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!

Here's an easy method to post pics:

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

1) Go to http://tinypic.com/.
2) Click "Browse," find your photo on the computer, then click "Open."
3) Leave tags blank, and leave file type as "Image."
4) In the drop-down box for Resize, select 800x600.
5) Click Upload Now.
If you don't see the confirmation code or otherwise have trouble, turn off any ad-blocker or flash-blocker that you might be using.

Wait for the upload to complete, and then:

6) Highlight the entire code in the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" box.
7) Type Ctrl-C to copy it.
8) In your WaGuns post, type Ctrl-V to paste the code.
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:

On a Mac, open the photo in Preview, select Tools--Adjust Size, and in the freshly opened window select in the "Fit Into" box 800x600 or whichever of the other multitude of options it gives you that will make the image small enough for the site to upload.

At the bottom of the 'Adjust Size' window, it will tell you how big the file will be before you save the modified version.

I browse the full site on my iPhone so no clue how it works on the mobile site.
