I am hoping someone out there can assist me with post images with an iPad....I have my images saved in the album on the PipesMag web site...I go to my album and "hold my finger on the image" until I can eith chose "copy" or "save"...I then come to the forum and touch the IMG button and past the link in the popup box....after doing all this, all I get is a little square box in the forum...I don't know what I'm doing wrong

Get the Photobucket app for you iPad and use it. Far easier then trying to cut and paste.

The only way i found this works is if i go to the Facebook site (not Mobile APP) the actual site fromi Safari and copy the link location And paste it in the the IMG option here.

NOLA Cajun:
That "copy" or "save" option is referring to work you're doing on the iPad itself. You can copy the image to another app or to another location; but it isn't intended as a way to paste the image into a forum like this one. Because it's not actually duplicating the image when you copy and paste it within the iPad's ecosystem; it's simply placing a marker that tells the app/album where to find the original image on your device. That's why you only get a broken box when you try to paste the image here.
You'll need to upload the actual photo to a service that hosts photos and then paste the link you get there to your forum message.
Don't blame the iPad for this, though. This forum has a very awkward way of managing photos.

The pipe's a,beauty. Did you use photo bucket, or did you use another method? I usually have to select an image on my iPad, and then switch over to my desktop to post a photo, so I'll be grateful for any specific advice you can give.
