Right now I?m using an iPad (I?ve used several over the years and this one is a new one we are still trying to figure out if it is working properly since it?s under warranty) and a Laptop. The ipad I use for things like Bakery Story since it?s not compatible with Microsoft Windows.
I use whatever app comes installed along with paying extra for iCloud storage space since I keep running out of space with all of the updates we have to do & not being able to get rid of apps installed. They keep trying to reinstall on new devices we get. Some of them are Storm 8 apps that I thought didn?t exist anymore.
This time it may work. I tried it again and it says pending. It seems like when I try to crop the pictures it just blows the parts I cropped out up to like the size of the screen of the iPad.
Thank you very much for all of the help
Thought I would see if since I got it to upload to Facebook to see if I could get the code or link from there.
It had options to Share, Copy, Save The Picture. Which it’s already saved to my iPad in order to upload it to anywhere. If I hit Share, it just Shares it on the Facebook Newsfeed or to other friends of mine on Facebook

Reason: Trying to edit the picture
Can you try doing the following:

3. Choose ?Upload from URL?
4. Paste the link in the URL box and make sure ?Retrieve remote file and reference locally? is selected
Whenever I have an issue with uploading a picture, this usually works as a fix. It will save the picture to the forums servers, so no need to worry about the photo hosting website going out of business.
Trying this again. I?m still going around in circles trying to find something to use a photo editing app or site that works properly from what I already have installed & have asked Apple for support many times. The problem is if I try to use what is not on my device or something Apple created they wont help with anything you have questions about. They consider it a 3rd party website or apps. Apple even does screen share or remote access to help out so you don?t have to bring the iPad in for service. They can see functions you are doing, walk you through certain things if you don?t understand. If they determine it?s broken & under warranty they send a new device. Same with HP or any other device, they help with those things.
Yes, I?ve lost millions of files and photos over the years when the business leaves the photos or links to that photo no longer function properly because it?s gone or it also puts other odd things instead of the image such as a certain amount of views the photo has got and it shows a weird thing in place of it.
I still don?t know why it seems to function when I send the same photo through email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Is the only reason I wonder if it?s to do with my account on here.
It looks like it maybe functioning for now since it is in the attachment section. What is the easiest way to move it to Bakery Story forum since I would guess it is now on the server?

If I can?t get in my account or something else happens to the account is the other problem I keep running into over the years.
You lose access to the stuff.
I don't have 'Manage Attachments' to upload a picture of my bakery.
Try clicking on the ?Go Advanced? button (right next to the Quick Reply button) and then scrolling down to the ?Additional Options? section. You can get to the manage attachments popup from here.
