    You can't upload pictures from your phone?

    No. I've tried several times as I sometimes enjoy walking through parks and taking photos and each time I'd try to hook the phone up to my desktop computer, it wouldn't recognize the phone or something whereas if I used our digital camera, things work fine.

    Maybe cause my smartphone is over a decade old... Heck, the thing doesn't even update Google for some reason anymore. Says my phone is too dated basically. LOL

    Good ol' planned obsolescence. Could try downloading something like imgur, uploading the pics there, and then posting the links.

    You also might be able to directly “upload a file” into this thread from your phone, and then a mod could submit it as a news item or whatever.

    At least for Wrecks. Although I’m sure the TFW would love to see your nature walks. :)

    9B327AF2-29DE-4C56-873C-89020D53BD30.jpeg It was a pretty decent week for vintage gets. Dead mint G1 Bumblejumper, parts upgrade for Diaclone Bluestreak, and a very-near mint GoBots Ace (tough to find in this condition.)

    Also…. Scorponok is back in stock at GameStop to ship immediately.

    Oooh, I'll share too!

    Added another SEALED G1 Cosmos to the collection, and finally picked up a Cybertron Megatron -- both courtesy of @ServO at Hot Comics. :)  20210719_122603.jpg 20210719_143359.jpg 20210719_170446.jpg

    There an 'upload a file' button next to 'post reply' that would work. It would just grab the img from your phone itself.

    By default, a lot of android phones will go into a charging only mode when you first plug USB on them into a computer. You have to drag down the notification bar to see the notification where it says what mode you are in and if you go into it I think it will give you the option to go into a different mode that allows data transfer. I think the usual one you want is MTP mode where it will let you see the file listing on the phone.

    Even easier is I just use the Google Photos app. It will automatically backup your camera photos so they appear in photos.google.com. It doesn't save in raw format, but slightly compressed, but plenty good enough to post places like here. If you do want the actual original photo files you'll still want to copy them off the phone using file transfer ability above.

    I'll be damned, Target actually hit one of their PO dates?

    Makes me a little more confident my 8/1 Slug PO will hold.

    July 7 was Target's original Ark preorder date, per my April 9 order confirmation email. This has been backordered three times.
