How to Insert Photo on Active Rain Blog From iPad

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Leading Edge 71785

How to Insert a RENAMED Photo on an Active Rain Blog Post Directly From an iPad.

William Johnson and I have just hit a home run. Actually we have hit it WAY out of the park. 

Download the 2014 app of the year called Pixelmator.

This enables you to rename the photo. This is the big Active Rain iPad photo insertion glitch. 

Then insert the photo in your post taking the regular steps as if you were on a desktop. Press the upload button over and over until it works.

Welcome below to a photo of my iPhone 6 plus cover. I found it on when I googled golden retriever iPhone 6 plus case. Yep, it's Golden and so are these newfound instructions.

Thanks, William, again. Two heads are better than one. New iPhone Six Plus case

Cheryl, this is exactly why I don't blog from my iPad. Now I can try this picture app. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

This should definately get featured.  I know a lot of people with this issue.  I don't regularly use iPad, but I do when I travel.

Cheryl- you must have ESP!  I just upgraded to the iPadAir2 and was going to give you a call about this.  You and William are amazing.

Kathy Streib Let's find another excuse to chat! This took hours and hours to figure out so it is very good news that you were on the same wavelength! I figured if it was app of the year no way would it not rename photos. You can download iPicky enhanced photos to Dropbox and then open the dropbox app to use the collages as another FYI.

Cheryl, thank you for sharing this solution.  It would be nice if AR would fix the issue especially since they are concerned about mobile applications otherwise.  Until then, this sounds like a good solution.  Thank you!

Cheryl -  I suspect one of the reasons I have not been as present recently is due in part to how frustrating it has been to insert photos in blogs - thanks a milion to both of you & Happy New Year!
