Hey gang,

So as some of you may know I live in the sticks. So I don't have a PC I rely on my phone for internet. For the last five years or so I have been using a cheap Huawei not_so_smart phone to access ats and have not been able to link photos or videos. Well, I have recently upgraded to a slightly_more_intelligent_ but_still_slightly'_challenged_not_so_smart_phone...

Now I have been able to embed videos and link outside sources, but I am still unsure how to post pics from my phone directly to ats.
If anyone could offer simple instructions I would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks in advance,


Respectfully,
~meathead

You cant. You need to upload to your ATS upload page. Use the arrow next to the profile icon and then click on upload.

From ATS homepage, hit the downward arrow, tap upload. Then you upload the picture you wish to share. You will need to have the photo on your device.

In the 'upload' menu is where your images are stored, tap on one to reveal the codes to put them into posts. The top one is to show the image directly.

Put on some mood music before you play around with it.

okay.. I uploaded a pic. But I don't see an upload menu to reveal a code when I'm in side the "post" page.


Is it possible to give me the "instructions for idiots "version please..

I am after all a meathead..

You need to copy and paste the code from the image on your upload page.

I uploaded a pic last night ...still can't find the thing I'm supposed to copy and paste..

It is what it is . I should just be happy I can embed videos I guess.

The frustration levels were off the charts this morning when I tried again..it's not worth the stroke to me lol...

Go to the upload section, click on the image and scroll down. There will be three embed codes for different purposes. Use the first one.

Your phone may not be permitting you to scroll down however.

I'm gonna go with that reason because I don't see anything when I do that.
Also in this instance I would rather blame the hardware than the user...

Is the image even popping up in a larger version when you touch the smaller one? If not, then it's your phone.

No image pops up.. I get a small black pop up window with nothing inside it.

That's the problem.

Give your phone to a 12 year old so they can resolve this.

Thanks for asking, I've been wondering the same. Now I'll be more apt to use my camera function.
