Posting pictures from Iphone

Postby hoosierdaddy » Thu Mar 02, 2017 11:19 am

I will be on island in three weeks and would like to share some of the beauty with my forum friends. Can anyone tell me how to do this from an IPhone? When I try to add a picture it says it is two large.

Unless something has changed, I don't think you can post photos directly to a thread from your phone. I have always had to upload my pictures to a hosting site (I use flickr) and then copy the code into my trip report. If you have a tumblr account you can post to the VIOL tumblr and it will show up over on the right side of the forum. I don't have tumblr so I am not sure how simple that process is.
It's like looking in your soup and finding a whole different alphabet.

And if you don't have a photo hosting site that you want to share with folks, tinypic.com will allow you to upload from your phone and then give you a link for posting to message boards.

Yes. I use the browser on my phone to go to tinypic.com. Then I upload the picture and save the link that it provides. Then I use the [ img ] (with no spaces) tag on this board to post the photo.

Hope that's clear enough. I also checked and there is a tinypic iphone app but I've never tried it.

Thanks again Dave. I like how that looks. I look forward to sharing some pics from the Rock in a few weeks!

Is it possible to use multiple pictures in one post?
