Can't post pictures
« on: January 11, 2019, 01:40:18 PM »
I had started some topics here before but over time I have been frustrated by the fact that I can't post pictures on this site like I used to. So I recently got a new Apple iPhone and thought now that the pictures I take would now upload but still no joy. What I'm I doing wrong around here

pic test directly from my old pos iPhone 5 didn't work, I got a message saying file was too big or took too long to upload, contact the site admin...

So...I emailed myself that same pic, sending it resized to 296kb, then re-saved it for my email to my phone and I'll try to post it here now...

so...from my end here it looks like pic sizing has a lot to do with it.

the pic from the acer laptop is 450kb and it posted fine. i dont know the size of the original pic from my iphone 5 because i cant seem to find that info, but i was unable to post it in its original size. however, after i emailed it to myself from my phone, resizing it to 296kb in that email, and then re-saving it back to my iphone as the new 296kb size, i was able to post it from my phone. zoiks!

for what its worth, i have heard from others that posting pics directly to the asf is troublesome, especially from iphones.

my $.02...i always prefer to host my vw pics on thesamba.com and then i can post them from there to any site i like. its a little extra work, but it's well worth it imho because then we're not dealing with dead pic links (like from photobucket, flickr, here or other hosting sites). i've been doing it that way for many years and i've never had a problem with hosting or posting pics!

geoff..do you get an error message when you try to post pics? maybe you need a pic resizing app for your new phone? maybe the admins can offer more info?

Thanks Silas, I am getting the same error message you mentioned in your second post saying file is too big or took to long to upload. I will try the posting on samba first and see if that works. Such a pain.

I’ve also experienced a lot of frustration with trying to post pics. Too many steps required. This site uses the same format as the old Vancouver Kayak Club site and posting pics was soooo much easier!
Gave up. Easier to just text or email pics to potential buyers.

It really comes down to the fact that this is a free site for everyone except for the odd person who chips money in.

You can use image links to post photos or shrink your pictures to meet the size requirements.
