This is only a test.
No doubt you're aware that a photo was posted. What you may not be aware of is that it was filled with EXIF data (nothing too personal, like GPS coordinates, that I noticed). I did see this information on your phone's model, though:
Camera Model Name : LG-LG231C
That's probably moot at this point by now, but you may be able to use it to search for a more streamlined procedure or helpful phone accessories.
Another problem with mobile derived pics is to get them rotated the right way round. Are there any tips for that?
Or could TDF manage any image processing to allow uploaded pics to be rotated?
I seem to recall posting information on this in a couple of threads recently, but I could find only one of these posts:viewtopic.php?p=1051652#p1051652
The sort of rotation you want should
be done automatically by browsers, but it looks like the popular ones aren't doing so when the images are embedded in forum thread pages -- but they do if you click the image to view it in isolation. In theory, the forum software could do some post-processing on uploaded images, but I don't know how practical that would be with the phpBB software this forum uses. In practice, forum management seems reluctant to tackle it even for stripping GPS metadata from photos, for both technical and legal reasons:viewtopic.php?p=1053955#p1053955
