How to add multiple pics to one post

I'm using an ipad 2.
When I go to manage attachments it works fine, I "choose existing photo".
But when I want to repeat in the same post it replaces the the image already uploaded instead of adding an image. Why?

87 Milano Platinum
76 Alfetta GT race car
70 Fulvia 1.3 Rally S
68 Fiat 850

After you choose the first photo, it should return you to the attachment management panel. At that point you must click "upload" to move it from your device to the AlfaBB server. Then, after it has uploaded, you can repeat for a total of 5 pictures.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

When I repeat it after it's uploaded it simply replaces the image that's already there.

This happens when you try to upload pictures with the same name. Make sure the pictures have different names on your ipad before you select them for upload to AlfaBB.

'63 2600 Touring Spider (AR 191437, the car that started the 2000/2600 International Register, reassembly in progress)
ex-'65 2600 SZ (AR 856043, now being restored in Austria)
Maintainer of a private 2600 SZ register (not the one in the Netherlands).

That's unfortunately not possible on an iPad since the pictures does not have file names in the traditional sense.

When you upload a picture from an iPhone or an iPad like that, the pictures are all called "image.jpg" (or the language equivalent for non-english iPads/iPhones). Same thing happens when you email them off of the device.

It's super irritating and a real PITA to work around ...
