    Apologies if in the wrong section. I struggle to easily embed photos on the web so you can see them directly rather than just having a link.

    I currently use flikr which works ok via a laptop but if I understand it right you need to upload an image, then select it and right click to get the proper details to paste into a post so it is directly visible rather thsn via a link. This doesnt seem to work via my ipad or Galaxy S3.

    Generally I would like to know if there a more easily used method for doing this. Especially something smart phone or ipad friendly?

    Specifically. I already have a good few photos on my S3 of things I want to sell which is my main aim today or tomorrow. I dont even know how to get the photos off the phone yet.

    Thanks for any advice forthcoming :)

    I'm on Flickr and it's a real pain trying to get to the links now.
    Before they revamped the link details showed regardless of the size being viewed.
    Now you have to go through various stages to get there :mad:

    I use Imgur. Simple, fast, and there's a great chrome plugin that let's you one click rehost any image you see online. You can also upload areas of a webpage to get round any site that disables right clicking with JavaScript.

    Lets see if this works. I'm sitting in the living room watching TV and reading this on my ipad. I open the photobucket app and take a picture using the upload icon. I tap the picture to copy a link. Then I open the browser and create this reply:-

    Wow. I never knew it could be done so easily. It takes me nearly 30 mins to do one post !!

    Flickr has much better image quality. I rarely use photobucket anymore.

    Dropbox for Android will automatically upload all photos as they're taken & has numerous share options including a link.
