You have got me back on my hobby horse again, this is one of the best metal detecting sites out there.
I believe the problem is that it is so difficult to upload photos from a phone or a pad, if you are using a laptop it is fairly simple to manipulate the photo to the correct definition/size and convert to another format, not so with the phone 📱 unless you use apps to shrink and then another to convert, I have posted photos in the past with great difficulty and now canít be asked.
I am not a negative person, but ask what is the problem, other very similar sites do not have this problem. Is it a cost implication?
I know I could use my laptop, from the phone i could post immediately and should we not move with the time.

I used to post from my laptop using Ďpaintí to re-size pics downloaded from camera.
Then it all changed, I bought an iPad and stopped using the camera. Phos from iPad far superior but couldnít post direct to Forum. Wrong file type !
initialy got around that problem by sending pics from my iPad by email to myself. Picked up on laptop, used Ďpaintí to down-size then post to Forum.
Worked OK for some time but then things changed again. Now the file type doesnít change when transferred and Iíve found Ďpaintí no longer works with windows 10..
I just gave up in the end. All too confusing for me.

Thanks Val for confirming the nightmare, there will be many more out there that have probably had to jump though hoops to post a photo.
With all the skills members have on this site, I am sure someone can come up with a SIMPLE solution.

Hi Geoff
I imagine I have a much earlier version of paint. Iíve got an app on the iPad now for re-sizing and itís very easy to use. Itís called ĎImage Sizeí but the biggest problem is the sort of file. I tried to down load one and kept getting the message, wrong file  and a list of which files I could use.
I havenít the faintest idea what sort of file you get on the iPad. If I attach it to an email it works perfectly. The laptop is jpeg and tells me the transferred pic is jpeg but the Forum still doesnít recognise it.
Think the old camera might have to come out of mothballs. Iíve only just got back to Detecting with a new Equinox and still on short outings after the broken leg so not too bothered at mo. Need to find something worth showing.

Greg Iíve wondered the same. What changed and can it be changed back. I struggle to keep up with all this techno stuff and Iím sure Iím not on my own.
