I have a problem trying to post a photo in a topic
« on: October 08, 2018, 01:44:51 PM »
Today I wanted to post about the red 302, I found another rose beige 302 right in the same spot, but because I no longer have aphot hosting service I can't post a photo. We need a on site photo hosting.

Dan,
Perhaps I'm missing the point, but when I post eBay etc photos I just use the Windows snipping tool to get the photo, save it to my desktop and then attach it to the forum post.
Why do you need photo hosting?

I keep a folder in my picture files of referenced resized images that I add to each time I have a new one.  When I post here, I attach the image drawn directly from that sub folder.  That has worked quite well since my first successful uploaded attachment.  Sites like Image Shack became more trouble than they were worth to me long ago, even before their monetization activities.

I never have a problem. I just save a picture from the listing on my computer and add it as an attachment. On my work computer (where I spend most of my day) for some reason it will not let me save a screen shot but I add the auction number to the post.

I've figured out how to attach a photo via my aging iPad but I still can't get an iPad screenshot (say from eBay). If someone would let me know how, I promise to save out the info and make sure I do it.

Thanks for that - the assistive touch info was exactly what I needed to know (my iPad button stopped working a long time ago).

And to test it out I've taken a screenshot ;D of the 'how to do it' info.
