How to Upload Pictures From a Smartphone to Craigslist


You can upload photos to Craigslist from any smartphone that has a working "Browse" function for images. The website offers no camera-compatible functionality, so the images you want to upload should already be on the phone prior to creating the post. As long as you're using the Craigslist image uploader, you can include 12 pictures in a post. If you use an app, the number of images may be limited by the app developers.

  • Navigate to Craigslist on your smartphone's browser app, tap "My Account" and log in with your username or email address and password. If you don't have an account, create one so you can create, edit and manage postings.

  • Tap "New Posting," select the location where you want to make the post from the drop-down menu and then tap "Go."

  • Select the type of post you're making, tap "Continue" and then refine the post by the options provided. For example, a post selling an item will require that you choose the type of item you're selling. Posts made in a large geographic area may ask you to refine the area from which you're selling the item.

  • Title your ad, enter the text and then tap "Continue."

  • Tap "Browse," locate the file on your smartphone and then tap it to select the image. Repeat to upload additional images to your post -- you can include 12 in one Craigslist ad. When you've selected all of your images, tap "Done with Images."

  • Review your post, and then click "Publish" to submit it to Craigslist.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your smartphone won't allow you to search for images from the browser application, download a Craigslist application to make posts with photos (links in Resources).
  • If you're connected to your mobile provider's data network, it may take longer to upload the images than if you were connected to Wi-Fi.
  • Craigslist is removing the ability to use externally hosted images on for-sale postings in 2013.
