One of the most common problems that people have on WaGuns (or any forum!) is posting photos. Good photos can make a big difference when you're selling an item, showing off your new toy, or telling us what you did last weekend . . . and fortunately, it's easy to post them!

There are many ways to post pics, but here is one easy method:

If you are using the full version of the WaGuns website from your computer:

1) Go to https://postimage.io.
2) Set the top drop-down box to "800x600."
3) Leave the second drop-down box on "No expiration."
4) Click "Choose Images," find your photo on the computer, then click "Open" or "Choose."
5) Give the photo a moment to upload . . . relax. :bigsmile:
6) Highlight and copy (Ctrl-C for Windows, Command-C for Mac, or Edit-Copy in the menu) the "Direct link" code in the second box.
7) In your WaGuns post, paste the code (Ctrl-V for Windows, Command-V for Mac, or Edit-Paste in the menu).
8) Highlight the code that you just pasted, then click the "Img" box on WaGuns that is up above the text box in which you are typing.
9) Click Submit, you're good to go. thumbsup

If you are using the mobile version of the WaGuns website from your phone or tablet's web browser:

My preferred method: Email the photo to yourself, then open it on the computer and follow the instructions above!

Otherwise:

1) Download the free Imgur app called "imgapp", if you don't already have it.
2) Open imgapp. Tap the three horizontal lines in the upper left corner.
3) Scroll down and tap "Upload, Anonymous."
4) Tap "Choose image."
5) Locate or take your photo.
6) Tap "Upload."
7) The URL of your photo will be shown on the screen. "Select all" and COPY that URL.
8) Exit imgapp and go back to WaGuns in your web browser.
9) In your WaGuns post, type the following:
Code:
[img]<paste the photo URL here>.jpg[/img]

It will look like this example:
Code:
[img]http://imgur.com/WYxd9LG.jpg[/img]

Make sure you type the ".jpg" after the photo URL, as well as typing the [img] tags!

(See why it's easier to just email it to yourself and do it on the computer?)

If you are using the Tapatalk app on your phone or tablet::

1) While typing your WaGuns post, click the "camera" button to take a new photo or the "photo" button (little picture of the mountain) to use an existing photo.
2) Take or locate your photo.
3) Choose "Medium 480x640."
BAM, you're done.

There are numerous other ways to post photos, and some of those ways are better if you want to be able to catalog your photos, access them later, etc. The methods above are not necessarily the BEST, but I think they are the EASIEST if you're just learning.

If anyone has suggestions for improvements to this post, please let me know.

If you have read the above and are still having trouble, send me a PM and I'll be happy to help. :cheers2:

It appears that Tinypic has taken a long-term dump on us, so I have re-written the instructions above to use PostImage.io instead.

Yes, there are many other ways to host photos. Here's an article with a bunch of alternatives:

That's a good question, and you're not the only one who has the issue.

I just posted a few pics directly from my phone (iPhone 7 Plus), and they all came out right-side-up regardless of whether I viewed them on the phone or on my computer. I tried posting with the phone in both orientations, and that didn't matter.

When your photos come out sideways, if you click them to zoom then they turn right side up.

I researched this a bit a few weeks ago, and it seemed to be related to iPhones.

What kind of phone are you using? Is your phone operating system up to date?

All right, cmica is schooling me here and I think he’s right. It seems to be related to the orientation of the phone when you take the photo.

I’m posting this from my phone.

Here’s a pic taken with the phone upright (portrait):

And here’s a pic taken with the phone sideways (landscape):

^ Click on either of those photos, and they will appear correct when zoomed. But in the original view, the photo that was taken with the phone upright is turned sideways.

I haven't seen a way to fix it. :(

OK. This one I took in portrait mode, but then I edited the photo to rotate it a few times . . . all the way back to the original orientation.

And it seems to be fine.
