    Use an online storage and link, ie Dropbox or photo bucket.

    Yes, but i wanted to add a printscreen of my ipad to show the problem.
    Consequently my image was sitting on my ipad !
    Reason for asking how to add an image "sitting" locally on my ipad to my thread.
    Perhaps someone else have an idea on how to do it !

    To post a screen shot (something I do here frequently) I email the screen shot to myself.

    [​IMG]

    Once I have it, I manipulate the graphic as required. (Like adding circles and arrows!) I also usually reduce full screen shots to 75% of their original size. Once that is done, I post it on Photobucket (a free image hosting website) Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

    Once there, you use the IMG Code option for your picture that automatically wraps the link to your picture with the required [​IMG] tags.

    [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    If you find an image on the web you like, for example I will search google images for something related to what I want to show..

    If you press and hold on the image you can "copy" the pictures link code.

    In a thread, just [​IMG].

    I think this is a function that should be looked at regarding the direct option of being able to include an img attachment to any thread or reply in this Forum.
    Thanks to all who submitted answers but having to go through ... Saving-emailling to yourself-using imageshack, etc , etc ........ Is really from stone age !

    If you have to also use your PC to be able to add an image to a thread youre posting from your ipad, it will take more than 5 min. Moreover you should be able to add that image to a post or thread using ONLY your IPAD. After all that's the idea to only use your IPAD not 2 machines ! It's dum if you have to !
