    Default Computer Dumb Member Needs Pic Posting Help. How do i Post Pics From my iPhone?

    ...sigh..well I have been a member here for years. At first posting pics from my photobucket account was working fine but now does not work at all. I have found after much trial and error using 3 different digital cameras that in the end my iPhone 6 takes the most accurate beam shots. Is there a way to post those? I feel really stupid and am embarrassed having to post this question....

    Use imgur.com. You can upload from mobile or download the imgur app.

    I use imgur.com but get an "invalid" file every time I try to post a picture on this site? Tips?

    Are you using both the correct (BB Code) "link" and the correct (IMG) tags ?

    Hold down on the image and copy the image address, not the url on top of the page

    There is a variety of links available on the imgur site - "Image link", "Direct link", "Markdown link", "Html", "BBCode", "Linked BBCode". Which is the one to use?

    I think I use Direct Link with the tags.

    Not sure what to tell you, since that is exactly what works for me ....

    You are welcome to post a "test" photo here in this thread, following that exact procedure above, and I can try to take a look to see if there is some obvious error ?

    I can't post because of the error message, but this is what I am pasting into the box:
