Good morning everyone, we've had a great poll idea from Imaaan to explore why more members don't post food photo's.
We love photo's of each others food and meals on HE and have a very eclectic membership with differing food needs and choices.
What everyone has to realise is we all posted our first photo once and now enjoy sharing recipes and ideas with one another as we want to encourage/inspire all members to eat well for them and their needs.
As for comparing our meals to others we have to be careful with this as we take so many things for granted and often see others meals as more interesting than ours. I have felt this recently with some quinoa and buckwheat porridge photo's that I've posted because compared to Zest my bowls of porridge looked more like a bowl of slop and her hubby would be worried if he was presented with a bowl of my porridge. But this is exactly the reason that we should share our photo's of meals as we have so many choices and there are so many variations and a photo shows this diversity.
So please say what would encourage you to post photo's of your meals and we will see if we can put a poll together and explore this further and most importantly encourage you our members to participate as you the members are the community. We your admin team merely try to guide the community in a positive and wholesome way as we all have a common interest in healthy eating.
One of the most stunning food photo's that I've seen posted on a community was of a large strawberry in the palm of the members had and it was wow. Which shows how less can be better. 🍓
And thank you Imaaan for this great idea.
Hello, I think that's a brilliant idea, would certainly concentrate my mind & encourage me to be a bit less idle & more adventurous.
Problem though as I have absolutely no idea how to put a photo on here. L
Hi Lavender54 then here's how to post a photo please see the screen shot, you type the title of your post in the header box then you write the script about your post then you have 2 smaller boxes one that says Photo click this hox and then you can download a photo from. your photo library and the box beneath this is to chose from one of our Topics.
I hope that this helps and I'd love to see your photo's of food.
Thank you very much. I use a laptop so can transfer from my phone.
I'll give it a go presently. L
Sorry Jerry, not having much luck here.I transfer phone photos to Drive, so can't access them with that icon, which only goes to files, downloads etc.
I insert photos from Drive into emails.
Apologies, am rather cloth headed with tech. L
Hi Lavender54 to make a post with my mobile this is the screen shot:
And when you click the photo box you have choices:
Hi lavender54, are you trying to post a photo on a phone, tablet or computer?
I think it should be the same for all, but this is an image from my phone.
You attach a photo by clicking this icon, browse to where the image is stored, select it. It'll come up with a window asking you to add a description of your image, so do that, and hit OK, and you image should appear.
Thanks Cooper and this is how to post a photo in a reply Lavender54 so we don't confuse you.
Many thanks. I'll start experimenting in a mo'. L
