    Is there any way I can attach a picture in a post in these forums from my iPhone?

    Yeah, nothing easy, at least.

    You could do the following, but it would be a huge PITA.

    - Take the picture
    - Upload it to photobucket or the like using the appropriate App Store app
    - Navigate to the picture in Photobucket in Safari
    - Use the iCopy bookmarklet to copy and paste from the Photobucket page to Macrumors.

    This is really actually pretty much the one and only thing I want copy/paste for. I am mostly content with mobile Safari except for the lack of a mechanism to forum post pictures... :(

    I think that's such a nuisance that I wouldn't bother doing it. I think what a lot of people are doing if they want to make photos available is to put them in a special sub-album in Photobucket, Flickr, or whatever, and then leave the link to that album in their signature. I know one of our members who was on a world trip was doing this with his photos taken in various exotic and not-so-exotic (including Chicago :) ) places.

    Yeah, probably not worth it. I just really like the Picture forum here and it would be nice to be able to post pictures on the go.
