    I do hope the photo dilemma can be improved on as the previous instructions to post worked for Macs much easier.

    Thanks for your help!
    I'll 2nd that and add IPads to that as well.

    For pictures to show up on QB the right way, you take the picture with the iPad horizontal not vertical. It puts the picture in your camera roll. You open a new thread, type in your text and click on the tiny paper clip to manage attachments. The little box will come up and you choose from existing, click on the picture from your camera roll, click upload, click submit and voila!
    I did that exactly that from my ipad and the pictures still uploaded to big.

    I do not know if this has been mentioned but the format of the image also makes a big difference. PNG formats have much larger files than a jpg. Reason is PNG are for editing so things are not merged together. jpg is merged into a single layer so they are smaller. I have a recipe program that I failed to notice the default setting was PNG so every recipe took twice the memory on my computer. Once converted to jpg everything was lightning fast for loading. You can keep your original as PNG but save another copy a jpg and it will speed things up.

    Thanks but the issue was not about uploading pictures but resizing pictures so they'll show up smaller.
