    Help with pictures please

    I canít get pictures to work. Flat out canít. The only thing I have to use is my iPhone 8. I had gotten picture to work once before by saving a thumbnail from a resized image I had used on another forum where it automatically resizes but now I get errors about file type if I try that method. If anybody knows the trick to making it work then please share. It may have to be a very detailed walkthrough because I have tried everything I know to try. I have a couple thing to put up on pay it forward and I will not do it without a pic, so Iím at a really bad point where Iím getting frustrated and aggravated because I canít even try to give something away. Please help.

    Honestly pictures is the biggest disappointment here and the frustration with it is about to run me away from the site.

    I don't know anything about using a smart phone for posting pictures, let that be known from the start. My question would be, what format are the pictures saved in. If not a JPEG try to convert them. Also, I can't remember for sure but there may be a sticky about posting pictures.

    I have been through the sticky and it didn’t get me going. As far as file type goes, I’m not sure. I think I will have to email a picture to myself at work to see.

    hello there Mr. West

    from your iphone, you should use a web picture place like "post image" to easily get your pics on here.

    Once loaded there, your picture is just a couple clicks away.

    here is a link. you do not need an account. https://postimages.org

    load your image there, and then you can post the image through a URL upload. much easier on our server here as well. feel free to PM me if you still have questions about the process, I can walk you through it.

    have a great day,

    Marko

    awesome Jak..

    i do believe he is having a sizing issue with his phone. rather then trying to resize on his phone, sounds like a hosting service will be much easier for him.

    That seems like my issue, but I’m a bit surprised that it’s still an issue after I screenshot the still and try to upload the screenshot. That has always worked for me when I have had filesize issues, but having played with it a bit more tonight it does seem to be a filesize thing. Apparently some of the online pages are using a program to rewrite file type to designate images as originating from internet sources and saving those at lower resolution and trying to post that way also doesn’t work. I may have to direct link from a host. I thought I was past the photobucket days but maybe I’m not.

    Take a screen shot of the photo thats on your phone, that you want to upload. This will reduce the size. And the file type jpg.

    The go " advanced" Then manage attachments. Find photo. Upload.

    I used my iPhone 7 to take this picture.

    Refer to the instructions that jakharath posted above.

    Select From Computer, then select "Choose File".

    This displayed three options on my phone: Photo Library, Take Photo or Video, and Browse.
    I selected Photo Library, tapped the photo, selected Choose.

    The popup updated indicated 1 photo. Repeat the process to choose more than 1 photo (but I did not try that).

    I then selected "Upload File(s)", which did not really look like a button.

    The photo was uploaded and attached to my post. I edited this text in afterward since it was not Fun doing it on the iPhone.

    Hope this helps,
    Tim

    I got a photo resizing app. That’s not super easy but it works.

    Anybody know the actual max filesize?

    something keeps whispering at me that the filesize is 1 mb or less.. but i am getting old and memory full error is something I experience daily.
