Those of us with iPhones don't have a separate memory card. Really, the only way for us to upload a photo to SparkPeople, assuming one is at home and has access to a personal computer or laptop, is to sync our iPhone to our iTunes and save their Photos onto our PC or external hard drive etc. (some people don't have their own PC to update their iTunes etc). Then we'd have to be in Spark People in whatever blog or editing our SparkPage etc, and click on the upload photos and use the Browse feature to figure out where iPhone stored our photos on the PC, and go that way.
But...what I'd really like is a unique mailer address so I can just save it as a "Contact" - and then when in iPhone and wanting to upload a photo to my SparkPeople, I can just send it to that unique-to-me-SparkPeople-address and it would just land...somewhere.. in my SparkPage? Basically, I have three contact-links like this already - one to upload photos directly from iPhone to my Facebook account , one for my TwitPic and one for my Twitter accounts...
I think this is the dilemma right now for the SparkPeople Technical Gurus, because when we upload photos into our actual Blog postings, those don't come from our SparkPage - they also come from our PC's photo file/directory. I don't know what is the best solution other then to re-jigger SparkPeople to have a central place (like Cloud??) to store our photos intended to be shown on SP and then when we are in SP, we can pull them in to our individual Post Blog, or to our Team Photo, or into our SparkPage... (I think those are the three major areas where we can post our photos so far.). As it is, if we have a photo we want in our SparkPage, and then also want to share within our Team, and maybe in a specific Blog posting, we'd end up having to upload it from our PC three different times.... Not Very Efficient!!
Sooooo these are some issues I'd like to see resolved sooner, rather than later, because I have an iPhone 3G and I really need to upgrade it soon before it conks out (debating on whether to get the 4 or the 4S, since I've not yet had a change to try out the 4S and see if Siri can even understand my deaf accent!!). That's another two-year contract renewal and a lotta photos I could be hustling up to share on SP!!

I don't think that feature is available through the app right now but you might be able to do it if you go to sparkpeople.com through Safari.

I'm sure it's the phone but I don't have access to a computer very easily and I wish I could load pics from my phone to my spark page. I mean with all the technology I still can't download pics from my phone? Ugh. Maybe one day.

Never give up. Live today. Now. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is NEVER guaranteed. Today is what we are given. Every day is a new start so make it the best.
