I don't have a computer I know that would make it a lot easier but I want to upload pictures of my car for my profile picture an just some in general. I was wonder if any of you would know the easiest way to do that on a iPhone. When I try to do it it says the files to big. Any help

I have the same issue and when I reduce the size the quality gets bad

Get yourself a free photo hosting account at photobucket.com and host the photos there. That site will resize your photos automatically and provide you with a link for each photo. Then you can link the photos here.

:yeah: And there's an app for that. Photobucket has an app that allows you to upload/download and what not. It will also provide you with the needed links to post here.

The link that you want to use here is...

The above link will look like the below when all put together neatly. Which it will be done by the app...

If you can't figure it out, email them to me, and I will put them in your post.

i use imageshack.us ... similar in function to photobucket but simpler in form

i have found that when you link in images either manually (as shown in post #4) or with the button on the text editor toolbar that the forum software prompts your browser to automatically shrink the image down to fit so it doesn't break any formatting of the site

if found that the only time the forum will complain that the image is too big is if you are requesting the forum to hold a local copy (the server doesn't want to get overloaded with multi-meg images)

what's nice about this way is that the image displays nicely but if you right click and save it (or just go to view it alone) you get the original full size version
