Get a notebook computer and it should work fine :). Seriously, make sure the files don't have any periods or hyphens in them and make sure they aren't bigger than about 500k so they can resize adequately. I have heard some folks have issues with uploading from phones etc...but don't know the solution..Personally, I don't see how anyone does all of that stuff on a phone....it's crazy man!! (and my wife and daughter use their phones for everything too)

The attachment size may be the hangup with doing it from a phone, as many will take pics larger than that these days. If you don't have a way to re-size the image on your phone, you may be out of luck.

And I'm right there with you, Leon. I can barely stand to text on my phone, let alone post and upload photos :D

Our s/w resizes .jpg's down to about 75k automatically but if they are too, too big (+/-1mb) they won't work.....and yes, I think many phone pics are huge like that..

The pics are 640x480, 155kb. But my phone and my wifes do not work. They did before. When I go to load it and push the button both phones just light up orange and won't go to my pics.

I post pics with an iPad and never have any issues. But it seems like it only allows me to attach 1 pic per post. Is that right or do I need to do something else?

You are allowed at least 5 pics per post when using the boards hosting software (uploading pics) for doing it....I don't know anything about uploading from other devices other than a notebook or pc..sorry..

Yep, I have the same issue with posting pics using an iPad...I can only post one pic per post. On the bright side, an iPad takes outstanding pics. :)

Ok good, I'm not the only one. And yes, the photos are very nice looking and easy to upload.
