    They will upload faster if you have the capability of resizing the pictures.... I resize mine because I have my camera set for HD and the pixel count is too high in a full size picture... Note the resize function in the window... makes a big difference in downloading or uploading or what ever the heck it is....

    Brian , this is a timely post because I wanted to upload a full size photo for a recent post but could only upload it as a thumbnail. Following your instructions I just converted the thumbnail photo into a full size one.

    I was able to figure out how to post a full-size photo. But now I forgot what I did so I have to figure it out again.

    This next problem to solve is how to cancel a draft. I don't see that option anymore.

    Just ran into this Thread:
    Brings back memories of my first day on this New Platform.
    Were it not for Brian Mudd talking me through my first couple Pics, I don't know how I would have gotten them posted!!!
    About a week later & about 400 Pictures that week, I got it down pat.:D

    Thanks Again Brian,
    Bear

    Can't you just delete everything in the Reply Box?
    Then if you already hit "post reply", the empty box will be on the forum until a Mod deletes it.
    And if you didn't already hit "Post Reply" you can just move on.

    I don't think there's a way to get rid of a draft. I've tried numerous times - unsuccessfully. Let us know if you figure it out. Full size photo's from a computer just drag and drop them into your thread and click full size. Off a phone can't help you out sorry.

    I'm going to test that out. I've tried it before with this new system, deleting the text, but when I returned to the window the text had reinstated itself. I was trying to avoid posting empty text boxes but I'll give it a try in a sec. But you remember the old Cancel Draft button (or whatever it was called), don't you?

    Nope, the system won't allow you to post a box without any text. I guess I could just type in an emoji or write "goober" or something instead.

    OK---Just put an Asterisk in.
    That will hold it until a Mod can get rid of it.
    It's better than posting something you don't want seen.

    Like say you cussed me out, but then thought about it & remembered "Bear's a Nice guy".
    All you have to do is Delete the whole works & put a asterisk there instead.

    Or you can just post "Mods, please delete this post."

    Thanks,

    I do remember a Cancel button from somewhere---Is that where it was?

    OOOPS---It took me longer to type that than it took Brian to tell how to do it right.

    Thanks Brian!

    Yep. Thanks to Brian for pointing it out where it is now. But, the old system was much simpler. Microsoft has the same problem with taking a simple to understand system configuration and updating it into something complex with every new Windows OS version.

    That kinda stuff doesn't bother me as much as most, because everything "Computer" is hard for me, until I do it a few times. Even with my Macs.
    That's why we have Brian around here. You didn't think he was just here for his good looks, did you?
    Just kidding, Brian.
