What I have learned is the following:

1. Turn the phone sideways and take a landscape photo. Otherwise, the forum will automatically turn your photo on it’s side.
2. Since I don’t have any app to resize the photos to get them under the limit, I take a medium shot (not too close to the subject, but not too far). I then use my iPhone’s Edit screen to crop the photo. This discards all of the periphery, resulting in a shot that’s close enough to provide some detail, but made up of less data (pixels).

Thanks Josh... cropping has been my method... but itís crop try, crop try, crop try... backing off to allow more cropping is a good strategy. Thanks!

Lightbulb Re: iPhone photos... some post, some donít...??

Tried texting it to myself... read an IOS forum that said mailing or texting the photo to yourself is a good way resize it... testing here. Ok FAIL! texting did not change the size...

Ok!! Looks like emailing it to myself and choosing ďlargeĒ photo did the trick!

If you are using an iPhone with an Apple computer you can use Preview to resize photos. Photos will sync into Photos app. Export pics from Photos, open with Preview/tools/adjust size.

I need to figure that out... I pretty much just work off the iPhone.

You found the secret I would have used. I also send them to myself from the images on my computer to achieve the same result.
