    So when I try to post pictures from my computer into threads, it doesn't work for me about 9 out of 10 times. Anyone else having trouble or anyone else have any tips?! I've tried making sure the name of the file is short. I've tried png's, jpg's and nothing works. Thanks

    Not sure if that system is working properly yet. It's also limited in size.

    ^ I dont think it is working properly. I was just trying to post a screen shot (71kb) today. The file size is small but if it's something like 200x200 max res I dont think anyone will be able to see a screen shot very well!

    How are you trying to post the screenshot ?

    You can use a third party hosting site like tinypic

    then select the "image" icon

    [​IMG]

    and then insert your image url

    [​IMG]


    and viola - sites like tinypc will automatically wrap the [​IMG]

    I think he is asking why the "from computer" option isn't working.

    I never use that option - third party hosting always looked better and is easily manipulated within the post

    Also, the previous version of the DroidForums app allowed image uploads. Current version 1.0.4 doesn't: "security error"

    Sent from my unrooted DroidX using DroidForums app.
