    I don't think it worked. Take one Aspirin and try again tomorrow--

    It didn't work. I use a third party image host (Flickr) that allows me to use images on any forum. I have 'em organized in 'ablums'. When I upload a yuuge image, Flickr automagically creates smaller versions down to 75x75 pixels. Then, I select an image, copy the URL to the Windoughs clipboard, and pasted it into the IMG tags...
    ...that displays this 150x150 pixel image:

    If I want to, I can "nest" a small thumbnail image (or text) between URL tags, and link to a yuuge image (or anything else)...
    (click for yuuge image) :)

    Thanks gents

    The issue is my crummy cell phone camera insists on taking 12M pixel images. That's too big for QRZ upload, and just rude for emailing... especially to a list...

    I can't find an app for Android that will crop / reduce / rotate photos.

    Just reduce the camera resolution on your Android, No additional app required. ;)

    ... and set the rotation and zoom before taking the photo.

    Great idea. Maybe I'm too dumb to figure out this camera app. It appears to offer only "widescreen" 16MP and "standard" 21MP.

    I've tried a half dozen camera apps from the Android store, all were unsatisfactory on several ways, even the $$$ apps.

    Thanks Bryan. Yeah, and I take my time with lighting too. Although not so critical with a pinhole camera, and the built in post process software is amazing to me!

    Taking a picture of my friend, looking in to th the sun, face in shadow, I just "know" that can't possibly work. But it does! Amazing.

    On the other hand, this app offers no way to turn off all that. So yesterday's photos of the red sun through the smoke from Paradise Camp Fire were washed out, disappointing, not representative...
