    "Upload a file" is really not the best way to attach anything but a PDF or similar "file" - not an image - to your posts.

    By the way, using a mobile phone browser to attach a file from the phone's Gallery or Camera is going to result in the "upload a file" kind of image display. There's no way around that because there is no desktop to drag and drop from.

    How would you upload a photo on you android phone gallery without using upload a file?

    As I said, that's the only way to do it on a mobile phone browser.

    I've been on a few internet forums, and I'm also somewhat of a tech luddite.

    Off a laptop, this place is by far the easiest site I've ever put up an image. I checked the help thread first and couldn't believe how easy it was to drag and drop when I tried it.

    But now that I've said that, I'll probably curse myself and do something stupid next time I post a photo............
