Twice walked from St Jean to Estella and once from Sarria to Santiago. Maybe someday I'll find the time to do the entire walk.
I've found the time. Just completed SJPP to Santiago. 25 Aug to 1st Oct, 2016.
And now the Portuguese from Lisbon.
It's photos in 'Gallery' I'd like to post.

This is what I do.
Log into the forum using your phone.
Go to where you want to post the photo.
At the bottom right of the box where you a write post is three buttons: Post Reply, Upload a File and More Options.
Select Upload a File.
Select Photo Library which should take you to gallery.
Best of luck.

Thank you. That seems to have worked the magic.

You’re welcome. It’s taken me a while but slowly slowly I am getting the hang of these things. I’ve just recently worked out how to reduce the number of pixels in photos that I want to post by texting them to myself first and then saving the texted image. :)

Reducing the number of pixels in photos can be done using apps that are available for ios (apple) and android (most others). On my iphone I use Photo Resize. If you can, save the resized photo into a named folder and when selecting it for upload, select that folder rather than the All Photos folder.

Most phones and tablets take photos at a resolution level suitable for printing in glossy maagazines, way too many pixels for screens of phones, tablets or home computers. They just don’t need to have so many pixels in them. 800 x 600 or so is quite sufficient for most online uses and even that size nearly fills the screen of most phones. If photos have too many pixels, the program displaying them cuts them down to a lower level, but if the photo is a 4000 x 3000 pixel file, it is 25 times larger than needed whenever it is copied or moved. When phone users are limited to specific data limits on their plans these large files consume data allocations with no benefit to the user. And they take longer to load. So cutting them down in height and width measured in pixels is really worth while.

Hope this helps.

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
If you are using ACDSee on your computer for example when resizing you can choose only width option (usually I choose 1000) and it automatically converts/resize the height too so the frame remains the same. With 1000 width it's enough to post 10 photos in your post.

If you are using ACDSee on your computer for example when resizing...
If you are resizing on a computer there are indeed many options. My favourite windows app for viewing, cropping, editing and resizing photos is Irfanview. But there are hundreds of options.

My suggestions were for anyone needing to resize photos using a phone or tablet app. The method mentioned of attaching a photo to a text and using the resize options provided by the text app does work but gets a bit tedious if you want to resize more than a few photos. Also, all that messaging consumes data allowances. (They get you coming and going, literally! )
