    These and others.
    I am still confused..
    I took the photo with the iPad camera and I thought I could just copy and past it in a thread but I can not figure out how to do it.
    Do I need to send it to photo bucket or a sight like that first or is there a easier way to do it with a app?

    There is an app available for the IPF forum which has a simple attachment button for adding photos but if you are on the website (as it sounds) don't use the quick reply, just above that box is a button marked "post reply", use that and it gives you various options for adding photos.

    I find it much easier to use the app.

    You can use the attachments paperclip to add an image as an attachment. Size guidelines will be displayed on the page that pops up.

    Cheers

    From the app write a new post, in the top left hand corner of the new post box you will see a button marked attachments, press that and follow the instructions. A new window will open with a button marked add attachments, when you press this it will give you the option of your photo albums, touch the album with the photo in it, then add the photo and it should work.

    If you mean forums other than IPF then that would depend on the particular forum and if you can upload from the iPad will be dependent on their settings and the integration with safari. As for IPF you can post on any of our forums via the app.

    I tried several times to upload a photo here from my iPad but never could do it. I instead downloaded the photo bucket app, uploaded to photo bucket and then downloaded to here.

    It really is a breeze with the IPF app......it could only be simpler if the iPad read your mind and uploaded the photo itself.
