I was hoping someone could help me with this. The only way I've been able to put up a pic is to email it to my tablet, download onto desktop, then upload. It takes forever and is too many steps.

I have a Samsung Note 3. Anyone know a better way?

Mary, how are you trying to do it directly that does not work? Even if you could not upload directly from your phone, you should be able to cut a step, either upload from the tablet or email direct to the desktop. But all you should have to do is upload directly from your phone. The steps should be the "Upload an Image" button under a thread text box or in the database, wherever you are uploading to (in some cases such as my tablet you have to hit that button twice, nothing happens with once). That should take you to your picture files where you select the image, then wait (it can take a little while on slow internet) and the picture should appear. In the database I think it appears right away, in a thread in the forums you'll just see the link surrounded by "lightbox" but the image will appear in the thread when you preview or post it.

This is a common dilemma Mary. I have some ideas, but first, a couple of questions.

Why the intermediate step of mailing to the tablet?

Is the tablet Windows or Mac?

By "desktop" do you mean a laptop, a desktop model computer, or the "desktop" (aka 'home screen' or 'startup screen') of one of these computer types.

If it's a desk-type computer, is it Windows or Mac.

Do you have any image editing software?

Also, are you able to set the resolution of your camera before you take the picture? A lower-resolution picture would email quicker. The iPhone offers several downsizing options when emailing large images, does the Samsung have anything like that?

When I clicked on upload image, it only searched my tablet that I'm on. A Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I wonder if I can bring up this site on my phone and do it that way? I'm gonna try that! Let ya know!

Edited this to say this is a pic from today. White Eyes Pink Dragon. I was too busy working on the sweet little baby pressure washer to put any pollen on the blooms.
