    Image hosting: Shortest way from smartphone to CA

    Hey,

    I am looking for an image service which makes it very easy to get smartphone photos to CA. It is usually the processing (rotate, resize) and the uploading that keeps from posting sketches I make on paper. Ideally, once the images are uploaded the service should be able to give me e.g. a text file with the URLs of the new images so that I can easily paste it into my sketchbook. Also, ideally, there should be an app such that I can upload the photos directly from my smartphone. All in all, the service should make it easy to get pictures shot with a smartphone into my sketchbook.

    Which service could work well for me?

    I'm curious about this as well. On my iPhone, I can't even activate the image uploader (the "Choose new file" button is greyed out).

    Perhaps this is a lack of Flash functionality on Apple products?

    I have a dumb-phone and i email them to myself and save to pc and then upload

    i know they dont like outside image hosting, but if you never delete your photobucket stuff, and PB comes with urls and img codes anddd multi upload.... that might be fast.
    like the mobile Photobucket on your smart phone?

    I don't like the CA uploader at all, so I do this:

    Get a blog on Blogger.
    , or similar.
    When you want to post to CA, use the batch upload on Blogger (photos go to Google Picasa Web Album) and then copy the HTML code after those are uploaded and inserted into the post.
    Then use a HTML to BBCode converter
    .
    Voila.

    I find this very quick, efficient and easy, plus it makes posting the same thing in multiple places (CA, Tumblr, Blogger ect) reeeal easy.

    This works from my Android phone too, using the Blogger app. I assume it'd work for iOS too

    (If you want to change the size of the thumbnail images, copy the HTML/BBCode into Notepad and use find/replace all to replace '320' with something like '800'. That number represents the width of the posted thumbnails in pixels.)
