I thought I'd make a 'how to' guide on how to post photos from an iPad.
1, have the cursor where you wish the photo to appear and click the tree icon:
2, this box should appear. Click select on the 'your computer' tab:
3, two options appear. If the photo is already on the iPad select 'choose existing', if not select 'take photo' to take you to your camera screen.
4, if 'select existing' was chosen, all the albums on your iPad should appear. Photos in camera roll should migrate to photo stream and the photos should appear there in time if connected to wifi. I always use photo stream or my other albums rather than camera roll which turns photos on their sides or does not upload them properly.
5, After selecting photo stream the most recent of the photos are shown. You can scroll up the photos to select an earlier picture:
6, After selecting a photo the photo stream will vanish and within 30 seconds the image should appear in the image box. If it does not it may indicate that the photo is too large and will require cropping. Click save.
7, The screen will return to the forum page and the image will appear, sometimes unrolling slowly. I can now add further text or another photo if required:
If you decide the photo is not wanted, tap on it to highlight it and select the backspace key.
If you hide the keypad before inserting a photo please note the cursor will return to the top of the screen which will result in the photo appearing at the top, above any previous text.
I hope that has been helpful and no one feels patronised which wasn't my intention.
I know there are some technologically minded people on this forum so please feel free to add anything or correct anything I've said.
