    I have a Nokia Lumina. I haven't had it long, but I absolutely can not get it to post pictures. On my Android, I simply clicked the picture icon and then chose a picture from my phones gallery. Now, when I get to the page to embed the photo it doesn't give me the option to choose a picture, just to enter a URL. So, I uploaded the picture to Photobucket and copied the image URL. No picture. Once I got a pic saying "sorry, this image has been temporarily moved or deleted" and another time a pic with the URL letters and numbers showed up.

    Am I just doing something wrong here? I even tried using the desktop version of the website and the full version editor gave me the option to embed a picture, but I couldn't click it.

    I hope all of that makes sense. I want to be able to share my chickens with everyone again [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if the operating system on the Nokia Lumina is supported for uploading pics, but I'll put in the request to our tech team!

    You'll need iOS 6 or above for image uploading to work.

    I can't even post from my droid phone or tablet. Guess I'll just look for info if it exists when I have issues. I'm new and cannot even introduce myself to the groups only comment on others posts. Pretty useless as it is. Just hope my chickadees do good and maybe I won't need to ask questions. :)

    It worked on my old phone but my Galaxy S-3 won't do it.

    I've figured out that I can post pictures from my Nokia Lumina, cutting and pasting from photo bucket, but its no easy task!

    I've had no problem uploading pictures until now! The last few days I go through the steps all the way to embedding photo and it just doesn't add the photo, I have an iPhone 4. It really stinks because I'm trying to get advice on sexing a chick!:(
