    If any one knows how to post pictures on the Forum from your smart phone, will you please write up an easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial that we can pin at the top of this section?

    I just did it. I just touched upload a file, then choose a file, then find your picture in the appropriate folder and select it. For me (Galaxy S3), the pictures are usually in a file called DCOM or camera.

    Just a note on taking a video - if you hold your phone horizontally instead of vertically, you get a better result.

    You can't upload videos here. You upload them to Youtube, Vimeo etc. then post the links to the videos here.
