Want to post some pics, having problems

Got some pics of my shade tree/redneck head gasket work I want to share but I get a file to large message or something like that. Took some with iPhone, iPad.

Need some guidance.

Tapatallk for sure the easiest or: just use iCloud "share link" the problem with that is it only lasts a couple months.

You can make an ALBUM of photos with I iCloud and share the link to the album that's what I do for my photo corrections on xoutpost

You can also download an image resizer app to both your iPhone & iPad. For sites like this...I recommend an image with a resolution between 800x600 - 1100x800. If you look at the resolution you have set on your devices for image size...its' probably like 2500x3000 or higher...which is way to large for the usually smaller devices the forum members are using....plus it takes up a lot of bandwidth...thus the rejection of images with large resolution.

Images that size are too big and you usually have to scroll left/right and up/down just to see what's in the pic.

Image resizing apps are plentiful in the Store (for free).

Best is to host the images in this forum for future preservation of images.

You can also transfer images to a laptop and use Windows Paint program to resize it.
