How do these folks get pics posted that you could not see an entire pic with a 70Ē big screen TV. Even on a regular computer screen you cannot see the entire pic. What the H###?

9 times out of 10 itís not done on purpose. Looks like itís a tapatalk issue. The pics load fine and normal when viewed in tapatalk but appear as a large picture when viewed on a lap top or through safari. And not sure if there is a fix for it.

When I come across a thread with huge pics I just hit the back button and move on.

Yeah, donít get it. All you have to do is select ďsmallĒ when prompted when posting a pic. Itís not rocket surgery.

Oh man, I was thinking this exact thing the other day.

Then soon thought, isn't it awesome when others use the quote option and re-post those monster pics over and over again. (sarcasm)

Unfortunately I often do the same as sendit and back out, but man some are great pics and in threads that I follow. Just sucks I guess.

That’s the problem. Tapatalk doesn't always give you the option to select size. Sometimes it just uploads the picture...Sometimes it prompts the select size option. It’s been a crap shoot with it. Either way when you view tbh through tapatalk there’s never any big pictures posted that I’ve seen.

Then you have Einstein come along and quote it all over again. You can remove the pictures when you quote someone. Seeing them once is enough.

It seems there is a disconnect between the Tapatalk app and the website interfaces. This is likely something that would need to be addressed between Tapatalk & vBulletin to get this sorted out.

You running Android phone?

Seems like some before were running Android and no option for pic size

On the Tapacrap app they are all the same size and fit the phone screen, then you have to zoom in to see whatever is in the pic

Only thing I use Tpacrap for is to make a post I want to add pics to.

It eats battery on my phone and uses a bunch of data too

I upgraded to Tapatalk Pro a while back and things were running fairly smooth, until the last thread I started here recent.

It has been giving you the option to choose picture size. This time it didnít and the pics posted huge. It looked fine on Tapatalk. Guess it just glitches out from time to time.

My point was most times this happens, itís not done on purpose.

If you load one pic at a time. Now tapatalk lets you load multiple photos. If you do this, it doesn't give you a size option. I found this out the hard way. The only way to do multiple photos now is to do them 1 by 1 and select small.

makes sense i was having this problem the other day while trying to upload a couple at the same time and i just gave up. good to know thanks!

also on the big pictures if you hold down ctrl and scroll out on your mouse you can view the big pics pretty easy.

Let's test it. I have an Android running the free Tapatalk app. These are posted individually. And on my Tapatalk there is and option to post medium or small pics.

Just zoom out and you'll see the picture just fine.

Press and hold the Ctrl key. Press the - character in between the number zero and the equal sign at the top of your keyboard. You can also scroll up with your mouse wheel or trackpad while pressing down on the Ctrl key.

And old fix for crapatalk users with these ridiculously large pictures was to simply go back to their post, hit 'edit', and then hit 'save'. Not sure if this still works...

Even if someone posts a pic where you have to slide your page vertically and horizontally to see the pic, I don't get all pissy and hit the back arrow. Worse things in the world going down than this. I've really noticed the pissing and moaning has skyrocketed on this sight in the past year. Almost anything anybody posts will get jumped on by somebody.

Small & medium look exactly the same with tapatalk pro on my iPhone screen size wise visually, that is until you zoom in and you can see the pixilation difference.
