    Thumbs Up [Guide] How to upload Screenshots/Pictures from iDevices on this forum. Videos too.

    A Mini Guide to uploading of screenshots/Pictures from iDevices to your forum post

    Introduction
    Okay, I created this mini guide as I've seen quite alot of forum members having trouble posting screenshot of their bases or anything coc-related on this forum.
    As the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words".
    A person might go rambling on and on about certain strategy and how to attack a certain base, but without pictures, videos as evidence/proof, anyone can call him a troll.
    Its like the "Anti-wb th9 base" thread at strategy Sub-forum, link: http://forum.supercell.net/showthrea...break-th-lvl-9
    Not to mention, with more screenshot, videos on this forum, the more we can learn.
    Sharing is caring right ?

    Thread History

    So here goes~

    1) How to take screenshot with your iDevices (G.P.1)

    Step 1: Press the Sleep and Home Button on your device at the same time.
    Step 2: Make sure there is a "Snap" sound and the screen blink white once.
    Step 3: The screenshot is now in the "Photos" library of your iDevice, complete.

    2) Uploading of Images from iDevices via computer wirelessly (G.P.2) (Recommended)

    Step 1: Search and download Bump for your idevice in the App Store
    Step 2: Once Bump is install on your idevice, Sign up and login on it, you only have to login once.
    Step 3: Go to "Setting" on your iDevice, Privacy > Location Services, and enable Location Service for "Bump"
    Step 4: Go to https://bu.mp/ on your computer. Bookmark as per necessary.
    Step 5: In "Bump" on your iDevice, scroll right to "Photos"
    Step 6: Tap on the photos that you wish to transfer
    Step 7: Tap your iDevice on the space bar on your computer(I'm not kidding !). Personally I use the top left edge of my iphone and tap on the spacebar.
    Step 8: Click "Connect" once there is a pop up on your iDevice
    Step 9: Once photo is completely upload on your computer, right click the image and "Copy Image Location"
    Step 10: In your post on this forum, type this
    [img]Paste Image Location here[/img]
    Step 11: Complete

    Troubleshooting: Bump's FAQ: http://bu.mp/company/faq#computer

    Q1) The pop up doesn't appear on my iDevice/ My iDevice can't connect with my computer
    A1) Make sure you tap on the space bar hard enough with your iDevice.
    A2) Make sure location service for "Bump" is enabled. Check out Step 3 again.

    3) Uploading of Images from iDevices via computer(PC) using cable (G.P.3)
    Step 1: Connect your iDevice to your laptop/computer via the 30-pin or Lightning cable
    Step 2: On your computer, Press Start > Computer.
    Step 3: Double click on your iDevice under "Portable storage"
    Step 4: Double click on Internal storage
    Step 5: Double click on DCIM, and enter the folder all the way
    Step 6: Your photo library should all be there.

    Step 7: Go to www.photobucket.com, sign up if you have not
    Step 8: Upload your image there
    Step 9: From Library, get the "Direct Link" of your image

    Step 10: In your post on this forum, type this
    [img]Paste Image Location here[/img]
    Step 11: Complete

    4) Uploading of Images from idevices via the device itself using tinypic or imgur (G.P.4)
    Step 1: Go to www.tinypic.com or www.imgur.com using your iDevice browser (Safari, Chrome, Opera mini, Dolphin etc)
    Step 2: Follow instructions on the website and choose image from your photo library
    Step 3: Copy the Image Location/Direct Link
    e.g www.clashofclans.com/example.jpg
    Step 4: In your post on this forum, type this
    [img]Paste Image Location here[/img]
    Step 5: Complete

    5) Uploading of Images from iDevices via the device itself using photobucket app (G.P.5)
    FYI, imgur has their own app as well, its in the app store, same method.
    Step 1: Download Photobucket from the app store
    Step 2: Sign in to your account on "Photobucket" on your iDevice
    Step 3: Under "My Albums", click on the photo you wish to upload
    Step 4: Click on "i" at the bottom right hand corner
    Step 5: Click on the box that is infront of the word "IMG", which copies the direct link and the tags for the image
    Step 6: In your post on this forum, just paste whatever you have copied from the photobucket app.
    Step 7: Complete

    6) How to take video/screencast with your iDevices (G.V.1)
    I will not be teaching you how to take screencast here.
    There are basically 2 methods.
    1) Display Recorder for Jailbroken devices. Recording of screencast using the iDevice itself. No Audio !
    (Do take note that there are "fake" display recorder in the app store, please read description carefully to prevent yourself from getting scam)
    2) Reflector for recording of screen cast with the use of a laptop/computer.
    Please refer to the following tutorial videos on youtube

    Display Recorder: ClashOfClansYT's Tutorial Video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OE0f-vL_bzE

    Reflector: Simon Tay's Tutorial Video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zk5S9NqUbc


    7) How to download video on the internet (G.V.2)
    Step 1: On Mozilla Firefix, go to top left corner, click on "Add-ons"
    Step 2: Search for "DownloadHelper" by "Mig" and install it
    Step 3: Go to the page with the video, say your clan's facebook page
    Step 4: Top left corner, the downloadhelper icon should be spinning. Click on it and click on the video you wish to download
    Step 5: Go to My Computer > Local Disk (C) > Users > your account > dwhelper
    Step 6: The video should be there.
    Step 7: Complete.
    Step 8: Upload to youtube as per necessary and follow the next step on how to upload youtube video on this forum.

    8) How to Upload youtube video onto this forum (G.V.3)
    Step 1: At the youtube video, click on the URL and copy the entire link.
    Example: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zk5S9NqUbc"
    Step 2: On your post in this forum, type
    {video]Paste Video Link here{/video]
    // Replace '{' with '['
    Step 3: Complete

    9) Credits (G.C.1)

    Not bad my friend. Will be helpful for the Newcomers. A few suggestions:

    1. You can type [IMG]blahblahblah[/IMG] without the board applying the code. Just makes it less confusing with the ignore the { thingy.

    2. Add examples of what a code line would look like, such as

    Ex: [IMG]www.clashofclans.com/junliangnakedpic1.jpg[/IMG]

    3. Another way to upload pics straight from your iDevice without having to download any app nor signing up any account is using a hosting site such as www.tinypic.com. You can upload any pic from your photo library onto there and it will give you the [IMG] code.

    Woot all credits go to me now.

    Great guide

    just to add I use imgur it does file conversion nicely - upload the image, tap the icon next to BB code (which copies it) and then just paste into the post and game on
    Now retired from YouTube, feel free to say hi I always like a good chat
    I still run my twitter account it's @daddy_clash (although I rarely tweet)
