What is the best way to post pictures on Tubenet? I have tried posting them from my phone but they are always too large a file to post.

this is what I do if I want to post a photo from my phone and it's too large.

upload it to facebook or facebook messenger (you can post a photo to your own profile and make the privacy "only me" so nobody else sees it)

from facebook, download the phone to your phone, it will be resized to a size that should be small enough to post here

come back here and add it to a post as an attachment

if that's too much work, there are apps that resize photos for you

On my own pictures, such as I have posted in my Bessophone thread, I take the picture, transfer it from my cell phone to my computer desk top, open it with Paint, re-size it as necessary, save, and post.

To paraphrase Arnold Jacobs, "life is too short to mess with trying to post pictures on TubeNet". It's not worth the time, for this lazy SOB anyway.

The capabilities of the forum hosting software has not kept up with the way most folks take and use pictures these days. I probably boot up my Windows laptop about once every two weeks. My Chromebook I use about two or three times a week, but almost everything I do is on my phone just cuz it's always what's around and is quickest.

For TubeNet, I just put links to my Google albums. eBay and Craigslist let me upload pics right from my phone, easy and quick.
I'm no technophobe or noob, I worked in IT for over 10 years, but my time is worth something.
