Thanks CTC, I read this as.......

A lot of practice. A hell of a lot of patience and a good photographer.

Hey Bill...I take them with my phone, and then email them to my home based computer address..I can see if they are any good and pop them into 'my pictures' file. Resized 'small' so as not to overload the Forum MB constraints...then, doing a post, click attachments, add pictures...you can add more under the edit function if you wish...its just a bit of practice to see what works for you and your system...

I take pictures on my iPhone and then iCloud transfers them to my mac and then I use resizeimage.net to make the picture smaller and then I upload

I rarely take pictures when I hunt, because my phone has a problem where it sometimes turns off when you use the camera. Unfortunately, you need a power source to wake it up again and I'm too lazy to bring a power pack and cable along so I just take pictures at home.

I turned location services off for my phone camera

email the pics to myself to reduce the size and save back to phone

Then post them.

I have a magnify app too I use sometimes
