    Hi there,

    A number of websites I use require me to upload photos with whatever transaction or advert I am doing. Thing is, on my iPad these upload buttons don't work, presumably because those upload buttons are looking for a Windows file system. I'd love to just be able to point these buttons to my Photo Library - but it sees impossible.

    Anyone know if this is indeed any way possible?

    Regards
    William R.

    Using Safari it's not possible to upload photos or other documents to websites. To do that, you'll need a third-party browser, such as iCab, which will allow you to upload documents and photos *from within the iCab filespace* to a website.

    In other words, you first have to move the documents or photos from the app that they're currently in to iCab's filespace using the iOS 'Open In' facility. Once the photo (copy) is in the iCab filespace, you can upload it.
