Ideas...

Interesting discussion with helpful tips - but how do I solve the following problem:

I want the link to be hidden behind the picture title, i.e. the note shows the title as a link instead of displaying the link itself.

Any ideas/suggestions anyone?

What's really needed here is a way to make photos imagemaps. Maybe Flickr will add that someday.

tschnitzlein: I'm not 100% sure this is what you mean, but can't you just put the HTML in the note? For example:

<a href="http://www.example.com/link.html">Title here</a>

Why not use fdtoys' links they give you as you do the mosaic, as I have done here in the photo's description:

@Jacqueline-w and tschnitzlein

You can do it...check my mosiac in the pool.

I use a greasemonkey script for Firefox and simply select the text I want to link from and click a "Link" button, it pops open a window to put the URL into then click apply.

You can do it this way also...

Create the note you want.
For the text put the following:

<a href="LINK_GOES_HERE">NAME_GOES_HERE</a>


Replace LINK_GOES_HERE with the COMPLETE URL of the page you want the clicked link to go to. Make sure to include the "quotes" as above.

Replace NAME_GOES_HERE with the text that you want the link to show as.
