How to post an image

Postby dmjames » May 23rd, 2018, 5:52 pm

Hi All,

I'd like to know how to post an image. I generally take photos with my IPhone. I did my first post today and when I tried to upload an image as a file, the system said the file size was too large.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello David,

AusBonsai has a limit of 1MB per image, so we all must reduce our image's size before attaching to a thread.
A good all round file size for images is around 500KB.
A simple free app for resizing images is 'Image Resizer'. Once loaded onto your phone / computer it's as simple as right clicking on the image, select Image Resizer, then select a size around 800px x 600px.

Good luck and looking forward to seeing your Eucalyptus saligna.

Thanks for the tip, is there an app version of this forum. I’m an IPhone user.

Hello Dave,

A lot of people use 'Tappa Talk' (I think that's what it's called).
Sorry i know nothing about it.

Just a tip - the Test Forum where we are currently posting in does not display / register onto the main index page at the top of the page, so very limited amount of people will ever see your questions here. The only reason i found it was because you mentioned you posted a question which wasn't displayed on the main index page so i searched and found it in the Test Forum.
