I have a Galaxy S10 and it has a resize feature in "gallery".  However, i find when i post a pic from my phone, it comes out 90° from the way its taken.  Even if i rotate it first, it still posts sidways.

Well that part worked. That was posting a photo that I already had in the photo folder of my laptop.
Next I have to work out how to get photos from my cell phone onto the laptop.
I tried taking a photo from my cell phone gallery and putting it onto the forum using the forum that I could bring up on the cell phone internet. It didn't work and what it did try was unbelievably slow. Will try again. Seems it would be better to put cell phone photos onto the lap top photo folder.
At least a little progress has been made but not there yet..

Have a look at the photo quality setting you have your phone set to. The higher the quality it's set to, the higher the file size will be.
I send all my phone pics to my laptop and use "Snipping Tool" in Windows 7 and above to resize before posting.

Email is how I send my cell phone pics to my laptop. This way it retains the quality/resolution of the original image. However, if I'm sending a lot of pictures, I use a different method.......but, that's opening a more complicated can of worms.

It worked, but after texting the photo to myself it was Still 2.1Mb (too big) but my iPhone had an option to resize the image smaller before I posted it, so it worked for me.

That's what I do too. And if I need to transfer a bunch of them, the usb to the phone.

Glad you guys are making progress Hugh and Charlie.

Well, yeah. That's how I do it. And I resize in the process with the snipping tool. EZ PZ.

EZ PZ is just doing everything on the phone. It takes me about 10sec to load a pic onto a post......from anywhere I have data/wifi access.

The camera on my phone produces high quality pictures and video, but the screen is too small for my impaired vision to deal with, so I transfer the pics to my main computer with a USB cable and process them utilizing my enhanced twenty-seven inch screen.  I have several software programs that will resize, but the easiest way for me is to take a screen shot with the snipping tool.  :)

Lit photo here.
Gave up on hosting sites after loosing 1500 pics on "webshots" then another massive amount on "Photo-bucket" held for ransom. Last attempt was "imgur" but on a phone it's app blows.
 Just use Lit photo to resize to 30% and attach direct here.

All due respect my young friend but there is nothing EZ PZ about using them teeny tiny keys on a cell for for a half blind, sausage fingered guy like me....
I actually have a blue tooth keyboard on my desk for texting at my co workers at work.

Not with Lit!
These are actual screenshots from my phone with the Lit app.
