Uploading Photos

Postby Chuck Jones » Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:04 pm

Basic Instructions for Uploading Photos to The Gallery or Forum Posts

There are two places registered users who are logged-in can upload and share photos on this site:

1. Together with Posts in The Forum

  • Go to the category and forum where you want to post a photo(s).
  • Either REPLY to a previous post or start a new thread.
  • Type your text before or after uploading the photo(s).
  • Scroll down until you can see the three tabs labeled Options, Attachments, Poll Creation.
  • Click Attachments.
  • Click Add Files.
  • Browse your personal computer files to find the photo(s) you wish to upload. Make certain the longest dimension is not more than 1000 pixels, and make certain the file size is not more than 500,000 bytes (500k).
  • On the screen you will see several optional ways to upload photos, one at a time, multiple, drag/drop, etc.
  • Add comments to each entry after it is uploaded if you choose to, or do that later.
  • To place photos in line with your text, click where you want the photo to appear within your text, then click Place inline. Otherwise they will be at the end of the post, shown as attachments, and that's okay.
  • You can add or change your post text before or after the photos you have placed in line.
  • After you have uploaded a photo you can insert it at any point within your text.
  • Photos dimensions are limited to 1000 pixels on the longest side.
  • File size is limited to 500,000 bytes. (500k)
You will probably find most of the steps are self explanatory. Experiment with it and if you get stuck contact and Administrator.

2. The Gallery

  • Any registered user can create albums in the gallery and upload photos to their album(s).
  • Everyone, including non-registered guests can access and view those photos any of several ways.
  • One way is to click on the Gallery link in the upper right part of the screen.
  • You can also go directly to an individual user's albums by clicking on their name almost anywhere you see it, such as under their avatar or in the heading of a post. Another way to find a member's albums is to use the Quick Links menu and select members, find the member, then click their name.
  • The best starting point to create and manage your own albums in the Gallery is your User Control Program. Find your name in the upper right corner of the main screen, click the inverted delta (down arrow) next to your name, and select User Control Panel. Then click the Gallery tab within your UCP (not the Gallery tab in the upper right next to your name). From there it is pretty much self explanatory. Experiment with it and if you have trouble contact and Admin.
