As I've mentioned in another thread, I'm leaving tomorrow to go ski Portillo. I'm trying to take along as little extraneous junk as possible and awhile back I bought an iPad2, thinking I could do all my computer stuff without taking the computer. So far, everything like browsers and email and photo dumping and such work fine.
I just realized yesterday, however, that I seem to be unable to use the iPad to take a photo from iPhoto (or editing app PhotoGene) and post it in an EpicSki thread.
I've tried putting the photo on Flickr, copying the image location URL, and then pasting it into the reply box on Epic via the image tool, but the only option I get when I click on the image tool with the iPad is an "Enter the image URL" dialog box. When I paste the image url into the box and hit "Okay", the screen changes, it blinks, then returns to the reply box but nothing has happened.
I do get a little note saying "The rich text editor is not compatible with your browser. You may see some HTML source displayed. AnyBBCode you enter will be converted to HTML when you save."
I've also tried copy/paste from the image page on Flickr, but when I paste it into the EpicSki reply box, all I get is the image identifier text, not the image itself.
Does anybody have a solution to this problem. I'm a moron about computers, so no suggestion should assume that I know anything.
I'm really trying to avoid taking the laptop along, but as it stands right now I can't post photos in my Portillo trip reports using only the iPad.
Can you help?
