How to upload photos on this forum?!

What a ridiculously arduous task just to upload a photo on this forum! Could someone please let me know the easiest way to do this?

Thanks

Scroll down to Additional Options - Attach Files - Manage Attachments. Then Choose Files. When done selecting your photo, there is an Upload Button on the right side. Done.

Here's a great free software to reduce multiple photos and add your copyright/logo.

I've used it for years.

If using a desktop/laptop base, I just use "paint" built in software, to resize pics.

For a forum that relies so heavily on pictures, I agree it's way too much of a pain. Even if it's not technically difficult, it's still a pain. It's 2018... the forum software should automatically resize the photos. I've lately just used Tapatalk and that works well.

I gave up when the size restrictions were rolled out here, I tried several things after, but nothing worked. No patience for it, so I just now enjoy the smarter memberís pics.

Tapatalk is great (maybe). Just be aware that it is a well disguised spyware application. It constantly collects data on you. You should start seeing a lot more targeted ads after you start using it.

It was a bit of a pain at first but possible. Get a picture resize app and save original picture as resized so no confusion. Just sync to PC/MAC or send from phone.

It is hard for people running forum in their spare time to cope with big pictures. Perhaps in a future update if there is available software and it is relatively simple the administrators could perhaps find a way of automatically resizing pictures from the forums end? Mind you this is all free so no complaints.

A few hyper members and a fair amount of bole-ox talked.

Most are great, though.

Have to agree its amazing today with all these electronic gadgets many have no idea how to shrink a picture, when there are hundreds of free apps all platforms that will do it for you.Or just open a free account on image hosting site like say Imgur, then upload picture they will resize it then just copy the forum code then past in forum its simple to do.
