    On some other forums you can use tapatalk to upload photos but I think the admins need to turn that function on.

    Download the photo bucket app if you have an iPhone, you can then just copy and paste the image link.

    Now I can't figure out how to get the photo's from my phone onto photo bucket, I've got a Nokia N8, looked in the store but there's no photo bucket app on it......why can't things be simple!!

    OMG, Photobucket is the easiest app to upload pictures for use on the forum, I could take a picture and post it up in under 30 secs!!

    Short of doing it at home, you could email it people.

    I'm happy to help out.

    Ironically that TTRS is same price as our S3 was new, but our dealer only ever gets cars I want when I've just bought one. When I get ready to buy the roll in some right old ****!

    Download it from photobucket and use the forum to upload the image.

    It don't really like using images from photobucket as avatars.
