@Earthian I think the step which is missing is to first create a gallery on Safaritalk and upload the images to it which you want to use. Then the steps I outlined should become clear.
Posting images in the text.

My bad. I should have made it clear that the instructions applied to an image in a Safaritalk gallery.

When you click the ‘share this photo’ icon, copy the BB code, following Flickr’s rules you should then paste the full code into your post so that the title of your photo appears as a link back to the photo on Flickr followed by your Flickr name as a link to your Flickr profile. If you copy the code and just paste it straight in to your post, it will put the title alongside the photo as follows
This really doesn't look good, so what you need to do is after you paste in the code insert the cursor at the start of the title and press enter, the title will then appear underneath the photo as follows
When naming my photos on Flickr I often for convenience use the ampersand ‘&’ rather than type ‘and’ however this causes a problem when I want to post my photos on ST. When you copy the BB code the ‘&’ is changed to ‘&’ and this is what will then appear in the photo’s title. To correct this you could delete the photo from your post go back to Flickr edit the title changing the ‘&’ to ‘and’ then having entered the new title copy and paste the new BB code into your post. However you don’t need to do this, all you actually need to do is edit the photo title in the original BB code that you’ve pasted in your post, simply delete the ‘amp;’ leaving the ‘&’ or change it to ‘and’ whichever you prefer.
You can in fact if you want to change the photo title in the BB code entirely so that it’s completely different to the original title that’s on Flickr and the link will still work. It’s unlikely that you’d want to this but you might decide after you’ve copied the code that you want to rephrase the title, perhaps change or add a word, so you can do that without having to go back and change the original title on Flickr and copy a new code.
If you just want the title to appear but not your Flickr name, after pasting the BB code delete the whole of the last part that starts with by [url=https://www.flickr............
Having done that if you don’t want the title to appear either, because you want to type in a new title that isn’t a link to Flickr, then with the cursor select the title, just the text and delete it from the BB code. You can also extract the URL from the code, but then you need to insert the URL as you would if posting a photo from the galleries here on ST, the result is the same but it takes slightly longer.
Remember you can experiment with posting and positioning photos or videos or inserting links, changing font colours, anything you’re not entirely sure how to do without actually having to post anything just keep using Preview Post. If you use Word to write your reports when you copy the URLs (or BB codes) for your photos, videos and links paste them into your Word document and save them there. You can then experiment with posting your photos etc until you’ve got the hang of how to do it, once you’ve worked out how to make photos appear exactly how you want them to, you can then cancel your post knowing that the URLs are all saved for when you need them. Also if everything you need for your post is saved in Word you won’t lose anything if you experience internet problems when you’re trying to post as sometimes happens.
I hope all of this makes sense
If you want to centre the photos use the Center Text button and centre the codes before you click preview as this is easier than selecting the photos and centring them afterwards.
Also when you copy the BB codes from Flickr you need to pay attention and make sure it is set on large if that’s what you want, quite a few times I’ve clicked preview and discovered that one photo is smaller than all the others. Having to go back and copy it again the right size is an annoying waste of time, for some reason when I copy the codes sometimes it is set on large and sometimes it’s always on medium so it’s an easy mistake to make.
