I must admit I struggle a bit with an iPhone.  A quick if crude way to reduce the file size is to email the photo to yourself. There is an option, on my phone anyway, to reduce the size.   Just save the posted picture and use it on the forum.

For apple, as for android, there must exist many dozens or more image\photo editors to choose from if one needs more\better functions than comes with the phone.

Am -highly- recommending Snapseed, excellent stuff.

Or\and check out the photoshop apps.

^^^ picture in post above 216 kB, 1011x718 pixels, somewhat on the small side, but looks ok no problem.

Anything in a range from 1400x* to 2000x* will display very nicely at 100% view on most (every) device in use these days. And filesize stays low.

Hi not sure what I am doing wrong but every time I try and upload an avatar from my Apple photos it displays upside down.  Even if I turn the photo through 180o it still shows upside don’t on the forum!

Hello sorry for late reply. Doing nothing wrong, it's some strange thing that happens with some ios photos, will show ok on phone and sometimes ok in some browsers, but exif still saying 180 deg rotated, got no explanation.

Try doing the orientation fix in Snapseed (excellent pic editing app, available for ios) or other picture editing app, then save as a new image. If still problematic, post the picture as attachment here, and I'll edit the orientation + add it as avatar in your profile.

Thanks
