From what I can tell, I can't.
I hope I'm wrong.

Isabella, absolutely you can do this. I post pictures from my iphone to Mr. Lake forum all the time. The pictures of the Red Gravy lunch were taken with my iphone. I simply connect my iphone to my computer. The computer recognizes my iphone as a storage device. I transfer the pictures to a folder on my computer labeled "Mr Lake pictures." I use my computer photo editing software to resize the pictures to the proper resolution. Then you can directly attached a picture to a post by using the "upload attachment" box.

For me, when I post a picture, I transfer my pictures to Photobucket. Then I use the Photobucket website to post my pictures. It makes for a more nicer presentation of the picture.

It's easy after you get the hang of it.

Additional note: When I use my iphone to take pictures, I have to hold the phone very steady and carefully - especially for closeup shots. It takes great pictures but the slightest movement will make the picture slightly blurry.

Big Dale, thanks!
I was looking for a more direct route! :P

Since getting an iPhone, I might get on the computer once a week.
I handle most of my biz from the phone.
Best time saver ever & biz investment.

So .... that said, ;) I want to post pics directly to the forum from my phone.
If I could do that, y'all would have plenny of pics to drool over!

Ya mean like dis one dawlin?

OK, it worked, so I've edited this to give you instructions on how I did it, even though I don't have an iPhone. From my Samsung, I just opened the forum, went to the bottom and did a browse in the attachment area. It then asked me where I wanted to take the picture from: the SD card, the gallery, or the camera. The first two times I tried it didn't work because the pictures were too big. I downloaded PicsArt (it's Android so I don't know if they have an iPhone version), then resized the picture to half it's original size and it downloaded just fine. Then do the Place inline just as if you were downloading on a PC.

From my Samsung,
1). I just opened the forum, CHECK

2). went to the bottom CHECK

3). did a browse I don't have this option. I also don't see it on my computer either. This is where I am stuck. It doesn't give me the CHOOSE FILE option. I did do a test on my iMac & you'll see the photo below I was able to attach. Perhaps Bart would know since he created the forum's site.

4). in the attachment area. CHECK

SO, THIS IS AS FAR AS I GOT. PicsArt is not avail for iphone. I did ask for a compatible app & downloaded a few of them. I'm not going to give up, but I just have not figured out how to make it work. If anyone already has the answer of how to directly post pictures onto this forum from an iphone, then I would greatly appreciate it. In the meantime, at least I am attempting to learn! Thanks so much, Okie!

It then asked me where I wanted to take the picture from: the SD card, the gallery, or the camera. The first two times I tried it didn't work because the pictures were too big. I downloaded PicsArt (it's Android so I don't know if they have an iPhone version), then resized the picture to half it's original size and it downloaded just fine.
