OK thats definately IT !   Ive spent nearly an hour transferring, typing, re-sizing and generally faffing. Press the butto, and guess what ?  once again, wrong file type. OK post the typed bit, its gone. AHHHHHHHHH

Why Bother. And I'm sure that's why the site is dying.

Val, I have been to my big cupboard and pulled out my hobbyhorse again. As you well know this is one of my favourite subjects, I am lucky enough to have 3 devices to try and post photos, my iPhone, my iPad and my hp windows 10 laptop.
Donít get me wrong I have posted photos in the past, using apps to shrink, change format and also e-mailed to my other devices to reduce size, I keep trying.
I wanted to post a nice Edward I penny last week, but like you had to give up in the end.
I am a member of 3 other web based clubs (not Facebook) and cannot remember having a failure on any of them.
I think this is one of the best sites for information, and it sad it is in decline.
Members have explained in the past, as to how they do it but the fraffing about has beaten me. Why should I bother.

Hi Greg. I have the same as you and Iím sure the problem is with the site server. Itís not iOS compatible. That means, even when you transfer pics from iPad to laptop, it just wonít work. Transferring doesnít change the original format.
Now if, like me you put your pics on the iPad, your on a looser with DW. One thing I havenít tried yet is taking pics with my Huawei phone and transferring them direct to the windows laptop.
I started taking pics of finds with the iPad because the camera is so good and is excellent with close ups. I found out about none compatibility when I had the Huawei, it doesnít like Apple. Also, like you I post on another forum, strait from the iPad, no trouble.
I will have to try phone to laptop when Iím in the mood, which Iím not at the mo. All too much like hard work
From the above ramblings you can see, itís no good talking about or describing something without a pic. I can see, n my minds eye, what Iím on about but others canít.
Ok ramble over. Time for a snooze, the rains arrived.

There is no problem adding photos if the file type and size are ok.

This is a jpg, 243 kb size.

This one was taken a couple of days ago on my iphone. No problem posting it. Just resized in a straightforward image program.

From one of my other hobbies, cacti growing.

Hi Peter, I have no idea but assume they are whatever iPad uses. iOS  seems to be what the up-dates tell us.
How do you find out, any idea ?

All the years Iíve been a member I-never had a problem with pics. Then all of a sudden last year they started being rejected. As you probably do, you write out your script first then add pics.
Fatal error !, you get a message saying Ďwrong file typeí then a list of which ones it will accept. Yesterday, and it was fairly long, so I think. Ok just use the script and tell readers to use imagination. Tried Ďbackí to return to script and itís gone. How annoying is that.
Especially as Iíd transferred the pics via email to myself, down loaded them into photos on my windows laptop, re-sited & down-sized pixels and then lost the lot.
As said to Greg, have new Huawei phone and havenít tried that approach yet. Another mountain for me.

Just read an article about iPad pics. They use PNG which appantly are much bigger files.
Suggested action is, email to your laptop and use an AP to change file from PNG  to JPG.
Great another faff around. Now how do I do that ?  Tongue

Test   Not really sure how that worked but it has. Found instructions on how to change file type in PAINT on laptop.
So here goes, send yourself an email with pic attached.  Save to pictures.  Find Pic and open in PAINT. Click on FILE [top left] Go to Save. Select Save as.  Choose JPEG.

This produces another copy of pic. If your hover curser over each you can see which one is JPEG. Select the JPG one to attach to post.

In case Ive got that wrong I'm going to do it again. Stand by  Cheesy

TEST 2 - That was a bit shakey but I think I got there. Have made a correction  in above post. Its def the JPG pic you want.
Hope this helps - phew, I'm too old for this sort of thing  Grin

You've never said about that - at least not that I can remember Smiley - are you a member of the Cardiff Cactus Soc then? I turned up a couple of times, but whilst I grow a lot of cactus and succulents, there's a limit to the number of societies I can be in Smiley Must admit (and I know they aren't cactus) I seem to have a lot of different Euphorbia Smiley
