It is Alan, and we all like to :poke: each other a little

I’ve been struggling with the Forum for months, I’ve still not been able to post a photo, I’m taking my iPad to CC and consulting the LEC elite on how to condense my photos so they upload

For an avatar

open you pic in paint........
reduce the size (Maximum dimensions; width: 150 pixels, height: 150 pixels, file size: 48.83 KiB.)
upload

:-D

to upload.....go to
User control panel
select 'profile' from the top bar
the select 'edit avatar' from the side bar (left)
then click 'choose file' in the middle of the page
select the file you've just shrunk

:-D

for general pics in posts.....
select upload attachment (on the left just under the line where you see......'save draft' preview ' submit')
there is a limit on the pics size but I cant remember what it is.....the forum will tell you if it is too big........
I think it also tells you what size it needs to be......
if it needs reducing then if youre on a PC select resize in paint..........

:-D
I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me, Superman.

Mark, on the point of photos and the iPad, what you need is a (free) app called ImageSize. That will allow you to resize an image as required - the forum has a limit of 1024 x 768 pixels. Resize the image, and then use the ‘upload attachment’ dialogue on a forum post (below the text box) and insert your image.

Bear in mind that the iPad cuts off the right hand side of uploaded images. That’s an iPad ‘feature’, one of many.
