If you’re an iPhone guy…..here is a work around.I feel your pain also . I have tryed to get through the info to post a picture on here several times ...I finnaly just give up .
I just Express myself with words on here now . I would spend more time on here if I could post a picture that's for sure .
I'm just not a Computer savvy type guy !
I am not a phone geek, and I would never say an I Phone is "Better" I can't afford to buy a new $1000+ phone each year. A $400 droid every 4 to 5 years is bad enough. Once I get use to something and it's functions I would much prefer to just use it as long as possible. They already do way more than I wish they did.No Tapatalk here. Done got rid of it about a year ago. Yes! So you’re saying iPhones are better? I’m telling my friend. I’ve never posted pics from my laptop. Maybe I should try that sometime.

Off the lap top when I open a pictures at the top I can click "edit" then resize. I just did this one and sized it to "Document-Large" It is now sized to 1024 x 768 pixels or 223 KB. So that may give you some idea of how large a 2.6 MB photo actually is. View attachment 9477
Sounds to me like a very smart and pragmatic man.Can’t afford a $1k phone every year, but build awesome new rifles each year?
Just giving you shit Jeff! No malice intended here. Just poking a little fun on this fine Friday.
***Add to edit - I am just like you and keep my phones for a very long time. Getting a new phone each year or ever other year at the prices they cost is crazy to me. I don’t care to keep up with the “phone Jones’”.
It is my understanding that as the cell phone camera's progress into higher resolution the files sizes get larger. Hosting HUGE files eats up space and band width. This is why there is a file size limit. I think the new I phones have a photo resizer built in, but android not yet. However there are many available photo resizing apps out there for us android users. I post all my photos from a laptop so resizing is easy and quick. If I wanted to use my phone more I would down load a resize app.
If it is tap-a-talk that is giving you issues, please do not blame us. I have thought many times about getting rid of tap-a-talk all together. It is way more trouble that it is worth, and they have many issues that many blame us for. So try coming on here using Chrome, it works well for me.
Are some of you suggesting that you don't have this picture posting issue when on other sites? So these sites allow photos of 2 MB and larger? I find that hard to believe, if true, then I am missing something and need to research this.
It's all about priorities friends. LOL My daily driver is a 2002 Chevy 1/2 ton with 200K miles. One easy $5K payment 4 or 5 years ago and I think she has about 10 more years in her. ;-)
Same here,I figure I've spent around $35,000 total on guns and reloading equipment over the last 2 years(or since I joined this site)and my daily driver is a '92 Jeep Wrangler I've had for 22 years and still put at least 300+ miles on it per week(original motor and trans. finally crapped out at 287,000 miles 3 years ago so I threw in a remanufactured engine and trans. from Napa and it's still going strong at 344,000 miles now).As for a phone,I hate the damned things and don't want to be bothered but since my boss wants me to carry one for work he gave me one of his old iphones(a 6 or 7)that's been through about 4 different owners,the last being a commercial weed grower and I still get texts weekly from his his old contacts wanting to sell or buy weed or clones...my average daily usage is 2 minutes.It's all about priorities friends.

Guess I'm lucky or spoiled. My firm pays for my cell phone with a new one every 2-years. That's 4-figures every month for us but its the price of doing business in this century.It's all about priorities friends. LOL My daily driver is a 2002 Chevy 1/2 ton with 200K miles.

I agree with your comment on the adds. That could be a whole other thread.I was not telling a fib when I said Tap-a-talk was not worth the trouble. I have spent time and money on this end with it's issues over the years. Use of a browser seems simple to me. I do it all the time on my android. I would much prefer to see industry sponsor ads that support my passion than what Tap-a-talk was trying to force me to watch. But to each their own. We will support it until we no longer can. I made the decision to make LRO tap-a-talk compatible years ago. At the time it seemed like a wise decision. Today not so much.
Both of my phones give me the option on which size I can send. The Tap-a-Talk "VIP" option will let you attach actual size. I do not pay for that, so I only have "medium" and "small" option.Thanks, I just try to attach from my iPad or iPhone. I’ll have to try to resize somehow.
