    Not a fan of live trip reports but they seem to be a BIG hit on the board.
    So, why not give what the people want and do a live trip report during my Sept trip.

    I would plan to use my Phone to take all pictures and update the thread.

    For those who have done the live trip report and photos with their phone, is TapTalk required?
    I have read a number of issues/concerns with installing it and would rather not have it installed.

    Do you upload the photo directly to this board or to a host server first then provide a link?

    What about video?

    You can bring the board up in your phone's web browser and upload pics and videos pretty easy without having to install TapaTalk. Thought uploading video from your phone could eat up a lot of your phone's data

    I think the board works great from your mobile browser. If you don't want to type the long url in, most browsers have a menu option to "Add to HomeScreen" and it will put up a wonderful graphic icon that @Char1 made for us. I love it.

    Click to expand on that second green box in Scott's post and it's the instructions for uploading a photo. And let me know if you have any problems or questions.

    I see the image becomes a thumbnail.
    How are people getting the image embedded in a reply full size from the phone?

    Is that a picture on your phone or hosted remotely?

    I used the "Upload a file" option.

    I posted that picture using TapaTalk directly from my phone. I don't know how to post an embedded picture from the actual website.

    Select Upload a File below the reply box and choose your photo. Once it's uploaded it will pop up the option for thumbnail or full image. Pick full image and it will display the image imbedded into the post.

    The one in the foreground is a Crepe Myrtle. The two taller ones are gums. I don't know what the one in the middle is, but it gets really yellow in the fall. Some huge pines in the far background.
