Yes, I tried that, but a MAC is so screwy it will not work. I suspect those instructions are for Windows systems.
That is a beautiful photo, beautiful cactus!
Eclipse in a few miners here. I hope it does not kill my cactus or create a horde of zombies.
PS: I am going to attempt to upload photos to my Facebook account. I almost never use it.
A stranger gave me a Silver Cholla a few minutes ago. I will put it in a pot to keep it from spreading.

Is there a way to post photos directly from my iPhone?

Look on your app store for a photo resizer app (there should be plenty of them). Resize your photos to 800×600 and you should be all good. Some apps have batch resize capibilities.
There are more cacti in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

I keep seeing images that are at horizontal(make the plants photographed going sideways) and users complaining about size
The simplest and effective solutions is
Whatever system you use , a photo editor is used by default on every device,.
With this you can either resize your photo(make it less than 500kb so its upload worthy), crop it(i prefer no to take photos of my walls and furniture), rotate it...etc etc.
I use paint for this, know there is a similar tool on linux systems.
So please dont make me bend my head sideways when i look at bug/id requests.

Thats a web browser. I was refering to operating systems- look up mac paint. it will probably suit your needs.

You are confused. Safari is an operating system. I use DuckDuckGo as my browser. I never heard of Mac Paint, but I do use iMac Preview, and I Mac Photos, and Photo Editor.

Nope. Safari is the default web browsing app for mac operating systems. DuckDuckgo is an internet search engine.
It like this
Safari=mozzilla=google chrome=internet explorer. web browsers
Duckduckgo=bing=google=yahoo. Search engines
macOS=windows=linux operating systems
And yeah if you have the word MAC in your apps, you are using apple products with their own operating systems.
And yeah i had to do programing and informathics classes because i study these things at faculty.
