Photo Upload
#1
I seem to remember there was a post or two that explained how to upload photos using the attachment link below, but I cannot find it if it did exist.

Several times I have tried posting a few photos directly from my phone, yet when click "Add Attachment", a message comes up saying the file size is too big.

Am I doing this incorrectly?  

There are a few railroad tunnel photos I would like to post that I think TA and stanky would find interesting, and if I could without my usual path of uploading to flickr and then transferring it here, that would be excellent. 

Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

Beats me, mate.

There was a limit of five photos at once that I've just disabled, but there's no limit on size, so I don't see anything in the forum to stop you.

It's not your phone settings?

Oh shit.

If a guy like grayman (super competent, etc.) is having trouble with this, and TA says "beat me", then it is hopeless for me.
In all this time, i've managed to post one photo. In nature boys; of a pair of skinks,iirc, on a rock in my yard.
I think it took 24 hours of constant psychological torture to manage that.
Pretty good pic, too, as i recall. (Not on Grifter's level, of course. Gosh, i wish he'd drop in now and then.)

We have a lot of interesting records; mostly in old school format.
There is a bare minimum of kitten porn.
I was more into taking shots, with a tripod and a Leica; on good slide film, of things of grand beauty and strangeness.
In this collection, there is copious procedure photos of the craft of rubble stonemasonry.
When i'm gone, this stuff is gone.

My single greatest regret, regarding my father's collection, and letting it go to auction, was in collection of high quality photos, from way back.
(He was born in 1911; by 1923, he was way into photography. He also has a chemistry lab. Early photography and chemistry have an overlap.)

My Dad took thousands of photos, back in the day, with top quality equipment, and had a dark-room, and the proper chemicals, to reveal the photo.
I have 3 siblings. One done died. We all decided together, that his stuff needed to go to auction.
All of it. It was too horrible to focus in on particulars. He had a lot of stuff. Great stuff. But we were all slightly bitter about the stuff. He loved it more than he loved us.

This is such a common complaint.
Turns out, almost everyone will choose stuff over love and life.

But i do wish i'd kept me Pa's slides.

And i wish i knew how to share mine.

There is no chance i will pay to do it.
Nor will i charge.

These days, people post pictures of their lunch.
I have quality pics of the procedures in the oldest craft known to man.
It's not prostitution, btw.

It's rubble stonemasonry.

After I die, i can almost picture my grand kids, rooting thru my shit....and dumping the precious archives in the dump.
Like we did with our Pa.

shit.

Not sure what the problem is. 

This is the message I get:

Quote:The file you attached is too large. The maximum size for that type of file is 500 kilobytes.

Ah!

I see there's a completely different place to adjust, so I've put it up to 10MB, which should be enough. That's all the software allows anyway.

Have another go!

Still get the same message.

However, I figured out how to resize my photos so that I can post them, so have a look at the train thread.

I think I know what that problem is and I'll go change so you don't have to resize them.

Typical software genius who designed MyBB has two completely different settings for the sale thing.

In fact, I'll come back and say more about developer/programmer types.

They are the perfect stereotype, in that every joke, stereotype and pejorative, because they're all exactly the same. Every other occupation has good and bad, but software developers are all fucking identical in the myopia they have, and the total lack of understanding of how the world actually works.

Because I dabble in software, and use a lot of it, all the fucking time I see glaring, stupid and illogical errors. I've just been trying amend some .php code elsewhere because the moron who wrote it doesn't understand that "prettier" does not mean "better", and almost never means "more functional".

I have yet to meet - or use the software of - a developer who was capable of tying their own shoes.

They might have an IQ of 2000, but in the real world, they're useless cunts we would have let die a few thousand years ago.

Fuck, I hate software people.
