Web hosting shouldn't be an issue either, my websites are unlimited for $100 for 2 years. Come on admin, time to step it up
Everyone seems to be doing fine reducing their image size without sacrificing much quality. It seems you're the only one with that problem. Just had a look at your uploads and they are horrendous. Perhaps it's that phone of yours? You might wanna upgrade from that Nokia :lol:

Just use photobucket, set up a free account and copy paste img url into your post, easy to do and there is also a photobucket mobile app...
Haha whos going to do that that off a phone mate? shouldn't have to anyway.

I'm more than willing to donate for a premium hosting account, costs bugger all.

Were living in the stone age here fellas.
Some people do perhaps they know how to utilize their phone more effectively than you.

Or perhaps you should get yourself a computer? If you don't have one perhaps get with the times and stop living in the stone age. Besides, I hope you're not relying on your Nokia to store your photos indefinitely. :lol: :lol:

If you do have a computer, there's no excuse for not being able to resize your images. If it's a PITA, then don't upload. You don't even upload anywhere near as much as some and you having a little cry :lol: Mind you, 99% are probably older and more computer illiterate than you :lol: :lol:

The only person that seems to be kicking up a fuss is you. It seems there are people who use phones or computers. Either way, they are smart enough to make things work :wink:

Haha good one Colin, spoken like a true troglodyte and a bit of a flog to be honest.

Not asking for alot, just an update to the photo uploader to make it more smartphone friendly and put a "beta version" button on the bottom to switch the site into a more rural/satellite internet friendly version.

as suggested by squirter you can go here. :wink:



The time you wasted looking for the meaning of this word neophobes,troglodyte,flog in your dictionary would have been longer than resizing your photo to upload. Grow up :blah:

A lot of forums have the ability for a user to upload a pic of any size these days

It get compressed in the back ground and no one knows the difference.

So Jase, I hear you and with you on your call.

You could upload from your phone on AKFF back in the day. It was a handy feature. Realistically it's neither here nor there to me. Surely there's an app that will resize your photos for you?
