I assume there is a limit on how many pics can be added on one go?
I tried to add 7-10 I think, and it failed.
Up to 6 in one go seems to work?

Try reducing the size of your pics - 2.5 MB is way too big, just wastes server resources as it will be reduced automatically anyway ..however, the whole shebang 2.5 MB will be stored, adding to server bloat.

Any normal pic should be ok for viewing at ~300k (1/3 MB) or less.

Phone pix are way too big as-is, edit them before posting.

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.

First picture I have added here since 2008 (you didn't have to host photos elsewhere when the forum first started).

I posted that because I think the forum is resizing pictures - this one is much reduced in size from the one I uploaded. Maybe large photos are too big for it to digest?

Posting at the same time - thanks for that! I wonder who will be the first one to spot the missing bit...

the forum does resize pictures not for any reason other than storage space and file size, still tweaking a little to get it just right.
