    And now I am having trouble posting pics from my phone. Took four to post, 2 won't work. One comes up with a 'security warning' and the other one is too large. Can someone please have a go from thier phone?
    Cheers
    Jim

    That one didn't copy in the original size, Jim. I'll try another one.

    Does this relate to your fishing room?

    The 2nd image is 1.83MB. It may be a problem with your phone.

    Did you resize it to get it on?
    Two out of four were going to work for me.
    Just tried again. 7.3 MB too large.
    8.75MB too large.
    20200425_123228.jpg
    7.87MB worked.

    Will try my work phone later but if it is my phone then I am stuffed!

    Jim, that 1st image I posted was a resized photo, so it copied as correct size. I thought it was a larger image than it actually is.
    I'm still struggling to get my head around the process of editing photos on a smartphone and it's more blunder than good management most of the time.

    Well...with some assistance from my assistant...I managed to download this pic. 2 Jackalls I purchased yesterday for $20 each....that was 20% off.

    I downloaded a pic resizing app to do this. I will post some details tomorrow.
    Cheers

    I noticed that when I click on the resized image above and the pic enlarges, it appears to have been 'cropped'. Yet it appears in full size as is. I will investigate further!

    Now to have a go posting on another phone.

    Not bad! But not good for me if it indicates the issue is with my phone!

    I have to resize all images from my main camera (18mpics) and use 'paint' to do it. Easy as pie but know nothing of mobiles.

    More attempts from my phone failed dismally! Now I take a pic with the intentions of starting a thread...if the pic downloads...the thread gets started. If it doesn't download, no thread. I was enjoying the ease of posting pics from my phone. No idea what happened with my phone to change things.
    Cheers

    Has your phone had a recent software update that may have changed settings?

    Not sure as I am mobile illiterate. But updates frequently become avaiable and sometimes they run. Certainly is a possibility.

    One option I may have is reducing picture quality which may reduce file size. I wonder if I may have changed settings by accident. I will look a bit further into the image resizing app that I have.

    Otherwise it is take pics with camera and download when I am at my sister's place. Something I am not keen on.
    Cheers

    My phone may be the cause of all problems. Some pics on my phone download as they are and some don't. I wondered if using the zoom changed things (file size) but it didn't.

    As it is, if I can get a pic up with the app and it shows ok, that is fine. I will play around with the app sometime as I have the time.
