I have an android phone and have not been able to figure out how to post pictures from the phone... When I get to manage attachements the browse button to find the photo to post does not work. Wondering if anyone knows of any work arounds? I usually end up emailing the photo to my phone to myself and post them using my desk top computer but looking to see if there is a trick to do it from the phone.

Also wondering if the experience is the same on the iPhone.

Did a little more research on this.... Seems like the only way to accomplish this either on the Apple or Android mobile devices like phones or tablets is to get the photos into some sort of photo sharing site like photo bucket. One there, it's assigned a URL (web address)

When you go into manage attachments rather then choose upload from computer choose URL. Since the photo is on the sharing site, you need to get the URL from the photo hosting site and copy and paste the URL.

Not sure why this is like this and it's my understanding that even more current versions of V bulletin apparently have this limitation.

Does android have the photo bucket app like iPhone ? If so get it , it is much easier to manage photos that way, although I still haven't figured out how to put them into thumbnails...

Yes - Photo Bucket is available for Android as a free app.

Its a lot easier then what you suggested. Download a photo reducer app from your market. Open and hit select image that you want to reduce. Once saved it will create a folder in your gallery. When you want to post the pictures you go to that folder and select your image to upload. No need for photo bucket.

The one I use is simply called Reduce Photo Size by shoozhoo in the app market.
