A while back Langley put up a notice about posting from mobile devices. That might discourage some people from posting from said mobile devices; but never fear! If you own an iDevice, you can equivalent (or maybe even better) posts compared to desktop users, with extreme ease.

Supplies

-- iPad, iTouch, or iPhone

-- Camera Connection Kit (http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_e_1)

-- Photobucket for iPad, or iTouch/iPhone

-- Wifi Connection



Okay, if your device doesn't have a built in camera, or you want high quality images, you'll need one of these doodads. Basically, it's a card reader that attaches to the 32 pin connecter on the bottom of apple devices.($3.51 from Amazon)

Posted Image

Download your Photobucket app, for whatever device you're using. I use an iPad, so I download the iPad version.

Posted Image
(screenshots are sideways, sorry about that)

Connect your card reader, and your camera to said card reader.

Posted Image

Open Apples preinstalled Photos app. (give it a second to load)

Posted Image

If you see photos with green checkmarks, that means that it has been already imported. Tap the photos you want to be imported, and they will be checked blue.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Now click import. A window will drop down, giving you two options. Import all or just selected. Choose selected (unless you want all of your photos imported)

Posted Image
Posted Image

Let it finish. When it's done, it will ask you wether or not you want to keep the imported photos. I chose yes. Now go open your photo bucket app.

Posted Image
Posted Image

You will be sent to the homepage. Click my albums, on the bottom of the screen.

Posted Image

Now click that arrow at the top of the screen.

Posted Image

Then just select the photos you want to upload, and wait for it to finish.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Done! Now all you have to do is add it to your post. Start by clicking on the photo you want.

Posted Image

Now click the chain link at the top.

Posted Image

NerfHaven uses IMG code, so click on that option. It will say it is copied to you clipboard.

Posted Image

Now just click paste when doing your writeup, and boom. You have pictures.

He who is making a definitive guide to posting pictures could not even post them horizontally? I'm disappointed...but I do agree this is important for some users.

Hey...I got a crazy idea: how about you stop all that sigging stuff? It's not even my thread and it annoys me.

This thread would be a lot more helpful if there were instructions for how to rotate images before you post them.

So you wrote a tutorial on how to properly post photos from a phone, but you're telling us you'll fix your shitty sideways images later? Saying you'll fix it later is the exact problem I have with people posting from their phone. You seem to be trying so hard to post a helpful thread that will get pinned, but you just aren't pulling it off. I don't know what part of NJ you're from, but there was an actual nerf war today in your state. You could have gone to that, and Nerfed. That's why we're all here, right? To nerf? Not to talk about nerfing, or to talk about how to use a nerf forum, or to seek the approval of other nerfers on the internet. So instead of expending all this effort on trying to be helpful to the forums, you could maybe get your ass to an actual war? Or make some darts, or mod some blasters, or try to talk some of your friends into nerfing and having a backyard war or something. Anything really. And then, if you do something really awesome, you could post about that. That would be cool.

How exactly do you do you engage in a nerf war from behind a computer screen??? Do you have your buddies with all of their computers with you in a room with nerfhaven pulled up & blasters in hand? Last time I checked the internet was created for sharing information & ideas which is what this poster was trying to do.

No, it's really hard to top the "here's how to do {X}" post that then actually gets {X} wrong. Really really hard.
The internet is a collaborative work of performance art.
Take anything personally at your own risk.

Now you're just making my point for me.

Wow, hey, you're off to a great start there buddy. Code of Conduct. Second rule, right there at the top. (Although the first rule certainly applies too.)
