    Hi - did a quick search of this forum and the FAQ. Still can not figure this out. Is it possible to EASILY post an image directly from the iPhone into a post on the forums? For example, I have seen many people posting their iPhone screenshots and I assumed they were doing it right from the device. But, I see no easy way to do that. Are they really uploading to a 3rd party site like Flickr and then pasting in the URL? I tried using the mobile MacRumors WAP site, but that did not seem to offer the ability to post images.

    Anyway, I am sure there is an obvious answer. I just can't seem to figure it out. :)

    Thank you.

    I don't know if there's an easier way but I just upload the photos to Flickr or MobileMe and copy the link to post in Macrumors. If you have MobileMe it's a little easier than from Flickr.

    There is a similar thread here. Unless the 3.0 software changed anything, it's a limitation of Safari which doesn't provide any way to select existing files/images from your iPhone. There's not much that can be done about it besides uploading via a separate app. ImageShack has a free app that looks to do what you want.
