    I'd rather be in Sarajevo, or Istanbul (not Constantinople)

Get an account with a photo sharing service, copy/paste the link for your pic from the photo sharing site into your post.

Save it, go to 'More Reply Options', choose your picture to attach, and attach it

Thanks WC, I had no idea about that one. I always post from my phone so I don't have a More Reply Options. But if I go to my computer to post, I won't have to upload to photobucket. This could potentially save 17 seconds!

THere are two ways to add a photo. There's the method wildcard mentions, in which you upload a picture from your computer and attach it to a post. The other is what We've is talking about, where you can link any image on the internet into a post. Pick whichever makes the most sense at the time.


It's not likely to come up on a low-traffic site like this, but there are instances where the person hosting the image (as in the We've method) gets mad that it's linked and changes the image or deletes it. That happens a lot more if something goes wildly viral and suddenly the person hosting has huge bandwidth bills.

This is what I'm trying to do. I'm using the snapfish app for iPhone and copy but it doesn't seem like I have the option to paste into my post on the site. I've tried mobile and regular versions of the site. I'll admit that I find this very challenging.
