I've noticed that many SOH photo poll images are not displayed as the user intended them to be (sides are usually cut off). For all our sakes...does anyone know a trick to set up those images so they appear correctly?

You first have to find out the size of the image that will be displayed then adjust your picture to fit that size.

I don't even know how to put the little quotes under my name like some of you have.

Go to your profile, tap Edit, and it should be the 4th option down. Tap it and you can change the text. At least that's how it is on Android.

that happened to me with my bunk bed poll. The key is to make sure the picture is square. not in portrait or landscape mode

I use Instagram photo's which automatically get squared.

Try renaming the file first. Makes no sense, but it works for me when I do that.

I can't even use photo polls. I have a kindle.

I always square my images in Photoshop before uploading them to my device so I can post them here. This would also be why I don't post many photo polls. They're a pain.

I use an app called-graffiti designer. It has all the good stuff to set up a poll in the correct aspect along with fonts and backgrounds. Everything ya need in one app. You don't have to crop or adjust the pic you just place it on a square big round

Spell check is fighting with me. Last two words are square background.

Do my photo polls usually appear well? I just crop it into a square in my photo album before posting.

Yeah, yours look good! Sometimes people post photo polls with a lot of wording and 1/4 of the wording gets cut off.

Yeah I noticed. But yeah I just edit the photo and make it a square and it's all set. It has to do with the proportion and size of the pic

I use an app called "instasize" for Instagram but you can give it a try for this.

Shazam knows. He's mentioned to other users what photo-editing app he uses to size them properly (& add text to them). I can't remember the name of it, but if he doesn't turn up here, I'd suggest sending him a message.

320 pixels by 320 pixels is the right size.

Crop the picture and changing the aspect ratio to square before uploading. The cropping feature in the iThings works fine, or you can use an app like SquareAspect. If you are taking pictures to use, set your camera to take square pictures.

Use square pictures and resize them, which you can do in a few apps, but I know and like ArtStudio.
Not sure what size they should be.

You'd have to resize the image before uploading it to the poll.

I'm not sure what you'd have to resize it to, but you could figure it out after a few tries or you could just ask Tony.

Shazam might know, he does a lot of picture polls and I don't think I've seen any of his being cut off.

It doesn't matter what the dimensions are - it just has to be a square. :)

I recall one user telling another how to do this, but I can't remember who it was. I think they were telling UsNavyVet.

I think a lot of people would! Sometimes I can't even vote because the images don't show enough info.
