Is there any way to make it easier for one to upload pictures from a phone? I cannot upload an image from my phone without the entire thing crashing. I tried uploading my pictures to Google Drive and downloading to my computer. I tried 3 times to put pictures in a trip report this way, but instead of the image inserting, it would just display the image fullscreen. Because this forum has no auto-save, it deleted everything I typed so far. These issues are why I don't post as many TR's as I used to. If I can't find a relatively easy solution, I may not be able to post them anymore.
I have a Droid Turbo. It used to always upload, but then stopped working. It would freeze when I hit the insert button. I'm going to try again, but I don't think I'll have any luck. I already typed the text to my next report in Google Drive, so I'm not going to lose the entire thing.
I'll try restarting. My battery has also been draining recently. My longest ever trip report had 61 pictures, and it uploaded in one shot, but that wasn't using my phone. My most recent one was rather short at only 7. I'm trying to get at least 10 in my next 2. There'll be one report from Steamboat and one form Hunter.
I upload pics to my flickr account and then get the url for the static pic and link it using the add image button. Works very well all of the time. It does take an extra minute to get the flickr url but it is worth it as all of the pics stay within my control. Not a big deal here with Harvey, but I'd rather keep ownership of all of my pics on all websites.
I rarely post to the Forum from my iPhone. About the only time I do so is from the chairlift or gondi to give a quick conditions update. Including a photo from my iPhone worked OK until about a month ago, since then I can't get iPhone photos to post. Not really a big deal for me, but it would be nice.
Sno, I'd recommend downloading your photos from your phone to a computer and then post from there. Plus typing on a cell phone sucks (or I'm just old). And anytime you're putting up a big post on the Forum (like a trip report), it definitely pays to periodically save your work by pasting a copy into Word or Notepad just in case (I learned the hard way).
