    For users outside Tapatalk,

    Hey everyone. I have added an "upload image" link on both the quick reply and full reply forms. This will open up postimage in another window and allow you to upload your image easier.

    When you upload your image, copy the "direct link" url, click the picture icon next to the smiley in the post editor, and paste it in.

    :)

    So this requires using a image hosting site correct? for some reason when I upload photos using tapatalk they are smaller and not clear.... and sometimes they are fine. I'm assuming this is a Tapatalk thing just weird

    We currently don't allow file uploads here due to security and copyright issues. Use something like : https://www.docdroid.net/

    Also, this thread is a backup from the old forum. You would currently use the "upload image" link next to the "post reply" button to launch postimage in it's own window.
