    Sorry no one has answered your question @grammyk. I would help, but I don’t use an iOS device. I’ll see if I can find someone that does, and can lend a hand.

    @bernersenn, @birdleader

    @kathy, @sweetp, lol, I can do the print screens on the device, just can’t figure out how to get them in a post. It’s easy to put them in my album but this forum software works quite differently:-)

    @kathy

    ohh @grammyk sorry I misunderstood

    ok here goes, I’ll do my best to explain how i do it

    go to your album, click (maybe hold and press) on the pic you want to upload

    it should enlarge the picture and you’ll see 3 or 4 links below,

    click on the ‘copy link text’ or Embed thumbnail’ hold that  until part of it turns blue, and and’ up top ‘select all ‘  copy ‘  then wherever you want it to be, go there, press and click paste.

    Yes that was quite rudimentary instruction, but if I can do it, you can! I’ll try to get a screenshot of the screen with the links lol!

    @sweetp help?

    hold on brb.

    Kathy
    @kathy

    in this case I chose ‘text link’

    but see the links? you have to click and hold one, ‘select all’ ‘copy’

    then go where you want to post it, press and hold a blank spot on the screen and then select ‘paste’

    Practice here if you want , it’s your forum after all lol

    ohh @grammyk

    Beautiful @Gramnyk ! I wondered if iPad had that ‘copy link’ thing , but i didn’t know, i can do that with music on Android, wasn’t sure about pics!

    @sweetp perhaps you can leave this forum open for others who might be experiencing the same questions?

    @grammyk

    And I will write up clear directions – illustrated haha @kathy, @sweetp , tomorrow!

    Kathy
    @kathy

    lol @grammyk Please do, my instructions are at best, basic, And most likely confusing, happy you you figured it out!

    G’nite

    SweetP
    @sweetp

    Ah, I now see what you meant @grammyk! And thank you @kathy for stepping up and explaining the process, you’re my hero!
    @kathy, I thought we had the same instructions in our FAQ page? I’ll take a look and see if it needs updating.

    Edit: I knew we had it written in the
    FAQ
    page, under the Commenting section.

    @sweetp, @kathy, Now that you pointed it out I see it under “Commenting” (groan). I just looked under “Forum” sections. So now that I have figured out how to put it directly into the forum post I’m not sure if you want to advertise that. Either way a picture is stored on a server. So in my case I would put a once only pic directly in the post and a link in the post to a pic in the album that I might refer to more than once.

    Anyways, thanks for the help, a few laughs, and a learning experience for the day! 😁

    Happy that’s all sorted @grammyk @sweetp

    and happy i could help! guess it was a learning experience for all of us 😁
