Totally understand - just some feedback in the interest of making it as easy as possible for people to post images.

Re: Pictures

And we certainly appreciate it. The one thing we have always tried to do is make things easier. We have received a ton of compliments on how easy our forum is to navigate, but then we know full well there are those that thing other forums are easier. It is truly a challenge to suit the likes of every member. I will be the first to admit though, that I really like the image uploading feature of vBulletin 4. One developer quoted me $500 to get that feature installed with no guarantees that it would not cause conflicts with other mods and add-ons we have. I am not too comfortable with that kind of risk in spending $500.

When you select the image from your computer using the browse button right click to rotate if needed, then click open to upload it.

Actually that only rotates it in the view of your local folder You would have to save it as rotated.
I tried that! Big bummer that doesn't work!

And in Windows 8 it loads all the pictures off my iPhone in the folder as right side up making it even more time consuming as I must upload here first to find orientation.

I've been using the Windows photo viewer for singles or just a few, and MS Office 2010 has a nice light weight photo editing tool that will allow changes (including rotation) to several pictures.

Here's a neat little tool - https://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

It adds right click functionality to resize photos. But when you must do 20 photos for a 'how to' thread and you're doing a couple of those threads on different topics it gets to be a pain having all the duplicate smalls.

I've found it easiest to simply create a temp folder and put the small copies in that.

Maybe mark it as future upgrade possibility.

Do you admin the back end, Sonnie?

You mentioned a charge of 500.00 to get the feature installed. I know some other forum admins that have managed the back end themselves, although to what extent I am not sure.

Re: Pictures

Yeah... I do most of the typical coding, a few template mods and so forth, but I don't do custom modification such as this would require. That is a little beyond my level.

I hear you. I am comfortable diving into forum configuration, but I don't want to screw any other custom work up.

FYI your ipad / iphone app size and rotate photos (as someone has mentioned) perfectly.

Sonnie- RE: the iDevice and pictures. That works great, and I've been using that for easy picture upload.

But anytime you edit a post using an iDevice all the formatting disappears.

Any chance of getting this fixed?
