        It works better for me by clicking "post reply", type in your comment, then click on the "clipboard" in the upper right, upload your pic, then click on the size you want. This puts the fullsize pic in the post. You can see the difference in my two above posts.

          I think I got it now. Still trying to get the pics all the same size though as this one came out smaller. Thank you for making it easier to post pics.

            I can't find the location of the photo album to create one. Maybe it's not so "mobile optimized"? Following your directions of the "media" tab next to the "about" is not working. Can't find it. Help me if you can. Thanks.

                Keeps telling me my pictures are too big. I don't know how to make them smaller. Used to work fine on the old system using the app...most of the time.

                  If you are uploading a jpg attachment, the max. file-size is 512000 bytes. The maximum width and height (in pixels) is 730. If your file exceeds these limits, you will need to resize the image. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but we thank you for your patience. Thank you.

                    I've been trying to post pictures all morning. Keep getting error messages..."server abort"..."empty response"...used IE and chrome....what gives? I've resized to around 200 pixels in height and around 150 in width.

                              File exceeds PHP's file-size limit of 2.00 MB. This is what I get.
                              I have 10,000 pictures on my computer (yes some welding related) and I can't post them. Its such a pain to resize them just for this forum. Because now I have the orig pic and the resized one. And all of the resizing sites want to download crap into my computer just to use them. Just my thoughts...Bob
