Posting pictures from iPhone or iPad

Does anybody know how I can post a pic to the forum directly from my iPhone or iPad?

You can do it either from TapaTalk or directly from Safari if your iOS is up to date.

When composing a reply in Safari, click the Manage Attachments button under the typing window.

In the new window that opens, click the Choose File button and proceed accordingly.

Or upload them to some image service (iphoto, tumblr, picasa, imgur, etc) and link to that.

The only real reason to host images at TFL is if you think the image is going to be taken down from those services. vbulletin can do it, but why? It's one more place you have to go to manage images. There are apps for uploading to major imagehosting services that are easier to use than uploading to TFL.

I just couldn't get the hang of tapatalk. I tried it, but I'm just too used to the native forum.

When I click "manage attachments" and attemp to upload a pic from my phone I get denied. It says that my pics are too large and are over the forums alotted size.

How does iPhoto handle this? I use iPhoto to manage all of my pics.

I'm guessing iphoto has some way to create public links to individual images? Copy one of those to the clipboard, then paste the link into a post, either as an image with [img] or as a link with [url] (non-embedded)

I'm not an apple customer, so I don't know much about iphoto. I only listed it because I figured it would be the default way to handle images on iOS.
