[Neil Horning] Not a developer here, but I think they can send in images through all the means besides sms, unless SMSsync has been dramatically modified.
[Neil Horning] We are on an older version
[Annaliza Mayor] Oh I see. I will check that

[Annaliza Mayor] Another thing, in case users will send post via email, if configured correctly, it will show up in the website?

[David Losada, Ushahidi] hi, we are looking into attached / linked image processing for email and twitter ( ushahidi/platform#1687 ) . The recently released mobile app allows sending images, but right now the app only works with deployments under the ushahidi.io domain. We are working on making the app work with self-hosted deployments like yours, Annaliza ( ushahidi/platform-mobile#103 )
[Annaliza Mayor] Oh I see. Thank you for the information
[David Losada, Ushahidi] If a post is sent via email, twitter or SMS , it first goes by default to the “Unknown” category, waiting for a human with elevated enough privileges to moderate and structure the post.
