    Recommendations for photo sharing ?

    Apologies, I know this has been asked several times but I cannot find the thread/s.
    I can upload photos onto here using the TZ app on my i-phone, but the quality is poor.
    How do I upload better quality images ?
    (Please base recommendations on ease of use Iím an old fashioned technophobe !).

    P.S. And why does this app remove punctuation ?!

    postimages.org lets me post my habitually awful watch pictures here without too much difficulty. But I use my iPad for this purpose.

    With Tapatalk you only get a certain allowance each month for uploads, once that limit is exceeded you can only send lower resolution photos which show as grainy.

    I pay 79p per month for VIP membership of Tapatalk which allows me to upload unlimited high-resolution photos.

    I use imgbb as it lets you choose how long the photo stays up and also resize it on upload so it's a reasonable size for forum posts (usually make the longest edge 1200pixels).

    Then use the BB code link and just copy the IMG tags and what inside them.

    Iíve used imgur for some time and itís great, so that would be my suggestion.

    I agree that the fact that Tapatalk removes all punctuation from posts is REALLY irritating.

    Is there a special VIP version that includes punctuation?

    I canít find a switch in the settings that says please butcher my posts so I appear to be semi literate - but Iíve obviously clicked it

    I don't understand - your post is evidence that punctuation does work?

    You don't seem to use the apostrophe (') but some kind of inverted accent (`) or high comma?

    Not sure if it has to do with that?

    Used it for years without issues. Far better than photobucket and thus far free.

    I canít see yours either. Doubt you can see mine too.

    Think it might be an iPhone issue - uses a different character as Raffe suggested.

    I am on Android, so you might be onto something.

    Interesting that if I go to Web View (still on iPhone) I can see them.

    Well I use an iPhone and Tapatalk removes all punctuation as far as I can see. Itís really annoying. Note that Iíve written Itís correctly in the previous sentence but once I hit reply I wonít see the apostrophe.

    Yep Iím on iPhone too so think you are definitely onto something with the character set. Wonder if itís ever been reported as a bug - shouldnít be hard to fix

    Weirdly I use Tapatalk to access WUS and no issues with punctuation there. Only on TZ!

    There is a sticky thread on this topic (posting pictures). Looks like it needs some up to date posts though!
