    I think it would be worth expanding to include how-to take the screen shot. You'd be surprised by how many people don't know how to screen capture on an iDevice.

    Was reminded of this when visiting the competition facebook page posted on here in the last few days and noticed they had to post instructions of doing a screen capture.

    Handy to know that imgur keeps track of uploads. I just installed the photobucket app, which I haven't used in years, since I sold on eBay, and it still had my old albums, lol! Anyway, that will give you all the most common codes to paste (HTML, bb, etc) so you don't have to deal with that separately.

    Does imgur also let you keep your albums private, as PB does?

    Actually, that only works if you access the forums through your iDevice too. I would assume most know that, but if you are on your computer for the forums (as I am) and playing the game on your iPhone/iPad, then you will have to manually type the "link" into the forum message board with the coding that you mentioned.  Of course, this also assumes you have image posting privileges.  If you do not, then it's moot.  Or you can put the image link information there and hope that a forum member who has image posting privileges will reply to your thread, thus posting the image for you.

    If you could add a couple more things to the original post, (Photobucket, flickr, "how to" screenshot) then this will be a great all-encompassing list to add to the Index! Sadly, my "How To" for Flickr and Photobucket got deleted with the original FAQ, and I really don't like to do things twice.

    No but I don't post pictures I want to keep private. I keep them, you know, private. :wink:

    Lol! Most of mine now are stuff like house renos and my dog and bike from other forums, just not things I want searchable in PB. Nothing incriminating :)
    Here's a shot of code selection on PB, but I think I have to get on my desktop to fix my posting sizes. 376f03bf8faa8e81194586a342e343d7.jpg

    Unless we keep these image sharing threads active every single day those images get deleted from the Imgur site after sixty days. Kind of a bad thing if one of the quest line threads goes dormant for a while. Plus, if you're using Firefox with the Adblock add on it causes a lot of issues with Imgur. It seems Adblock's default list of place to filter out includes anything from Imgur. So if you don't mind the possibility of your images going poof after two months from the last time they're seen then go ahead and use Imgur. If you already have accounts on other sites there apps for them so you can upload your images easily to your existing accounts.

    For those of you who have Imageshack accounts they have an upload service called Sky Drive that works from your mobile devices and hooks into your Imageshack account. http://imageshack.us/pages/skypath/

    Then of course there's the Photobucket app with versions for both the iPhone and the iPad. This one links directly to a Photobucket account. If you have an older device or already use Photobucket this is a very good alternative because when you get on your account through the website you can edit the size of the images you have in your accounts so they're not overly large. This is what I use to upload any of my screenies from my iPad for sharing. Since it's not a universal app you will have to download both versions if you use both the iPhone and iPad to play Tapped Out.

    Photobucket

    For photobucket, you will need an account.

    Step 1: Go to https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/photobucket/id314439840?mt=8 and install this app.

    Step 2: Launch the newly installed app.

    Step 3: Setup up account and sign in.

    Step 4: To upload a picture, tap the up arrow in the top right corner. It will make a pop up menu appear.

    Step 5: Tap on "Photo library". It will make another pop up menu appear.

    Step 6: Tap on "Camera Roll". That is where your photo will be. Then tap on the picture to upload (it will automatically upload it).

    Step 7: Now to get the image url. Tap the chain icon in the top right corner. As seen below highlighted by a red circle.

    Step 8: Tap on the IMG code option.

    Step 9: Now come back to the boards. Paste the link you just copied into the text box and Bob's your uncle.

    After so many people posting how do you post an image from your device I thought I would make a short how to.

    There are several way to do so. I will outline a few here for your convince.

    imgur

    Step 1: Have a picture you want to post.

    Step 2: Go to https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imgupr-photo-uploader-for/id498636755?mt=8 and install this app.

    Step 3: Launch the newly installed app.

    Step 4: At the main screen tap "Choose Photo". That will bring up a new pop up screen.

    Step 5: Tap on "Camera Roll". That is where your photo will be. Then tap on the picture to upload.

    Step 6: It will give you a preview of your photo with 2 boxes to put in a description (if so desired, not necessary though).

    Step 7: Scroll down and hit the upload button. Wait for it to finish.

    Step 8: Once done, it will give you a screen like the following:

    YBUovl.jpg

    Step 9: Tap "Copy link", then original.

    Step 10: Now come back to the boards. Paste the link you just copied into the text box and put img] around the link. Then submit.  It's that simple.  That app will also keep track of the photos you have uploaded.Photobucket

    See my post below

    Hope this helps you out! :D
