I'm going to start a new thread and include some pics and I want to try use the "new" picture add on's for posts. I'm not a fan of it, but people can't see the whole pics I post when I use a photo host site while using their phone, so I'll try it. The new option stinks IMO and doesn't do a good job of showing pictures, but I'll give it a shot.

So, this is a test, this is only a test...

A couple of picture questions: 1) How do I rotate a picture if it's not the first picture in a post? 2) Is it possible to put the pictures in specific places in a post in relation to the words that are typed in the post? For example, can I type a paragraph, put in a picture below that paragraph, then type another paragraph below that and put in another picture at the bottom of the post? It's not very intuitive IMO...

I can't answer your questions, but that's a nice smallmouth !

Ha thanks drycreek! Anyone know the answers to my questions above about pictures? So far I've found the current "solution" to pictures clunky and not very user-friendly. To post one pic is easy, but after that it's cumbersome as heck and does goofy things when I try to change anything or edit it.

Scoot I've never figured out the "rotate picture" mystery on pics hosted here. The rotation will display differently, based on which device you use to browse this site.

An example is on your Antelope thread, in the post with 4 pics of blinds....on my PC all pics are rotated correctly. But on an iPhone, the first pic is sideways and the next 3 are upright. But rotate the phone to landscape position and all pics are correctly rotated. This must be some type of flaw in the way bowsite handles the images, and I don't know of anything you can do about it until they change that.

But I do know the secret to viewing a "whole pic" on your phone, in the case of 3rd-party-hosted pics. Just touch and hold on the pic until it resizes to fit the screen. At least it works that way on an iPhone.

Might be that "Vikings" hat screwing things up ;-)

I'm sure brotsky would concur!

Thanks sticksender- good info. This is yet another example of why the picture "solution" on bowsite is not good. The way pictures have been handled here in the past has driven away some bowsite's very best users. Unfortunately, it continues to be pretty crappy. I love bowsite and there are some really great and knowledgeable people here, but the picture piece of it leaves a lot to be desired.

t-roy, I'm ignoring you! :)

Definitely the Vikings hat t-roy! In fact the Vikings are a lot like Scoot's picture problem. They always start out good and then when things get a little more difficult later in the season it starts going sideways! Ha!

Something is wrong with the second pic. I see two of you holding a fish.

Dirt wallow about 30 yards from a water hole. Not sure about number of characters but you could use the "edit photo caption" dialog to add text pertinent to each picture. I hit submit for the "edit text" dialog then the back key to add to other pics.

I believe iPhones embed a rotation component. Hold the camera "right" and the pics come out right. Home button rh side, volume buttons down and on the left side.

I'll be...You learn something great here everyday! Thanks wapitibob. Pat Garrett, are you listening? ;).

Scoot...I for one love your hat. The "Vikes" are the greatest pre-season team to ever take the field. If they played the Super Bowl the first game of the season, instead of the last, the "Vikes" would be multiple time world champions. A dynasty I'm telling you...

Well... looks like the peanut gallery has chimed in. kota, t-roy, and Brotsky, thank you all for your brilliant insight and wonderful help! Your thoughts on the Vikings are greatly appreciated. Since I have the attention of you experts on the matter, can you please compare and contrast the Vikings with the professional football team from your home states? :)

Look fellas, I was born a MN resident. I love the state of MN in many ways, but our state government is an embarrassment, the professional teams either completely suck or just break your heart in the end, and we have no "Western critters" to chase here (virtually none anyway). Life was so much easier/better when I lived in ND. However, I'm a MN resident again and I'm a homer and don't jump bandwagons, so here I am... Vikings gear and all!

Sidekick, it was caught on a yellow and orange Cowgirl Jr (#9 blades) burned over cabbage. My son caught one soon after on a 9" Suick in dalmatian pattern (white with black spots). His came from a wind blown point.

Scoot, since when were we talking about professional football? I thought we were talking about the Vikings? ha!

So, here's an interesting detail.....

That the Elk picture showed up when I was in "edit mode" but correctly showed my own picture after I was done editing and also for a period of time after. All of this was done on my iphone. That picture doesn't reside on my iphone; I deleted all my pictures a cpl days ago and only have 4 on that device.

Now, those pesky Elk are showing when I use my laptop. With my phone in my hand, my own picture is correctly showing in the above post, on that phone, not that Elk picture. Two different devices, two different pictures...

Des Moines actually was looking to get a pro football team, but decided against it. Their reasoning was that if they were to get one, then Minnesota would probably want one as well ;-)

Scoot, this may ease your pain.....a little. How many Packers fans does it take to change a lightbulb?..........answer is 5.... One to change the lightbulb, and 4 to stand around and talk about how great the OLD lightbulb was!

WapitiBob, thank you for offering information relevant to my actual question. You other clowns, um... (OK, I did chuckle at your joke t-roy. Of course at least the Packers have something to look back on with fond memories. Vikings fans only have bitterness and despair to reflect on.)

Scoot...I'm gonna go with "NO" and "NO". But I'm no techie. Sorry, the Vikings talk got me side tracked. But, I did learn something in this thread! I learned how to hold my iPhone when I take a pic!
