    If you are using a laptop you can click on "Upload a File", then choose file and choose either thumbnail or full image.

    Imgur is a free and easy host for your photos. https://imgur.com/

    You can only post a 1 Megabyte photo here unless you host it elsewhere, and I would not advise posting photos bigger than that anyway. Half a megabyte is plenty for almost every purpose and one third of a megabyte is generally quite acceptable.

    If the default photo on your camera or phone is bigger than 1 Megabyte you need to reduce it. One way to do this is just zoom the picture in close before you click it. On my camera I have to go somewhere around 3 or 4 x taking a photo that's below 1 Megabyte.

    But often I will crop a photo and then email it to myself. When I do this it allows me the option to reduce the size of the photo. I do this because my photo editing app allows a reduction in size only by cropping.

    This puts a reduced copy on my phone and I just dump the email.

    I send the picture to myself via picture messaging. Save the incoming picture and post that one...
