Hi, could someone please advise how to send photos from mini ipad to the correct page of the forum.
How do you get the photo onto the right thread?

It means you need to shrink the picture down in size. You can download an app from itunes called simple resize, it should be free and will do the work for you....I think

I usually go to my pictures and just "Edit" the picture I want to use, then use the "crop" option to make the picture slightly smaller and then "save" it.
Then try to upload it to the site as mentioned before.
If you crop it enough it will be accepted.

Problem with cropping is you're not shrinking the photo in size, just reducing the viewed area so you could lose some of the interesting bits

This is true but I now if want to take a picture of a plant or the garden for this site, I don't fill the screen with what I want to show but take a slightly wider shot and then crop it down.
There is probably an easier way but this works for me at the moment. :D

If you email the pictures to yourself the ipad gives you the option before you send on what size they should be sent. icon_thumleft
