I guess I'm late to the party
« on: August 11, 2016, 07:00:56 PM »
I've been busy as hell lately and haven't posted as much useless and inane crap as I usually do. Is that cheering I hear? Anyway, I went to post from my iPad as always and I couldn't post pics. Always could in the past, no problems. What's changed? I'm sure it's been discussed, but I'm too lazy to search for it. A little help?

Haha! Cheat, you ARE the man!

Whereas I suspect many of you spend hours a day on your computers for work and the Hot Chicks thread, I spend minutes. I have only the iPad and I'm not very computer literate. I just downloaded some new app to see if I can change the file format so I can post pics. Mostly I guess I just don't understand WHY things changed.

And Cheat, keep it up! You're my hero!

It's those dammed Silicon Valley intellectual get-a-life's that just have to mess with plain folk. If they'd just learn how to surf, nothing would ever change........

Our old ipad mini can add photos no problem -> whereas our new ipad air2 cannot.  Even very small kb file size jpg images do not upload.  Not being a computer geek - cannot get this work when the boxed message error about jpg file type appears onscreen. 

It may be the problem has to do with ios 9 and compatibility to this website - since our OSX computers work fine as well.  It would be nice to get this resolved -> as others seem to have problems uploading as well.

Also often get the boxed server error message when trying to sign in.

I have the same problem posting photos since I get the same error as lots of you do. It seems I cannot post photos from my Pictures folder in my operating system. I've found a way to post pictures here, but it does entail lots of work.

If I have a photo I want to post here, I resize the photo to the size I want. Then I upload the resized photo to my Photobucket account. I then copy the IMG code Photobucket provides for the photo. Then I come to the Zone site, write a message and then insert the IMG code after the message has been typed. Then I preview the message to make sure the photo shows. If it shows, then I submit the message.

this works on  my Mac Mini
On my desktop, I keep a folder named "111" (because it pops up 1st, when I export from Iphoto)

In Iphoto, I create an album, to group pictures to post
I select ALL the photos in that album, go up to "file" and scroll down to "Export" (a dialogue window opens)

I choose
JPEG quality - High
Size - Large
File name - Sequential

I export to folder "111" on my desktop and then click OK
All the photos will appear in 111, and will be sized between 500 to 700 kb

On the Zone
At the bottom of the post, I click "Attachments and other options"
then Click
select
then desktop
then folder "111"
Then double click pictures, in the order you want them to appear in the post.

I have a step by step "Mac for creeks" written up if you need really detailed instructions.

of course, I have no idea if any of this is compatible with the newer Ipads  :o

Looks suspiciously the same size that some desperate men rode on Logs at the Isle of Rhodes earlier today!

Have a bad feeling that the water was a mite nippier..

One note for those of you on newer Apple devices. They have changed their photo capture format from jpeg  to HEIF format. There are some good reasons, like a lot of things, you have to incur some pain or hassle to get the benefits.
