Default IPad Photos Help

Has anyone figured out how to get photos from their iPad onto the forum? I thought I had done everything correctly but when I posted it there was a little blue question mark in a tiny box. Thanks! Susan

I did that for every one of my pictures in the New Year Mystery Quilt.

I have the Photobucket app (free) on my iPad. With it, I can take a picture which loads directly to Photobucket, or I can put photos that are on the iPad into Photobucket, all with a touch or two.

Then, from the Photobucket app, a touch copies the link code to paste right here into the reply box. Thus:


Hope this helps!

Thanks, Q! I downloaded the app but there's no "button" icon showing up when i go to my album to upload my photo from my iPad. What am I missing? Really appreciate your help!

Thanks!

Okay, in the Photobucket app, when you get to the page with your album, you should see an icon shaped like an arrow pointing up. Touch that, and you should see "Choose upload source." If you select your library, you should be able to upload a photo that's on your iPad already. Or, as I did during the mystery quilt, choose camera, take a photo with the iPad, and it will be uploaded to Photobucket automatically.

Then, touch the picture you want to put on the board, and there's an icon shaped like a section of chain. The link we use on this board is the "IMG code." Tap that and it will be copied.

Now, back to this board. In the reply box, touch so that you get the "Paste" option. What should paste should be the code for the photo.

Does that make sense?

As you can probably tell, I love forums, posting pictures, and my IPad! Lol

Q...yes, I can tell! I LOVE my iPad, too!

It's the arrow that isn't showing up. Thanks so much for all your effort. Your description makes perfect sense. I'll email them and see what I need to do.

Do you have a Photobucket account already? If not, do that first! I know when I got the app, the first thing it asked me to do was sign into my account. Not sure if you can create a new account on the iPad...

I'll be watching anxiously to see your work when you get it figured out. Once you get there, it's a breeze!

Yes, I set up an account. Think I'll reboot my iPad and serif that helps.

When you first start the app, down at the very bottom of the screen, does it say, "My Albums"? Odd...Hope you get it going!
