Title: How to resize a photo to be able to post it on BeeMaster.
Post by: BeeMaster2 on August 25, 2018, 08:28:58 am
To bee able to post a picture from your phone, you need to resize it. In the ap store, look for Resize It.
It looks like this:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


When you open it, look at the bottom left side. There is an icon of a photo. Click on it and open the camera roll or what ever your camera calls your photos. Select a photo and then at the bottom of the page, select the Resize It icon. When it opens, change the larger number to 600. It automatically sets the other number. Then at the top left corner, click Done.

At the bottom of the page, click on the circle with the down arrow. Then find the Save Image icon.
Open BeeMaster. To post the pictures, click on Attachments and other Options. This will open up Choose file. Click on it. I then use the Moments file because it puts the photo that you just resized as the last photo. Select the photo, and then click on the insert attachment. If you are going to add another photo, you must use the hive more attachments button.


You can also crop the photo with this tool.

crmauch I could not get it to work either. I went instead to Resizer App. Worked first time.

 Question: After selecting the photo (under 80 kB). I click on the  'insert attachment 0' link next to it.   In the edit box appears 'attachment=0][/attachment' (outer brackets removed). Shouldn't a reference to the photo be there too?  What should a good attachment look like codewise?

Chris,
That is all you will see until you post the reply. Try it on this thread to see how it works.
I usually put a blank line (return) between each of the photos.

See problem now.   Preview says invalid attachment,  but when posted it works.

I had posted the following on the topic >Mixing sugar syrup by the drum<
A couple members were discussing problems posting pictures. In case the other methods described here fail. I am adding the following option thanks to The15thMember. I hope this helps.

"I use Microsoft Paint on Windows 8, so you will need a PC for this to work, and it may be slightly different if you have another version of Windows.  Open your file explorer, go to your pictures, and right click on the picture you want to resize.  Roll over "Open with" and choose Microsoft Paint.  In Paint you'll see a button that says "Resize" and if you click that it opens a window where you can reduce the picture by a percentage.  For most of my pictures, I make them about 20% of their original size, but it will depend on your camera how much you need to reduce them.  When you are happy with the size of the image, click save and at the bottom it will tell you the new file size.  Just be sure the individual pictures are less that 200 kb and you'll be good to go."
