    Steven / Phil:

    What size images? And, were they .jpg's?

    I tested with a 230k image and it posted... and it converted it to about 30k.

    Tapatalk in my iPhone is working well for me. Very simple to post pics straight from the phone. The 3rd party hosting must all be done by magic. Here's my newly tidied workbench on board
    Works great for iPhone and iPad.

    BTW--great shot!

    That's a .png, started as an 1167 x 733, 1.5mb image, and posting converted it 800 x 500, 82k.

    Doesn't work for me. I tried uploading from my desktop and got a message that the file exceeded the limit. I thought Scot just said that the forum would resize the image?

    Robert:
    What size/type image? Want to send it to me? I'd be interested in testing it.

    Great, Scot - thanks! So if I post a big file stored on my hard drive, the WBF will automatically reduce the file size to something suitable?

    It's great that photo posting has been simplified, but I don't understand why it is necessary to log in to see the images. I have no doubt there are many casual and even regular visitors to this forum who won't want to go to the trouble of registering just to see a photograph.

    For some unfathomable reason, the photos that I've posted here (hosted on photobucket) are still visible. Perhaps I'm blessed. More likely it's because I have so few photos on photobucket that they don't care. Nevertheless this new manner of posting photos seems a lot more convenient so I am joining the chorus in giving thanks to the WoodenBoat folks, in particular to Scot!

    Presumably it prevents hotlinking from here to elsewhere, so that the WBF doesn't become an all-purpose free photoserver and go bust like other free photo services.

    I used this new photo posting method and I think I'm doing right. But how do you rotate images Scot?
    thanks for making the process a lot easier too. I don't understand it but that's pretty normal

    The "quick" way to have vertical images show correctly is to crop to horizontal (or make the 'canvas' horizontal).

    At this point the software won't keep the orientation... instead the longest side will be the width.

    POSTING PICTURES


    ...Click the image icon when you are in the posting section
    ...Select From My Computer unless linking from a URL
    ...Click Select Files (you need to know where you stashed them)
    ...Click Upload Files. You'll then see a thumbnail of the image
    ...Click Post Quick Reply and it will post in a bigger size.

    For a "how-to post images" series of screenshots, click Posting Images.

    REMEMBER: if you post inappropriate images, you lose your posting privileges.

    Scot,

    thanks so much for working something out! I really appreciate it, having just restored some fairly big threads after losing all my photos to Photobucket.
