Attach photo to web thread
How do you attach a photo from your iPad photo app/folder to a web thread? When I try the file attachment box is dead/not active.
I finally got it to work. I would like to thank everyone who offered advice, stuck with me and put up with my less than techie brain. I was able to post my picture on another website using MattIM's work flow.
Thank you MattIM!

So 72 people have looked at my thread and no one knows how? What makes the iPad easier/better than a laptop? Seems like you have to download app after app and then step after step to do the same things that a laptop does without all of the hassle? What am I missing?
Sorry for the rant but I'm getting tired of fighting this thing to do the basics; email, Internet, pictures etc.
Why is it so hard to attach a file to a website thread?
This has come up a number of times but my brain isn't working this morning. Basically you upload to a free image hosting site and link the image.
Hopefully someone will jump in and give you the full details.
If you don't want to wait do a search of older forum posts.
You can't do it on the iPad because Apple decided it's best if you don't have direct access to your files to do what you want with them.
Only way to do it is plug in your iPad to your computer, copy the photo you want to attach, and then do it from the computer.
Sorry Superbike81, You Can take an image from the iPad
and post it on a webpage.. It is a little different from what you do on a PC.

3. Go into Photobucket, on the lower side of the frame press my albums.
4. Press the white up arrow, choose photo library, choose your photo, upload.
5. Once upload, while in my album, have subject photo on screen, you see in upper right corner a down arrow, next to it, you'll see a chain. Tap the chain and you'll get a list of options, choose image code to copy.
6. Go to the website, press on a blank space on the webpage, hit paste and the image displays.
Damn coffee has kicked in and I was logging on to recommend the Photobucket app.......
Heh Superbike81 remember Uncle Steve knows best and it's good break your conditioning over file access. We're not in windows now Toto....
He asked about attaching a photo, not uploading it to Photobucket, getting the IMG tag info and then pasting that into a post.

That is the problem with the closed file system. You have to do a workaround for even the most simple tasks like attaching a file.
File sharing is what Apple wants to prevent. This device was made for the plebe to buy and consume files, in no way is it permitted to share them...easily that is, even the ones you've created.
Apple made this media consumption concept too early. They should have made a tablet first and then castrate it.

I agree.. The iPad was never meant to be a full blown computer. It's essentially an oversized iPod. It's primary purpose is to Play games and enjoy media (pictures, movies and music)... It does other 'things', but most of them do have limitations...
