When you send a pic from an iPhone you are asked it it's to be small, med, large or full size.
Same with Android, except my phone has stopped asking me what size to send.  :S  If I am going to upload to the forum, I edit in Lunapic and use the Imgur link to post.

I have terrible trouble with pics but I set to this morning after Imi's enlightening post for simple people and used your Lunapic tute @UttaRetch. Worked a treat once I figured out what I was doing. Thanks for that.

@Efemera @Lowena  The img tags put the picture into the post, they don't give you a link to follow.

The image is elsewhere on the internet, but it's as though we have a window to it directly from the post.

This is an image that is elsewhere on the internet:



The image is at https://mekongquilts.com/images/2019/12/QFISHPA2x1012BU.png  and I got the image into this post by putting the img tags around that address.

I get that.. I click on the top left icon under the B...it then asks for a location and to insert it....
How do I get pictures from my iPad?
Just re-read your post @Acorn ... my photos are only on my iPad, I don’t use Google or any other photo storage...is there a solution?

You can use Lunapic, either to edit your pictures, save them to your ipad and upload them as attachments in the usual way, or to follow UttaRetch's (very simple) tutorial and use the imgur code with the img tags.

That's assuming there isn't a facility on your ipad to take smaller pictures - I've never used one so I can't advise there.

Pictures I plan to post here I first upload to Flickr. It gives me a URL to post here, which I can copy and paste without messing with any of the buttons and options on this site. It gives me a dozen options for which size I want the picture to appear here, and the Medium size seems good on these pages. Big enough to see easily, but not overwhelming the post. The image is clickable it you want to make it bigger to look at it. This is my last BOM, and the picture, according to Flickr, is "medium- 500 x 281" which I assume is pixel count, but it doesn't specify.

That's ideal @WendyW!   :D

And yes, that is 500 by 281 pixels.

If you use Imgur, there is a secret trick for making the image appear a good size in your post. When you paste the link (image address) you have copied from imgur (e.g. https://i.imgur.com/6iqknPe.jpg) after clicking the 'image' button, you just add an extra lowercase letter L before the .jpg (i.e. https://i.imgur.com/6iqknPel.jpg)

You can see the difference here:
Standard link (way too big and annoying):


With the sneaky extra lowercase letter L:


No need for any extra editing.

@Efemera  That image is 2063 pixels wide and 3029 pixels high and takes up 1,951KB.

If I edit it to 650 x 954 pixels it takes up 242KB - an eighth of the space.

This is what the smaller image looks like as an attachment in a post:

I have a free blog with blogspot. I write posts on there and upload the pictures to blogspot.

http://ruthieksews1.blogspot.com/

I then link the pictures from the blog into my posts here on TSP (mostly).
I do occasionally attach but I'll try not to do that anymore.
