Help with photos please...
« on: October 27, 2015, 02:37:16 PM »
Does anyone know how l can get photos taken with my Android tablet onto the forum? 

I can add them to FB but don't usually want to!

Hope someone can help - l'm finding it a real nuisance using the camera, putting them on the laptop, getting the link, etc etc.....l'd much rather use this tablet even though the photos aren't such a good quality.   
Getting them from this onto Flickr would be good too  ???

Hmm, not sure even though I'm answering  :)

Is there no way to copy and paste directly into your comment?  Maybe some sort of long hold with your finger or something?

Or do you use Dropbox maybe?

For Flickr, are you using the Flickr app or going to the website?

I've got Windows 8.1 on the bigger tablet I own and have never really bothered to learn about the smaller one.  Maybe I should...

Edit to add.  If you have the Flickr app, you just click on the menu icon and then upload queue and a camera icon appears in the top right corner.  Click that and it gives you the option to take a pic or choose from a saved image.

Me again  :)

When you post here  there is a bit that says attachments and other options underneath.

Click it, the I think it said choose file and it'll open various options on your tablet where pics are stored.

I've just tried a test but my file was too big.

More info - if you have photo editor on your tablet, you can resize in there - very easy, even I managed it.  Then the test above is an upload from the tablet so it appears to work.

This is all such fun - not  ;D

Thanks Claire.  I installed the flickr app and managed to put the tablet photo on there very easily....deleted it, by mistake..... ::) Quality not brilliant though.
I find flickr barely works now and l couldn't get the link to share it on the forum.  I must have another try!

Meanwhile....l'll look at the photo editing capability again - it just looked like effects, cropping and rotating but there has to be a resizing option hiding somewhere.....

Grrrrr!

Flickr was working a bit better so l have succeeded from there!

Such poor quality though....guess l'd better go back to the camera and laptop lark....

Thanks so much  :-*
