Adding images to Stampboards via iPad or iPhone etc

Post by MargoZ »

Forget IMGUR or photobucket or ImageShack etc from now on.

From June 1, 2020, since our major tech update, you can add images here directly from your phone or laptop or tablet etc -

I'm sure I'm missing something here.....I am having trouble post pics thru IMGUR. Msg says "Not able to determine dimensions of picture"! Can someone tell me if I need to change something here? Picture dimentions are well below 800 pixels, etc.
Thanks

The introductory post talks about Photobucket, but I thought that we are using Imgur?
Are there any instructions on how to upload photos from a smartphone or tablet (say an IPad) please?

Well this thread is 3 years old. :roll: :roll:

We no longer use photobucket as they held all images to a $US400 a year ransom per user. Use IMGUR for all images here please.

Thanks

The problem that I have is that, I cannot upload stamps on here via IGMUR on an iPad. I have tried both the app and the website. Neither of them allow me to upload as per the instructions. Neither is set up like the first post on how to upload photos.

I was wondering if there was any way of doing it via IGMUR on an iPad. The only way that I can do it, is if I send the photos to me, download them onto my computer and upload that way.

From the Imgur website:

"iOS App
Hit the camera icon in the bottom center of the screen. You can take a photo using your camera, upload from your phone's gallery, or from ‘Reaction’ (a collection of funny GIFs). After selecting all of the images you'd like to upload, tap the next button top right.

The option to make the image(s) private or submitted publicly to the gallery can be decided by selecting the ‘public’ option below the post title text box. The "Hidden" option will simply upload the images, so make sure you're logged into your account if you want to save the link. The "Public" option will upload the post and also publish it into the public gallery, which follows our community rules...."

The short answer is, that if there is a way it defeats me too.

I've tried pretty much everything and played with every setting I can find but there is no way of doing it.

All I normally do is take the image on the iPhone or iPad, upload to imgur and then go in on my laptop to edit to the correct size and grab the correct link for these boards.

That's fine, but unless you can change the size of your the photo taken on the iPhone or iPad before uploading to Imgur, you are still stuffed when it comes to putting it on Stampboards because, as it says on the 'Editing images' help page on Imgur (https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/210077233-Editing-Images):

"Currently editing is only available using desktop and not on our apps or mobile web."

So it is possible to add files, but you still need the desktop site to change the size. Given those constraints the other option - which works if you have a few images - is to email them or message them to yourself from the iPad/Phone, open the message/email on your computer and download the photos.

Then from Finder, drag and drop to the Imgur desktop site having selected the appropriate folder and checked the image size in Imgur upload settings.

Imgur on iPad is fine for memes and using images where size doesn't matter (like a blog). But where size limitations are enforced, such as here, then the images cannot be added.

If you had recently viewed the selling page you may have seen the issues I had uploading photos directly from an iPhone as they were uploading sideways despite being the correct way round on my phone.

Thanks to excellent help from members JonEboy, Bennitch and KenLondon I have been able to rectify this glitch by rotating the images 360 degrees in my phone photos and then saving them again.

All photos then uploaded the correct way round. I hope this will also help others who prefer using their phone for images over scanning.
