    I'm not real smart on "smart phones", cause I don't have one. I've not had any issues uploading pics with my desktop. If you are using a smart phone, perhaps there may be an app issue. I'm not dodging, I just don't know. Chris will see this... hopefully he will have a suggestion... :usa:

    No phone, problem is from my desktop. This is the only board I have trouble uploading pics to.

    I'm not smart enough to help you. I'm sure Chris will look into it. :usa:

    I always use this TinyPicks link to up-load my pictures.

    After up-loading your pictures they give you a IMG code that you click on & paste along with your message here on the forum.
    It works for me.

    Every time I have gotten an error trying to upload a picture I have found that reducing the file size cures it.

    For my normal pictures on my computer, I don't compress the .jpg's or if I do I don't go below 95%. To upload here I have found that compressing to 45% always gets the file small enough to upload without error.

    I will make sure increase the size and report back.

    What error code are you getting? Can you copy and paste it or even take a screen shot? I need to know what you are doing to be able to repeat it, and ultimately fix it.
