If you're using IMGUR, made a post on another thread on how to do this quick and painless. Didn't see this exact method covered here.

Lately, when trying to log-in on Imgur from mobile, it won't let you and it will refresh the page.

Seems we're having a lot of problems again. I wish people would read the pinned topics.

My boss has a WatchGuard web blocker that blocks all YouTube, Photobucket, and other web links. If the pictures could be directly posted here on the forum without using links, it'd be nice though that would take up server space. While I realize that all employees are paid for their time, there's not a human that I know of that can just continually do work without taking a mental break like browsing through ant forums such as this one. When the AI bots (Artificial Intelligent robots) takes over in the next 5 - 20 years, I'll be begging my boss for my job back, however. Universal Basic Income probably be enough for me to support my ant addiction.....

There is no reason why people can't use the gallery here to host their pictures.

How do I do this on Mobile. There’s no my media option. I want my pictures to show up nice and big so people don’t have to click on links and stuff.

A quick note for other new members, until you have actually uploaded pictures to the gallery, when you click on your name as shown in the video "My Gallery" is not one of the options listed. Only once you have an album does it appear in the drop down menu.

I just thought I'd clarify that, it's hard to follow instructions when the option you are told to select is not offered!

That is strange, but I think that Drew should fix this? Although, if the my gallery button doesn't work, the big Gallery tab should be vissible. But thank you for the info!

I wasn't meaning to criticise, I worked it out easily enough but I did wonder why I didn't have My Gallery as an option when it was on the instructional video that you had to select the option.

It's just one of those Forum Engine things, I hadn't uploaded to the gallery therefore I had no "My Gallery" so why list it?

 

At first I thought it a cumbersome system because you can't just upload a pic straight to the thread but apart from starting your post then going 'duh, I forgot to upload the pics first' and opening another tab to upload them it works well for my style. It takes me a long time to cut 100's of pics down to the few actually worth posting, now I can upload the finalists to the gallery and they're there to use as desired in threads rather than searching picture folders on my computer to find them. I'm starting to like the idea very much!

Is there any way to post videos as well? I realized videos are embedded above, is there any way to do it with imgur videos?

I just copy the YouTube link and paste it in the text box, that works.

I also can’t figure out how to do this since there are absolutely no options to do anything when writing a post on mobile that I can see. Not even a preview button that I can see. Am I missing something or is it not possible?

Ok so I figured out a way to post a picture link from mobile iOS. There doesn’t seem anyway to embed the picture, but a link will have to do I guess. If you’re using the full version instead of the mobile version there’s a button you can click “more reply options”. When you click that there is an “attach files” button. This button will allow you to choose pictures from your video library but when you try to attach the file to the post it says “you do not have permission to attach this file type” whatever that means. However if you use an app to convert the picture into a PDF file it will allow you to post the link.

Step 1: convert the picture you want to post into a PDF file
Step 2: scroll to the bottom of the page and select “full version”
Step 3: click the “more reply options” button
Step 4: click the “choose file” button
Step 5: click the “browse” button on your device
Step 6: select the photo you want linked in your post
Step 7: click the “attach this file” button

Please let me know if clicking the pdf file works and it’s not just some localized link on my device. If someone knows a better way, please share.

Edit: I guess this isn’t any better than just posting the URL links from imagur
