I used "Image Size" out of the app store. I use it to resize rather then crop so I have it set to the max width size here 1180 and let the other one go to what ever it goes to. With my iphone that is 544 x 1180. It has a lot of other function which I have not played with. For me if I can get the rotate and size I want then it is doing its job.

Thanks, Ed. Looks like that app will do the trick! I'll try it.

The problem with this way of posting is that if imgur or whatever host you choose decides to change the way they do things like Photobucket did recently, the images are lost forever from the post.
If you post the pictures directly to Shopsmith, they stay permanently with the post as long as the post exists.
Broken links are a frustration and posting to a third party site invites that.

Thanks I am new to this forum world. Never used or been on forum websites and their interface is hard to understand. Thanks for letting me know about this feature.

I also tried the Shopsmith1, and couldn't discern any real difference between it and the basic Shopsmith Board Preference.

With any of the Board Preferences, the same general limits apply as to picture size (2050 dpi max wide x 1180 dpi max tall x 2 MB max) and total of 10 pictures per post.

Each of the Board Preferences has its own look and feel, some showing more and some showing less info, or showing the same info in a different location or format.
This is a very good guide, but I need to know how to post directly from this https://gbapps.net/gbwhatsapp-apk/ app.

Why do you want to post from whatsapp or any other app? The simplest way is to just post directly to the Shopsmith site the way it is set up to use.

I've never had an Apple device in my hands, but they should have the ability to resize and post pictures directly to the forum. I do have an Android tablet. It is a pretty crude and useless device compared to a computer, but it has the ability to resize pictures and if it had some kind of security that I could trust it to hold any of my pictures, it should be easy to post them directly to the forum.

Any device that uses a cloud somewhere for storage of files isn't a device I would ever trust. Apple has been hacked numerous times and leaked private information. You are much better off using a computer and shying away from any cloud storage. Keep your personal files personal and backed up at home if you care about them.
