Posting images on the forum from an iPad

Post by App K »

I know this has been covered umpteen times before, but I still have a problem reducing an image on my iPad to post in the for sale section..it basically just spits it back at me to say it’s too large.
Must be an easy way?.

Found on the interweb after searching "reduce image size on ipad"

How to resize photos on your iPhone and iPad

Launch Image Size from your Home screen.
Tap the Image Icon in the upper right corner. It looks like a photograph.
Tap the image you would like to resize.
Tap Choose in the lower right corner.
Select your image resize option at the top of the page. ...
Tap the Download button in the lower right corner to save your image resize.

I have no experience of any Apple based software so have no idea of the actual steps and the app required, but I guess you need the Image Size app to do this

I use an iPad, I downloaded “resize it” app from the App Store, worked for me, but it was a while ago So I’d need to refresh my memory on how to use it, seem to remember it was quite easy. Hope this helps.

I’ve been all over the internet..it just doesn’t work.
Ive done it previously but it’s such a convoluted process that I give up usually.

Another option is to email the photo to yourself. It’ll ask you what size to send the photo, if you say “medium” that should be ok. Then you need to save the photo from your email and upload that

I use Image Size from App Store. It’s simple, but the free version hassles you with adds. If you’re more adventurous, you can’t go far past Adobe Lightroom for iPad. Free and will do much more than just resize.

But Tim’s tip is probably the simplest and easiest :D

I email them to myself and then add them to the post never fails , but sometimes they come out upside down for some people but never me when I view them .
