Yep, if you're on an Android phone try going to Full Site, Reply, then click on the Image icon. Lemon Squezy. Ish.

I think to start with you will need to transfer to full site

Just resize them. Then they’ll be fine.

Use a phone app or a free photo editor to make the pictures smaller

cheers Sherlock, i'll get right onto that :sorted:

been reading threads about how it's totally inexplicable that the Galaxy S7 removed the ability to resize photos. not gonna bother with a new app etc for this - know how to do it easy enough on my computer, so i'll do it at home, as i said :)

Where are these buttons.?
if you're on the "standard" GPG (not the mobile version), then at the bottom of each thread (so under this post, now) is a box saying "Quick Reply". above where you type your text, there is a row of icons - e.g. the 3rd, 4th and 5th icons are the standard "B I U" (bold italic underline) icons.

the third icon from the right is the "Insert Image" button.

does that make sense? (please say yes :D )

yeah to be honest, the next step used to confuse me - but if you click "choose file" and find your picture, THEN click "upload file" (under "choose file"), that should work. unless your photo's too pissing big :rolleyes: :D

I have s7 and can't resize apparently.
nope - you can get apps for it if you want to do it all on your phone :shrug:

otherwise, i just put them on my googlie drive, downloaded them to my computer, resized them there and then uploaded them to here :cool:

Wanted to find a couple of photos that I posted on here years ago in the thread Shots of 1971 (which I posted in 2009) but they don't seem to be there anymore. When threads are archived, are the photos deleted?

Thanks for checking. Yes, that's where I looked, which is what gave rise to the question. Anyone able to confirm/deny? They were b/w photos I'd taken myself and I'm not sure where the originals are now!
Will know tomorrow. Standby.

They are not on the server that we've just migrated from unfortunately. However the thread was from over 10 years ago so they were probably lost in a previous server migration....

You'll have to find them again :(
