Hi, you first need to create a photo album, click on the 'My Photos' link in your account area top left, then click 'Create a Photo Album'. Once you have created the album, you can upload jpg format images to it.

To put a picture in your post, as opposed to an album, you can post it to a hosting site such as Photobucket, Flickr, or Dropbox. You can then include a link to it in your post by clicking the "Image" button in the reply editor.

Is there some trick I'm unaware of in getting the forum to correctly re-size a photo inserted using 'Image' button? I have mine hosted on PhotoBucket, and it seems no matter what setting I choose (in terms of locking the aspect ratio or resizing) I end up with an elongated picture. I then have to manually drag the box to approximate the correct ratio.

Yes Chris,

In the insert dialogue set the width to (typically) 300. The aspect ratio should be locked by default, you may be unlocking it!

Hi Chris,
I normally resize pictures to 640 x 480 resolution before uploading them to an album on this forum. There is no reason why you should not upload a low (640 x 480) resoulution version of your pictures to PhotoBucket as well as the high resolution version. I use image resizer for windows (Free) It will resize groups of pictures so it saves time.

Fred - that's really strange! ( but I do note that you are in Australia.........wink) Try posting one that is upside down and see how that appears maybe?

I've had some upside down issues when posting from my iPad. Images look ok, but when posted the appear the wrong way up. I Flip and save them on the iPad it makes no difference. The orientation of the iPad seems to make a difference when taking the original photo.

Its quite possible the image you are turning up the right way is only being displayed correctly on your screen and the uploaded version is the original which may still be inverted.

Regarding sizing from photobucket once you have pasted the link into the url box tab twice which will bring you down to teh width box and enter 450, the height should automatically change then OK. I have all my PB images at 700 wide which suits most other forums so just do the above when I'm using an image on here

The problem with the upside down photographs has been solved. I used the "old" computer as the mini I pad was the cause of the problem. I now have photographs that can be seen up the correct way at last! Thanks for the help.

I created my album successfully on my PC.

How do I add photographs to it from my iPad?

When I go to the add photographs bit the "choose file" button is "greyed out"

What am I doing wrong?

I've given up before I start trying to post from ipad. It seems the pads preffered orientation is the one which is awkward to use if you're not standing on your head. Might give it another go when the mood takes me. It won't beat me.

If you are taking the photos with the ipad why not turn it upside down before taking the picture. That'll teach

Or you could stand on your head while taking the picture (at least you only have to do it once that way - not every time you look at the picture).

Which iOS version are you using ?

The "choose file" option certainly doesn't work with iOS 5



P.S. ... For rotating photos [and other simple editing] I had intended to recommend an App called PhotoForge2, but this seems to have disappeared from the AppStore

Edit: Yahoo! bought it and killed it ... see here

Some operating sytems don't actually rotate the file, they just store a note to display it rotated.

To rotate for real use some form of full function editor.
