I'm having a lot of trouble loading pictures into my posts.
I haven't done it for a while, probably a couple of years back since I put any images on the site. That was back when I was first uploading them to 'photobucket' and then highlighting the url thing and chosing them that way.
Now I see the 'VB
Image Host' that seems to do the same thing. But even that is a PITA to use.
Here's what I've done to try and get pictures fron my Iphone to a post.
1. Take photo.
2. Email photo to myself and chose 'low res' to keep the kb below 1024.
3. Go to computer.Copy photo from email and paste to desktop.
4. Open KLR forum.
5. Open 'VB
6. Select 'upload image'
7. Go to 'choose file'
8. Go to desktop on the dropdown menu and choose the picture.
9. Select 'open'.
10. Select 'host it'.
11. Check 'my images' to see if it was successfully uploaded.
Process seems to work but sometimes even 500kb files are rejected as being too big and half my images somehow get rotated through 90 degrees in the selection process and there is no way of editing them once they're in the My Images file.
All very frustrating!
I post stuff on the ADV forum (checkmate3) and it's so much easier to post pictures and even Youtube video there that I hardly think about it. Just drag pictures straight from the desktop into the text, none of this hosting rubbish. Right click on video in Youtube, select copy address and paste into a post and 'bingo' the video is embedded.
Am I doing something wrong or is this forum just using different/older technology?
