I have to say, of all the forums I visit this one is the hardest to post pics to. I probably skip over 75% of the things I'd want to post including pics because of this

Easy for me and I'm no computer wiz.
I keep pics on my laptop and resize a copy for posting. Go Advanced and add an attachment.
Don't use my phone for it so no help there.

Ok, so I use One Drive.

Open One Drive.
Click on the photo.
Click the top ribbon "Embed"
on the pop up, change size to "large"
Copy the url provided.

Come here, and in the New thread page, quick reply page, or go advanced page, click the square icon that has the picture of a mountain and a yellow background. Paste your URL in that pop up.

Add a few <return> key clicks and then click preview post. You should see the image. And you can add text before and after it.

Easy as pulling the trigger! Right - then the work starts - most likely it will be upside down, sideways or not sized right. I quit trying to post pics from iPhone/iPad directly because of this. Yíall are missing out on some great pics from me. Should be a drag and drop for us dummies

Thanks fellas, I might get back to making some knives, but not sure if I could do that and sell on here or post pictures.

Anyway I appreciate all of you who purchased one from me. If you did pictures would be nice.

I got burnt out making them but miss the hobby.

Thanks

I'm typically pretty good with tech, but even after i resize images to meet the requirements my attachments always fail on this site. I prefer attaching the image to posts instead of using imgur

If you want to make sure your pics are not to large, make them no more than 800x600 pixels. Be sure they are within those parameters on both the front end, and back end. And you will have no problems posting them. In other words ie: 450x600, 800x230, 170x343, ext. If they are over 800 on the front end, or over 600 on the back end, then they might post sideways from a desk top. For cell users, TapaTalk Pro has some capabilities to resize. But not always. As does this sight's software if it's real close to those maximum dimensions. It might get truncated a little but not much. Otherwise, get a pillow so you can lay your head down while viewing threads.


I use Windows desk top "Paint" for resizing. And photoshopping in or out of the pics.


TapaTalk Pro does the resizing for me on my cell.

^ Yes, that's how I post pics. In Google photos you create the link for the photo, but you then have to convert that link so that the photo will show up in the post. Otherwise, it just shows up as a link that you have to click on.

There are multiple sites that will convert the link, just do a search...

On an iphone 10:
Take a picture. Screen shot the picture. Resize the screen shot to 9:16 for keeping the viewing size between the lines. Square is on the cusp or slightly over the lines. Load.

I did this for several years when first on TBH...then it got to where I didnt need to do this hokey pokey for about a year or so...now its back to the hokey pokey.

I refuse to use a third party app and Ive never TBHed from a PC.
