    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?

    Yes, I tried to post a jpeg of 168 kb and was told I exceeded my quota by 24 kb.

    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!

    My first photo under this new system:

    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.
