Inserting pictures using an iPad
« on: November 20, 2011, 10:39:44 am »
Ok (I will try and speak English Chookie)
Go to the app store and put photobucket in the top right search box
Select the free app photobucket from the iPad apps and download.
Once downloaded open the app
If you don't have a photobucket account sign up for one by putting in your user name, password etc
Login and on the top right there is an arrow, when you click on it, it will say "choose upload source" I have photos in an album on my iPad ( I use the little adapter you can buy for iPad to take an SD card from my digital camera) the other option is putting photos from a laptop or desktop on photobucket as photobucket can be accessed anywhere you can get on the Internet.
Once you have photos on there click on the "my albums" down the bottom.
Select the photo you want to upload.
Click on the little chain icon on the top right.
Tap on the IMG Code to copy it and then paste it into the reply box on the forum. It will start with [IMG:http etc etc
This should then become a picture when you hit the post button. I hope this makes sense and helps people with iPads post more pictures :)

Hi Meagan. Thanks for the info. I've downloaded photobucket, registered, and tried to upload a photo already on my iPad but it keeps failing. I tried to choose a different file source but it won't let me, even though I gave my sd card reader plugged in? Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?
