How do I upload photos from phone

Post by Taylor Steiner »

Just wondering if anybody knows if I'm doing something wrong with my uploading of photos? The site says my file size is too big. Maybe too many pixels? We found an Ent wife I wanna post.

Probably a file size restriction: I think the max is 100-200K, and your native phone format is much larger. Do you have a desktop or something with a paint program you can resize images in?

Posting images from mobile devices is always hard, from my experience if the file size is less than 100Kb it will definitely work, if it is just a bit more it can sometimes work (no idea why? :lol:)

If you still have a problem posting the pics, pm me. I'll send you my email, you can email me the pic and I'll see if I can resize and either post it for you or send you back the resized pic.

Taylor, if you have an iPhone, I can help, if not, maybe some ideas for your phone?

Below are some pictures I attached in this way.

With an iPhone:
  • go to photos
  • select the images you wish to share
  • click the share button select email
  • email photos to yourself
  • hit send, it will prompt you for size (this is tricky, but small will almost always work)
  • you have sent the photos, go to your email, don’t worry about waiting for it to come in, go into your sent mail folder, and open the sent mail.
  • save the files back to photos.
  • now come here in your browser and attach as normal

I took my picture and then went to resize.net and fiddled with the resolution until it was small enough.

Your image size limits are:

Maximum dimensions; width: 80 pixels, height: 80 pixels, file size: 6.00 KiB
