Adding photo?

Postby Tractor Rod » Tue Jul 20, 2021 8:59 pm

May I please ask how do you add a photo to a post? I tried using the attachments and it always says file too large?

You need to resize the photo so it will fit. I usually email the photo to myself . If this is done via smart phone you will be asked to resize before sending.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I have had good luck on my Samsung phone using the PHOTO & PICTURE RESIZER free App. On my laptop, it has a built in resizer. I pick the smallest size for both.

It's best to have the pictures you want to upload already reduced in size before trying to post them. They need to be no bigger than 500kb. There are photo resizing apps available; I use "Image Size" which works well. On a desktop computer, I'll use Paint. Click on the Resize button, switch to Pixels and set the Horizontal value to 1000. Save image either to replace your original or under a different name to save both. Can also select multiple photos, as Barnyard does, right click to attach them to an email to send, then when the pop-up screen asks how big, choose medium. Then copy and paste those newly sized pics back into your directory.

I'll describe the process using an iPhone, but it should (hopefully) be similar on an iPad or other phone:

  1. Open the page on the Forum where you will create the post.
  2. Write whatever description or text in the main "Topic Review" box.
  3. Next, go down below the text box and you'll see two tabs: "Options" and "Attachments"; select "Attachments".
  4. Click on the "Add Files" button and an iPhone menu (at least on my phone) comes up from the bottom of the screen with 3 options:
    1. "Take Photo or Video"
    2. "Photo Library"
    3. "Browse"
  5. Select, say, "Photo Library", since you should have already resized the image and it's on your iPad. Your iPad should direct you to your photo library where you can search and select the resized picture you want. Select one.
  6. Once the forum size requirements are met for that photo, an extended box will show up below the "Add Files" button. It will list your photo's file name, 2 buttons ("Place inline" and "Delete file"), and a "File comment:" box. If you type a brief description in the "File comment" box, it will show up in your post directly underneath your photo in italicized font. If you want a description or caption associated with the picture, then use this feature, otherwise, you can describe the photo in the main body of your post. If I recall, you may attach up to 6 photos in this manner, one at a time.
  7. Once you have attached all the photos, you have a choice to either place them in-line (intermittent among your text in the post) or just leave all the photos to come up at the end of your text. If you have multiple pictures to post, they will be lodged below the main screen in reverse order. For example, if you have 3 pictures and want them to show up in the order you uploaded them, the first pic will be at the very bottom of the list. So, you'd just select that one first ("Place inline" button), then the next one up and so on. Remember, if you choose to leave them at the bottom and not place them in-line, they will appear in reverse order of how they were uploaded.

Dennis has explained the process here: How to Upload Pictures to a Post

Hope this helps. Let us know if you want further explanation.
