    I have a devil of a time using Imgur on my phone or ipad. I'm sure there are other alternatives. Doggie will probably know.

    Donna do you have an "upload file" button at the bottom of the dialogue box?

    Copy and paste wont work on your own personal photos you've got on your PC though. It only works on some images you find on the internet.

    If this rectangle I'm typing into now is the dialog box, No I don't. I have 'Post Reply' and 'More Options' at the bottom. When I click on more options I don't get it either.

    Don't worry about me girls. If I really needed to I'll just email it to Doggie and ask him to. :taunt:

    Ok, good. Then you have to use an image-sharing site to post a pic from your puter.

    Sorry for all you technophobes. You gotta learn to sink or swim. :violin:

    Or make friends with one of the nerds. :)

    Thanks for that as it's reassuring to know.

    I don't feel quite so dumb now.
    Don't think I'll be designing any computer programs any time soon but even Steve Jobs started somewhere.

    Desperately trying to swim Angela, just so I don't get left so far behind I won't be able to catch up. You'd never believe I was paid to operate one of the first personal computers to enter the country back in 1980 but I've never got into the social stuff and never needed to be able to post pictures before.

    I find xomf.com far more user friendly its simple but I would recommend only doing one image at a time. I do use imgur as well but xomf is a good starting point to get the hang of things. :)

    Use the imgur app.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Copy to clipboard will put a link.

    It is even easier with tapatalk. Tapatalk have their own hosting. There is a thread in this sub forum on that
