    I can't seem to do it from my phone as the pics are always too big and receive an error. However, from my laptop I open the pic, take a screen shot, paste in "paint" and then crop/copy a smaller section of the pic and either save it smaller and upload or even just paste the smaller version into the text box of the message or post and that seems to work.

    I've used a photo host like Imgur and just copied and pasted the BB link.

    Several months ago we installed an automatic image resizer.. works for almost all big pictures, some cel phones take crazy high res pictures and just need to be set to a more normal resolution for posting on the board here.

    To add a picture:
    Click upload a file
    select the picture you want..double click it
    It uploads automatically.. you select thumbnail or full image..

    Oooh, supercharged motor, dig the dog dishes..

    Paul,

    Are you talking about posting in a thread or a PM?

    I've also been wondering about how to add a pic to a "conversation" or "private message". I haven't been able to figure that out from my phone or computer. Thanks!

    I've done it using Imgur by copying and pasting the BB link.

    Seems that's only doable via the mobile site and not the app at the moment but it works.
