How to scan an obituary newspaper clipping. Seems to be more difficult and not user friendly than it was before?

I have been attempting to upload an obituary newspaper article into my mother's profile, along with a birth certificate, etc. - cannot do so. Very difficult. Much more so than when I uploaded items a couple of months ago? So ... I decided to scan it into WiKiTree - also cannot do it.

Why is WiKiTree so difficult and tedious to use?

I am a big fan of my digital camera. Take a couple of photos of your documents, download the photos onto your computer, make sure you save them as jpegs (not TIFF files), and you should find it goes smoothly.

Good luck.
