Forum Guide: Post Pictures Direct from iPad/iPhone to Forum
« on: October 29, 2011, 09:54:12 pm »
Here's how to post pictures directly from your iPad or iPhone to the forum without having to plug your device into a PC.



Before starting, make sure you have the following Apps installed (both are free):

PhotoShop Express*
Photobucket
(need to have registered an account on the photobucket website http://photobucket.com/)

Also, add a direct link to the forum onto your device - http://mojo-farm.com/forum/index.php?board=1.0

*If you have iOS5 installed on your iDevice and do not need to crop your image at all, you will not need PhotoShop Express and you can skip steps 1-6.  Instead, you can start with opening Photobucket in step 7.






Once all that is in place -

1. Take your screen shot by holding down the home and lock button simultaneously.

2. Open up PS Express






3. Select photo - Saved photos - Select photo to work on






4. Select 'Crop' button in bottom left corner - Then Rotate - and turn picture 90 degrees with finger






5. Click 'OK' in bottom right corner







6. and then 'save' in top right corner (note: this saves a 2nd copy of the pic - it does not replace your original, this has to be deleted manually if you so wish).






7. Close PS Express and open Photobucket



8. Go to 'My Albums' on bottom task bar







9. Click on 'Upload' arrow on top task bar







10. Select Photo Library - Saved Photos - Click on one or more pics and they will start uploading immediately (progress bar on left side of screen).







11. Message 'There are no uploads in your queue' when upload is complete, so close the upload menu by again touching on the upload arrow.







12. Click on the picture you want to link to and it will open up full screen







13. Click on the 'links' icon on the top task bar








14. Tap on the IMG Code to copy the code to the clipboard







15. Open up Mojo-Farm forum and make your way to the thread where you want to place a picture







16. Click into the text box and then hold your finger in the box briefly - the 'Paste' bubble will then pop up







17. Tap the paste bubble for the IMG code to be placed in the text box.







18. Submit (or preview if you prefer) message and enjoy the pictures appearing in front of your very own eyes.





19. Pat yourself on the back and be pleased with your successful posting of a picture :D

Just a heads up, it looks like pictures will need to be resized (smaller) to fit onto the thread correctly.

Are you viewing from a computer, or an iPad?

If the pictures are still linked (I've not checked), I can easily resize them in Photobucket if necessary?
 
If you have a spare order slot, please consider throwing one to my OH - andypart (also a Main Realmer, thanks :)

I'm using an iPad.  Unfortunately I've noticed that this forum is kind of not idevice friendly in some aspects and I hardly ever boot up my computer except for homework and playing around in photoshop.  I figured it would be easier to just reformat picture size because most people use an idevice to read the forum instead of computer anyway. ;)

Really?

I guess I didn't mind reading the old forum on my iPad, but I prefer using a laptop any time I'll be typing extensively. I definitely need the tactile feedback.  :)

Well, I just assumed most people use an idevice to view the forum from reading past posts.  Maybe we should start a poll to use how most people view the forum.  Either I use an iPad or have to walk to my computer desk since I lack a labtop.

Looks fine on my iPad. Also, iOS 5 auto rotates your pictures so perhaps you could add a tip that if you have iOS 5 you could skip all of the photoshop steps.

Good point!  I've updated the OP.  :)

This thread shows up pretty good on my iPad as well, but it looks like fairycodmother had already resized the photos before posting back at the other forum.  Visit my Designing in 3-D thread and you'll know what I'm talking about.  I probably should have resized them originally, but I like to skip steps.  Can't anymore. :P

For those who us it, Dropbox is also a great way to post pics direct from your iDevice. It's what I've been using basically the entire I've been here.

Is anyone else having a difficult time uploading pics to photobucket via the app? Everytime I try and choose a picture boom, crash!

I'm going to delete and reinstall and hopefully that will help, I have some pics I want to share
