Hence why we need an automatic picture resizer built into the uploader. There is no function to do this via a mobile phone, and I do not sit at a desktop anymore.[/quote]

it will resize the pictures but is a file size limit as well so if you try post over that limit it wont let you (work in progress as they say)

Does there need to be a file size limit, at the upload stage? Since the pics will be resized anyhow, surely it should not matter what size they are initially? Hopefully that’s a simple check box to tick in the forum settings somewhere?

it does matter if you upload a 10MB picture then that will be stored on the server, when displaying on page it is resized down but the original server file is still 10MB.
I wish there was a simple tick box but there is not. work in progress as they say but now at least Ipad,Iphone,Tablet, Kindle any any other none desktop device freindly.
got to check a Android device but that should not cause a problem as Apple devices the pain in the you know what.

ok. Why is the full size version getting stored, if only the reduced sized version will be viewed? That kind of defeats the point of a resizing tool, surely?
As mentioned, since I think most people upload pics via mobile devices now, with no way to resize pics before uploading, and phone pic file sizes ever increasing with the increasing MP of the the cameras. It’s only going to get worse if a worse solution is not found.

These Apple products....! :lol:

With Android pic resolution can be changed from the camera screen, options -> settings -> pic resolution, just change to eg 3M and the size will be fine, default 13M+ is mainly for PC/bigger screens. I suspect similar thing is surely possible from an Evil Apple Corp? :lol:
Also, pics on Android that automatically go to Google Photos, are resized/compressed and can be picked up from there to upload here if needed.

Alternatively this looks promising, although these can be often a pain to setup.

I think that's cropping, Don? (also a sort of "resizing" I suppose!)

Good practice to crop though, crop out what you can before uploading, no point in showing your underwear hanging on the line next to your XJ40, right? :)
