    Select multiple images

    testing....

    Added a new modification that allows multiple images to be selected when using the "insert image"

    To select multiple images on MAC:
    Hold down the "command key" and then click on the images you want to insert.

    Bless you!

    I see it also works on the phone.

    Speaking of uploading from the phone, something changed in the last month or so. Actually, it reverted to the way it was a year or so ago.

    In the summer and fall and even into December, when I uploaded a photo from my phone, the little pop-up window would be in the center of the screen and of a pretty good size. Lately, (and a year ago) the pop up window is tiny, and sometimes it's not even visible on my phone screen. I have to zoom out of the window I was typing in to see it and it's very, very small. This problem went away for a while, where the size of the pop window was large and stayed the same size if you zoomed in or out on the background window.

    I'm not sure if what I'm saying is understandable at all or just confusing! Sorry about that.

    Is this just for iOS?

    No, works on a Mac, must work the same way on a PC with a CTL key instead of a CMD key.

    This does not work on a PC using the CTRL key. The above two images are from two attempts to upload three images. Only the final image uploaded.

    So you need a keyboard

    No, works on iOS -- allows multiple selection. I don't follow Kevin's comments -- I see two images, but he said that only the last one loaded.

    No- I have a keyboard for my iPad. I'll see if it works.

    I tried it twice. The first attempt with three images resulted in the first image, the last of the three. The second attempt with three images resulted in the second image, again the last of the three.

    The above three images were loaded using an iPad Pro with the iPad Pro keyboard, which has a Command key.

    The above three images were loaded using an iPad Pro and no keyboard. I selected three images before clicking on Done.

    I was able to post 2 images from my iPad without the keyboard. The images appeared with a little box which I checked off and 2 photos were produced. They were reversed but it's the first time.

    Can you go step by step of this process on a Mac? Can you pick up photos directly from iPhoto? I'm a slow learner.

    No to the iPhoto -- they must be exported to a folder or the desktop. Then select multiple using the command key (hold and click on the ones you want.).

    Re: Select multiple images

    Okay, so I think I can do that...easy enough, but when I did a trial run, the pics are too big. I can't seem to find a post on how to resize them. If they're on my desktop is there a way to do that (on a macbook pro)? I suspect I do the resizing in Preview? I know somewhere on this forum tells me what the sizes should be, but I can't find it!

    Thanks in advance.

    Bev,

    Didyou export them from Photo? If so choose a smaller size. If not, use Preview to downsize. Usually under 1MB will be OK.
