As far as I know, Tumblr doesn't provide an embedding code. You could right click on the image and get its address and then use the 'insert image' button that many forums have to post them that way, but I'm fairly sure there'd be copyright implications of doing that (which maybe why they don't provide embedding codes) - I know I'd be annoyed if my Tumblr images started turning up on forums without any links back to the original post. Also, Tumblr may not like people using their bandwidth to repost images on other sites.

Yeah, it's just a blogging site. It's extremely easy to use, which is probably why it's so popular. You just have to choose who you follow carefully because so people can post so many entries one after another it takes over your feed (or maybe I should check my feed more often) and, as with all social media, there are some strange people on there

I'm sure there are lovely, innocent tumblrs out there, but in my experience it's about 90% porn.

I disagree, I find its great as a search tool, type any name or subject in and pics come up
cant see how you can do that with Blogger.

Ive finally figured Tumblr out,
the trick is to ....click follow ... to blogs with
subjects you re interested in, it might be the swinging 60s, harry potter, hammer horror.... Hollywood ....etc ..... get to follow 50 or so blogs.

The next time you go back to tumblr and sign in, say a week later, all the pics that have been posted to those blogs will be there... stacked up... you simply scroll down them all and save any that you like .

It brilliant really and a great .... searchable resource on the web .
