yes sir, i have quite a few photos from my guiding job that i would like to share. trouble is,, i dont know anything about how to do this.. not being sarcastic, but i could not even follow your directions, no matter how well written. i have only had a computer for a month, and well, that pretty well explains it.. all of the pics are more than 2000 kb...

upload them to photobucket.com, it will resize them properly for you.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

For you guys hesitating to post pics for all of us to enjoy, worry not, you aint going to break anything. You can upload pictures to this website by pushing a few buttons and bam, picture is uploaded,and we will all "Oooh...and Ahhh.." your pictures.

Let's call this the Bonehead Approach, works for me...

GOAL NUMBER 1: RELOCATE AND RESIZE YOUR PICTURES FIRST
Resize your pictures on your computer first, here is how....
I have created a folder on my desktop, and copy any photo I want to post, into this folder. This allows me to resize it for the internet without messing with the originals. Resize it using any photo editing software, to lets say 150kb for dial up users like myself. Leave this folder open on your taskbar. Now go to the post you want to add the photo to...


GOAL NUMBER 2: SEND YOUR PICTURE TO THIS WEBSITE
Submitting your photo with a reply...
Start your reply to the post. You must select "reply" at bottom of the post, not Quick reply. After you type your text for your reply, select Additional Options, a drop down menu shows up, an "Attach: " cell shows up, you will click on the Browse button. This button forces you to look for your picture on your computer you want to add to the post.... Search and look above "My Computer", look for the "Desktop", select it, and now look for the folder you created earlier with your resized photos...select this folder. The folder opens, and select the picture you wish to post. The name of the photo will populate in the cell, and you select "open". By doing so, you have given Huntwa the address of where the picture you want posted is, on your computer.

You will see this "address" of the photo show up in the Attach: cell.

Now select "Post" and wait while your photo uploads into Huntwa, if you have dialup like me, it takes a minute, so wait and don't fiddle with anything.

I have the same problem, I can download pics to other sites with ease but still can't figure out how to do it on this one!  Dumb I guess!

Your pic is probably to big. use this site. It's easy to use http://www.picresize.com/ Just brouse to where your pic is select it , click on quick resize and select 75% smaller and the click resize. You will then save to your desktop or wherever you want to save it and then attach when creating a message. Easy after the first time. Ping me if you need help.

First time trying this website to resize and it is pretty simple.

Go to your profile and click on the heading where it says "Profile Pictures", you will be able to posts photos.

You cannot add photos to pm's.

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one!  Anything this complicated is beyond me...  :sry:

I have this problem, too. I think it has to do with native resolution or whether you downsize it prior to attempting to 'poast'

Sounds like you are downloading photos from your phone. When this happens you can go into your phone gallery and rotate the photo as needed so it will load correctly and then modify your post by reloading the photo again after you have rotated it.

I was able to post pics from my IPhone 4 a couple of weeks ago, but now I can not. I'm doing everything the same as before, but nada. What gives? I even tried to post one of the same pics as a test - still won't work.

If the photos are oversized, if they are larger than 800x600 they likely will not post, please try resizing your photos.

Bearpaw. Pardon my ingratitude and spoiled nature but 800x600 is pretty low Rez. I've often been hesitant to upload and share photos because I feel they look like crap. Is there anyway you can increase the max allowable resolution?
