It is not always clear what exactly goes on in a given receipe, except that you can tweak some of the parameters. It's a bit like driving a car and not knowing how the engine works. But you get where you want to be
Yes, I agree that posting can be challenging, especially if you post from your gallery.
It is a little easier if, as I recommend, you post within the Forum using an image sized at 1200 pixel on longest side as maximum and no larger then 300 megapixel in overall file size. That way, everyone sees your image larger.
