Feel free to ask for help or test your images in here. I will try and help you out if you have any issues and upload some pics of how it looks for me when I upload for my phone!




Posts from the artwork thread here:



I have been wanting a Ponysona and, with my daughter’s help, FINALLY came up with one!
Poet Rose is an alicorn who is naturally quiet and introverted, but has learned over time to become more sociable. Her energy comes from the natural world—especially flowers—and time alone painting word pictures (poems!). Her powers are creativity, empathy, and spirituality. Though often entangled with self-doubt, she breaks free and flies when she indulges her creativity or succeeds in helping someone else. She has a big heart, which gives her the power to heal and strengthen others, but also makes her fragile—easily hurt and saddened. She has learned to protect her heart, but paid some of her power to acquire the protection. She can be adventurous and loves to visit new places, try new foods or activities, and learn. She enjoys reading, long walks, and relaxed time with her family.
My daughter drew Poet Rose for me, and she appears as my avatar. I can’t seem to attach a picture here, though.
if you click the little square with the mountain on it above where you type your message, between the chainlink and the smilyface, you can drag a picture file onto the little square that pops down and voila!

Thank you! I will try from my computer, as there does not seem to be a way to do it from my iPad.

I'm on another site that uses the same software as here and I've been able to upload images from my iPad many times. However, it seems it's set so that's not an option at all here. It looks like you can only post images from external sites.

My kindle is so old that it won't even allow access to most desktop sites anymore. I couldn't figure out how to use the mountain icon to load a picture.
Ok,sorry to completely sidetrack this post, but let's see if we can't figure this out!

Click the little mountain symbol and then you click where it says DROP HERE (or click here) and it should open your phone's gallery.
That's how mobile upload works for me anyways.

If the picture doesn't appear after you are able to choose a file it is because the image file is too large and you need to resize it. A trick for doing that is just simply doing a screenshot when you have the image open on your phone and then you can either upload the whole thing or edit that screenshot so you cut the image to fit and then you don't get the clock and notifications and what have you on the top :)

I hope any of this makes sense, I will definitely try and help the best I can, but probably in a different thread than this one. Feel free to let me know or PM me!

It doesn't say drop here or click here for me. Just a spot to place text and an "insert" button to finalize.

It’s a known bug that Jewel was going to look into when she has the opportunity. ;)

I can upload fine here. I don't know if you saw the PM I sent you, but the issue seems to only be on the board MLP Artwork.
the same image? i will check your pm a little later, kids are being loud

yes i saw that whenever it happened @Skybreeze i thought we could test it in here to see what's wrong.

So what device and browser are you guys on?

Correct. I’ll post the screenshot I PMed you:

I get the same screen. Although, in this thread, i have the "attach files" option at the bottom. I use silk browser mostly, but do have a dying device and will be using safari or Firefox once I can access a device that supports them.

Sorry to be so late to respond! Home schooling and other duties have kept me busy. Anyway, I get the same screen as the others (Tak, PinkiePie97), regardless of whether I use my phone, my iPad, or even my desktop computer. This didn't used to be a problem; in the past, I got the same screen as you did, @cannibalcow , but both here and in the Ponysona thread I see only the link prompt when I click on the mountain picture icon.
