    I'll check out that postimage site. Thanks for the tips.

    What picture editors are people using? Anything iPad only? My laptop gets used less and less frequently now, it would be a shame to have to dust it off just to crop a couple of images.

    Finally, what's the deal with the different ways of posting images? I see people post an image, then someone will repost it saying 'fixed it for you', and indeed it looks much better when they do this.. What exactly are they doing?

    I may go and look at the general EA forums and see if they have a test area for experimenting...

    I don't think it is at 50 posts. Because I got promoted yesterday with only 28 posts. :mrgreen:

    Why does the forums limit functionality at all to anyone?

    It doesn't matter what level you are, an admin or moderator has to promote you manually. It seems that about once a month someone comes on here and upgrades or promotes nearly everyone's account. I'm not sure how they decide who to promote, I think it's just anyone who had written that week or that month. They did it a month ago the exact same way.

    Yeh it's around there for most people, but it differs a lot. Some people get promoted at 20 posts, others are 100+ posts with no promotion

    Maybe there's something to do.

    Do you really think they review accounts manually?

    I've seen forums that had multiple ways of qualifying for "trusted" status, but some combination of number of posts and length of membership. Like either one month and 100 posts, two months and 50 posts, three months and 25 posts, etc.

    I was upgraded at exactly 6 weeks and exactly 50 posts, FWIW.

    I honestly have no idea how they do this, but it's clearly not triggered automatically by the number of posts.

    Yeh I'm not sure how they do it but I don't think it's manually done. Because when you are promoted you get a message from 'the system' I think it was, and I don't think ea visit this forum much so it would be a lot to to promote everyone manually

    People..please.. Photobucket? Heres how to cut and paste photos.. Via sonny 1618( after he filled me in)

    Find a picture on the internet, copy the URL, paste it into your message, select the text and click the 'Img' button. It will surround it with the image tags and, as long as you don't have 'disable BB Code' checked should show up when you post it.
    Voila! Easy.

    Now get posting :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
    Is there anyone out there?

    Yeah, but they're talking about when you screencap your town on the iPad and want to share that stuff. They're talking image hosting apps, sites, and other methods for dealing with you Tapped Out sharing goodies.

    @Topic: I use Photobucket mostly because Flickr has this thing about you sharing other people's copy written work even if it's a screencap. For all your cropping needs your best bet is the totally free Photoshop Express app. Outside of Snapseed and ArtStudio, it's one of the best photo and image editing apps in the App Store. Plus, the free price tag makes it so totally worth it.

    Go ahead and post it anyway, someone with level 2 status will quote it for you so it shows up.

    I tend to find most pics I need on google images but taking screen shots is where I run into issues...

    I use my google account.. I set up a public folder in Picasa and upload images there; however no matter how small i crop my images, the stupid iPad upscales the resolution back to whatever the native resolution is... what if i want the uploaded pic to be 300 by 300... I cant get my iPad to cooperate... any apps?? I don't want to use any other services...
