Please find an app/software that all monkeys can use with android or Apple to post pics.

It is such a hassle to post pics. And you know we all love the pics.

This week, Ronnie’s were huge for no apparent reason; and subsequently deleted

And why can’t we post more than 4 in one post?

Please, monkeys, reply agree and maybe we can get something/someone to help us with posting pics

If y’all don’t reply, i’m going to look like an a$$

i've been looking but haven't found a way to post directly from my phone. the easiest for me is to post on FB. if i don't want anyone on FB to see them i just set the privacy to only me. then i can copy the location to post here. Of course i always have access to my laptop which makes it easy.

Agree. I don't bother to post pics because it's a hassle. Making it easy to post pics will make the site more informative and enjoyable. Thanks for the consideration.

I find it very easy to downsize my photos in PhotoScape, my free photo editor then upload my photos to my free Flickr account, then copy the photo info and post here in the Swamp. Fast and easy. I find 640 pixels on the long dimension is about the max size that I care to post. But remember I am using a real computer, not a phone. I use my phone for phone calls and looking at things, or at the most slowly tapping out a response, but certainly not as a photo tool.

I wish I could post pics again!!
Even with posting them first on FB, it's hard for me to figure it out.

I never post pictures anymore because it's such a hassle. Would love a new option!

I agree it is very hard to post pics. I don’t have a computer, only ipad and iphone. So no mouse as well. That all makes that I refrain from posting pics here. Only reading the directions how to do it, gives me headache, let alone actually doing it. But there might not be a solution to it.

Never posted a picture...seemed too daunting.
But I might try Cap'n Tom's method...once I get the software/apps mentioned.

I screwed up my Flicker password a few years ago and haven't been able to get back in since...keep going in circles. I post from FB, but my pics are also very big.

I should go through the photos I took on the island with my phone now that I'm home and see about sending them to my computer and posting here through picture trail anything that hasn't already been posted. Too difficult to post here from my phone. I don't even try.

The last time I posted any pics was when photobucket was a free service. I deleted my account with them when they started charging crazy fees for use of the service.

Ditto Judi. I would love to post photos but I have spent hours on two sites trying to post photos to no avail. I am not on facebook and never will be so those who say that is easy it will not be easy for non-facebook users. There are people not on facebook.
This has got to change, please make it easier for us simple people.
