    Usually you will need to host the photo at a free photo hosting site, then use the forum tools to post an inline image using the link to the image at the photo hosting site.

    I see the photo sharing site Minus (and others) offers a iOS app you can use to post photos to host.

    So you would use the iOS Minus app to post your photo to Minus, then using the same app copy the URL (link) to the photo. Then go back to the news forum and post an in line image of that link.

    Here is what the link would look like when you post it. This varies by what software the news forum uses.

    I myself use photobucket when the site does not allow direct uploading. I have had the account for years. and it works when I am advertising when selling my stuff on tipidpc, or when posting

    They also have an iOS app
