Need help identifying a species of Lumber

Need help identifying a species of Lumber however I can't figure out how to add photos from my phone. Can anyone help?

Do you have an Android phone? If so, then you can save the file to Google Photos (they may already be stored there, automatically).  If so, then on Google Photos, you can select "Share"/"Get sharable link", and it will give you a link you can copy/paste to this forum.

Another way that does not depend on Google is to start a comment, and immediately try the icon for photos. It will let you browse to select a photo on your phone, and upload it to your library (not post directly into the comment).

Then, after some time, the screen returns control to you (sometimes I have to refresh, which then wipes out anything I have typed. That is why I upload the image first, so I don't have to re-type).

Then, once you get the chance, select the photo icon again, and this time select 'Library', instead of 'Upload'. Any images you have uploaded are there, in the library. No chance to preview, just select the one you want (hope you remember the name), and then it will get to the next screen,asking about size. Always select 'Original', as some of the other options don't really display the image.

NOTE: The two-step process. First upload the image, then next time you select the image option, select Library.

grumpybear like rgarrison1 says for loading pic using the Norwood comment section whereas he sometimes pushes the refresh button and looses everything he is typing, What I do is, push the back arrow on screen it will allow you get back to the libuary without losing what ever youv'e typed experiment with it and you will find out what works for you.


  • push media  browse pick your pic in your computer and submit
  • push back arrow then libuary usualy the first pic is the one you just put there and push submit then orginal
  • now submit and yoou'll see your pic

All I am still having issues.  After uploading photos to the library there is only a box with the photo name and an X.  Then after clicking submit nothing happens.

I have also tried to make the photos sharable through google so I could copy and paste the link and NADA.  The photos have been resized. Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

You may have better luck using the Google link, if you have an Android phone or Google account (the account is free).

Here is a detailed description of how to post photos.  If that doesn't work, you can send it to me in a personal message through this forum & I'll see what I can do with it.
