I used the upload feature from my phone and it worked pretty well. Quite a time saver! I'm finding that I want to upload and post a photo while I'm in a thread. Is there an easy way to put a pop-up shortcut to the user upload page so I can get to it quickly while I'm posting on a thread?

I do plan to make it so the upload form is also available in that pop-up. For now, what I've used is the link in the navigation menu. For full browser's that's usually on the right. For mobile phones, the navigation menu is the icon on the upper left. You'd probably want to be sure to open in a new tab, though, so it doesn't lose whatever you may have typed so far. I should be able to setup a button to open it in a new tab as well, though. I'll have to look into it.

Btw, one thing I lagged on was to make the upload manager mobile friendly. It's still on my list, but really isn't laid out well for a mobile user. Also still to be done.

Ah found it. Right on the side there, my mistake. The mobile version wasn't scaling the photos but it didn't seem to affect functionality. The upload went through without an issue and I was able to get to it when I loaded the site on my main laptop browser.

Better with the XIMG tags than the regular IMG tags. :) You don't put a URL in between, but you can also copy and paste the XIMG code as easy as the other. The reason I say its better with XIMG, is that the displayed image is the same (small, perfect for embedding into the post), but users have the ability to click to view it at a larger resolution.

This is Didi, he passed away today, so to get his pics fast was really great. You are a wonderful man to do this for us all! So much work and I'm very glad I belong to this site!

Yeah. In the little bit that I've used it myself, I've realized that it's so much easier than even my own methods before, with nicer results.

Now that I've figured out how to load the pics correctly on the Image Upload, it's so easy to post to my thread. Thanks so much Alex, it's a great improvement!

I agree. It's a whole lot easier than Photobucket was, especially after they "upgraded" I couldn't seem to figure out how to use it after their 'improvement'. Thanks, Alex.

Is there a limit as to how many photos we can upload with the new tool? What I mean is, would it eventually tell us that we can't upload new photos unless we delete some? Or would the system auto-delete old ones for us?

The images I upload are right side up in my computer when I preview them before uploading, and then upside down when uploaded. I don't see a way to rotate them. I made a copy on my computer and rotated the image upside down, but it stayed upside down when uploaded. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks
