    Then "from computer."

    I browse my photos and choose the correct one. Then I upload it.

    I haven't been able to post a photo in a long time. From my phone or any computer. I know how, but when I go to upload the photo, it just doesn't show up.

    I have that issue as well. I am assuming the files are too large.

    The file size has to be under 488.3 kb

    This works a lot of times also.

    1) Go to the photo you want to post and click on it then right click and select Copy
    2) Go to make a post and Click the A/A button until it turns white instead of blue
    3) Click on the message box where you would normally type a reply, hit right click and select Paste

    That method works 90% of the time for me. For some reason some file won't paste but most will.

    I use a free online jpg reducer and a gif reducer. I post a lot of pictures and gifs so that is the easiest and quickest way for me.

    You can also resize photos by pasting them into PAINT and there is a resize function there also.

    That's the way I use to do it. But as many as I post it took too long.

    Mines not a size issue, I don’t believe. Because sometimes it will tell me the file is too large. Most of the time, I don’t get any kind of warning, the picture just doesn’t show up.

    That has happened to me also. I either just retry or refresh my browser then it works.
