Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the item, including marks, labels or signatures.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

I am old school and new to this iPad and I do not know how to do all you ask of me ..
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 7 months ago

It is not you. The ipad is not ideal for using this site.

If you have a desktop computer and log on to the site there, you will see that

it is easier to navigate here and add photos. If that is not possible, I understand.

Here are emailing instructions for ipad;

With an ipad, you can take photos and email the files to *****@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me within 48 hours. This email way just takes longer. You start an email on your ipad, use the *****@******.*** address and put "forCustomerquot; in the subject line then attach photos that you took of the item in the email. The email should have a paper clip or camera icon that helps you add photos from your photo gallery on the ipad.
