I have an iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.1.6, and haven't been able to upload any photos from the phone to the forum.

I always get the error message 'Not a valid image.'

Is there an app I need to get to convert them to jpeg format, or is there another way?

Thanks.

well, looks like I'm really photo challenged.

I have an iphone3g [even older than yours]
Go to Photobucket. Not the app though. Use Safari and get there online and use the mobile web version. Once you're there and logged in, do what he said.^

I havn't figured out how to make albums or get fancy with it, but I can post 1 pic at a time and it actually works so I'm happy enough. Lol

Try this, Bill.
Go to photobucket.com from your safari brouser.

You see that little box with the chain looking icon? [3 boxes to the right of the Facebook box] Click on it.

Once you click on that box it should take you to this screen. Copy & paste the 4th line/option down. The 1 at the bottom. Thats the image you've selected. Once you've grabbed it, add it to your normal post on here, giving it space in between the words in your post. [hit return a couple times so it's separated from any other words.]

It should work.

You will need to down load them to you computer first and re-size them. I was having the same problem till I found out the right size of 700 pixels and down load your pictures to MOL. It will make is easier any way.

When I send them from my iphone to Photobucket via email, it asks me if I want to re size them sm/med/lg or original full size.. I pick med.

just go to app store and check Apps that you want.
Will try that, thanks.

As an aside, upgraded to an iPhone 5s. Perhaps uploading will be less frustrating.
