    Easiest way ( for me) is to click on the photo and email it to myself.

    Then on the incoming email , copy and paste.

    Seems daft I know:BigGrin:

    Hi Chris; thanks for the tip but I can't see what/where I can paste it to.... You might need to walk me through it! Can't get Smilies to work either..

    Hi Monty. On the question of accessing smilies on your ipad you need to log onto the forum from Safari. I had a google app and they would not work when I logged on from that.:thumb:

    Hi Monty
    Open Motorhome Fun from your iPad
    Click on the Home button (top left)
    Click 'My Profile' in the left hand column
    Click on either 'Edit profile picture' or 'Edit Avatar'
    Click on 'Choose File' (option2)
    Click on 'Choose Existing'
    This will take you into 'Photo's in your iPod
    Click on the photo you want and the photo will be inserted next to the 'Choose File button
    Click on the'Save Changes' button
    Wait a few seconds and the picture will appear either as an Avatar or as your Profile photo.

    Looks a bit long winded but they really easy one click steps

    Hi Monty I think you and I have the same Ipad problems.

    I do it like this:

    1. Choose a photo on my Ipad
    2. Click the icon that allows you to e-mail that photo.
    3. Email it to yourself
    4. Open the e-mail and hold your finger on it. Up pops a list of options including print, copy, save to camera roll etc.
    5. click on copy
    5. Go onto MHF and edit your profile and in the box where I think it asks you to enter a url push it with your finger and up will pop a paste option.
    6. Press paste.

    It works for me but a bit of a pain.

    I did learn how to do it fronm Dropbox ( I think it was called) but I soon forgot:Doh:

    Re photo upoads

    Right..... I have established that smilies work on the iPad as long as I am using Safari :Smile:
    If I try to upload a profile photo on the iPad the option to choose existing photo is greyed out :Angry:
    I have tried this morning to upload a profile photo on my desktop and although i can choose a picture the upload fails - why? :Confused:
    I have tried resizing the picture several times but no joy. Is there any help out there???:helpsos: !!!
