    Wow, emailing, arse’ing around with your phones sounds like such a pain in the ass! Like I said Smumug is so easy. I can upload from my phone or any other device easily any time and easy up on here or any other forum. Also just copy the link and pop them up in messenger, FB etc.

    I started using it as the guy who owns ADVrider.com also owns SmugMug and part of the incom helps keep ADV add free, I spend a ton of time on there, almost 10 000 posts in 12 years. I support both ADV and Smugmug plus the ease of uploading photos is worth a lot to me.

    Been backing up my photos to Smugmug for almost ten years. Guess that's where I need to upload them from in order to post on this site.

    Is it possible this site needs to be upgraded?

    Yes I've had no trouble in the past.
    I will log out and log back in and try it again.

    I have no trouble posting pictures elsewhere.

    I don't have another device.

    I load the pictures from my camera to my laptop, not a cellphone.

    No doubt that a photo sharing site is the best way to go if you are going to post a lot of pictures- anywhere.
    I think that SmugMug is top of the line but it has a fee for this flexibility.
    It would seem very few have trouble posting a picture here on the MOA forum.....really......have a look at our photography section. Those that have had an issue, The Mod Team has been able to help with some of the basic hints already listed in this thread.
    Upgrade the site- to what? As mentioned, ADV is supported by SmugMug and an upgrade to a parallel SmugMug would probably need an increase costs here. It’s also something to consider that some that have a SM account have trouble as well.
    If you are having trouble posting a picture, chances are we can help you through it. What we can’t help with is trying Forum actions from “restricted” networks- such as at work or computer/device setups that are outside the norm.
    There have been sooooo many comparisons on how easy it is to upload to Facebook......It’s different really. FB is a “vacuum” for your info, as recent news reports have exposed.

    Try the logout routine. It sounds like a size issue with the pictures. If it’s Windoze, their updates are notorious for changing settings, maybe you could check?
    Let us know how you make out.

    How about a “copy and paste” of what the forum is telling you is the problem?
    What posting procedure are you starting with?

    Hit Attachments
    Hit Browse

    Find picture in my picture files

    Hit Upload

    I see the spinney thing going around for two minutes.


    Then that message pops up.


    I hit OK and it disappears.

    That looks to me like a "time out" on the attempt......Possibly due to internet connection or speed of the connection.

    This page has some good info- https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...picture/page53 especially Lew's post and pictorial.

    Is this a sudden new problem or months old?

    I guess the next thing is to try from another device or the same device from a different internet connection.

    Sounds like the picture is too big to upload. What operating system are you using? Windows has a paint program which would tell you the resolution (size, pixels) of the image. I'm sure Apple products have something similar.

    If you want to PM me we can exchange emails and you can send me the picture and I can give it a look over...and even a test upload. Or try googling "how to reduce picture size" and check out a few websites.
