Image uploading workaround for iPhone users...
Author: MrMRL

1.) After you you take your picture, edit/view it in the photos app and tap the share icon (square box with arrow poking out). 

2.) At the bottom of the screen, slide across until you find the icon Save to Files. Tap the icon to save the selected image to a folder. (I’m using the Pages folder at the moment).  

This copying action changes the file format of the selected image(s) to (.jpg) a recognized upload format for the Trainorders server.  

3.) on Trainorders.com now when attatching a file to your post, choose the Browse option instead of Photo Library to select your desired image from the list.

Now I have questions.  I have an Iphone 5S.  When the picture is in my phone, I have an edit feature.  If I tap that feature, I can then edit the pic in the standard ways.  

What am i missing in your explanation?     I have no share icon.

Michael, I believe the share icon will appear either below or above your image depending on your iPhone's orientation (vertical/horizontal) before you tap the edit feature. You should still be able to edit the image on your phone (crop, color correction, level, etc...), but the share icon will not be visible while editing the image. Once your edits are saved and you are back to simply viewing the adjusted/corrected image, the share icons should appear as I mentioned, either above of below the photo depending on your phone's orientation. The exact placement may depend on which iOS version your iPhone is running. I'm currently using an iPhone Xs Max running iOS 12.3.1

Mine doesn’t convert to .jpg It stays as a .HEIC file.
