Perhaps I'm just ignorant on how the site works, but I'm not sure on how to upload photo's from my PC, the Image link appears to want photo's with a web address ? I'm going to take a wild guess that maybe its set up to transfer photo's from Facebook or other social media. I do not subscribe to Facebook or any other social media and have no plans to do so.
So my question is: how do I upload photo's from my photo section on my PC using Windows 10? Most sites I'm on have a search my computer set up so that I can upload from my PC!
ok downloaded the PIP , but got lost at the auto configuration step for profile, tried username but it didn't accomplish anything. I'm sure its simple, but not when you don't know what the software wants !
Simple my behind, the Monte Carlo forum is far easier ! This is a PIA, Ok I got a couple steps further, but it doesn't access photo's that are uploaded from my phone, it wants pictures, which would be doable with my old phone. I cannot get it to access photo's
Ok I've spent 2 hours trying seven ways from sunday to upload these pics, PIP doesn't access photo's, and I cant seem to transfer the photo's to pictures folder, and I refuse to upload anything to "The Cloud". I guess I'll break out my antique 5C and take photo's with that so I can get them in the pictures folder. I've had enough for tonight, I'm sure I'm missing something. This separate PIP is so "old school" from back in the days where each website had their own photo software. Arrgh
When I now have done what you said, I click on PIP and none of the places PIP wants me to access is Windows 10 photo's, it does ask me to go to pictures which my 5C will upload to. But my 5 SE and 8 upload to windows 10 photo's so the path is not the same ! And I can't seem to transfer the pics from Photo's to pictures!

Not necessarily, since you want to take that attitude about it mr. know it all, hopefully someone else will show up in the next couple days and know what instruction step is missing ! I give you credit because you got me 2 steps further than where I was before, but now you are obviously as lost on it as I am, so fine I'm on my own ! I don't know what I don't know and I fully admit that, I explained what I tried to do on your instructions and tried other avenues on my own and they didn't work!

From my understanding of your posts, Windows 10 "Photos" is a proprietary Microsoft photograph sharing and cloud management application.
As a test, why don't you try uploading ANY jpeg image (below 1024x768 and respecting file size limitation) that is accessible from the PIP file open dialog. This can be from the "Pictures" directory, or any other directory that resides on your C:\ drive. Then post said test image in this thread.
If you can do that, then you'll know that you and how you are using PIP is correct.
Why would PIP be able to peek into the innards of the Photos app? Transferring jpegs from Photos to Pictures (or some other accessible directory) is a separate problem to be tackled.

Sadly PIP&indeed PFF is not a tellingbone friendly way to post pics/text. Your frustration maybe comes from knowing how very simple it is on other forums.
On the other hand, it always acts as a great deterrent to posting drivel as it's not worth the effort. Though some may claim I have just managed fine. Good luck... I am now unable to read what I'm typing as it has combined with the text below the text box!!!!
Ok Kewl Blue I did what you said edited the posts, and will in addition apologize to Patrick, I was not angry with him, just the fact that I couldn't seem to post my photo's! It had been a long day and a lot of work loading and unloading a car that doesn't run in current condition. It probably didn't help any that I was three drinks of Fireball along.
1. PIP doesn't always tell you the file is past size limitations, but once I tried a pic big enough it finally started doing it.
2. Win 10 photo's is an App, but unknown to me, the photo's go into Pictures as well, was going into a folder in pictures, and since the folder was closed and not showing the pics like the other folders, I didn't realize it was there.
3. I had to resize all the pics in pixel mode, and since this is something I have never had to do before, I had to figure out how to do it. Right click pic, Edit , Resize, Pixel, Type 768 in the top box and the bottom box automatically changes to 1024. You have to do it for each and every pic, if you keep seeing the number 100, then you have simply forgot to change it to Pixel. Pixel is not the default in the resize mode.
Update , I found that , that didn't always work either, on several photo's I had to go into the resize again. and put 768 in the bottom box and 564 would show up in the top box, I hope admin can Re Channel my frustration and results into an instruction page !
I suspect you are using a form of the old Microsoft 'Paint' program that comes with the operating system. It is buggy and often does not do what you have asked it to do. The 2 boxes with the pixel numbers are connected to maintain the aspect ratio of the picture. You can get properties of the picture after you save it and find out if it is good. Overall file size should easily be under 300 K in about every picture if your horizontal pixel count is somewhere under 1024.

That happens when the picture has the portrait rather than landscape orientation.

Doing what you've managed to do seems like basic computer literacy / problem solving skills; I think it's a stretch to expect Cliff to handle that...

And if you still want PIP to work... Most time you have to "Run as Admin" because Windows UAC etc won't let it to update the server data each time you start it. Windows doesn't give a warning, error, etc. when it happens. Not even in "hidden" system logs that I've seen.
Ok this has nothing to do with the site: I now have an iPhone 8 and when I try to upload the photo's to win 10 , I've found I can only do a few at a time because it only uploads as 2 sec video's and I doubt I can post these. I so far have not found a way to just upload photo's from iPhone 8. Grrr
Now you can upload directly from a phone and use a Mac as well. Cliff just changed everything, PIP no longer required. The only thing I noticed was you have to wait a bit untill you get told your photo got uploaded. With my Mac I have to let all my pics load up in Photos then highlight the thumbnail then click on "choose". 45 seconds or so and it is uploaded. I have not tried my phone yet.
