Testing 1 2 3
Is that a picture that was actually taken with your iPhone?
Rainier10, the ruggedly handsome fella in that photo.  Yes he did take the photo with his iphone.

Since I did an update on my iPhone7 plus about 6 months ago,( no idea what that iOs was but now I am up to 11. something)  anyways  to post photos now I have to screen shot the photo on my phone and upload that screenshot image.  My guess is the new update on the phone gave me a better picture quality and it is to big of a file using the original photo.  The screen shot is a lower quality and that is why it allows me to post the photo of a screen shot.

I'm fully updated as well. No issue.

My guess is he is trying to post pictures from his iPhone. Only way to do it is to take a screenshot of the photo on your phone and then post the screenshot. Still a pain, but it’s the only work-around I know of.

I have always been able to post pics from my iphone without issue and without any workarounds.
Having said that, @Rainier10  said he couldn't post a pic from his phone either yesterday. Maybe I should try it as I haven't recently.
I haven’t been able to for over a year. I thought it was a known issue, so I never said anything else.  :chuckle: Just tried it again on this thread to verify, and my post wouldn’t go thru. It just takes me to this.

That file is too big. That's why it's white screening on you.

@Antlershed  Curious to see what your camera settings are at in your phone.

Settings ---> Camera ---> Formats

Are you set to "High Efficiency" or "Most Compatible"??

From the settings page I have to scroll down to camera, not hit general, if I scroll to camera then I get that screen.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Oops. I guess I might have screwed the pooch on that one.

Really I don't know if that's the difference that makes photos work for me or not. Usually I use Tapatalk on my phone but that Rainier10 pic I posted from the normal safari browser.
