Private message with picture?

I've got it figured out how to post a picture on the forum now, but I would like for someone to show or tell how to send a private message to someone with a picture in it. Thanks

Re: Private message with picture?

You might want to download one of the re-sizing Apps for your iPad. Typically any picture you shoot with an IOS device is HUGE. I mean like 3264 X 2448 pixels. If you're uploading a picture here, its more efficient to use a 640 X 480 format. If you're using an outside hosting service, Id try to keep the images under 1200 wide, but honestly... 800 X 600 works pretty good.

It may be my iPad maybe not... its a iPad4, the one before the Air model. But I found I had problems posting more than one picture per message when using the forum to host pix. I have to dig into that, maybe I was doing something wrong.

If you're sending an image with a PM, just go to "Advanced Editing" and you'll have more image options.

Write you message in an open forum, cut, and paste in PM ?

Re: Private message with picture?

Unfortunately you can't directly attach a image to a PM, as said already you can just copy and paste the link to the image in the PM.
