    I have been trying to figure out how to post a picture using my iPhone to ADV. I'm sure it is simple but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Please someone help.

    Perhaps it's simple with something like tap-a-talk. :dunno

    If you replace the word "iphone" in your question with "camera" do you then know what to do?

    I upload images from my phone to my desktop, do whatever image processing I like, then upload the resulting image to my smugmug account. Then I reference the photo on smugmug. In other words, exactly what I do from any other camera.

    I have no problem posting with me camera/laptop/desktop. I don't know how to do it with my iPhone.

    Your iphone is a camera. I use a mac and have at least 3 ways of grabbing pics off my phone. Don't know what the equivalent is for a PC. If you don't know how any other way to get the pictures from your phone to a laptop/desktop try emailing the images to yourself from the iphone.

    It works, but it's a bit cumbersome sometimes. Here's a thread from last year about this. I think it's a bit easier now with the new forum software.

    The problem is to get to the URL of the picture, as you can't right-click. It won't work if the picture you're trying to post is a link at the same time. For instance, I can't post the ADVrider banner on top, because it's a link to the home page at the same time.

    What you need to do is tap and hold the image, then a menu will pop up. Select "Copy". Then click on "new reply" on ADV and tap on the "insert image" icon: [​IMG]
    Another window will pop up, prompting you to insert the image URL. Delete the "http://" there. Then tap and hold there, the "paste" balloon will pop up. Paste the image URL, hit OK and the IMG code with the pic URL will show up in the reply window.

    So it depends on the picture hoster you're using. Some of them offer iPhone apps, most of them will have an easy option to select and copy the image URL, some don't.

    I use photbucket for my photos and have uploaded the photobucket app for Iphone.
    I haven't tried posting photos here with it yet, but looks like its pretty straight forward.
    copy and paste the image URL and that should be it

    I don't have photobucket. I use Picasa. Maybe that is why I can't.

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    I have no idea where abouts in tapatalk it is, but it's now on ADV,

    So, why can't I just write a tag to point to my server or Dropbox public URL? Like the img src="http://db.tt/b7lYYEr" tag. (it doesnt work, i've tried)

    Ive tried the HTML, CODE, and PHP tags from the menu on that link, and even an EMBED tag around it but still cant get an image to show. Seems you shouldnt have to buy TapAtalk if you know a little HTML, but then I've always been the one to get downstream by going over the mountain.....
