How do you post a vertical picture in Facebook?  My daughter just learned to tie her shoes and the incentive was a high-top pair of sneakers (lots of lace!)  When I tried to post a picture of her wearing the shoes on Facebook, the picture was truncated into a square picture--you couldn't see the sneakers at all!
I ended up deleting the picture and comment because it just didn't make sense without being able to see the shoes.

Suggestions?

My experience is that pictures only truncate on the newsfeed or front page of your profile.  Sort of like a thumbnail.  If you click on the photo and view it in an album, you will see the entire picture.

That's where I wanted to post it--on my front page.  Hmmm...

Thanks for the answers to my baby shower questions. (Yes, it's family politics and also I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.)

If it's posting as a thumbnail image on your front page, can you just add a note that says, "Click the picture to see her new shoes!"

I notice a lot of people here commenting on something being British. My question is, if you are British do you identify as that or rather English/Scottish/Irish/Welsh? My husband is Scottish and I don't think he thinks of himself as a Brit, but as a Scot. (and now an Aussie).

I identify as British because I have both English and Welsh grandparents.  Plus the cross of St George has been hijacked by unpleasant political groups that scare me a lot - frankly, I'd rather be just Welsh. :(

In the US some groups I suspect are similar have taken the Celtic Cross as their symbol. Ironic since they don't consider Celts to be human.

The picture is too small to tell.

Could you post a larger picture, and maybe a few more from different angles? I can't tell anything from the picture you have. Or maybe describe it a bit, what it is made of, measurements, that sort of thing.

Umm, I can try. It took me a while to figure out how to get this far. May have to pose another stupid question first. :D It's a square glass flat plate, made by a company called Sia (there's a sticker on it), with pretty floral pattern in white. Hope that helps while and try and figure out the size issues. Thanks! x
