    Posting Pictures With IPad?

    I often browse our site with my iPad due to its convenience, but find that posting pictures is impossible for me, at least. I can browse my photo library, but cannot drag them to the attachment field.

    Am I doing it wrong or is there a better way?

    Same issue here, I end up going to a "normal" computer to post photos to any website, not just here.

    To go one step further the other way if you download a .pdf file to an Ipad there is no way that I can find to get it off other than to email it to myself, but photos can be accessed on a regular computer in file manager like a disk or thumb drive... go figure.

    For all the things IPad's can do these type things are relatively annoying at times. Supposedly there are apps to do all this but I just don't see spending the effort to figure them out.

    I use the third icon from the right in the tool bar at the top of quick reply( looks like a framed picture of a deer head ). I use my iPad exclusively because of the convenience.

    My gen 2 iPad works with imgur but my new 6 th gen I just set up a few days ago will not give me the option with a drop down box for link options for some reason. Iím having issues as well.

    This is the correct way... I also only use Ipad’s with this site of various flavors. Ipad mini’s, ipad2’s, and so on...

    Once you click that, the next photo comes up... be sure to click the “from computer” and not the URL upload. The url options comes up first, but ignore it and click the “from computer” then select “choose file”

    The word Upload... it can be kinda hard to get the finger on just the upload word, but it works...

    That is all there is to it...

    Mine says the file or pic is too big if I load it directly from my iPad so I have to use the imgur app. I just loaded a pic from my old second gen iPad but the new updated iPad must have a different version being it doesn't load the image on this sight when I copy the link and paste it. It says "url" on both sides instead of "img". If I manually change them from one to the other it still doesn't work.

    Hey Tripplebeards.. make sure the resolution of the pictures you are taking with your IPad is set to a lower resolution... take a smaller pic.

    The app on my 6 th gen iPad pad says copy link. I click on it it and when I paste it here its posts a blank little square instead of the photo for sum reason.


    Like this...






    Or if I use the first icon that looks like the world and a boom box it posts the link and not the pic,..

    Triplebeards... what is the name of the app you are using on your IPad?

    If you are using Imager, let me show you what link to click...

    Start out with the image you want to upload... I use postimage.org, so this will outline the procedure from that image hosting service. It’s free.

    Here is a photo I uploaded of a couple totem poles I found while exploring a tiny island at an old burial site.

    Now click on the share icon I highlighted in red...
    Attachment 233598
    Then click on the Direct link icon in red.
    Attachment 233599
    That click copied the direct link into your clipboard so you can post the picture directly into Cast boolits site. Now switch over to the message you want to post the image to on Cast boolits. And click the icon below highlighted in red...
    Attachment 233600
    Then click this.. the insert image from URL button
    Attachment 233601
    Then the little box will change, and there will be a long horizontal box. Press in he center of the box with your fingertip and leave it there for a sec until you see this...
    Attachment 233602
    Select paste, and you will see the location of the image in posted for you.
    Attachment 233603
    Be sure that the little check box that says “Retrive image locally” things is checked... and press ok... and wallah... you will get this...
    Attachment 233604
    Post your message and the message will have your picture in it...

    It seems like a lot of steps, but there are a lot of steps in reloading a single case if you break it down like I have... it is truly easy once you get the hang of it, and the process is similar for other message sights like the High Road and others..

    You can message me privately if you wanna or have trouble, but I fully expect to see Any picture with your name on it NEXT TIME YOU POST.....

    Blessings,
    marko


    And there you have it...

    “Copy post link” has now magically disappeared for some reason. I emailed imgur about it. I’ll post the reply once I get an answer.

    Marko, I deleted the Imgur app and then signed in direct off their website. It works now the same way it dose on my 2nd gen iPad.
