    Cannot be done direct from iPad , however you can get a direct link to Dropbox and use the web link feature either in tapatalk or forum runner.
    Dropbox features to share files via links are explained on the Dropbox website in detail.

    Or you can two step it.

    Use the DropBox app to save your picture to the Camera Roll, then use the iPF app (Discussion Forum for iPad) to post it. I'm assuming this would work with the TapaTalk and Forum Runner apps also. the iPF app is based on the Forum Runner app.

    You can delete the picture off the Camera Roll (in the Photos app) after you are done; just to keep the clutter down.
