unable to post pics

I am currently unable to post pics and am wondering if anyone has any ideas. Any help would be appreciated. When I click on the paperclip icon nothing happens.

It seems to be ok, do you have a pop up blocker on?

While we are on picture uploading, pictures that I do upload come out sideways or upside down. They were uploaded from an iPhone, if that matters. Is there an edit tool I'm missing somewhere to correct this? Yes I am one the last people on the planet that does not live and breathe the internet, this site and the Ford trucks Enthusiasts forums are my first ever, so you may have to dummy it down for me. Thanks!

Hey there

No, you're not missing any tool on the site. Most pictures these days do come straight off our phones. The phone's software embeds some coding in to each image when it is taken. This code tells the phone which way is 'up' and displays it correctly for you. Unfortunately, that coding cannot be read by most forum software and so the pictures appear whichever way they were taken with the phone.

There are some tips to get the 'correct' orientation for your photos on your phone.
Android users take photos with the HOME button to the RIGHT.
Apple users take photos with the VOLUME button DOWN.

This is the 'correct' orientation for pictures on your phone. The developers base this off of a DSLR camera that takes photos in landscape mode as a default. So when you take a picture with your phone in portrait view, it's like turning the DSLR camera to the side to take a portrait photo.

You can also open your pictures in an editor on your computer and manually rotate them. If you use an editor on your phone, you may need to crop off a couple pixels, or save a new name so that a change is registered.

You can also use photo hosts like Photobucket, etc, that have the software needed to read the coding on the images from the phones.

May be because of less post count.
