Help with posting pics

Hi, apologies if this is a redundant thread but Iíve been searching the forums with no luck.

Iím just trying to figure out how to post a picture in a thread. Iím using an iPhone and not a desktop, maybe thatís the problem? When I click the pic icon above the text box Iím taken to a blank screen. It seems maybe I need to have the picture on a host site, does google photos work for that? Thanks in advance for any help!

I also use an iPhone. I post pics hosted in my phone. When I click on the picture icon my phone takes me to my photo file. I click on the pic that I want to post and follow the prompts.

The blank screen may be too "big" to see the pop-up box to upload your picture. Happens to me sometimes. Just pinch the screen smaller and you should see the prompt to upload a pic either from your device (which is what I do and works great) or from a URL you can paste.

That is what I thought it could be but no amount of zooming out will show me anything. Maybe itís an issue with my phoneÖ

Changed browsers from safari to chrome and that seems to have solved it!

Do you get to this screen? If you get this far but have issues with the next steps, it may be your photo format. iPhones can take pictures in a format that is not compatible with what the forum expects.
