Default Posting from iPad

Starting with basics, I cannot see any difference between the options available on this iPad & options available when on my puter

The following are screen grabs of what I have available currently.

Scrolling down gives me access to the "manage attachments" button which opens the window to attach / choose up to 4 pictures. I did find that choosing 4 then clicking the "upload" button gave me the "fault" Trax often complained about reference a "token" being missing at to contact admin don't hold your breath on that one

By selecting 1 picture at a time then "upload" then another picture, then "upload" I managed to "upload" 5 pics. I don't doubt I could have managed all 10 as available using a punter.

The black & white pic is from punter to iPad, the colour pic of me & Alfie in garden was taken with the iPad & the others are screen grabs.

Once pics are "uploaded" and shown listed, close that window returning you to here.

At the top of this screen alongside the "font" options and the smiley is a "paper clip" button, clicking that will show a drop down list of the pictures you "uploaded" at bottom of that drop down menu is "insert all" clicking that will place the pictures into your post, so be aware where the "cursor" is on your screen before you click that option.

Once you have the "attachments" in your post you can space them, add text before, after, etc simply by placing your cursor between the. } here {
Do not put the cursor between them { here } as you scramble that pictures details.

Just realised what a diabolical picture this takes as a screen grab. Luckily you don't have to worry too much about what they say, it's just for you to compare what's visually available on your screen compared to mine.

I strongly believe if a picture does not load or "upload failed" as I think it reports it's due to the picture being too big, e.g. too many pixels rather than actual measurement width x height. A couple of my black & white failed yet they were all scanned / photoed by dad from negatives using a light box he made.

Think that it's been a long time since the ability to upload multiple images in one go disappeared but no problem with uploading one at a time and then posting the lot together.
Rejection on size is easily over come by using a resizing app but another reason for rejection is wrong format . For reasons unknown and not understood some of my scans of old 35 mm slides were stored in tif format which the forum is unable to accept until converted to gif or jpeg.
As good and useful as iPads and other hand held devices are , I find that the good old desk top PC to be the easiest and most reliable for posting images.

I've just tried it and cannot get more than one pic to load at in one post, if I load a pic, then go through the process again loading a second pic then it just replaces the previous pic

On another note, pic related, in posts like Rob's above, if I open a pic to look at it, it works fine, if I then go back to the post to open the next one, I get left with a big black box, that I can sort of see the post through, if you know what I mean, but I cannot then select another pic to look at, the box stays in the same place on the page if I scroll up and down, only way to clear it is leave the thread and re enter it. Some posts with multiple pics, Rory's for example, seem to have a 'next' button on them so you can view all the pics in the post, so don't suffer the above problem. Anyone else had this happen!

Pretty sure a picture taken with phone will be too big

Reference closing the upload screen and everything going black.

Look and see if you have a. 2. In a box top of screen which denotes you have 2 screens active. Rather than closing the Upload screen try touching the 2 which might drop down giving you option to click 1 which would be this window and continue as before.
