    I've been threatening to post pics on here for a long time now, and think it's 'bout time to get off my ass and DO IT!

    What I would like from y'all is some suggestions for doing so, I tried photobucket a couple of years ago, but couldn't get it to work worth a flip..I was using my camera then, but now I have one of them damned smartphones, and figure it should make it easier (maybe)?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions..:fingersx:

    I also would like to hear suggestions.
    I used to use a couple different hosting sites but they are no longer phone friendly and since I have the pics on the phone it is dumb to put them on the computer to post them.
    I used to use a camera with a card. Actually like that better but phone cameras are getting better and better.Even zoom.

    Go to the media tab then open up your media then select add media then select to an album then select pics and upload file. Then you can open the pic and select the share image link to paste into the thread. make sure the files aren't too big.

    Easy. I don't know what its official name is but I call this space where I type the "dialog box". So, you kinda need two screens open at the same time. You need your photos on one side and this page open on the other side.

    What I do is type whatever I'm gonna type in this dialog box and then space down to where you want your pics to be. Then, I drag a photo into this dialog box and let it go. You can drag multiple photos up to around ten but I usually stop at eight or nine.

    Next, you'll see those photos under the dialog box all in a line. The top option is all of the photos and you want to click "Full Image". When you do that, they'll automatically load. Like this:

    1F91C79D-CAD6-4C6A-AE70-E82C638DD959_1_105_c.jpeg 2AF4A540-6105-47BD-87F2-9D082208A0E1_1_105_c.jpeg 5EA0A105-312F-499C-8C8C-3F9B6525BD5E_1_105_c.jpeg

    You can load them one at a time and double space after each one and it looks like this:

    1F91C79D-CAD6-4C6A-AE70-E82C638DD959_1_105_c.jpeg

    2AF4A540-6105-47BD-87F2-9D082208A0E1_1_105_c.jpeg

    5EA0A105-312F-499C-8C8C-3F9B6525BD5E_1_105_c.jpeg

    Does that explain it? You don't need a photo hosting site like Imgur to load pics here. It's a very user friendly site for loading photos.

    I only do the forum from my phone when I'm not sitting at a pc, which is usually never...

    That is the problem with posting is picture size and resizing it within the IPhone 7plus.

    I do it all with my iPhone, and I use post images.com. Pull them up from photo library, let it load , no resizing, pull up hot links for forums, go back to the thread copy paste insert done[​IMG]

    Cheers
