When I take a picture with my iPhone 4 and I want to upload them to a site like craigslist or etsy, the upload or browse button is always gray so it doesn't allow me to do it. I try going to my desktop but the pictures arent there. I have the cloud and wifi enabled but the pics don't go onto my computer. So I try emailing them to myself through gmail but I cant get the pics to completetly come off the email when I download them. I am at a complete loss and this is way more complicated than it should be, can anyone help me?
The press has said that this fall's release of iOS 6 will provide a standard file-upload element will work as you expect, allowing you to choose or take a photo to upload. See this article for more information.
I was as frustrated as you about the problems regarding inter-device file transfer. Not being able to upload files from the browser is the climax (iOS 6 may come to rescue here), but until then try my Open Source software cross copy to get the photos from your device onto your desktop:
- install and open the App "cross copy"
- on your computer browse to http://cross-copy.net
- enter the same codeword
- pick your photo on the phone, it will instantly appear as downloadable item on the webpage
