    Before trying to post on BBC...
    Take your next photo holding your iPhone sideways versus up and down. Now you have that photo. Have this photo pulled up on your phone and holding phone straight up and down, screen shot it making a copy of it. You have to do this. Now you have a screen shot photo. The original won’t work so delete it or whatever you wish. Now the screen shot photo is on your screen. Hit edit and crop it down to only the picture itself. You need to crop out the white or black portions, the time up top, your battery %, etc. You just want the pic itself! Done with this. Seems like a lot but I tried to describe in detail cause lurking these boards I know you’ve had trouble with this

    Now on BBC make your post and let’s say I want that pic after this sentence. Hit return so you are on next line..
    At top of this reply you see a number of items left to right. Go over to the “image” within a square with tree and click it

    see what I did here... there’s that cropped screen shot I’m telling you to do up top.
    Now in that pop up choose file. Then photo library, then the photo you’ve screen shot and edited. Remember the originals aren’t going to work so don’t get confused. Once selected hit the upload file and

    And the Magic happens!!!

    Good Luck!!

    Once posted like above, you can click the images to make them bigger. Most cases they are much bigger but I was cropping down onto very small pics showing you how it works.

    I just email my pictures one at a time to myself and when doing that it asks me about quality, I try medium if it will then post good. If it is still to large I try small. Just have to open your email, save the picture you receive and remember what picture is the reduced size one. Not perfect but gets the job done.

    This is what I use too. I used to use TinyPic, but they no longer have a free version. I keep PostImage open on a separate tab on Chrome browser so it is easy to flip back and forth.
