Posting pictures?
« on: December 25, 2017, 06:09:28 AM »
Sorry to seem technically impaired, but can anyone please explain to me how to post pictures on this forum from my I-phone?  Whether it's from my camera or all ready stored documents?
It's so easy on facebook, but complicated here..  ???
You can do a lot in a lifetime if you don't burn out too fast, you can make the most of the distance, first you need endurance first you've got to last....... NP

Yeah, the pictures have to be hosted somewhere else, like on imgur or another third-party host.  Then you link to them here.

I've been on very few boards where they can afford to host the pictures on their server.  In fact, only one, and I'm a lurker there, not even a poster.  Facebook can afford to do it for "free" of course because you're the product, not the user.

I used to think it was a bit of a hassle(hoff!) too, but soon realized that that's just the way it's done.

Here's the only way I know how to do it:

1. Hook Iphone on to computer
2. Put the photos on the computer itself (I use Iphoto to transfer them onto computer)
3. Find an image hosting site that you like (I use pinterest, since its free)
4. Then copy image address from that picture and past it onto your post, but you have to use picture box button. The one that is about this emoji  :omg:

You can upload directly to most of the image services from your phone, it is not necessary to use a computer.
