Now all hopes of ever posting pictures are dashed with your revelation that my $29.95 my ZTE phone doesn't have enough memory for Tapatalk.  I hunted in the apps store on my phone but couldn't find Tapatalk in the offerings.  Now I know why.  And no, we're not cheap--just thrifty---
Not sure what you mean by app store. I suspect that you were looking in the app store provided by your carrier or by the phone manufacturer.

To get Tapatalk you need to go to the Google Play Store app. Even your phone should have ample memory to run that app. If not, then you might have way too many photos or videos on the phone.

That's too bad. I'm all for being thrifty, but maybe this is one of those times when it's possible to be too thrifty. To be honest, I've seen some low-cost smartphones but never one that limited contacts and apps to this degree. Seems like it's not really a smartphone, just a regular phone with a touch screen.

In this case, then I'm out of ideas for easily posting photos.

Actually, the forum is really easy to read and manipulate on a smartphone. Tapatalk optimizes for the small screen, and there is no loss of readability. The photos are also clear and easy to save. It's also possible to upload photos that have been previously stored on the cloud (such as Google Drive or OneDrive) through the app. All this without the need for any additional photo storage sites or manipulating any links. That's the why of the small screen.

For uploading, a computer is certainly ok. However, before uploading from a PC you have to first save to the PC from the camera and then make sure the file size is small enough to be accepted if they are not hosted online somewhere. On the app, the photos can be sent directly from the camera or gallery to the app and are automatically converted so that the size is acceptable.

I have nothing at all to do with the app and get nothing from recommending it. It's just that I have found it to be extremely handy. In the end, whatever works best for someone to accomplish their goals is what they should do.

It is a smart phone it has navigation wifi,internet,ask Google even has a hot spot just dosen't have the memory to run a lot of apps which is ok with me I only charge mine about every forth day  it works as good for me as my wife's $1000 phone does for her

I have a bit of standing here as a web developer for my real job. If we value the photos we post and want them to stay with the post in perpetuity we should use the native photo hosting tools the forum provides.   I see all the time great forum posts with hotlinked photos that are dead, gone forever.

It's certainly not as easy, but I don't think anyone is here because our hobby is easy.

You are so correct and totally agree. Maybe we should just ask Gary why there is not better image support for the forum and has the image upload settings cranked down so hard. Everyday storage becomes less of a cost issue and since SMF product features take care of processing the images it's not clear what might be the concern.

Updated - quick search finds built in feature to resize uploaded images. May eliminate the issue about resizing limits but not the uploading images from not so smart phones.

If you just make a copy of your picture you want to put in and rename it. Then mouse over it to see how many mb it is and resize on your computer in your own picture file which if you have Win 10 should be there in your picture program to 40 per picture you can get two in your post or one in at 100.  Grin

Computer code was not my talent.
I can Easily say phones you put in your pocket are “code built” using a:
1 Newer format and somewhat smaller, i guess like all the dam car stuff!
2 They call them smart because they were taught from older experience.
3 Seems all forums i frequent are the same in photo hosting and they do or have been or are continually being updated to better use the Newer phone and whatever else smaller format.

My first pc had a 12 meg hard drive. I took 18 pictures today with my smarter than i phone and it automaticly made a video, ugh! with music.  I thought about sending it to my brother and found out it was 67 megs? Whaaat

Someone please esplane native hosting

Richard is right.  Therefore I upgraded my phone to a LG K20 which supports Tapatalk.  I've taken several pics and been able to upload them to my computer (Windows 10) but haven't a clue how to upload them to a post (like this one) from the phone.  Is it done through my Gmail?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Jack

With Tapatalk, you need to be logged in as a user of this forum. One you've got the forum opened, there are three dots on the upper-right hand corner of the screen that are stacked one on top of the other. If you tap on these dots you get to the menu. Top item in the menu gives you the place to log on.

Once you do that, then you can add new topics or reply to current ones directly from the app. You can also add your photos through the app - no need to use any other app to do this.

On my phone, there is an orange circle with an arrow. Tap on that and I get the screen to add a reply.

I type the message into the upper section.

Just below the section for entering your message, there is a section where you can add a photo from your camera or your gallery. I've circled it on the attached photo. Tap the gray box with the plus symbol and it should give you a screen where you can choose what type of image you want to add.
