Picture help
« on: November 27, 2019, 12:05:20 PM »
Ok, been gone ten years or so.  We used to always use Photobucket here for pics in the past but I saw the video about adding pics and it looks like the is no longer the case.  I've tried three times now to post pics here using the attachments link and it never works. In fact, it blanks the post and kicks me back to an empty form.

I suspect I need to downsize my pictures but have no idea how to do so.  Don't know if I need to do it in my photo album or if I don't it to the attachment somehow after is "added".  Not even sure that's the problem.  Seems to load really slow to about 1/4 the progress line showing across screen then kicks it out and blanks screen. My phone is an Android if that helps but I just need some specific instructions please.

Thanks
Dave


I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.

The biggest reason for pictures not posting is the picture file is very large and times out when loading to TG.

Cell phones take really humongous size pictures, and thus timeout when uploading.

Go into the phones camera setting and choose the smallest size picture format it has listed.

Also in the link below, made up by Rob, there are a couple sections about posting pictures.

So... I see in my phone settings where I can reduce the size of the pictures BEFORE I take them but I can't see a way to reduce the size of one I already took.  I tried emailing one to myself thinking there might be an option pop up to reduce size but nothing...

If you send them to a photo hosting site (such as Flickr) you can size them there.

On your pc there should be an MSpaint app, it's a windows program.

You can edit pictures with it.

There are other picture edit programs out there.

Don't even use a PC any more, just my phone.
