Posting pictures from an iPhone?

Is it possible to post pictures directly from an iPhone? If so, can I have a lesson please?
Ta.

I don't have an iPhone so can't provide a definitive answer - but google suggests:

1. This is a wider problem than just uploading attachments to RIBnet / vBulletin forums - the iPhone Safari browser doesn't support html file upload.
2. That the common work around is to upload to a picture sharing site using an "app" rather than the browser and then include the link on the forum article. e.g. Flickr (using the Flickr iPhone app) or the equivalent for Photobucket.
3. The alternative would require JK to add some 3rd party components to the site (e.g. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=240652)which would then enable you, via a $2 app to upload pictures (as well as gaining other browser benefits). That might be slightly more likely than with a normal "feature request", because John is a big iPhone fan anyway.

I'm surprised the iphone cannot do such a simple task without an app.. The P800 had the capability years ago. As does the nokia 5800.. See attached

Sorry, was out on a boat taking photos with my iPhone . . .

. . . then faffed around emailed them to myself on my PC so I could upload them here.

This is something that I've had on my list for a while now. The most likely solution would probably be Tapatalk, but I'm open to other options - any thoughts?

Forumrunner looks a bit better laid out and simpler to use than Tapatalk imo but any iPhone app would get plenty of use by me
