    is there any talented developer / coder capable of creating the following Addon ?

    Automagic Mobile-Phone photo-shoot:

    This is the process for a user:

    user clicks onto a button at the Forum-Editor.
    This button is named "shoot photo".

    user makes a photo-shoot with his mobile phone.

    photo gets automatically optimized (decrease MB-size to certain KB-size).

    photo gets automagically posted into a Forum-thread.

    user clicks onto "submit" in order to post his photo into the Forum-thread.

    That's pretty cool idea I guess with the increased usage of mobile + photos. Would not have any use on my forums but it's a good idea nonetheless.

    Wouldn't that require a native app though?

    @erich37 I tested your idea with my Android 4.3 on Google Chrome and it works. :) When I click the upload file button then I am asked which app to choose and I choose the cam and when the taken photo fits the requirements it will be uploaded. The only problem I had, the photo must fit the requirements, in my case the file size. That should be auto resolved in the future.

    there are many websites which provide this feature.

    Especially "Classifieds-websites" like for example http://shpock.com/en/ are growing like crazy just because of this feature. I believe it is just 1 click (taking the photo) and the image is uploaded automagically.

    I have never used Instagram, but I believe it is based on the same concept (besides the photo-filter which alters the appearance of the image itself).

    Anyway, I think if this process could be simplified and properly integrated into Forums, then Forum-Communities will pick up a lot in terms of user-grow and user-participation.....
