There are a lot of ways to get your pictures onto TEG, here are a few:
  1. On your computer (for example from your desktop or Windows Explorer) "copy" the image file, then in the editor "paste" the file.
  2. If you have an image in your computer's "clipboard" you can just paste or CTRL-V it into a post
  3. Or, you can click "Upload a File"



Here's a great video on some cool ways to insert pics:

(oh, and you can also embed videos too! :) )

Great job everybody that is already uploading pics! One cool feature we added: Once you upload a pic, they will automatically be populated into the top of the homepage of the forum and randomly displayed. Here's what it looks like right now:

Ummm, i'm not sure if i can upload any pictures from my ipad. I was not able to at the old TEG, but got excited about the Copy and Paste...but it doesnt seem to work for me :/ the Upload a File button has the choose file greyed out - not available. Any thoughts?

Which iOS version is on your device?

All older versions of iOS are unable to upload files from the Safari browser. That is not related to this software, Safari does not allow you to upload files from any website.

Fortuantely I believe this changed in iOS 6 where Apple has updated Safari to support this.

On my iPhone now, &

HOLY COW that worked perfectly!! I'm VERY happy about that!

So, if you have the newer iOS, it should work just fine.

BTW, another cool thing: I started typing on my computer, then when I went to mobile, the draft version of my post was waiting for me on my phone... that was WICKED cool!
