..but you need to edit your instructions, because it still says you can't do it.

How do we do such a thing?smilesmile

When you're on a topic that allows pictures (like Have you seen this or the cake topic) or on your photo page on your profile, the's a button that says Choose File. Touch it and you get a choice of Take Photo or Video and Choose existing. The video doesn't work, but if you choose take photo it takes you to your camera and Choose existing goes to your photo app.

If you take a picture, you have to make sure the iPad is the right way up or it comes out upside down on the thread, but I've forgotten which way is right.

Hang on, I'll just check....

Home button has to be on the right.

Actually, it would be useful if Site Stuff were a photo thread, because then we could post screen shots of our problems...

Actually we can't take credit for that. I think it's a result of an update from Apple.....

Oh well, you can keep the flowers anyway...

Don't you think having it on Site Stuff would be useful for screen shots?

That's a really good idea, RustyBear. We'll see what we can do. Thank you.
