Unfortunately the photo I want is on my Macbook so I'll have to transfer it, and of course find out how to reduce the size. It's a long time since I've done these things.

What works for me, email it to yourself, open on iPad, take a screenshot, use editor to crop if needed, then upload no need to resize.

I found all that quite easily Jan, but the choose file 'button' didn't work when I clicked on it. I've now tried it on my iPad and it works there. I now need to put the photo I want on my iPad.

I did it!

Thanks for all your suggestions. It wouldn't have worked if I didn't have the iPad.
