    can't e-mail pics from tablet? derp

    I know, I'm a fossil & way behind everyone...sorry. I don't have a cell, so last Christmas my wifie got me a "Tablet" for taking pics & e-mailing things. About all I can do is surf the web & spout b/s, I know, I know. I still haven't figured out a ton of stuff because I'm stuck back in analog electronics... So please bear w/me here; I don't have a "Smartphone" yet.

    As some wanted pics of things I've recently done here/purchased/etc., I barely learned how to operate the camera on my tablet. I've tried e-mailing to myself (to get "attachments" {pics}), so I can get them here on this pc, but no dice. I get "errors" every time of one sort or another. The dang Tablet refuses to let me send e-mail pics to myself? Huh???

    I want them to post ZRX stuff here (new purchases.) But until I get this figured out, I'm stuck between a rock & a hard place. (I know, bonehead. I agree.) The really weird thing is I CAN send them to myself & view on the tablet, just NOT the pc. I've even gone to the length of getting multiple e-mal addresses to get this accomplished. NOT. I'm bewildered & astonished. It can't be this hard!
    Can anyone help? I'm an idiot...

    Boil all that down to a simple statement explaining what you're trying to do.

    Save pics that have been posted on the message board and pass them along to someone else?

    I'm trying to take pics of various things here on the Tablet, & post them to this & other "Rider Websites." That's it.

    I have done this w/families help on THEIR cells, just NOT my tablet.

    I LOVE these great step-by-step w/pics threads/posts, & would like to do a few IF I can...


    That's the story...Thank YOU!

    Ahhh. Got it.


    You didn't mention what tablet you're using, but most phones/tablets require a special message board interface like "Tapatalk" that allows you to post photos. You would need to download Tapatalk to your tablet, then use Tapatalk to make your posts and add photos from your tablet.

    Thanks; was just on website looking around. Will investigate...

    Had one of them photo storage places years ago, but they went belly-up w/virtually no warning & I lost HUNDREDS of photographs when I -thought- I was moving to all electronic storage (including many priceless kid/family pics.)

    So I'm going to look hard at that one & others this time...

    There are many folks here that use Tapatalk. I DON'T!!! So I have no first hand knowledge of the app. Mine was just a search to try and find general info for you to use.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Regarding photo storage, best to store them on your own memory devices (storage drives, etc.). I guess now everyone relies on "The Cloud", but that's still 3rd part so...

    Tapatalk is the best for smartphone OS devices. You can post pics w/o editing them to make them smaller. Its in the google play store.

    What OS is your tablet running OP? Windows? Mac?, Android? IoS? I don't own an Apple/Mac so can't help you if your tablet is one of those

    It's an old Samsung S3 w/"Android" (unknown version.)

    I lost tons of stuff previously when HDD's/CD's/& "Cloud" has failed. I'm really skeptical these days of trusting anyone. Recommendations would be nice, thanks !

    Re: can't e-mail pics from tablet? derp

    ok, sometime yesterday before my "seizure/event," I managed to get 2-3 pics across. I think it might be a thing of TOOMUCH (pic size) trying to transmit at one time?

    I resized my pics down from "humongous" to a more realistic 2048x1024 or something more reasonable. Got 4 across = here's 2 (test)

    Ok, I see size is STILL too big, so I will try re-sizing again.

    Sorry of that 1st shocker....now if I haven't broken your display....

    Great. Yeah, that first size was too big. Something like 1200x800 is prolly big enough and < 1MB in size as well and u should be good.

    thank you folks for suggestions/advice...

    It appears transferring 30 large pics don't work, but 3-4 are ok once resized. I put a few more here: http://www.zrxoa.org/forums/showthre...95#post4741395
