        When I click on the upload button nothing happens on my phone or my laptop. I am able to copy and paste, I can also add a link. just can't upload photos. I've tried it in the default mode and the v Vbulliten mode and still nothing.

            Is it possible that you are trying to upload images that are too large? Try reducing the size to 600 X 600 pixels.

                I. Haven't been able to get that far into the process. Nothing happens when I click the upload button. I'm sure it's a setting on my end, I'll keep playing with it.

                  That sounds like some kind of browser issue. Have you tried using a different browser (e.g. Firefox)?

                        You can also upload pictures from Photobucket if you have an account and they are nice pictures to view on the forums, like this.

                            I copy and paste from FB and it works great, I can also add a link and it also works great, I just can't use the upload feature. It is not that big of a deal, If I can't get it after a couple more tries, I can work around it.

                              If you have an account and you have photos in your albums you can click the gear on a picture and it will bring up a box and you then click share which then brings up another box with 3 tabs and you click the links tab which then gives you 4 boxes. You want to click the bottom ING code box which is good for forums. Once you click that box the picture is copied and then you simply right click and paste in the post you are making. Good luck.

                                I have seen several people having difficulty, in resizing a photo to attach to their post.

                                This site I have used for several years...it is very simple to resize your photo.

                                Some of you have reported getting errors when attempting to upload graphics (avatars, attachments, etc.). I have reported this to vBulletin and they are working on a solution.

                                I have read the instructions on this forum for posting photos but I sure can't. I always get an error. I am using an iPad and the photos are likely too big. But can't find anything stating max photo size....
