I hadn't thought of that. I always use a PC to post here and I pluck my images from Google Images.

I use Google Images for Covers.
If you select from the results (with size label), you get a small version. You need to click that, then you get the full sized one.

When I find an image I want, I select it. If it's too large, I left-click on the image size in the upper right (1900 x 1068 - see below). That takes me to a page of that image in multiple sizes. I then select one that adheres to MR guidelines.

Try How do I find the pixel size of a photo?

Colleague just showed me an iPad app called Photo Investigator - it appears to show exif and iptc metadata - which includes size in pixies.

The way I look at it, if you want to have control on MR, then you do the work. If you want to take the lazy way out, then give up control. An image you see in the message has already been downloaded from were it came from. So you right click, select to save the image, delete the image, upload as an attachment and be done. Not a problem as I see it.
Most of the images I see posted are screen shots, so the OP can more easily upload to MR while they're composing their post instead of uploading it to some crappy ad infested image host, copying the full size link and putting that into their post.

I usually give the poster notice, either in the thread or via PM, if they don't rectify within a reasonable period then I remove the images, case in point https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=285087

I can't recall anyone ever posting a thumbnail from an external image host, even if the image host used provides thumbnail links. Posting full size images is much the same as typing thread titles in capitals - narcissistic, I change upper case titles to title case.

@theducks - I'm with you - MR thumbnails only, the exception is in PM's where you're forced to use an external host - even then I use a thumbnail.

The forum software should reduce the image size with the ability to click on the image to get the full size.

Thanks. That at least gives me a way to know how large a photo on my iPad is. Now if I only had an app that let me resize to a given proportion the way Photoshop or even Paint does on a pc.

I don't use an iPad, so I'm not sure if which apps work on it, but a search on 'Resize my pictures' in the App Store appears to show several, including at least one free.

The draconian rules make it hard on an iPad/iPhone.

It's trivial to turn an image into a thumbnail. If it's large-ish, why not just thumbnail it?

Use the "Manage Attachments" button to upload your image as an attachment. It will then appear as a a thumbnail. You need to be in the "Advanced" editor to do this.

And it works with either URLs or files on your computer/device.
