Pictures from iPhone to the forum

It's pretty straight forward, assuming your hosting site is Photobucket

1) you need to go to the app store and download the free app

2) log in so you can view your current albums

3) at the bottom of the screen there is a button, "Upload Media", tap this then tap choose existing. (or "Choose Camera" if you want to take a picture to upload directly.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Pressing this takes you into your Camera Roll where you can choose the pictures to upload.

4) once uploaded click on the picture you want to share and press (i), this gives you the URL link codes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
5) Click on the IMG code and it will automatically copy the link
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
6) go into the forum, open your post or comment and double tap the screen the click paste to pop the link code into your post.

For those who don't know if you're running the iPhone 4s (and maybe other versions I don't know) if you double tap the home key it opens a link to all the currently running programs making it easy to switch between the forum and Photobucket app if you're uploading multiple images as you can only Copy one link at a time.

Hope this helps y'all Smile

Incidentally I did all this on the phone and it took 2 mins Smile
