It seems the uploader is not compatable with mobile. I can not upload the photos that I take with my phone and it says unable to complete request due to low memory.

I've just tested and was able to upload a picture to my gallery.
Make sure that your photo is no larger than 2048MB. If you still have problems, close any other running programs.

I have done everything that is mentioned in the how to but no pictures are uploaded.  Does this feature still work?

How do you add a "box" to the photo file, to fool the computer?
What kind of box is it? Where do you find the box?

Kelly, after you have uploaded your photo, the sysstem shows your photo to you. It then also gives you a bunch of links below the photo.

You want to copy the one that says BBC embed code. It is a code in square brackets with smg id=xxx inside.
You then go to the place on the forum that you want to post your photo. You then reply to the post and paste in your smg code
